Drink the wild air

Hi guys,

Are you over my holiday pics? I surely hope not, cause here I am, with another post :). As I previously mentioned, I don't follow a particular order, so today I'm showing you bits and pieces of Costa Brava, Spain. I must confess: when it comes to beaches, I didn't find a place that could beat Greece yet(I've only been to Europe, so you can understand my level of comparison). I liked Croatia, and it seems like I would have liked Costa Brava just as much, hadn't it been for the massive crowds: apparently, we weren't the only ones on holiday, the entire french and spanish population was there on the beach, with us. Other than that, the views were spectacular, the water was clear and the rocks made for a pretty good snorkeling place. We would basically sleep throughout the entire day and at sunset we would go for a walk and explore the surroundings.

On this particular day, before heading to our hotel in Figueres, we stopped to Girona to have dinner. We went to what was probably the best restaurant of the entire trip: Lleva Tapas. The food was amazing, the staff were very friendly and it proved to be one of the highlights of our holiday.

Hope you'll enjoy the photos! Many hugs!

Love on Top



Hi guys,

I'm back with new pictures from my recent holiday. On our first day in Provence, being a bit tired from the trip from Lyon to Avignon, we stopped for lunch in Orange. It was so hot that day... we were melting. We did our best to ignore the heat and visited the Roman Theater. I must say, it is really impressive and I would have loved to attend a concert in such a venue, but we hadn't booked in advance and somehow couldn't fit it into our schedule for the next days.

We left Orange and arrived in Avignon in the afternoon, left our luggage at the hotel and decided to go somewhere nearby, since we had less than half a day before sunset. We chose Baux-de-Provence, which was the perfect place to start our adventure in Provence. On our way there, we stopped by the Carrieres de Lumieres: this is a former quarry with images and painting projections on the walls, and incredible music that fits perfectly into the atmosphere. I've never seen something like this before, it was amazing and I would totally recommend going there if you happen to visit the area.

We then followed to road to Baux-De-Provence, which is just spectacular. First of all, it is located on a rocky outcrop and it has a ruined castle at its highest point, overlooking an amazing display of vineyards, plains, olive trees... it's simply a breathtaking view.

Inside the small town you can find lots of cozy restaurants, shops and narrow streets. But because we were eager to visit yet another village, we decided to have dinner in Saint Remi de Provence, another charming, very animated place that we absolutely adored!

I really hope you'll enjoy the photos, and I'll soon come back with more!

Have a wonderful week ahead!
