The parties were bigger. The pace was faster, the shows were broader, the buildings were higher, the morals were looser, and the liquor was cheaper.
Monte-Carlo, the small European version of Las Vegas. The rich and famous playground. Posh casinos, expensive hotels and Ferrari's racing on the streets. No wonder why it has been chosen as one of the locations for James Bond movies. It's one the smallest independent states in the world, yet overflowing with wealth and glamour. They say champagne is the national drink. Chin-chin!
During my stay in Zurich, Switzerland I thought it would be a good idea to visit Liechtenstein. Since it's relatively close and why not visit one of the smallest country in Europe, right? But is it really worth the visit? I mean, is there even anything to see or do in such a small place?
Ah, the city of many statutes! Of all shapes and sizes. Each one trying to tell a different story. I’ve never seen so many in one place before! Traumatised by years of war and later a catastrophic earthquake, as much as 80% of the city has been destroyed. While it might be still poor and developing, it’s certainly trying to reinvent and show its real potential. Nonetheless, it still lacks the attention from the tourists... which is exactly why you should get there, before everyone else does!
From old monasteries and churches to cobbled streets and idyllic lake. Ohrid is one of a kind! The city is known for once having 365 churches. One church for each day of the year. There are still many churches left with a mix of Ottoman and Byzantine architecture. Full of discreet charm, Ohrid makes it hard not to fall in love with. If you’re visiting Macedonia, or even the Balkans, you should put Ohrid on the list of must see places! This hidden gem has been listed as UNESCO’s World Heritage for its cultural and natural beauty. It has been under-the-radar, making it a perfect holiday location if you look to escape the crowds.
Right at the start of the year, I vigorously tried to fill all the bank holiday weekends with a trip abroad. What a better way to go on vacation without taking annual leave from work. During my cheap flight search on skyscanner, Norway popped up in my top results. Stavanger? Never even heard of it! Quick, google search and straight to images. Shock! I didn’t expect to see such amazing pictures from a cheap flight destination. Mountains, fjords, and colourful streets? Sold, booked. Now, it was only a matter of time until I got on that plane and be on my way to Stavanger.
