I love traveling. No surprise in that. But I am not the type of traveler who would just leave home with no purpose and no direction. No, I love to have things planned in advance (more or less, depending on the destination), I like to know where I am going and what I will be… Read More Destination Madeira – made for walking!
As I just got back from Andalucia where I had a short, but intense visit, I woke up this morning in the mood for more traveling.

As my holiday in Zanzibar ended right in the… Read More Stone Town – on slaves and doors that open to the past
After a week spent at Melia Zanzibar, we moved for two nights in Chumbe Island.

Last week I told you how I found Lisbon in May, we wandered its streets covered in “calçada” and lined with jacaranda trees in blossom, we crossed the bridges over Tagus river and we stopped at Pasteis de Belem, to enjoy the tasty egg tarts – pasteis de nata. And if all that did not… Read More #I ❤ Lisbon! (II)
