#wheninEdinburgh | top 5 parks to see

In November, I took my first trip ever to the United Kingdom.
Of course, I had some expectations and had created some ideas about how the country looked like.
However, as soon as I reached the city of Edinburgh, my destination, I knew I was wrong.

One of the biggest and wrongest stereotypes when thinking about a British city is that they are grey.
Grey, sad, and rainy.

When in Edinburgh, I walked through the whole city, and discovered incredibly beautiful green spots.

In this post, I want to share with you this almost unknown aspect of the Scottish capital.

Are you ready to take note of the five of them?

BARCELONA – everything happens for a reason | 3 days

Every time I catch a bus, a train, a plane or even just put on my shoes,
that’s when I start my adventure.

And you know, adventure are made of a small quantity of planning, and a lot of changes;
many many photos, some new food, and new stories to tell.
I did it in Elche last summer, as I have been doing for all my life.

But this time, in Barcelona, I realized that every city I go to
actually means something more to me.
Something that is not related to a monument nor a person.
You know when you get back to your room and you are so tired that your mind goes wherever it wants?
Well, that is the moment when I think I have the greatest connection to myself.
I simply feel what I feel, I don’t have any restriction nor obligation,
and I usually am capable of using that moment to reflect.

In Barcelona, I came with the conclusion that everything happens for a reason.

#WheninEdinburgh | 15 things to do

WHEN IN EDINBURGH, you will realize you should have gone there way sooner.
The light, the city, nature, the castles… I felt as if I was living another (beautiful) life.

In Edinburgh, everything was so intense and so unique, that it’s impossible not to enjoy it!

It was quite a short trip, but we managed to check all the things out of the list we made before the departure.

I shared this trip with a very good friend of mine, and we had the chance to celebrate 15 years of friendship – quite an achievement, isn’t it?

While I was gathering information about Edinburgh, I made the mistake to think that there wasn’t much to do in the city.
I couldn’t be more wrong!

Marseille | street and art in 10 photos

Every city has some magic when you wander in its streets.
But, because of different factors, it can be challenging appreciating some of them.
And what is the reason why we love others?

Visiting a city means, to me, to explore it inch by inch and to walk around as much as possible.
Liking a city, on the other hand, means to love its streets, its colours…

VERONA – 10 places to fall in love with

Italy is a country full of history and art, but at times the traditional lifestyle can become too old and restricted for the younger generation.

I spent an entire summer working in Spain, and when I came back, I realized how fascinating the city I grew up in was.

So, let me show you some of the reasons why Verona, a city in Northern Italy, is worth a trip to!
