North Iceland is home to the beautiful lake region of Myvatn. With an area of 36.5 square kilometers, it is Iceland’s fourth-largest lake, although its size is just one of the qualities that attracts guests throughout the year. It is also home to some incredible geological formations, with a great flora and fauna and it is surrounded by many incredible sites.
Just outside Reykjavik, ready to go on a road adventure in Iceland, Hotel Laxnes welcomes the traveler with typical environments in a truly strategic location.
3300 km of Icelandic roads.
Narrow roads, paved roads, dirt roads, sun, rain, fog, mountain roads, gravel, paved roads, unpaved roads, men at work…
At least 30 sheep that crossed the road, thousands at the side of them, numerous birds at risk of being run over.
The story of Santorini tells about sea and fire, about submerged cities and vanished civilizations, about sunsets and volcanoes. If you plan to visit Greek islands, you will surely have browsed a guide and come across a view of Santorini, with the blue domes, which act as a union between the sky and the sea passing through the white of the houses.
It’s a perfect destination for Easter and for spring holidays, with a mild climate and easily reachable from many Italian airports with low-cost flights. If Malta surprises you, a long weekend with children in Gozo will give you a unique experience.
What do you know about the great forests of the North? Pilke in Rovaniemi, nestled in Finnish Lapland just a stone’s throw from the Arctic Circle, is the right place!
Paris is one of the most romantic cities in the world: what better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than to enjoy a weekend in the Ville Lumiere?
I’m gonna be all the way out there, all the way fucking out there. Just on my own. You know, no fucking watch, no map, no ax, no nothing. No nothing. Just be out there. Just be out there in it. You know, big mountains, rivers, sky, game. Just be out there in it, you know? In the wild. (Into the wild, 2007)
Sleeping in an igloo. A dream just for kids?
Rome is the Eternal City, with a thousand monuments, always filled with culture and Italian beauty… but it is so hard to find a good family hotel in Rome!
Northern Finland has variegated traits: the atmosphere is rather rural and becomes almost remote towards the border with Russia, overlooking the Gulf of Bothnia you begin to breathe a more cosmopolitan and maritime air.
That’s how after Karelia, Kajaani, Rovaniemi and Lapland, we discovered another face of Finland, visiting Oulu, Finland’s fourth largest city, boasting a Swedish past and that is now a favorite destination for thousands of tourists and national and international business travellers.
If you think Scandinavia is the home of design, you’re not mistaken. But if you think Finland has a marginal role, well, this time you’re wrong!
Finland not only gave birth to Alvar Aalto but it is also the real home of design: it is not only Artek, the Finnish design company founded in 1935 by Alvar and Aino Aalto, it’s Iittala, Marimekko, Arabia, Aarikka, Jopo… Design comes in daily and you will easily find Iittala glasses in bars and restaurants, as well as napkins and paper glasses of Marimekko offered in Finnair flights. In the end, the sense of design is just that, in everyday life!
We live near the sea, on Italian Adriatic coast, we lived abroad in many cities on the sea, we traveled so much… and after the long weekend spent at Vivosa Apulia Resort my question was: why didn’t we travel here before?!
Salento stole our heart, and the merit is not only a locality that represents an Italian tourist excellence: the merit is mainly of that paradise that Vivosa Apulia Resort represents and which is sublimated by location in Salento.
How many times in your childhood did you write the letter to Santa Claus and on the envelope the address was “Santa Claus, Napapiiri, Arctic Circle”?
Until when children believe in Santa Claus?
If they call it the Paris of Finland there is a reason!
Turku, Finnish capital during Swedish domination, has Paris’s sparkling atmosphere, certainly less composed than other Finnish cities. It is young, thanks to the many students attending the university, dynamic, crossed by the river Aurajoki that, just like the Seine, marks the rhythm of bars, restaurants, cruises and nightlife.
Turku has left a special place in our heart, perhaps a little nostalgia because it was the last stage of BlogTour dedicated to Finland, perhaps because we could not devote to this beautiful city the time we wanted. And that surely it would have deserved.
