Narrow cobbled-stoned shopping streets, old buildings, craft and jewellery shops, the markets, history; venetian port built by Italians as a fort and trade point in the 14th Century and of course the smell of the sea. Chania is one of Greece most photographed cities. Go if not for the enchanting views of the old venetian harbour (venice vibes), then for its tavernas, cafes and restaurants serving local food and fresh sea-food greek style, washed down with shots of Ouzo or Raki. Beautiful…

At the mention of Greece everyone’s mind goes to the beautiful white coastal houses on Santorini. There are many other magical places Greece has to offer that would not drill a hole in your pocket such as Platanias in Crete, Greece’s biggest island. We stayed at Santa Helena Beach Resort off the main street in Platanias. The main street is littered with restaurants, hair salons, supermarkets, tourist companies and shops! Santa Helena is a 4 star hotel and offers four types…

For its crystal clear turquoise blue green waters and white sand with pink hues, Elafonissi Beach sat at no. 30 on Forbes list for Worlds Best Beaches 2017 … It lays on the southwestern side of Greece’s biggest Island Crete. This week I got on the road with friends for a 1hr 3o minutes drive from Platanias to Elafonissi and it was Paradise. The wind caused a beautiful ripple effect on the waters, I felt I was in the carribean…

Paris is a city too grand for words, the french are known for many things amongst which their opulence! French extravagance sits  deep in their history and it is evident in how much gold garnishes their many gothic style buildings. Wealth was invested in their architecture and palaces( almost every building in Paris at least looks posh!). How passionate they were and still are about beauty, fashion, art and music!  Put it on your bucket list and plan towards it…

The weather last Saturday was perfect and in Norway that almost always calls for a hike or as they say ‘å gå på tur’ I went on my first hike adventure since moving up here and it was fun. Mostly because we got lost in the forest…here is a little story of how it went…Norwegians are very ‘out-doorsey’ – I have heard this many times before and after I moved and it is certainly no cliché. As a city girl… ‘my…

Spent my weekend on a group cabin trip to the mountains…Specifically Monsetertoppen in Hafjell… The nature up there was breathtaking. Freezing temperatures but beautiful snow capped views and a pleasant group made it all worth it… Did not attempt skiing or snow boarding though…I wasn’t reaaaaddyyyy (financially too, haha), went for short hikes with plans in my head for snowboarding the next time I go up there! Going on cabin trips to the mountains also known as ‘Hyttetur’ in norwegian is a…
