Greece, my love! Stories from Corfu island

I always loved going to the sea. My great loves are the summer and the sea, this fatal combination always has the power to deeply relax and make me very happy. After a holiday in Greece, life has a much tougher and more beautiful taste, and the memories you make there and the pictures you take in your heart will stay there the year round. Only when you hear something about that pearl of Europe, a smile will instantly appear on your face. It is a balm for muddy, stressful and tiring days. Greece, my love. Our adventure took place in Corfu. From Bucharest we started on the road and the first stop was obviously in Thessaloniki. By car from Bucharest to Igoumenitsa port, from where you get on the ferry to the island of Corfu, it is around 1000 km. We preferred a stop on the way to rest and visit the city of Thessaloniki if it was on our way. The fuel costs around 350 euros for a return journey, and the ferry tax is about 50 euros for a car and 2 passengers. 1. Thessaloniki was founded by Cassandra of Macedonia [5] in 315 BC, and so named in honor of his wife, daughter of Philip II, Thessalonica, the step-sister of Alexander the Great. The name of Thessalonica comes from the contraction of the Greek words of Thessalian ( Thessalón, in Greek: "thessali") and victory ("victory"), commemorating the victory of the Macedonians over the inhabitants of Focida, with the...

Discover Bulgaria

When it's hot outside and it's officially summer, wherever you are, the thought is still flying on vacation! You do not have to have 2 weeks at your disposal and a few thousand euros to taste from Paradise. Because it's only a border distance away! I was happy to discover Bulgaria. Every time I had a free weekend and started the season, we went to the sea on the Romanian seaside, but one day we decided to go a little further. Just three hours away from Bucharest, Bulgaria surprised me in a very pleasant way. We found wonderful places for the most epic photos, we found white and fine sandy beach beaches and crystal clear water, a green oasis, lots of history, a castle, a beautiful botanical garden, and people ready to make your holidays more beautiful. At prices similar to those on our seaside, if not even more convenient sometimes cost / price ratio, Bulgaria is a great idea for a short escapade. Just as much as you need to recharge your batteries and enjoy the summer until the long-awaited trip comes. Spread over a length of nearly 400 km, the seaside in Bulgaria includes a spectacular variety of resorts and towns where you can spend your holiday with your family or a bunch of friends. It is impossible for someone not to find a destination to his liking and not to enjoy beautiful beaches and quality tourist services. Here's what we managed to discover and we fell in love irremediably.   1.Tyulenovo It is a favorite...

Florence, is the capital of the Italian region of Tuscany and the province of Florence. It is situated on the Arno River and is known for its history and importance in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, especially for its arts and architecture.

In addition, Florence is considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world and art, historical and cultural heritage and today retains major impact in the world. In 1982 was declared by UNESCO as World Heritage. The De Medici family has ruled the city for three centuries. At a time when the wars were in great power, De Medici were among the first to have other interests, figuring out the potential of art. They had plenty of money, the most important bank in Europe at that time, so they created a culture of art in Florence that have hosted, supported and paid a "certain" Brunelleschi, Michelangelo and Botticelli. The rest is history. Each bit of...

Walking through Washington D.C.

This week we arrive in Washington DC, the capital of the United States of America. Washington was named after George Washington, first President of the United States and Founding Father and governs the good course of US domination over the West since 1790. It does not belong to any state, has the status of an independent federal zone what is called the District of Columbia or simply DC. The city is also one of the most visited cities in the world, with more than 20 million tourists annually. A city full of elegance and refinement of tranquility and stylish people. The place where you can learn and deepen the history of this highly patriotic people. White House, Lincoln Memorial, The Capitol are just some of the sights you can visit and from where you can find a lot of interesting information. What is even more wonderful is that monuments and memorials are open 24 hours a day and visiting it is free of charge. Unlike New York or LA cities that are always full of tourists and they are agitated and noisy, Washington is full of tourists and yet it is extremely clean and quiet. I think that simply the vibration of the place and the way people are inspire the tourists and make the behave differently. I was glad to see people riding a bike in a suit, everything is so stylish and full of taste there, from streets to cycling. Haha. The architecture of Washington varies greatly. Six of the top 10 buildings...
