You guys already know how much I loved Budapest and ending my journey at the stunning Corinthia Hotel was simply magical. One of the things that impressed me the most about the city is the architecture and I was looking forward to experience a stay in this iconic hotel. If you’re looking for a romantic getaway in the capital, this place is for you.
Last minute trips are always the best ones! I booked a flight to Romania last week for some paperwork and since I ended up running all my errands on the first day, I was able to organize a getaway in a city that I always wanted to visit: Budapest. I actually have hungarian blood (my mom’s side) and was really looking forward to discover this historical gem. After one of the best 5 hours drive through the countryside, we finally made it to Hungary. Me and Fred couldn’t keep looking out the window and admire the breathtaking architecture. We couldn’t wait to check-in at The Magazine Hotel!
This is how my ideal Sunday looks like :). I spent last week-end at the 7 Islas Hotel in Madrid and already checking my calendar to plan my next getaway. Madrid has a special place in my heart. I just love the energy of this city so much! With so many good restaurants, unique shops and trendy hotels I might start looking for an apartment there sooner or later!
Each year I go through the same debate – what to do on my birthday. I always end up spending quality time with family and friends but this year was definitely different since they are on the other side of the ocean. After some talks with Fred we decided we wanted to go somewhere exotic (beach please), with some fun activities (when laying down in the sun is enough – is that even possible? ha!) and good food. We literally took out the world map and this is when the Canary Islands came up.
One thing I was really excited about when I moved to Europe was roadtrips. So many beautiful sights at only few hours drive away! When we started to plan our getaway to Lisbon I knew I wanted to stop in the portuguese countryside for a night or two before heading to the city. I’m telling you, Portugal is probably one of my biggest surprise of 2016 and my visit at Torre de Palma might have helped a little :P.
