Oh Venice. It is a city like no other. A car free city where you can walk everywhere along canals, where the only transport is a boat or a gondola. Venice is unique, different from the rest of Italy, so romantic and charming that you’ll fall in love with it, guaranteed. Below a selection of things you must do when in Venice, as well as how to get there and where to stay, in this Venice Bucket List.
1- Wander the narrow winding streets
If you do one thing in Venice, do this one. It’s free and it’s the one I enjoyed the most. The main streets of Venice may be packed with tourists but if you let yourself get lost you’ll wind up in quiet gorgeous streets where you’ll go like “Ah, this is why everybody talks about Venice”.
If you are reading this you’ve decided to visit Coimbra. Or maybe you are wondering if you should. I visited Coimbra as a day trip during my trip to Portugal, as a stop between Lisbon and Aveiro.
Coimbra is a very interesting and history rich city. It used to be a Roman settlement and some structures of that time remain. It also used to be the capital of Portugal, and is the land of Inês de Castro and King Pedro, two major historical figures of Portuguese history. Also, Coimbra houses one of the oldest universities in the world: Coimbra University.
Would I recommend you visit? Honestly, I had lots of trouble finding the answer to this question before my trip so this is my verdict, having ended up visiting it. I think Coimbra is definitely worth a day or half day stop if you are doing a road trip but wouldn’t recommend you go out of your way to visit it, specially if your visit to Portugal is short (a week).
Now I’ll walk you through everything there is to do in Coimbra, where to stay and how to get there and around.
Visiting Vienna soon, or thinking about it? If the latter, don’t think about it anymore and get tempted with the things you can do in Vienna featured in the list below. I really liked Vienna, I’ve visited twice. It has beautiful architecture and a royal feel, but is relaxed at the same time. My advice is to visit Vienna on a weekend if you live in Europe and for one or two days if you are doing a trip around Europe or Austria. Anyways, these are my bucket list items for Vienna!
I was recently approached by Femme Luxe to write a review of their clothes. As a blogger & influencer, I get a lot of spammy offers to review clothes, many of which involve getting outfits for free but then paying an outrageous amount for shipping (which is a known scam, by the way). The email from Femme Luxe actually came to my spam folder but it was, for once, the real deal.
I headed over to their website and my initial reaction was negative. The model is the same for all photos and is slinky, Kim Kardashian style. That’s definitely not me. I decided to look over the clothes for a bit longer and ended up finding a few things which seemed ok and decided to give them a chance. And was glad I did! I got 4 different items, loved and will continue to use all of them.
