The Colosseum or also known as the ‘Flavian Amphitheater’ is an extremely well known tourist attraction based in Rome, Italy. It had been something that I’ve always wanted to experience. I had seen photo after photo of it but I don’t think anything could have prepared me for how huge it was and the over whelming feeling of the range of emotions people would have felt there back in its prime. Today on Wandering in Wanderland, Wander with me through the Roman’s Colosseum.
For the first part of my ‘wandering through’ series – I’m taking a walk through Montmartre in Paris, France. Montmartre is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to and every time I go to Paris, I have to go and find something new!
Iceland is known for it’s many huge and fantastic waterfalls. Iceland definitely did not disappoint. We had our planned ‘stop offs’ but even when driving – you could spot waterfall after waterfall – each better than the last. Mixed with the dramatic waterfall – bad or good – the waterfalls were beyond amazing. At one point, with the high winds we even saw a waterfall going the wrong way – as in upside down.
Today on the blog – I’m finishing the Icelandic series and giving you some Waterfall Wanderlust.
Iceland is packed full of tours that tourists can go on that see all the top spots but when my friend L ( who can drive ) decided to come to Iceland – I jumped on the chance to rent a car for the trip. Here is what you should think about when self driving Iceland.
Iceland has quite a few lagoons throughout the country! The two I had heard of before traveling there was, of course, the world known Blue Lagoon and ‘the cheaper version’ Secret Lagoon. I have seen many bloggers try to compare the two to help fellow travellers decide which one to go to. I’m here to tell you that you can’t. They are completely different and here I will tell you how.
While on our weekend trip to Iceland, we managed to squeeze in some black sand beaches on the south coast and boy was I glad that I did! Out of everything we did, the Black Sand beaches surprised me the most. They were spectacular and I haven’t seen anything like it before!
For part of my short and sweet Iceland series, I’m starting by giving you guys a gift. It took me the best part of a sunday afternoon to make our itinerary to ensure that we saw all what Iceland had to offer in just 2.5 days. Yep, you heard me 2.5 days. Of course, we never saw it all and trust me when I say, I’ll be back but for now I’m giving you our self drive itinerary for the golden circle and part of the south coast! Ya’ll can thank me later!
Heading to Paris for Valentines day? or going on a trip with your friends? Now I am no where near to being ‘clued up’ about Paris or Parisian Lifestyle. However, after a recent trip, I left with some top tips for a first timer like myself!
I recently flew out to Paris in France for a post christmas treat after working so hard during the holidays. We arrived to a gorgeous sunset but after that the weather remained pretty gloomy! Paris had been on my destination list since I watched Mary-Kate and Ashley’s ‘Passport to Paris’ and now I had finally arrived I started thinking ‘was Paris really all that?!’
Think of a dream. A dream that you’re blissfully wandering around a place. There’s harps playing and artists painting. There’s smells of food floating around and pink houses to be marvelled at. Could this be a place? Yep, it’s Montmartre in Paris.
