Stanley Hong Kong

Stanley – Hong Kong, the perfect getaway

STANLEY – HONG KONG 

Hong Kong is a cool city, but it can also get crowded and overwhelming at some point. So if you book a trip to Hong Kong, consider visiting at least one of its beaches.  I read a few blogs and browsed through the Lonely Planet and it brought me to the idea to take a little trip further south. After two full days of sightseeing in Hong Kong we were looking forward to enjoy beach life in Stanley, one of the oldest villages in Hong Kong Island.

Cambodia Angkor Wat

Round trip Cambodia – travel video

Welcome to Cambodia, a beautiful country located in South-East Asia. Many years we’ve dreamed about visiting the temples of Angkor and appreciating the diversity of landscapes, from paddy fields and rural sceneries to the beaches in the south. Also, we were particularly excited to taste the authentic Cambodian (Khmer) cuisine. We were told that it’s a fine combination between Thai and Vietnamese food, yet with its own touch.

I used to visit Huanchaco every Sunday with my family. After moving to the Netherlands, I would  come back to this magical place to spend the holidays.

Sicily: west coast, Palermo & Cefalù

Sicily is a gorgeous destination you should definitely have on your travel list. This beautiful island located in southern Italy will conquer your heart once you taste its food, discover its landscapes and history and meet the warm Sicilian people. Our first visit to Sicily in 2010 resulted in an overwhelming trip to the west coast. We started our itinerary in Trapani, a port town with a nice historical city center built in baroque style. We received a great tip from our B&B hosts to visit one of the most romantic places on earth: the neighboring medieval town Erice which is situated on a mountain, overlooking the sea and has no less than 14 churches and a stunning castle. Opposite to Trapani lies the largest of the Egadi Islands: Favigana. You can travel by boat and it’s fantastic for people who love nature, cycling and eating fresh (tuna) fish!

Palermo, the capital of Sicily is quite a rough and chaotic city yet it’s worth to explore its historical buildings and experience the vivid streets. Palermo lies in between two stunning little fishermen towns that I absolutely loved to visit! Catellamare del Golfo (left from Palermo) has one of the most breathtaking views on the shore, colorful boats and mountains. Right from Palermo lies Cefalù, another fisherman town with a beautiful cathedral, charming streets and tasty restaurants. Sicily simply has it all…
