Save Place
Kalverringdijk 29, 1509 BT Zaandam, Netherlands
When in Amsterdam, the best place to view windmills is a 15 minute train ride away in Zaanse Schans. While you're there take a few minutes and visit De Kat. The windmill used to mill paint but now is open to visitors. It might take all of your...
Save Place
Place de la Loge, 66000 Perpignan, France
We were in our last day of hiking on the border of France and Spain, heading down to the sea. It was mid morning and the sun was in prime form for a late September day. You could see our destination in the distance, knowing that we needed to be...
Save Place
Singel, 1012 DH Amsterdam, Netherlands
Since 1862, fresh flowers and plants have arrived by barge from the Dutch countryside to Amsterdam. While this assemblage of flora still shows up daily, it comes by van, not boat, to the Bloemenmarkt, the world's only floating flower market. Here,...
Save Place
Asturias, Spain
"Yeah, I can totally drive a car with manual transmission," said my travel companion. Barreling down the winding roads of the Parque de Picos de Europa, narrowly missing hikers and passersby, I realize that statement couldn’t be further from the...
Save Place
Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland
Amazing snow capped Alps, the greenest grass, and the tinkling of cow's bells in the background.
Save Place
3800 Sundlauenen, Switzerland
While many walked through the streets of the small town, I decided to head along the river and came across this beautiful view of Lake Brienz.
Save Place
Annecy, France
This small Alpine French town really reminds you of Venice.
Save Place
73250 Saint-Pierre-d'Albigny, France
If you ever have a chance to visit the sleepy town of St. Pierre d'Albigny, do it. This is the quintessential French town. Just beautiful. Stay at Chateau des Allues.
Save Place
4260 Bled, Slovenia
Heading to Ljubljana? Don't miss the opportunity for a day trip to pristine Lake Bled, 34 miles away. If the weather's nice, take a couple hours and wander the path around the edge of the lake. It gives you the chance to see Bled Island (Sln....
Save Place
19017 Riomaggiore, SP, Italy
Having been to Italy before, I knew I would likely enjoy my maiden visit to Cinque Terre; I had no idea however, just how much. Riomaggiore is one of five picturesque villages that sit perched high above the Lingurain sea and make up what is...
Save Place
Keukenhof, 9463 Eext, Netherlands
When you enter the park it's like you died and went to heaven but then you realize you're not because of the thousands of people around you pushing and shoving. That is the only con at Keukenhof, everything else is wonderful. You get to walk...
Save Place
Porto Katsiki, Greece
The island of Lefkada is full of beautiful beaches. It's a haven for kite surfers and beach lovers. Porto Katsiki is by far the most breathtaking beach we saw on the island. The dramatic cliffs and incredible hues of bright turquoise water make it...
Save Place
Praça D. Filipa de Lencastre 62, 4050-259 Porto, Portugal
Book Restaurant (which is next door to Infante Sagres hotel) is designed as a library as well and reflects the connection between literature and gastronomy in a very contemporary way. The architect is Pedro Trindade and the chef is John Mendes...
Save Place
Rua de Miguel Bombarda 222, 4050-377 Porto, Portugal
Somehow this Northern Portuguese city has become home to dozens of fantastic hostels, better than most I’ve stayed at elsewhere throughout Europe. You are pretty safe with nearly every one, but Gallery Hostel is my pick because it’s much more than...
Save Place
4050-468, Largo do Colégio, 4000 Porto, Portugal
Walking down from the Cathedral toward the Ribeira in Porto, I came across this beautiful view and the stunning exterior of Iglesia São Lourenço Church. This church was built t by the Jesuits in late 16th century, but after they were expelled from...
Save Place
Rua dos Caldeireiros 261, 4050-142 Porto, Portugal
This is a great spot for a Weekend brunch, especially if it is raining outside. (At least that what happened to me). I loved the contrast between the raw grey industrial walls and the warm chocolate-colored wood furniture and the green plants. The...
