Bergen is a beautiful, little city with amazing nature to keep you in constant awe. Besides the breathtaking landscape, Bergen also offers delicious, fresh food. I really loved their sea food and their fjord cruise!
Sigtuna was Sweden’s second capital – Birka was the first capital. It’s a very quaint, little town with rich history; it still has some standing ruins.
It’s a great day trip destination with restaurants, historical sites, and shops. The town is surrounded by fun bike paths and a beautiful lake for a nice swim or sunbathing.
A must see!
Amsterdam is a fun and crazy city. You will get a Disney picturesque landscape with a slight edge – alcohol, weed, prostitutes.
I went to Amsterdam by myself and it was quite the experience. I personally feel like it’s a city you go with someone. There is so much energy and experiencing that by yourself can be overwhelming.
But a must go, if you haven’t!
We spent our Easter weekend in Venice. It’s an absolutely beautiful city with lots of history. I also got engaged here so I love it even more!
Our Engagement story:
We went to San Giorgio Maggiore and wanted to go to the top of the tower to see the city. It costs 6 Euros per person and they don’t take cards – we didn’t have any cash on us either. So we went to a nearby cafe and asked a random stranger to buy his lunch with our card for some cash. He just handed us the money without asking for anything in return. We went to the top and it was breathtaking and just so peaceful. My boyfriend didn’t plan on proposing to me up there but I guess he felt the timing was right so he proposed!
I bumped into that kind stranger again when we were on our way down. I was so excited I shoved my hand to his face and was yelling at him to check out my ring. He was confused and slightly frightened, and rightfully so. I told him we got engaged, and then I hugged him and thanked him.
Always have some cash when traveling.
We just had a birthday/going away party (my boyfriend and I are moving to Sweden) at Sbragia Winery this weekend. It was close to 100 degrees Fahrenheit- we were sweating our balls off. But it was so nice to have everyone come together and celebrate this new chapter with us over a beautiful view and delicious wine! I thought I was going to be a bit heartbroken seeing everyone but I am more excited. I have always moved around a lot and have thankfully always met amazing, down to earth people. These friends that I am leaving behind will always be my friends and they will always have a place to stay when they visit. The great thing about moving and traveling is that you have the opportunity to create something special at that place – friends, memories, another place you can call Home. There’s so much beauty in this world – in people, in places, in food, etc. – take the opportunity while you still can and embrace it.
