Exploring the green paradise in London – Kew Gardens

It’s been just over a month since I move to London and I have already found my new, favourite place in London – Kew Gardens. It’s a botanic garden in a middle of busy London ( and not any botanic  garden – an UNESCO Botanic garden). A magical place, I must say: quiet, spacious, unique, dreamy and so peaceful that even a peacock is enjoying a stroll there.

If you are searching for an alternative place to visit when next time in London – Kew Gardens is the right spot. In summer they even offer a wide range of outdoor activities including concerts and exhibitions, so make sure you are not missing out.

See for yourself my first impressions last weekend.

Playa del Carmen Christmas getaway was like a dream come true! Putting bikini on during winter period and hit the beach, dance in the sand, swim with turtles and sleep under palm trees! This was probably one of the most longed trip I have ever had in my life – just to get away – far, far away where the sand is white, ocean is blue and the life is colorful just like the murals, city and people in Mexico.

Usually in adventures in new countries I plan many things I wish to try, taste and see, but this was slightly different trip – this trip was to seek a peace, relaxation and a proper getaway to recharge batteries, reflect and reconnect with the life, priorities and simply enjoy life. Read More

Where is the best view in Sicily?

If I can tell you one tip about Sicily, which is totally worth the hustle, than it is – climb Etna, my friend! The best view ever as far as you can see! The air! the clouds! The experience! If traveling to Sicily than adding visiting Etna is a must! Even if not the fittest person or pro hiker – everyone will find something for their fitness level: starting from newbie to pro.

To be honest Etna was my main destination in Sicily and also in my Bucket list. Read More

A blissful road trip to Sicily’s east coast

Ever now and then a girl just needs to have her blissful getaway to recharge her batteries, wind her head and just enjoy the peace and quiet. Especially after having the most stressful summer of your life: long working hours and business travels, dealing with a distance wedding organization, which happens to be your own wedding. Needless to say that after all this is over you desperately need for some peace and quite to return to being just plain & sane you.  My inner self was saved by a sun catching and Ionian coast exploring in Sicily.

And it was just lovely! So colorful, sweet and simple that recommended to anyone to go for a roadtrip in Sicily and see for yourself! Read More

Road trip from Porto to Lisbona – 3 friends exploring Portugal

Between the madness of organizing wedding and business trips I finally have managed to get my hands on my camera and to get all my photos on computer from my last trips including Portugal adventure.

Despite it was just couple of weeks ago, seems that year has passed by as so many things has happened in between. However it is nice to see the pictures and get that lovely nostalgic feeling of the holiday fun with my girls. Already can’t wait to go for a next adventure with them.

We voted for a road trip to get that freedom and luxury to choose what time to wake up, where to stop and what to see on the way so we rented a car. Less we knew that renting car online trough supplier and actually picking it up and having an extra contract would cost us double for insurance, but we learned our lesson to never take insurance online, but directly Read More

Portugal is famous for her sea dishes, especially for sardines, and what could be a better lunch option than having a fresh fish dish at the seaside right after an crazy morning between plane catching, check-in struggles and car renting misunderstandings? For us finding this small , local all-you-can-eat restaurant with fixed sardine menu was the highlight of the day and actually – of all trip as the best local food experience.

Our lunch stop was at – Mar a Vista. This place I came across as best local place recommendations in Trip Advisor. Which actually provided pretty accurate visitor description of the place and the order of the day: ” They bring you grilled sardines, potatoes and salad, then they bring you more sardines, some more potatoes and salad, and than some more sardines and some more sardines, and when you feel like you cannot eat anymore they bring you more sardines…till you stay stop!” ( From our experience – stop was not enough! we had to say “Stop” for 3 times together with “basta,basta!”  and some hand gestures to stop bringing as we had already plenty. But boy, I tell you – those were one delicious sardines!  Read More

” Surfing is a physically demanding sport. You need to be strong, flexible and have excellent endurance. The fitter you are, the longer you’ll be able to surf for. The faster you can paddle, the more waves you’ll get”. This quote by Surfingsite truly sums up the necessity of being in a good physical shape to try out your first surfing experience.

And I can definitely second this statement for being in a pretty good physical shape myself, but still here are some of my suggestions what helped me to get the best out of my first surfing lesson in Portugal last week. Read More

Who doesn’t know Milan? Capital of Fashion, Design and Inspiration of many artists as well as models, starlets and celebs. A wonderful place to soak-in culture, get creative and be inspired. However last years been noticing that Milan is improving more also on healthy food trends and following the global trend for urban cities offering bigger and wider healthy lunch selection. What makes foodies, vegans and healthy eaters happier and life easier ( talking of leaving that pre-packed salad at home and going out with friends for lunch).

This time wanted to share with you one of my favorite, healthy hot-spots of Milan – That’s Vapore. This place is truly green (in thinking and interior) offering a nice concept lunches served in baskets that are freshly prepared every day. Milan there are just 2 places but they are expanding and opened their first place also in London (Baker Street) as well.  Read More

If been following my adventures than already know that last week were in Tel Aviv for work and as were there for 4 days than I had to adjust my workout schedule to the travel one doing my workouts on the road. Luckily form me in my hotel (Carlton – which, BTW, is A-mazing!) had also gym facilities so put my mind on peace and packed my workout equipment before hitting the road. 

As a determined lady who never skips leg day, I woke up along with the sunrise and to hit the gym. Not because I would be an early bird, but because when I am on the road there is just no way to find a time for an evening workout so prefer to rise with the birds to have one.

Isn’t the view lovely? This view is definitely worth the early wake up despite the hard time getting out of the bed. Read More

How to get the best of Tel Aviv on a busy working schedule

So I am back from my crazy work travel in Tel Aviv and I must say it was one adventurous ride despite of the business trip. Definitely not the calmest and most peaceful place to visit nowadays to get a peace of mind. My mom was petrified when told her I have to go there for work, but I honestly can tell you that I was kind a looking forward this trip as always wanted to see the place as in my mind it was so different – enchanting in a way, and when occasion arose that I had to go there to represent my company in an event – I had all those mixed feelings – thrill for having a new adventure and slight fear of unknown and newspaper headlines flying by of all terrorist attacks, bombing and everyday war alerts..

However  my collaborators and partner living there was truly welcoming and helpful organizing everything (even airport pick-up ) that made matters easier and once they sent me the hotel recommendations along the beach – all my doubts were out of the window and couldn’t wait to go. Read More
