This was our second time on Crete, but this time we had an especially authentic experience being invited to a Cretan wedding. Needless to say the wedding was nothing short of amazing and aside from all of the wedding festivities and food, we did have a chance to explore Crete.
Il Sacro Bosco in Bomarzo looks like a place out of a strange dream, beautiful but slightly eery. Unlike the many other beautiful Renaissance Italian gardens, this garden has a creepy, but astonishing atmosphere, as it’s a mix of demonic and mythical creatures that don’t seem to connect to each other at all.
If you want the ultimate relaxing Greek get-a-way, we recommend the tiny island in the Cyclades, Koufonisia, which is a personal favourite.
Elba Island is right off the coast of southern Tuscany. Typical grapes are Aleatico, Ansonica and Vermentino
A city that is usually not on many people’s ‘European cities to see’ list, is Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina. This city is definitely one to discover, full of magical colours, architecture and culture. We took a road trip through Croatia and Bosnia and experienced these enchanting places first hand.
