Destination: Sintra
Highlight: Palacio da Pena

During our stay in Lisbon, we took a one day trip to the famous neighbouring town Sintra. It is famous for Palácio da Pena, the bucolic city center and it's narrow streets and for the travesserio cookie.
Destination:Porto - Portugal
Highlight: Clérigo’s Tower

Easily the most recognisable symbol of the city, Clérigo’s tower is for Porto what Burj Khalifa is for Dubai. Unfortunately, it has no elevator up to the top, so expect a rough climb through a narrow, dark, 250 year old corridor.

Destination: Gaia - Portugal

Highlight: Serra do Pilar

On the other side of the Douro river lies the city of Gaia, where the Port Wine rests in the cellars until it’s ready to be served. At the top of Serra do Pilar

As we made our approach to Cannes, we could see private jets and helicopters in the air and black shiny limousines with their chauffeurs for as far as the eyes can see! We were in the midst of the celebrity frenzy that...

  Switzerland  
       
   
  Destination: Zurich
Highlight:
Charming old town

 

Zurich is full of contrasts. On one hand elegant old town with 13th century church, on the other big industrial districts with uninteresting gray buildings. Although it is the biggest city in Switzerland, you can feel a certain tone of provincialism, simplicity and most of all tranquillity. 

Destination: Trümmelbach
Highlight: 140 meters of waterfalls

 

Switzerland has millions of wonderful places to go for a hike. We opened a Swiss guide trying to find some nice one-day mountain trip close to Zurich and felt totally overwhelmed with the number of places,
