Malta – the Jewel of the Mediterranean Sea (3)

It is said that one should always save the best for the last and this is exactly what we’ve done in Malta. We began our journey by exploring the main island, which we thought is simply stunning, than we continued with Gozo, an island that surprised us with its beautiful landscapes, surpassing in my view Malta Island and last but not least, we got to Valletta, the smallest capital city of the European Union and one of the most charming.

Sanap Clifs on Gozo Island, Malta

Malta – the Jewel of the Mediterranean Sea (2)

If you find yourself in Malta, it would be a shame not to take a ferryboat to visit Gozo island and, if you fancy swimming and snorkeling, also Comino. You may think Malta is small and you can get very quickly from one place to the other, but wait to see Gozo. Once you arrive on the island, it will take you less than half an hour to reach the opposite side of it. But although the island is tiny, you can spend at least one day there, as it offers many beautiful spots. Sanap Cliffs After arriving on Gozo […]

Singapore – travel itinerary

I absolutely love to travel, but I also love the anticipation, the research and everything that has to do with planning a trip.

But we want to see as many new places and things as possible, so when we have a couple of […]


About

Hello new friend! My name is Lavinia and I love to travel. I am happily married and extremely lucky that my husband, Bogdan, shares my passion. Although, if I am being honest, Bogdan is the one who was always curious to discover new places and instilled this passion in me. Ten years ago, if you’d asked me, whether I wanted to go on a trip, I would have definitely said no. I would have preferred every time the comfort of my home, instead of the unknown of a new place. But after I took a couple of trips abroad (at […]
