    Sorrento – The Land Where Lemons Grow

    The truth is, that we didn’t really know much about Sorrento before our visit. A few years ago I saw some photos of the famous Valley of the Mills, which made this sleepy little tourist paradise become an additional item on my travel bucket list. During our stay, however, we realised that besides the mill ruins Sorrento has many other interesting things to offer. For example, this area is the country’s most famous lemon-centre and produces the tastiest Limoncello. Az a helyzet, hogy Sorrentoról nem sok mindent tudtunk mielőtt ide látogattunk volna. Még évekkel ezelőtt láttam néhány fotót a híres Malmok Völgyéről, melynek hatására ez az álmos kis turistaparadicsom azonnal bakancslistás lett…

    Winter City Break in Copenhagen – Day 1

    Flying to Copenhagen for a long weekend was a very spontaneous idea. Will and I wanted to get away from the big city for a few days, so we asked Skyscanner for advice. We only had two criteria: cheap return flights, and a destination neither of us had visited before. That’s how we ended up picking Copenhagen (the truth is: I’ve been to Copenhagen for a half day visit when I was around 15, but a massive gay pride was taking place that day, so I don’t really remember anything else from the city). A koppenhágai hosszú hétvége meglehetősen spontán ötlet volt. Will és én szerettünk volna kicsit kiszabadulni a…

  • Boats, Boats Everywhere…

    Every now and then my mind goes blank and starting a blog post in an appropriate way seems almost impossible. Now for example, I am sitting here for half an hour, staring at these rusty boats, and I have no idea where to begin. Anyway… it was August (yes, I know, I am extremely behind with sharing my life with the world), and Will and I wanted to go for a day-trip somewhere out of London. After browsing Google Maps for a very long time and trying to figure out which seaside town has the most romantic fisherman village look, we ended up choosing Leigh-on-Sea. Néha egész komolyan úgy érzem, hogy szinte…

  • The Jersey Experience: Lazy Day on the Seaside

    The initial plan was to visit Jersey in one day. Early morning flight, we get there right before the Durrell Wildlife Park opening time, spend the day wandering around, and fly back to London in the evening. Luckily, I have a much more experienced sister (/me bowing humbly), who suggested to stay one more day and look around a little bit, because Jersey must be a very cool place. So we stayed. The next morning – after a long and relaxing sleep, but still with numb feet – we were analysing the map in order to decide where to go. After having a short argument, and involving the other guests also having…
