Shots of Valencia

Hi there,

Finally a new story!! A couple of weeks ago I went on a trip to Valencia. This city can be added to my list of favourite places. I really enjoyed the cute little streets and the colourful houses.

Moreover, this city has it all! There are a lot of cultural sights to visit, but if you’re more a modern kind of person; modern architecture is represented too at the Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències. Besides, there are cute little shops and if you’re up to take a walk at the seaside or just to get tanned at the beach; that is also possible. So, you have several options for the day.

While walking through the cultural part of Valencia, I ran into so many beautiful spots; every corner and every building is worth photographing, for sure. I can imagine that being constantly in a crowdy city makes you feel a little bit restless. Well, if you take the bus half an hour to a place nearby; you will find a beautiful lake. It is completely the opposite of the city side; all peaceful and quiet. There is a possibility to take a boat and sail through the reed, where you can see a lot of birds and ducks.

Are you going with me through my little photodiary?

São Miguel

New week, new weather! And how I hate those rainy days here, so it’s the perfect day to review my trip to the Azores. I visited one of the 9 islands of the Azores-group; São Miguel. When you need a total relax-vacation, this island will definitely be a good choice. It has an amazing nature and that brings you to wonderful views and nice walks down the lakes. This place has its charm by not having busy and overpopulated cities; São Miguel has tiny peaceful villages instead and that’s even lovelier.

However this island doesn’t have that much shops in its cities (actually, the villages don’t have plenty to offer; there are not even much local people on the streets), and as much as I love shopping, the islands breath-taking nature has topped that off for the week. Let’s see if you agree with me 🙂 (see pictures below).

With love,
Milou

From the 9th until the 12th of July, the local people had a religion-related celebration. There were all kinds of traditional activities in the city, very impressive.

Every view is wonderful on this island, and most of all: green!
