On a cruise, sliding on the Mediterranean

My first experience aboard a cruiseship

Ah, the smell of the sea. To tell you this story I must start from the very beginning. CruiseTopic (a travel agency specialized in cruises) contacted me in January to ask me a favor: they were looking for a native Croatian speaker to work on their foreign market. Could they find me unprepared? No! So,…

Lis Neris, a paradise among vineyards and hospitality

In San Lorenzo Isontino discovering much beauty

Today I’ll bring you to San Lorenzo Isontino, a small town in the county of Gorizia which is home to only 1500 people. But, in order to tell you this story, we’ll have to go slightly back to the past, more or less to 45 million years ago: at that time, this region was covered…

What to do in Sappada?

Where to sleep, eat and what to do during this ski-resort-less winter.

I promised you. What do you mean “what”? I promised I would collect all the things to do (or rather what I did) in Sappada in a little guide! I fell in love with the place but seen how you’ve reacted to what I’ve told you on Facebook and Instagram, I think I’m not the…

A magical suite with private spa in Gradisca d’Isonzo

A lovely weekend in Friuli Venezia Giulia

A little premise. Here we are, on a thread that swings between fear and insecurity, we’re being bombed with far from reassuring news: we’re tired, stressed and afraid…we’re in the middle of something that has run over all of us and doesn’t spare anyone. There are people that, nonetheless, want to go on, in the…

Mallnitz among skis, snowshoes, chalets and natural parks.

It’s a gracious, small haven in the Carinthian mountains

I want to keep telling you about the places I’ve recently visited in the mountains of Carinthia: if you’ve missed the first part of the tale, don’t worry…here’s the link for you! Here, in the heart of the High Tauern National Park, Mallnitz is the ideal destination for those who look for a direct contact…

Autumn in Alta Badia

Trekking, parties in lodges, paragliding and a lot of wellness

After exactly one year, I came back to Alta Badia, ready to live many new experiences! Here is the article I wrote about these places some time ago 🙂 This time I chose to stay in one of the apartments of Ciasa de Lenz in San Cassiano, more precisely in the Calendula, a place on…

La Perla in Corvara

Unforgettable kitchen, cozy atmosphere, SPA and walks on the Dolomites

And September has come again. I repeat it very often, maybe even too much, but I think this is one of the best months to dive into the nature of the Dolomites: at the end of summer the colors change, tourists aren’t as many as in August and it’s easier to spend some unforgettable days…

Wonderful Grado: here’s what to do

The island of the sun shines in Friuli Venezia Giulia

…find a comfy seat, grab a pack of popcorn and read this article that, I’m warning you, won’t be very short. But to tell you what I’ve done in Grado at best, I have to start from the beginning. During the wonderful 1980s, I still was a child, and this was the usual place we…

At San Rocco’s in Brtonigla there’s a surprise for you!

A MissClaire-signed weekend only two steps away from Trieste!

Would it really be summer if I didn’t come to enjoy at least three days at the San Rocco Boutique Hotel in Brtonigla? Those of you who accurately follow me will know how much I love this little place…I have told you about it many times, like over here and here 🙂 I take every…
