Hiking in Zermatt, Switzerland: 5 Lakes Trail

Switzerland is a heaven for hikers. Every region in Switzerland has a beautiful hiking trail to offer to all types of hikers - from easy to hard, from family-friendly to solo hiking. My favorite hiking trail in the world is in Zermatt - the 5 lakes trail. I try almost every year to do this [...]

The Italian Summer Road Trip: Discovering Piedmont

We initially planned for a summer holiday in Greece but after being told that I need to go to Torino for work, we thought, why not just do a road trip in Italy instead? We didn't have a lot of time to prepare for it, but as they say, spontaneity can be rewarding. True enough, [...]

Restaurant Review: Fou de fafa (Avignon, France)
