Summer vacations are the most wonderful time of the year, right? I think that everyone or every family has their own unique holiday routines. My husband and I, we love going on a vacation to a sunny destination for a great warm weather. The tan from these destinations always fade but the memories last forever. This time round, our prefered  holiday  destination was to the Island of Rhodes. Continue reading

 

On our visit to Paris,  Louvre Museum was one of the museums that I looked forward to visit. It is the world’s largest art museum,  the world’s most visited museum and a historic monument in Paris. Located on the right bank of the Seine, the Louvre  is huge and you could literally spend a whole week walking through it and not see everything.

The Louvre building was first used as a medieval fortress with the aim of protecting the French capital during the reign of Philippe Auguste (1190-1202).  It became a museum in 1793. The Louvre has since housed thousands of works of art from ancient cultures (Oriental, Egyptian, Greek, and Roman) as well as Western and Islamic civilisations. It exhibits extensive collections of sculptures, objects, paintings, drawings, and archaeological findings.

The City of Lindos

My husband and I visited one of the Greek Islands; Rhodes. We chose The Island of Rhodes because of its combination of the nice weather, beaches, archaeological sites and extensive medieval town. The climate in Greece is typical of the Mediterranean climate: mild and rainy winters, relatively warm and dry summers. The perfect vacation destination for the Summer holidays.

Don’t you love holidays? I think everybody does. Personally, I love holidays because I think that it’s the perfect time to reflect and meditate, which of course leads to making our lives better and those around us.

When we arrived in Rhodes, it was incredibly warm, contrary to the weather we had left in Belgium. It was like a time to roll and a secret escape kind of holiday.  It was  also my first time in Greece and l could not wait to explore the Island and to learn  the Greek culture.

From my previous travel blogs, I think that it’s evident that we love excursions. Thanks to my husband, he is multilingual and good in reading the maps. After a day of enjoying the sun at the beach, we had a perfect excursion plan; A day in the city of Lindos. Continue reading

One of my favourite towns in Europe that I really enjoy visiting, is Sluis. It is a small town in the West of the Southern Holland. It’s just a few kilometres from the coast and sits right on the Dutch-Belgian border, which makes it a popular day-trip destination for Dutch and Belgian visitors.

The first time that I ever visited Sluis, I was really surprised by the number of sex shops in such a small town. This was one of the culture shock for a Kenyan girl. It’s not possible in Kenya to find sex shops all over and  I can’t imagine how the reaction would be from the older generation.

I am always open to learn new stuff and I had a chance to visit several sex shops. A sex shop is just like normal shop, the only difference is that they sell sex  merchandise. You can find anything related to sex including sexy clothing to the extreme attributes in different sizes, color and shapes to suit the preference of the customers. Continue reading

Last but not least on our trip to Barcelona, I think that it’s gonna be an injustice, if I don’t share about our experience of the most recent, beautiful and breathtaking park in the city; Parc Diagonal Mar. This Park is located near the Diagonal Mar shopping mall.

After indulging ourselves in a shopping spree, we decided to take a stroll heading towards the beach. This led us to the Parc Diagonal Mar, where all its pathways lead to the beach. We walked through this beautifully designed green park, full of modern art and stylish structures. A perfect place to stroll around and take some sun or to sit on a beautifully designed bench to catch the abundance of sunlight or even watch the sunset. There is also a large children’s play area, a raised walkway over water, the lake with sculptures which spray out water and the curved tubular structures. It is a breathtaking sight.
