Bergamo – Italy

A couple of years back, I visited the amazing city of Bergamo. If you haven’t heard or visited  this city before, it’s really a shame. It’s not far from Milan, approx 40 km away.  Actually, when you fly from London (or any other place) to Milan, some airways arrive at Milano Bergamo Airport.

This was a day trip to this city, so I did not really had much time to spend in the city but I do believe I had seen the best of it! And the pictures will confirm it! 🙂

I was very tired to be honest as I hadn’t had any sleep for 24 hours but it was all worth it! I travelled from London to Milan Bergamo with RyanAir as they had the cheapes tickets available. I spent a total of approx. £40 (return)

 

I strongly recommend you book your tickets in advance, maybe a month or so.. If you want to fly cheap.

National Geographic Entry

I’ve always loved to take pictures.. of everything mostly, that I found interesting/beautiful/breathtaking etc.  So came the day when I decided to upload an entry to a National Geographic Contest. Fingers crossed! xx

I am not a professional photographer, but I like to think that I do have the “thing” for it.

And of course, I do not have such expensive and beautiful cameras and all their accessories. And I do not have the skills necessary to edit a photo professionally.. but hey, as they all say: It’s never too late for anything!

If you like the picture I took, please do click on the following link to be redirected to the National Geographic Website (my entry) http://travel.nationalgeographic.com/travel/traveler-magazine/photo-contest/2014/entries/251439/view/

And like, comment, share my picture. It will be much appreciated!

Rhossili Bay – Wales

I’ve seen beautiful places in UK but this one here is simply breathtaking! Especially on a sunny and warm day.

From Swansea it is just one hour by bus. If you have a car, well, much better than the bus and much easier to get there as well as comfortable!

There are also a couple of pubs over there where you can have lunch or dinner or just a beer with a view! Beware it’s always packed so try to get there in non lunch/dinner hours!

 

Top tips!

  • comfortable shoes (not slippers, it is quite rocky over there)
  • a parka in case it starts raining. No umbrella as it is too windy for one (usually)
  • bottle of water and snacks for when walking until you get a table at the pubs.
  • a blanket in order to sit on the grass and enjoy the view on top of he cliffs.
  • of course, DO NOT forget the camera! The views are amazing and you are going to regret not taking it with you.
