Winter in Europe – Outfit Planning

featured 2

This is our third travel fashion advice installment for those travelling in Europe, now in the winter season, which is upon us!

Are you touring Christmas Markets, drinking hot wine and counting down to the new year? Or maybe you’re skipping the craze of the Christmas holiday travelling and going in January-February, one of the coldest months of the year. Either way, we’ve travelled quite a bit in the winter, and we are doing it again this year! We’ve made mistakes and learned from them and now are sharing those fashion tips and outfit suggestions with you!

I love winter, but I HATE feeling cold. It’s uncomfortable, unpleasant, and usually leads to colds and sinus problems. So, if you’re like me, you love keeping warm and toasty as much as possible. But if you’re very much like me, you also want to manage to look stylish and cute in your travel photos. Let’s figure out how to do both, because the beauty of winter in Europe is that you don’t have to choose between stylish and warm!

So grab a hot cup of cocoa, a warm blanket, and stay tuned for wardrobe ideas AND a brand new packing travel list that is perfect for this winter season that you can download for FREE!

Quick Guide to Lisbon

I may not have ever told you this, but Portugal was almost our honeymoon destination besides Paris. Even though we changed our mind and did Belgium instead, Portugal had been on our list of quite some time, and it was exciting to finally go there!

Lisbon is the bustling, charming capital of Portugal. It is a coastal city with all kinds of amazing sites and beautiful scenes to witness, and probably an ideal place to begin exploring the country of Portugal. If you haven’t already, take a look at the photo essay we did, which visually captures a taste of the wonderful character of this city.

We loved this city, though we had little time there, and we hope to go back one day to explore more of it! Let us give you a quick breakdown of what to see, do and try in Lisbon.

3 Little Museums in Paris

Rodin museum

History, arts and culture – you can find ample exposure to all of these in the capital city of France.

I have always enjoyed history, from a young age I loved the prehistoric era, ancient Greece, and Medieval times. I also love art, as it is my long-life hobby. I guess it is no wonder that Art museums are my favourite kind of museums to visit, along with science museums because of their interactive displays!

We all know the Louvre, home to thousands of art pieces of huge fame. The “Mona Lisa” is the main attraction, and is usually jam-packed with tourists taking dozens of ridiculous photos, holding up their babies and attempting selfies.

Forget the Louvre, at least for today. I have three lovely little museums that will thrill any art or art history lover and appreciator.

Summer in Europe – Outfit Packing

_DSC2909

It feels like half of the world is travelling during the summer and Europe is one of the top most popular destinations. Personally, I think summer is not the most ideal time to travel, but I’m a teacher…so I have little options! While summer means everywhere will be super busy and pricier, it is a great time to enjoy the sun, the heat, and feed off the buzz! Because let’s face it, Europe can be surprisingly cold up until mid-May! When summer hits, you can finally ditch the three extra layers and work on your tan!

What makes picking and packing outfits for Europe so nice is that no matter how many countries you are visiting, in general the whole continent has similar weather and temperature averages, but double check the forecast just in case. Here are some ideas and key things to keep in mind as you pack up for a trip in the Summer.

Tale of Two Islands – Santorini

Greece was nothing like how I always imagined, but it is absolutely wonderful, and has become my husband’s top favourite country so far! The islands of Greece are a rugged type of beauty, full of rocky cliffs, breath-taking sights, and winding roads. The people are friendly, the food is delicious, and the lifestyle on the islands is different than anything I have yet experienced.

Santorini vs. Mykonos:

We went to both Santorini and Mykonos, and I will state right off the bat that there is no way to compare these two islands. They are both very different in their vibes, culture,  and lifestyle; even the way the islands are geologically shaped affects their character. This is a two-part blog series that will focus on each island individually, and today we begin with our first stop: Santorini.

48 hours in Berlin – An Itinerary

Today I tell you about our last stop in Germany, the capital city, and how we spent our precious 48 hours in Berlin.

Between Munich and Berlin, we spent time with family and friends for Christmas in a small town about an hour away from Cologne. It was very relaxing and by far our laziest days of the trip!

One of our most active days, however, was our first day in Berlin. We arrived in Berlin late at night, which meant that we would wake up with two full days to explore the city.
