A tour around the island of Corfu.
Corfu, with its capital Kerkyra, is a true gem in the Ionian Sea. The Corfiots are proud people with an intense love for their island; they are friendly and full of temperament. The pace on the island seems adjusted to a level where there’s no room for stress. As Kostas would say, “Siga siga”.”
“Siga siga” in Greek can be translated as “slowly slowly” or “take it easy”, emphasizing a relaxed attitude
NYHAVN in Copenhagen
For years, the Danes have been known to score high on lists measuring happiness. This centrally located country, which serves as the gateway to other Scandinavian nations, simply does very well. Danes trust people and are not skeptical. They have a mentality of avoiding conflict and discussions, which results in a good state of mind. While it’s quite an expensive country for a holiday or city trip, it’s definitely worth it.
Europe’s Hawaii: the Azores.
The Azores is an archipelago of nine islands located in the Atlantic Ocean, approximately 1500 kilometers west of mainland Portugal. It is an unspoiled paradise with volcanic landscapes, crystal clear water, lush green forests, and beautiful waterfalls. The Azores is also an ideal place to spot whales and dolphins and to enjoy delicious local dishes such as fresh fish and cheese.

The largest island of the Dodecanese with a rich history. There is so much beauty to discover on Rhodes. Ottoman influences and Italian influences are unmistakable on this island.
San Gimignano in Toscane
San Gimignano is a medieval walled town that attracts many tourists every year to experience the Italian atmosphere. The town is located in the province of Siena in Tuscany. San Gimignano retains its medieval character and boasts 14 towers that rise far above the city.
The towers were built between the 12th and 14th centuries by wealthy families as a display of wealth, but they also served as defensive towers during the conflicts between these families. At its peak, this city had 72 towers.
Ever wanted to visit a hidden gem? That's what Flores in the Azores felt like for me. My trip began with a flight from the Netherlands to Porto in Portugal. But here's a cool travel tip: if you fly to Porto first, SATA airlines will give you a free ticket to the...
