Flora and Fauna in Utrecht Botanical Gardens

The botanical gardens in Utrecht have been on my list for a bit now. I can’t believe I never went there before, not even when I lived in the city. But, once again, we were looking for things to do in our own country and since we wanted to visit Utrecht again, we decided to […]

A Sunny walk towards Piazzale Michelangelo

Our first day in Florence had been lovely. We had seen the Duomo, the Ponte Vecchio and Il Porcelino. For our second day, we had bought afternoon tickets for the Uffizi, for it would be too hot in the city to be outside. For the morning, we decided to cross the Arno and walk towards […]
