Bulgaria: Itinerary For a 5-Day Road Trip

Bulgaria, along with Romania, is one of the most surprising countries I’ve ever visited. I got the opportunity to travel to both countries on a road trip during last Easter break. The trip, that had a length of 10 days, allowed me to discover these countries in a way that I could have never imagined. The cuisine, the history and the society of Bulgaria, where I spent 5 of my 10 days, impressed me a lot. I liked everything about it and that’s why I can’t do anything else but recommend you to go.

Plus, despite the Balkans region is more and more explored every day, Bulgaria is still quite unknown for most of the travelers. My reasons to convince you to go? It is a safe destination, affordable and full of interesting places.

Mushing in Lapland: Everything You Need To Know

Earlier this year, during my trip to Lapland, I got the opportunity to experience mushing in the Arctic. It was, by far, one of the most magical experiences of my life. A moment of pure connection with nature surrounded by breathtaking scenery: the Arctic forest.

Mushing, that used to play an important role in the life of Arctic inhabitants, has been slowly substituted by snow motorbikes. For the locals, mushing has become more of a sport than a way to move. For the tourists (like me), it has turned into an unmissable activity to discover this freezing region.

Rome (Italy): TOP 5 Alternative Spots

Until nowadays, I have been able to visit the city of Rome on three occasions. I have never got tired of it. I would visit it again and again… This city has always something new to discover and that is its magic. Because of this on today’s post, I want to show you 5 spots that I love and are (yet) not that touristy! Let’s get into it!

1) National Monument to Vittorio Emanuele II

Since I have a weird passion for white-marble buildings and monuments, it was a bit inevitable that I loved this monument. And now you would think… what does this building have of an unknown if it’s one of the most visited monuments in Rome? Well, my answer is THE 360º PANORAMIC ROOFTOP IT HIDES AT THE TOP!

The price to get to the rooftop is 7€ for the adults and 3,50€ for people under 18 years. It is a quite accessible price for everyone,  Especially if you consider the ticket price of the rest of the tourist attractions.

MY RECOMMENDATION WHEN VISITING: If you travel to Rome during winter time, when I visited this rooftop for the 1st time, take advantage of the rooftop opening hours and contemplate the sunset while enjoying one of the best views of the city. 

Lapland (Finland): Itinerary For A 4-Day Roadtrip

Lapland is at the TOP of my favorite destinations in the world since I visited it at the beginning of the year. If you visit it, you will for sure experience one of the biggest contrasts you can possibly get in Europe. Not because of the cold but mostly because of its’ breathtaking landscapes. It is, really honestly speaking, a unique experience.

It’s true that Lapland is mostly visited during Chrismas holidays. Many travelers arrive in Rovaniemi, the capital of Lapland, to visit Santa Claus in his official residence. Despite this fact, I highly recommend you to visit it outside the Christmas holidays period. You can go in January or February and with 4 or 5 days you will have enough. The sun will shine and you will be able to do the same activities but prices will be lower. Plus, January and February are usually the best months to spot the Northern Lights.
