Western Europe (10)

At first, Cancale in France's Brittany wasn’t on my list of places to visit. I was planning to visit Dinan and St Malo. However, while I was doing my research on where to eat and what food shouldn’t be missed, Cancale came up and it wasn’t that far from St Malo. Then I realized it’s the town known for oysters. I’m not a big fan of oysters, however those who traveled with me are. Honestly it’s not easy to find good and clean oysters at a decent price in where I live, so I figured we shouldn’t miss this place… KEEP READING

Somewhere quiet, somewhere pretty but still has a reason for me to visit. As I found myself in Groningen (Holland) one year, I decided to make a day trip to a town up north called Pieterburen for the Zeehondencreche Lenie’t Hart. In short, it’s a town with a seal rehab. It all started when a lady began to rescue injured seals as a personal thing. Now it turned into a… KEEP READING
We were driving out of the Loire Valley and heading towards the Normandy coast. However before we got to the seafood heaven, we had one more chateau stop to make : The Chateau de Villandry. The first time I heard of this place was on a TV show (Around the World in 80 Gardens), and they called it “The Garden of France”. Still owned by the Carvallo family who purchased the property in 1906, Villandry is known for it massive garden instead of the chateau itself. Walked up to the boulevard on the side of the garden, you got this… KEEP READING

The fashion world is used to the street trend exposure of international cities such as New York, London, and Paris, but one budding hub that seems to often be overlooked is the unique fashion trends of Berlin.

While Berlin is one of Europe’s largest cities, it is still a relatively… KEEP READING
