Italien: Sommerferien in der Toskana

Unsere Reise begann in Südtirol und setzte sich über Verona, Lucca, Cinque Terre, den weißen Strand bei Vada, ins traumhafte Chalet Borgo Pignano bei San Gimigiano und schließlich nach Bologna fort.

Valencia, spectacular and always underrated

Valencia, as it turns out, is a wonderful underrated city in Spain that is absolutely worth visiting for a short weekend trip from Berlin (and definitely a more affordable experience than other Spanish beach cities).
