Blog award

Between the palms and the seashells I found a message saying that I got nominated for the Liebster Award! I only started this blog a few months ago and I am overwhelmed by all the love I have been given! You guys keep me inspired and I love sharing all my experiences and travels with all of you!


I would like to give a special thanks to the lovely Paula (typewritergirl) for the nomination! And I have taken the time to answer her questions!

What is your favourite part of blogging ?

Do I have to choose? Writing, travelling, discovering, connecting, the lovely people..can I go on?

What country, city or continent would you most like to visit and why?

Japan! Its a whole different culture that I dearly respect.

What was the most inspirational time in your life so far ?

The moment I got on the road in a little camper van in Iceland with nothing but my camera and no signal or sign of life. Just nature and I.

What are you passionate about ?

Travelling of course! Discovering every single beautiful place on this earth!

What is your favourite time of year?

Christmas in the mountains surrounded by snow and loved ones! Warm jumpers and hot coco next to the open fire is my happy place!

What are other interests you have besides blogging?

Healthy living, yoga, bouldering, photography and journalism!

Do you prefer the beach or the mountains?

It wouldn’t be fair to choose, I love both equally!

Where did you go for your most memorable vacation? 

Iceland! 100%!

Do you prefer a sunny or a rainy day?

Sunny days make me happy, but a rainy days cuddled up in a jumper with a coffee in one hand and a book in the other is also a treat!

If you had a day all to yourself, how would you spend it?

I would find the closest bar and grab a good cup of coffee before starting anything! Then take out my camera and go on an adventure! Get lost and come back with a story!

I would like to nominate thewanderingcoreofteaandenglandwildspinoftheworldtheblogoftravelfeedingyourbeautysmellthecoffeewebdebs-world and Caitlinjeanrussell. Answer the same questions I did and share the love!



Cutest beach in Como, Italy (that no one knows about)


Another morning, another coffee, another hot day in Lugano! It is the perfect day to have a drive around the lake and go explore every beautiful spot. A spot that you should definitely visit is Lido di Faggeto. As you drive down a narrow road you notice a small parking space. This is where you find the cutest beach! You have parked your car and as you walk down you can feel the sand tickling below your feet.

At this great sunbathing spot they have comfortable couches in which you can fall into and drink your delicious espresso. As you hide underneath the parasol you can quickly change into your swimsuit so you can run over the hot sand and dive into the refreshing blue water.



It is the most beautiful spot with the most amazing view. (Even when you notice some clouds climbing over the hills slowly covering the sun, in my opinion the view just gets more and more amazing.) You see the rain coming in the distance, the clouds surrounding the hills. Far away you see that lightning hits the water – thats probably the moment when you realise to stop dreaming and get out of the water. You can already feel the drops and so you go back to hiding underneath the parasol. A tropical rain storm is about to take over, and its beautiful.



This place is the perfect place for both sunny and rainy days. Lovely food, lovely people, and an amazing view!

Where to go

Lido di Faggeto is open everyday from 10am – 10pm and their address is Piazza Cesare Scotti 1, Riva CO.
