Located in the Lautentian Mountains of Quebec, the village of Mont-Tremblant is practically a winter wonderland. With fresh snow covering the European style buildings and cobblestone streets, almost everyday for at least three months of the year, it’s pretty much a scene out of a fairytale. The city is home to two main urban centres, one within its world famous ski resort and another in the neighbourhood of Saint-Jovite. During my trip to Montreal over winter break, my parents and I went on a quick half a day trip up to Mont-Tremblant. In this post I’ll be writing about my short time there!
The capital of its country, one of the most historic, advanced, and well known countries in the world, Berlin is a very important city. There’s tons to see throughout Berlin, from the beautiful Brandenburg Gate to marvellous Museum Island, making it a very popular tourist destination. Berlin is the perfect home base for travellers looking to explore the rest of its country, with many huge metropolises and hidden gems of towns located around the city. So in this post, I’ll be going back to my Berlin series – specifically writing about three of the best day trip destinations from the city, including cultural Dresden, growing Leipzig, and humble Dessau!
Vienna, the capital of Austria, is one of the most visited cities in Europe (for obvious reasons!). Often considered the continent’s culture capital, is famous for its romance, music, art, architecture, and more. This beautiful city is located in Eastern Austria, on the Danube River and near the country’s borders with the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Many charming towns, villages, and cities surround the capital, many of them discoverable through day trips from Vienna. In this post, I’ll be writing about three of the most popular day trips destinations from Vienna: Bratislava, Hallstatt, and Salzburg. All three of these cities are under three hours away from Vienna, the perfect distance for a perfect day trip!
Munich, the capital of Bavaria, is a German metropolis set in the middle of southern Germany. From its centuries old Marienplatz to its traditionally Bavarian Hofbräuhaus, it is a dream city for many travellers. Munich is also a great home base for travellers wanting to explore its surroundings, as there are many great places to visit on day trips from Munich. In this post, I’ll be sharing three of the best places (in my opinion) to visit on day trips from Munich. These places include a fairytale castle, a former concentration camp, and enchanting Austrian city.
Known as the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, Florence, or Firenze in Italian, is one of the most popular destinations in Italy. It is also the capital of Tuscany, one of Italy’s most visited regions known for its beautiful landscapes, expansive history, impressive art, and of course its world renowned vineyards that produce some of the world’s best wine. Florence is the perfect city to serve as a base for your explorations throughout Tuscany, as many of the region’s best spots are within day trip distance from the capital. In this post I will be writing about four cities throughout Tuscany that I visited on day trips from Florence, and that I suggest you visit as well!
