A trip to M A L A G A

This year in April I took a little break and travelled to Malaga in Andalusia, Spain. While writing this post I am dreaming back to this little vacay. I traveled from Amsterdam Airport so it was just a 3 to 3,5 hour flight, which is perfect for me since I’m not enjoying plane rides. As I arrived in Malaga the palm trees and delightful sun were bringing my mood up to the max. I recommend Malaga to everyone, especially to the ones who live in Europe because it’s a short trip and not expensive. You can easily go to Malaga for a long weekend or mid week if you want to go to a place for relaxing and also want to do a couple of things – but not too much. 🙂

 

The Harbor

The most beautiful place I saw in Malaga was this harbor. This is a place where you must go when you pay Malaga a visit. Unlike the harbor we have in my hometown – this is a harbor is a place when you can come into full relaxation. This is a perfect place to sit down or make a long walk, if you love long walks like I do. Besides the palm trees, the beautiful blue sea and yachts, there are a couple of boutiques and stores and many restaurants, from all kitchens to chose. Scroll down to see which one was my favorite. 🙂

 

Centre Pompidou

Just like in France, Malaga has it’s own Centre Pompidou.
I did not see the inside of it, but I’m sure the outside is as much interesting as what’s going on inside.

This architecture is also to be found on the boulevard.


Picasso Museum

I am a fan of musea, but the Picasso museum was one of my least favorites.
You really have to love and appreciate the art of Picasso I think. Otherwise you would just think he was crazy kinda man..
This garden was the most beautiful part of the museum.


Shopping

There is no v a c a y whitout s h o p p i n g ofcourse.

This shopping street – Calle Marques de Larios – is where you can find all famous stores and if you’re not in the mood for shopping, a long stroll makes it as good as well.
(You can find here the shops as Kiko, Zara, Mango and Victoria’s Secret).
Plus this shopping street is only 10 minutes away from the harbor and the beach!


 

Teatro Romano

The Roman theater is discovered in the 50’s by digging and renovation and probably build in the time of emperor August.
While looking at if from the outside, it looks so impressive. In some way it looks like kind of simular to the Colosseum.
Sometimes there are still performances and expositions.
This is also a MUST see!


F.O.O.D.

On this picture you see the most delicious strawberry pancakes I ever ate. I mean like, really. I’m nut fund of pancakes combined with fruit, but I am since I tasted this one.
You might think this is all jibber jabber, but it’s not.
When you’re in Malaga, visit Julia’s Bakery for breakfast or lunch.
I promise you won’t regret.

 

But the top off food I had in Malaga was on the boulevard of the harbor.
Ofcourse, Indians always find Indians, so I had my delicious meal at an Indian restaurant.
I started eating immediately when the food was served so… no pictures were made…
But.. I can tell you that the name of this restaurant is Buddha Brasserie and they are located at the end of the boulevard. You can also find them of Facebook. If you’re into Indian food and you’re in Malaga, you should really have dinner there!

 

I am really going back to Malaga one day, since I have enjoyed it so much there.
I am already looking forward to it!

Love,
Nandini

Spring in Rome

Last month I was on holiday in the beautiful historical Rome.
This trip was only a three day trip and I had planned everything I wanted to see in just these 3 days. I went from the Colosseum to the Chanel store and ate a lo-hot of pasta to gelato. I had a great time over here. Italians are very polite and of course the beautiful weather was helping a lot.

Spring just started and I was thinking and overthinking about what to wear and to bring with me. Which shoes? Which tops? Dresses? I didn’t know, it was so much to think about. At the end I choose comfort. So no heels and no short skirts. Scroll further to see my outfits and some of the sights I’ve been seeing.

On the first day I saw the Trevi Fountain. I never thought this statue/building was this huge. Of course it was very crowded and like all the other tourists – I made my wish. 🙂  

Outfit details:
Primark boots x Zara jeans x H&M blouse x H&M pullover x Michael Kors bucket bag x
RayBan Erika shades x Cluse rose gold watch

Colosseum

I found it admiring to see how something as big as the Colosseum was build in the earlier years without all the technical equipments we use nowadays. Historical monuments like this are beyond words and of course there were not happy things happening in this arena but still.. When I was walking around in the Colosseum I was imagining how things went back then. 
A tip when visiting the Colosseum: buy a ticket online or at a local travel agency to skip the lines. The Colosseum is very populair and it’s a waste of your time to stand in line for like an hour. You could also have look at the ROMA pass.

The most beautiful place I have visited in Rome is without a doubt the Vatican City.

The same for the Vatican City – before you arrive make sure you’ve purchased your tickets, also for the Sixtine Chapelle which is definitely worth seeing! Put on your comfortable shoes as this is going to be a long walk and very crowded. 

If Rome has not been checked off your bucket list yet.. you should definitely go!  😉

From Paris with Love

When I am in Paris there are always many things to do and see. I never get bored here.
I was only here for a weekend, but I got to see a lot of beautiful places. 

Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower described in two words; A beautiful and magical place. It is a very special place to go with your beloved one, although it is very crowded, you still get caught up in the moment. This really is a must see in Paris.

Champs Elysees

The biggest street in Paris to shop, have delicious food and drinks and watch street entertainment. Or of course, just to have a walk and enjoy the beautiful view of this authentic street.

 Pont Neuf

Pont neuf is between the Louvre museum and Cathedral Notre Dame. You can also find the love locks bridge in this area, but most of the locks are removed. Also around this pont you can find a lot of restaurants and bars and it is a beautiful place to take pictures.

Citytrip: Nice and Monaco

Last month I went to the beautiful French Cote D’azur, Nice and Monaco. I have seen so many beautiful things and places in Nice. My trip lasted for three days, which is actually enough to spend for a citytrip. Let me take you into my journey.

My hotel was at the Boulevard Promenade des Anglais, which is most likely in the centre of Nice. There are plenty of restaurants and it is a walking distance to the beautiful blue sea. At the moment I stayed in Nice it was too cold for me to swim, but I did enjoy the view.

As we walked from the hotel to the centre of Nice we walked through these beautiful streets which were build with these old and classic houses and big trees. Just like the fancy streets from Paris. When we walked like ten minutes, we walked into in the centre where all these terraces, shops and monuments were. Also the Cathedral Notre Dame of Nice.

The second day of my trip I went to Monaco. If you take the train from Nice it only takes 20 minutes to Monaco. So if you’re ever in Nice I really recommend you to travel to Monaco! It’s really worth it. When I walked outside from the station and looked down, was this the first thing I saw. An amazing view to the Port of Monaco.

Walking to the centre/port of Monaco seemed more nearby when I looked down from the station haha. But you know, it is worth the walk!

Big streets. Artistic buildings.

And then finally, I saw what i came for. Casino Monte Carlo. Hotel de Paris and many many of fancy cars. The place was crowded! The casino looks as even beautiful on the inside as the outside, but I was not allowed to make pictures inside the building. So if you’re curious, go see for yourselves!

It was the perfect weekend in Nice and Monaco. A great place to explore, beautiful views, shops and monument.  A definitely must-see!
