This small island country located south from Italy has become a really popular destination recently. I’ve been thinking of going to Malta for a long time, just the timing never is good for me… I’m dreaming of wandering the old town of the capital – Valletta (listed on UNESCO World’s Heritage List), getting lost in backstreets of Mdina, being amazed by the wonderful nature and finally relaxing at the beautiful, sandy beach for a day or two!
Even if Tenerife is mostly know as a typical beach holidays destination (no wonder – with lots of Tenerife flight deals it’s easily accessible) the largest of the Canary Islands has so much more to offer than just leisure.The landscape is extremely varied there – from desert to breathtaking coastline, from lush forest with exotic fauna and flora to mountains and even a volcano! I’m sure a week or so in Tenerife would be a well spent time!
This archipelago is a really interesting and quirky place yet not many people know about it. Technically it’s part of Finland but in practice it’s a semi independent region with their own government, post or internet domain (.ax). The archipelago consists of over 6700 islands (!) but only 60 are inhabited. Back in the times when I used to live in Finland I took a ferry from Helsinki to Stockholm – it stopped in Mariehamn (the capital) but I didn’t get to visit Aland Islands then. I still remember how beautiful and idyllic the place was, with rocky shore, colorful wooden houses and wavy horizon
Scotland is one of the places I’d love to return to (I was there only once, only for few days and the weather was just terrible). And when I eventually go back there Isle of Skye is a must! Every single picture I see of the island leaves me speechless. Rough, moon-alike landscape, fairy-tale castles or small harbours make this place looks like unreal.
Over 10 years ago I almost went to Sicily. Just after finishing high school I was travelling solo in Europe, was waiting in Rome for a night train to take me back close to the border to Austria and suddenly at the same platform a train to Palermo arrived. I was really tempted to board it and was this close to doing so – up until today I regret the sane part of me won in this internal discussion. And so ever since Sicily is a dream destination for me and all the pictures with unbelievably turquoise water, incredible nature, breathtaking landscape and narrow-cobbled streets in old towns don’t really help my wanderlust.
I must admit I’ve never been really interested in visiting Greece. I’ve heard people were raving about the country so many times yet it didn’t change my mind. Finally at the beginning of this year I went to Athens and Meteora and I loved it much more than I’ve ever expected! This short trip made me want to explore more sights of Greece and the islands are on the very top of my wishlist. I’d love to experience a slow life in the adorable little seaside town, spending my days eating too much delicious Greek food, sitting at the beach with a book in my hand or hiking around the island. I just cannot decide which of the over 1000 islands would be the best for that!
