Sicily, the biggest island in the Mediterranean just south of Italy had been on our list to visit for a while with its vast amount of things you can do, see & eat.

Gorgeous Florence, rich in culture and history was every bit as lovely as we imagined.

Innsbruck, also known as the Capital of the Alps was a quick 24 hour stop in this beautifully charming town after we spent a week at the slopes in Mayrhofen (just an hour drive away). It's known as the capital of the alps and home to many winter sports as there are slopes right by the city and I dare say it was the perfect town to be strolling around this town after a fun packed week.

When I think of Penang I think of sticky childhood holidays, hanging with the grandma and extended family however the most distinct ones are the food memories - all the rich and delectable flavours that were just so exciting to eat in each bite.

We started the second half of our Santorini holiday at walking down to Ammoudi Bay. I must say it seemed like an endless set of stairs down toward the bay from the top of Oia! Just at the top of the the island off Oia, it's something that may be easily missed as you're exploring the magic of Oia, but it's always nice to get away from the famous cliffs of Santorini & get closer to the sea.
