Continuing on from Trapani, we made our way down to Sciacca, a fishing port perfect for our pit stop for a refreshing taste of gelato before we explore the rest of the south coast of Sicily. Read on to see what other gems we visited in Sicily!

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. We started our first Sicilian adventure in Palermo, the capital of Sicily with its plentiful history and to this day the streets have remained largely untouched through the years with plenty of Arabic influence through the city. Read on to find out where we went for part 1 (of 4!) in Sicily!
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.

Lake Bled had always been one of our top places to go visit for the longest time and so we were so glad when everything aligned for us to go and visit Slovenia. Slovenia has probably been long one of the unassuming European countries to visit - it does border the more famous Italy, Austria and Croatia however don't underestimate what Slovenia has to offer - I'd say it's a real gem until everyone else stumbles upon it!
Lisbon, the sunny capital of Portugal was one of our first summer long weekend city breaks in Europe and remains one of our favourites. There's plenty of sun, culture, food & sightseeing to keep any groups of people busy in this charming city. Read on to see what else we got up to!
We start off part 2 of Cinque Terre back in Vernazza, with views from the Castello Doria. Although it might be a slightly unconventional view (the typical postcard view seen from the walking trail from Monterosso), it's still quite a sight to see all the pastel houses & roofs from up close!

When one thinks of Italy they often think of national treasures such as pizza, pasta and also may also think of the Leaning Tower of Pisa (amongst other national landmarks including the Colosseum, the Sistine chapel etc!). However after you see the leaning tower there isn't quite a whole load to do in Pisa afterwards but an easy hour train ride away will take you to the stunningly picturesque towns of Cinque Terre (5 towns) and in our opinion something you can't miss if you're in that region!
