White out.

I have fallen head over heels in love with this Samantha Wills set of jewellery! Especially now as I am getting a tan over here in Europe (I am in Berlin as I am posting this and it is so ridiculously hot!) everything white looks that much better.

Beauty note: I always encourage to be sun smart. I have been wearing spf 50 every day here on my face, arms and back.

One of my favourite places on Earth. This was my second visit to Neuschwanstein in Bavaria. It looked even better this time around in the sunshine, although it was super hot and made it harder to walk around (especially because I made the mistake of wearing Jelly Bean Sandals!), but nothing would stop me from exploring this special place. 

We didn't do the tour inside Neuschwanstein this visit, it is still pretty fresh in my mind and although we would have liked to, there was only a super late tour. Instead we went through Hohenschwangau Castle, which I am so glad about because it is amazing. It was the family retreat for Maximilian II and his wife Marie, it is no where near as big as Neuschwanstein, but still charming. Their son, Ludwig II became king and built his dream castle Neuschwanstein and sadly the castle was never completed. I believe it would have been the most amazing castle/palace ever made. It is unlike any other, a true piece of art! Often called The Fairytale Castle because of how unique it is and also as it inspired Walt Disney.

After walking out of the gardens at Hohenschwangau we had to come through the forest to get back to the village. Most of these photos were taken on this walk, when we came to the bottom there was the most beautiful coloured lake I have ever seen.

If you go to Europe or Germany you HAVE to visit Bavaria, Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau! We have stayed in Munich both times and done day trips using the train although I would recommend staying close to the castle so you can spend two days doing tours of both castles, hiking through the forest, swimming in the lake (if you visit in summer, of course!) and taking it all in.

Valley of Butterflies.

Located on the island Rhodes, about half an hour away from the town is The Petaloudes Valley, home to the Jersey Tiger Moth. We only saw a handful flying around as it is their resting period and when not in flight they are camouflaged with the trees. The land was so lush and the sun shone through the treetops causing shadows and little rays of light. You can't make much noise in case you disturb the resting moths, making it as serene as it looks until you see a little yellow or orange flutter and your heart skips a beat because you've spotted one. I can only imagine how whimsical it would be when they are all fluttering around.

Ola da Grecia!

 Hello, from Greece!

This is what it's all about here, sunshine and frappes!

Greece is one of those crazy places where anything goes, hence why I'm wearing a Brazilian Flag swimsuit on a boarded up balcony and I don't even care. 

We've been in Rhodes for 24 hours and as soon as we got here, it felt like home. We've already had four Greek salads, four mousssakas and six frappes between us.

Turkey has been an interesting experience with ups and downs, but Pamukkale was everything I imagined it to be. I gawked over photos like these for months, now I am looking at them in awe because I took them. Mind blown!

If you want to go to Pamukkale (which I recommend you do) don't stay in the town. Stay in Bodrum, you can come in by bus and spend the day walking up the travertines, bathing in the pools and then exploring the ruins and gardens at the top. 

Some more advice, wear a big hat and lots of sunscreen. I did neither and am now sporting a horrendous T shirt tan!

Not long after Nicole and I arrived in Istanbul we headed to Bebek to try out a place called Mangerie for brunch. It's a very white, bright and classy cafe on a rooftop overlooking the water. The photos pretty much speak for themselves and if you ever come here I highly recommend visiting. We went twice!
