England is a particularly rich country when it comes to history and traditions. There are old mansions and ruins scattered all through the country, surrounded very often by beautiful nature and accompanied by lovely gardens. Especially nice is South England, which consists of an interesting and sometimes even weird looking coast lines. Get yourself a nice cup of tea, find a place with a great view and enjoy yourself!
Wandering through the many labyrinth-like streets of Rome is like walking through history itself. At every corner there is a church or monument with significance. But what makes Rome are the people and their culture. The Romans are enjoying themselves and their lifestyle, which consists of spending time with friends and having a good wine and dinner. Don’t dare to leave Rome without having tried some of the local cuisine! And there is more than just Pizza (although it is delicious over here to be fair).
Rome is also called the eternal city, as it is withstanding any winds of change for 28 centuries already and is supposed to exist until the end of civilization. Sometimes the city can feel heavy in history and weight though, like the monumental statues decorating it. It can be busy too – especially during tourist season. But there are always places and moments to let it all in and feel the romance and melancholy of Rome.

Český Krumlov in Southern Bohemia, Czechia, is one of this little places in Europe that looks like it was taken directly from a fantasy film or role playing game and unfolded upon the landscape. Situated alongside the Vltava river below an impressive castle complex it seems especially unreal in it’s beauty on sunny days with clear skies. If Krumlov would be situated somewhere else in the world it surely would be a top attraction, in central Europe though it is not even well known, although there are plenty tourists from Asia and other parts of the world. The place has many great little shops with local craft work and delicious restaurants with regional food. If you are in the region don’t miss Krumlov!
