Well I don’t do it often but last May it all added up for a week escape to sunny Spain. We chose the direct flight with Ryanair from Trieste to Valencia and decided to drive along the South East coast towards Benidorm. It turned out that a road trip from Valencia to Costa Blanca is a perfect getaway for everyone in search of endless sandy beaches, tasteful cuisine, liveable night life and impressive historic monuments. Located at the Mediterranean Sea, Valencia and Benidorm are popular destinations for tourists of all ages. With a pleasant climate tourism […]

Antigua – dežela morja in sonca

Karibe sem prvič obiskala leta 2002. Bilo je za božič, bilo je za mojo prvo plačo (no, vsaj prvi obrok sem pokrila z njo) in bila je ljubezen na prvi pogled. Dominikanska republika.
