Next trip: Vienna

2019 started and for me, it is a new year of travels. Now I am organizing my next trip: Vienna. The capital of Austria is already on my agenda with some work meetings. It is not my first time there. I have already been there and I hope to find a bit of time to see what is missing on my list. My love for Vienna is really big, because of its elegance, the huge variety of attractions and classical music.

Each step in the city is a jump into the history. If you have already read other posts, you know it. I have a big passion for history, I like to study it and learn more about the history of the places. So I am really glad about my next trip: Vienna is the right place for me. Since I have been there I know what to do and where to go in my free time. But in the past, I didn’t have much time to explore the city bars and restaurants.

Next trip: Vienna. Did you visit it?

I will spend in the capital of Austria only a few days, but I want to try to find time for a couple of museums. Also, I would like to eat in some special place and maybe go out to explore the city in the night or at least late evening. Have you ever been to Vienna? Do you have some advice for me? I am asking about your experience. Since I established my next trip: Vienna.

When I visited Malmö some of you gave me great suggests, maybe you can do the same this time. I will appreciate it a lot. This travel blog shares my experiences, but the best part is obviously sharing. So we can exchange information and opinion about the places we visit. What do you think? Can you help me for my next trip: Vienna? I wait for your comments.

Happy 2019 from Prague

My dears, how did you start the New Year? I want to wish again Happy 2019! From Prague. I am really happy to be here, but I am a bit tired. Maybe many of you can understand me. When you are abroad for the New Year’s Eve you don’t go to sleep early and you enjoy the party…or maybe more than one. I am not able now to tell you all what I want about the city so some other posts will follow this one these days. I will write about the place and the accommodation.

With this article, I want to refresh my wishes for a happy 2019 and to show you a few pictures of fireworks. The cruise on the river was fabulous and also the walk in the city to go to the concert in the main square and in the clubs. I saw Prague in the summertime, but now during the new year celebration is completely different. It is funny and there are a lot of people of all ages coming from all over the world.

Happy 2019: fireworks and more

There are magnificent buildings very well enlighted and during the winter holidays, the lights have different colors. Then the atmosphere is unique, very well combined between the tradition and the international soul that comes from visitors. The river looks like a magic touch. Yes, because of the water that reflects the lights, the buildings, and the fireworks. It was a good start to have a happy 2019!

I love fireworks, but I can say that in Prague they did an amazing job. The show was really beautiful. This brief break with my friends was really a great idea, maybe because it wasn’t mine… 😮 I have a lot of new energy for the new year. Also for the blog, so I want to put more strength to work online to improve my posts and to give you new cool articles.

My dears, watch this very short video and stay tuned for other news from Prague. Happy 2019!

Fireworks in Prague. Happy 2019!

Sunset

I am with my friends, trying to finish our plan to go to Prague and a beautiful sunset is over us. The sky has beautiful colors and I want to share my view with you. Unfortunately, I don’t have good instruments to take the pictures, then I also do it without opening the window. I am sorry for the low quality, but I hope you can see something.

I need to post them because this type of sunsets is not so common. Even if Piedmont offers lovely skies, this sunset is really superb. There is a good combination among the mountains, the clouds, the sun, and the sky. The sun during the day today wasn’t that much, but at least nature gave us a beautiful end. What makes me sad in winter is the early sunset, because there is not much light, compared to summer. Anyway to see this is a reason to be happy with life.

My sunset

My old tablet is not able to catch the best pictures with a few lights and during the night. A window was in the middle between me and the sunset. I needed to be fast in taking the pictures. I tried to do my best. To see the sunset how it was tonight here, you can add a bit of imagination to my images. Before to let you see the pictures, I want to add a brief nice quote about the sunset.

“And yet day and night meet fleetingly at twilight and dawn,” he said, lowering his voice again and narrowing his eyes and moving his head a quarter of an inch closer to hers. “And their merging sometimes affords the beholder the most enchanted moments of all the twenty four hours. A sunrise or sunset can be ablaze with brilliance and arouse all the passion, all the yearning, in the soul of the beholder.”

New Year’s Eve destination

My dears, with my friends we finally decided the New Year’s Eve destination. After discussions and researches online, we came up with a common idea about the place. There are a lot of cool proposals around Europe, but we can’t obviously to join all of them. So, what to do? We agreed on the place. The reasons are different so I won’t list them here.

Now your question is becoming bigger: what is your New Year’s Eve destination? Well, I have to answer… We will go to Prague. I have already been there, but I am happy to go back to that superb city. Also, I was there for some work meetings and I didn’t have so much time to visit the attractions, neither to enjoy the city entertainment. What we will see during the party night?

The New Year’s Eve in Prague

Prague, in the Czech Republic, is surely one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and maybe in the world. Since the Middle Ages, it is considered a jewel of art and architecture. People call our New Year’s Eve destination “golden city” and also “city of hundred spires” or “the crown of the world”. It is located in the heart of Europe. What will they organize to celebrate the arrival of 2019?

It is full of small events around Prague, but we are interested in what will happen in Letná Gardens. There will be a traditional fireworks display and they will be visible on the river, from every bridge. This is not the only thing that we considered, also because fireworks are part of the party everywhere. Let’s see the plan to know better why Prague is our New Year’s Eve destination.

New Year’s Eve in Prague plan

It is possible to do river cruises (also if now the tickets are almost all sold out). There are boats for every taste, as the party one, the jazz one, and the panoramic. Unfortunately the boat with the dinner a la carte is already full. I have a friend in Prague who can help me with this. The New Year’s Eve on the river is something that I really like to do. It is something different. Around the city, performers will act with theatre and opera shows.

As midnight approaches the fireworks start. The river cruises, the restaurants, and the clubs already organized programs to allow guest to see the fireworks. Anyway, our decision was to choose the cruise. We can enjoy other people and meet locals and persons from other countries as well because the city is the New Year’s Eve destination for many travelers.

The cruise

Prague New Year’s Eve cruises are quite similar in terms of content. The tour requires about 5 hours and include obviously a scenic spot on the river. They give you a welcome drink and you can enjoy the buffet food, snacks, and music entertainment. Drink, chat, and dance are the keywords, to spend time with new people and of course with my friends.

It is also a good way to explore the city, or better to see it from a special point of view: the river. Going around you can see the main attractions and then make a plan for the visits. After the cruise, we will go maybe to some club, because all of them will have a fun party. The New Year’s Eve is an important moment to celebrate so I will try to enjoy it with my friends in Prague. I need your help, don’t forget it, because I have to define the accommodation: boutique hotel or luxury apartment? Stay tuned for my next post.

 

 

 

 

 

Luxury apartment for New Year’s Eve

What about a luxury apartment for New Year’s Eve? I asked this question to my friends because I found interesting proposals. I like to stay in hotels when I travel, because of the services. But going from a hotel to another it seems to me to be like a parcel post. That’s why sometimes I prefer to book an apartment. It gives me the feeling to be like at home. Of course, it is not the same, but it is more close than a hotel room.

In order to find a way to be less ‘tourist‘ for the New Year’s Eve, I am searching for a luxury apartment. I love the luxury setting and then with more rooms I can share it with my friends. It will cost less and we can manage it easily. Since the offers are a lot, I want to find the destination according to the availability of the best apartments.

My luxury apartment research

I decided to use Booking.com to have quickly a list of offers. Thanks to the filters I can easily activate the option I prefer to define better my research. In this way I skip all the properties I don’t like. This starting point helps me a lot. I can see the cities and also have some proposals with the prices. So I don’t start from the place but from the accommodation.

I can check the location, the pictures, and the features. This is really useful. Through this method, I can select the best luxury apartments in different cities around Europe and then I can decide what is the best choice. I and my friends are interested in a few days to break, so it is good to have comfortable rooms. Maybe the New Year’s Eve it will see us outside for a big part of the nights, but before and after we need a room where to relax.

The choice on the way

We need to decide quickly to book and organize our trip. That is why we are going to focus on the city events for the New Year’s Eve and as well on the luxury apartment features. What we really need in the house? Bedrooms, where to sleep separately, few bathrooms to not plan turns. Then a kitchen, a living room and of course a marvelous view.

The location is very important so this is one of the priorities. In the downtown or close to the main attractions and to the main events. This will be perfect to easily explore the place and as well to go easily where the party takes place. To have an amazing view helps also our stay. Thanks to Booking I can have the complete list and also to compare prices and to get the best deals on luxury apartments.
