Travel Spain. The best museums, palaces and churches in Madrid

Travel Spain. The best museums, palaces and churches in Madrid

Madrid, the capital of Spain, is hot in summer, but it is oh so very cool to visit. If you haven’t been yet, please plan to go soon. It is really worth a trip, and it is so very different from Barcelona in Catalonia. It obviously is different, since it is in a very different part of the country. The actress Penelope Cruz and Enrique Iglesias the Spanish singer and songwriter were born in Madrid. How can one not love a city with romantic-sounding street names, like for example Costanilla de Los Ángeles?

With a size of 605.8 km² Madrid is huge, but still, you can walk everywhere, as a matter of fact you wouldn’t need to use public transport at all. I’m a big fan of looking at towns by foot, which is when I attain the most unexpected finds. Start walking and you will discover Madrid slowly. Spend as much time as you like at the places you love. Go with the flow and walk for hours and hours, and don’t forget to eat, drink coffee and take photos. I spent two weeks in Madrid and here I show you the very best museums, palaces and churches I visited.

Travel Croatia. This is why you absolutely have to see Rovinj

From Berlin I drive 1,200 km through Germany, Austria, Slovenia, and I also come very close to Italy before I reach Rovinj in Istria on the Adriatic Coast in Croatia. It is fantastic how diverse all these countries are, and as a very happy citizen of a globalized world I appreciate every single one. Croatia is really one of the prettiest places to visit. Excellent food, clear waters, and what I really love is that people have the best humour; it is just such a great place. If you haven’t been yet, go and make a plan. Now.

Eyewitness Stellenbosch, South Africa: Life Coach Marlize Stander

Stellenbosch is a picturesque town in South Africa’s Western Cape and the home of Marlize Stander. Marlize is probably one of the most authentic people you can meet. She loves South Africa, travelling, food and wine and is very passionate about hiking, dancing and theatre. Her positive outlook on life is contagious. 

She enthusiastically puts her dreams into actions. That ability makes her the perfect person to be a Life Coach; she enjoys assisting people to do this too. I met her weeks and weeks ago, and when I think of her I foremost remember her sweetness. I was so very happy, when busy Marlize confirmed to have time to talk about Stellenbosch in South Africa.
