Travel Inspiration by Month

Austria

When it comes to countries rich in breathtaking scenery, grand architecture, and cultural significance, Austria certainly takes the cake. With its fairytale villages, immaculate Alps, cosmopolitan cities, and a profound legacy in classical music, Austria has it all. Wander through the opulent royal palaces like Schönbrunn and Hofburg in Vienna or delve into the country's musical heritage by visiting Mozart's birthplace in Salzburg.

Marvel at the unparalleled beauty of Austria's alpine landscapes, from soaring peaks to lush meadows and crystal-clear lakes. Savor a slice of sachertorte in an elegant Viennese coffeehouse or indulge in traditional dishes like wiener schnitzel and apfelstrudel in cozy taverns. Time your visit just right, and you might experience some uniquely Austrian events such as the aristocratic Viennese Balls or the world-renown Christmas markets.

Bali

Prepare to enter Bali one person and emerge another. The Island of the Gods tends to have that transformative effect on travelers. This is an idyllic paradise where you can wake up to the gentle rustling of palm trees in your opulent villa, surrounded by lush rice terraces or overlooking unobstructed sea views. Start your morning with sunrise yoga on the beach followed by a meticulously prepared breakfast of the freshest local ingredients.

Fill your days with visits to vibrant markets, soak up the sun on miles upon miles of pristine beaches, pick up a new skill or two during private surfing lessons, and take in the cultural wonders such as ornate ancient temples. Come evening, invite yourself to slow down with a pampering spa or wellness treatment, and witness the stunning shades of a Balinese sunset before slipping off your shoes at your beachside dinner under the stars.

Belgium

Scenic small towns resting on lakes, canals winding around glorious architecture and of course, world-famous, melt-in-your-mouth Belgian chocolate. These are the first things that come to mind when you  think of Belgium. This idyllic country is a canvas of contrasts, waiting to be explored. On the one hand, there is Antwerp with its cutting-edge fashion scene, while on the other lies the grandeur of Ardennes' verdant landscapes. 

From the majestic spires of Brussels' Grand Place to the serene tranquility of Han caves, Belgium beckons with its diverse culture, cuisine, and captivating history. Whether you're savoring a crisp pint of Trappist beer or marveling at the masterpieces of Flemish painters, here is where you can experience an intricate blend of past and present, tradition and innovation.

Inspiring Italy: Culture and Passion You Will Want to Experience

Taking a trip to Italy is unlike visiting any other country - it feels like stepping into a living work of art, where cobblestoned streets beckon you to stroll for just a little longer, and sparkling coastlines entice you to dive into their azure depths.

Head north to Venice, a dreamy city where gondolas glide through canals and palaces rise from the lagoon. Along the Amalfi Coast, pastel-hued villages cling to dramatic cliffs, while winding roads offer breathtaking sea views.
