When we hear the word Cannes, we immediately think of that film festival or the glitz and glamor that this port city is famous for. As one of the top destinations for the jetsetters in the French Riviera it is obvious that almost everything in this town is expensive and chic. Luckily, ALMOST everything. The important question is how can you spend a day in Cannes on a low budget? Well, I may have some tips to do that!
Sometimes you think that the grass is greener on the other side. You look for something beautiful too far. We tend to do this as well while travelling. I encountered a gem at a city nearby the place I live: Breda. I have only been in this city once and it was eight years ago. What intended to be a few hours of chit-chatting with fellow blogger Ruby from rubybackpacking, ended up to be a half day of wandering.
Now that I live in Europe, I have managed to check list my travelling bucket list that I have since I was a little child. And I gotta tell ya, the list is loooong, waaay toooo loong to mention. There are places like Petra, Napa Valley, Manchu Pichu, The Pasific Highway or Andalusia that I still need to go to, but last July I was able to check out one of the many while in Italy. It was Cinque Terre! Checked!
I have to tell you. If you go to Italy, Florence is one of the must visit cities, even though only for one day. I have been in Firenze (Florence or Fiorentina, you name it) in 2010 and was extremely delighted by … well… the charms of the city. It is not Rome, It is not Venice… It’s Firenze. It’s Tuscany in a city. When you have just arrived at the train station Santa Maria Novella, you won’t believe me but when you are at Piazza Michelangelo, you will know what I mean.
A few posts earlier I mentioned about my plan of having my birthday “celebration” in Verona, at Giuletta’s house to be precise. Why? Because my name is Yulia, which is derived from Juliet, a.k.a Giuletta. Haha, nice try! However, Verona is quite far from Bologna, our main post for the week in Italy and after having two hectic days with the little one, it was wiser to stay in the city and explore it instead.
