Best Beaches in Parga – Visiting Greece

Parga is one of the prettiest places I’ve ever visited. For some reason I didn’t expect much from its beaches. Maybe it was because of the fact that Parga isn’t an island or that most pictures just show the Disney colored bay with the town rising up on the hill. So I was very pleasantly pleased to discover three really beautiful beaches within easy distance from Parga during our visit to this amazing town. So, what are the best beaches in Parga?

Day Tour in Scotland: Glenfinnan, Mallaig & Jacobite Steam Train

Day tour in Scotland

A few weeks ago I told you about a trip to England and Scotland we did this summer. I’ve wanted to tell you more about it and now it’s time to browse the pictures and write about a day tour in Scotland we took from Glasgow. We booked it through a company called DiscoverScotland. It was a tour that took us to Glenfinnan, Mallaig and Jacobite Steam Train.

Has it ever happened to you that when you come back from a day trip to a historical or otherwise spectacular travel destination, you find that you have about 500 photos to go through? Of just that one day. That’s what happened to me when I came back to Parga from a day trip to Meteora Monasteries in Greece. Well, 581 photos to be exact. And I’m not even counting the ones I have on my mobile phone…

Restaurants in Parga, Greece

Restaurants in Parga Greece

I’ve just recently spent an amazing week in Greece, in a small town called Parga. The place is absolutely beautiful and – at least this time of the year – peaceful and calm. It’s not great for people with kids or for people with mobility impairments (you’ll be walking up and down a hill a lot!) but if you’re a couple looking for a romantic getaway, this is your place!

I find it little embarrassing to admit this but the thing I was most looking forward to on this journey was not the scenery or relaxation. It was the food. I love Greek food – well, who doesn’t? And the great thing was that wherever we ate out in Parga, the food was always good. We were never disappointed. So I thought I’d make a little list (with pictures of course) for you of the restaurants in Parga that we visited. I hope this helps you to make up your mind which restaurants you want to try in Parga:

Mam Tor in the Peak District, England

Mam Tor in the Peak District

Once again we took a flight to London last summer – yes, we always seem to travel to England (take a look at my trips to the Cotswolds and Oxford) and took a train and bus up to the Peak District. I’ve been to the Lake District before and loved it so we decided to this time head to another area in the same direction.

There’s a lot to see and do in the Peak District, but one of the very first things I decided we would have to do was to make a trip to Mam Tor. The pictures were so beautiful that I knew we had to do it. And I’m so glad we did. Here’s what you do:

A trip to Königssee and Obersee from Berchtesgaden

A trip to Königssee and Obersee from Berchtesgaden

Are you planning a trip to Munich or some other town in the southern parts of Germany or western parts of Austria? And you would like to spend a couple of days away from the city to see the Alps and some natural beauty?

For this purpose, I cannot recommend Berchtesgaden with a trip to Königssee and Obersee highly enough. Or for any other purpose really.

It has to be one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever visited.

Berchtesgaden is known for three sights in particular: The Eagle’s Nest, Berchtesgaden Salt Mines and the K√∂nigssee. During our trip we visited them all but what really blew me away was the trip to K√∂nigssee. And not even K√∂nigssee itself, but a walk from K√∂nigssee to a smaller lake called Obersee. And that’s what this article is about.
