cruise on the Nile - steam ship sudan

Egypt: magical cruise on the Nile, on-board the legendary Steam Ship Sudan

Egypt, Travel

If there was one boat for cruising the mythic Nile River, it’s the Steam Ship Sudan.

Once upon a time, there was a week where time was spent being pampered and being mesmerized by the Nile life and ancient Egyptian treasures. From Aswan to Luxor, the boat slowly ascends the river and stops at the most impressive temples of upper Egypt. 

As a young girl, I was always attracted to ancient Egyptian history! It has always been a dream to discover those treasures. After having seen this marvelous boat, it was obvious that we had plan our honeymoon around this cruise. Freshly married, we flew to Cairo, Aswan, and embarked on the Steam Ship Sudan for one of the most unforgettable, romantic and exclusive experience.

Piedmont: romantic & wine getaway at Villa la Madonna

Italy, Travel

Italy has a very special place in my heart, and without no surprise, it was the destination I chose to celebrate our first wedding anniversary!

I think piedmont is the perfect destination in spring or fall, it has the most beautiful landscape view with the green vine, warm weather or the orange leaves, truffle hunt and cozy evening by the fireplace. 

My definition of a perfect place is a great destination but so the perfect hotel to stay. I give a lot of importance to the comfort and the design of a property; I love it when it has a soul and history.

I am sharing with you my little treasure in the heart of Piedmont: “Villa la Madonna”!

Where to stay in Tokyo

Japan, Travel

With all the accommodation options available in Tokyo, it is not easy to decide where to stay.

Ryokan, hotels, capsule, apartment? Which neighborhood? So many questions you may have when it is time to book your stay! I have to say that I like hotels and especially, properties with a design and an identity. I will not list the whole Tokyo accommodation portfolio but a selection of places I have experienced or liked.

Nara has a special place in my heart, as the day trip we had was magical! A stop in Nara is mandatory while you travel in the Kansai region. Near Kyoto and Osaka, the ancient capital of Japan is well known for its beautiful wild deer, but it is also a city full of temples and shrines. Let me tell you about my favorite places in Nara for your future visit to the magical city of deer!
