10 things about visiting Miami - Florida

If you are fed up with the winter season, cold grey days and so on...you definitely must go to Miami! 
That's what we did. We took some days off to enjoy the beautiful Florida sunshine.
 Believe me it's worth!

Hope you enjoy Miami as well!

One good hint is to try to rent a flat in South Beach. 
It's very practical and less expensive than you imagine.
Also rent a car so you can drive until Key West!








Mojitos and donuts...
Really? Come on! ;)



If you want to take pictures of palm trees...Miami is the place!


 Of course, pictures of beaches, sunshine and happy moments!





The ocean color is amazing! 
You feel like you are inside a "masterpiece"! 




You must enjoy a psychedelic sunset on Key West!



And wake up early to appreciate a breathtaking sunrise
 like this one in Melbourne Beach!


Go shopping, take a bike or walk through 
the modern Miami downtown...


Enjoy a different exquisite meal... like this one at Ceviche 105, a very cool Peruvian restaurant! And don't forget the "Inca Kola" for drink! :)

Lose yourself walking along the beautiful streets in Coral Gables and if you love golf, swimming or a special spa day in a luxury way, this is the place for you: The Coral Gables Biltmore Hotel. 
I know what you are thinking...And the answer is "nope ... I did not stay there" :)




A special thank you to our beloved friends Lowell and Lois Anne. So nice to meet you!

Love you guys!

Château de Chantilly - France

Last December we visited the 
Château de Chantilly in France.


The Castle was first fortified in Roman times and was in continuous occupation throughout the Middle Ages.
You can read  the interesting story of this castle at Castles and Palaces of the World  website  and also at Wikipedia.











We also tasted the Crème Chantilly and it's really delicious!

The University of Padova - Italy

According to their webpage The University of Padova was established in 1222, after a group of students and teachers decided to come here from Bologna. Defending freedom of thought in study and teaching became a distinctive feature which today lives on in the University motto: Universa Universis Patavina Libertas.

In the 16th and 17th centuries, Padova became a workshop of ideas and the home to figures who changed the cultural and scientific history of humanity. They included Andrea Vesalio, who founded modern anatomy, as well as the astronomer Copernicus, and Galileo.

Guided tours are available and we had the opportunity to be there
 in the last visit of the year last december.
Guided tours information








 "On 25 June 1678, Elena Lucrezia Cornaro Piscopia a Venetian noblewoman and mathematician became the first woman to be awarded a Doctor of Philosophy degree."
