Hi there & a big welcome to my favourite hangouts!
I love to travel and be a local no matter where I am in the world. It's the journey that makes the adventures.
Some of my favourite hang outs in Europe are listed here. It's only fair I share my haven with others along with the pleasure it brings me.
These are great getaway places and yet, you can feel as if you never left home. Each pad is my artist canvas - I do my own home renovations and interior decorations; contemporary, modern and tasteful. I've made it as comfy and convenient as possible because that's how I like my getaway place too.
I hope you get to enjoy them and explore the local delights. Would love to hear about your stay!
