Sorry friends, family and followers!

I’ve neglected my blog for some time (life gets busy…you know) but you’ll start seeing posts more frequently with images from my recent travels – starting with Iceland.

Where can you comfortably swim into snow-capped mountains?

pool

The Cambrian Hotel, Switzerland

This heated pool is both beautiful by day and night with it’s magnificent location in the Swiss Alps.  While the outdoor pool features unique views where you feel as if you’re swimming into these snow-capped mountains, The Cambrian Hotel also offers an array of award winning spa services (among the top 20 swiss wellness hotels) that combine intriguing treatments like their mountain herb massage and blackberry wrap in conjunction with their relaxing atmosphere.  While the boutique hotel is fully loaded with all relaxation tools, you can escape outdoors to enjoy the more adventurous seasonal activities such as skiing (Winter), hiking, and biking (Summer).

“We have 71 rooms altogether. All of them are en-suite and many of the suites have more than one shower or bathroom. Containing furniture from the likes of B&B Italia, Porada and Knoll International, as well as what was made locally, our bedrooms are the ultimate in comfort and style. All come with a flatscreen TV, DVD player and WiFi. The views from all our rooms are superb, particularly those facing south.”

3 (unique) things to do near Naples, Italy

naples beach

La Spiaggia dei 300 Scalini – The Beach of the 300 Steps

“This beach is about 1 ½ hours north of Naples and has white sand with crystal-clear water. The catch? You have to descend 300 steep steps to enjoy this little oasis. However, it’s well worth it! Summer weekends feature beach parties and camping.”

Food, naples

Il Garum

“Il Garum is a small restaurant located in the heart of Naples’ historic district. They serve incredibly fresh seafood in a small piazza overlooking a busy street, so it’s great for people-watching. Their carpaccios are great as well as their eggplant, zucchini and mozarella-stuffed grilled squid. Yum!”

naples, Island of procia

The Island of Procida

“The island of Procida is a 1-hour ferry ride from Naples and is less famous than nearby Capri and Ischia – which means…less crowded! The best way to see the island is by boat or on foot. There are plenty of places to rent a small boat, great coves to swim in and small boutique shops with fun clothes and gifts for those not fortunate enough to travel with you to this beautiful island!”

All the pictures and information provided in this guest post was from a close friend whom I met in Tanzania, Bianca Hilary Kenworthy.

Bianca can speak Italian beautifully (fluently), and has been visiting family there since she was patiently waiting in her moms belly. Not only is she a Senior Account Executive at Auster Events but also runs an Italian Food blog that specializes in delicious homemade pastas.
