Iceland is also referred to as The Land Of Fire And Ice. Part of the island is formed by the activities of the still active volcanoes and the other formed by the glaciers. It is a land of extremes and these extremes make it a great place to spend some time before you head over to mainland Europe.
Iceland is a place of wonder and history. You can hang out and view the Northern Lights (also known as the Aurora Borealis) while looking upon the same sky the Vikings did over 1000 years ago.
You can also gather in local restaurants to hear stories of elves and trolls. A land of such extremes supports a population of only around 300,000 people.
Let’s get that trip to Europe planned with a little layover in Iceland.

A simplistic but tongue tantalising dish of spaghetti bolognese to satisfy my taste buds.
A significant number of tourists usually focus their Italy travels on the watery city of Venice, the old city of Rome and around the historic, artistic and beautiful town of Florence. While others would love to spend some time drinking wine in Tuscany's rolling hills, very few would want to head to Bologna. However, this narrative is changing thanks to the broad range of culinary options that the city of Bologna guarantees.
As more and more travelers continue to discover Bologna's culinary prowess, this beautiful city could yet become the top tourist attraction in Italy in the coming years. In fact, Bologna is the only city in Italy where travelers can eat well and then board a train or even a plane to almost anywhere.

Istanbul. Mosquée bleue. Turquie.
Souvenirs d’Istanbul. La mosquée bleue fait partie de ces quelques monuments du monde qui ont bercé des milliers d’hommes et de femmes à travers l’histoire. Longtemps cet extraordinaire lieu de culte qui tenta de surpasser la cathédrale Sainte Sophie, sa voisine bâtie 1000 ans plus tôt par Justinien, empereur de Byzance, alimenta les rêves des enfants pris sous le charme des 1001 nuits. Mais point d’Aladin ou de princesses envoûtantes sous ces extraordinaires coupoles… Juste la paix et l’enchantement d’un lieu unique à la beauté époustouflante. Jamais je n’oublierai ce moment où pour la première fois, je foulai les épais tapis de la mosquée. Un vrai moment de grâce.
Memories of Istanbul. The Blue Mosque is one of those few monuments in the world that has rocked thousands of men and women throughout history. For a long time this extraordinary place of worship that tried to surpass the cathedral Saint Sophia, its neighbor built 1,000 years earlier by Justinian, emperor of Byzantium, ueled the dreams of children caught under the spell of 1001 nights. But the point of Aladdin or enchanting princesses in these extraordinary domes ... Just peace and enchantment of a unique place in the breathtaking beauty. I will never forget that moment when, for the first time, I trod the thick carpets of the mosque. A true moment of grace.
