Positano, Italy

This picturesque fisherman’s village is nestled on the steep, rocky coast overlooking Amalfi Bay. The town has managed to retain its traditional architectural style and offers a laid-back way of life with plenty of quaint cafes and restaurants for visitors to relax in after they’ve seen all that Positano has to offer. It’s also home to some of the most stunning beaches in Italy.


Positano is a popular destination for honeymooners and families alike, as it offers plenty of restaurants with seaside views, children’s summer camps and lively festivals that attract visitors from all over the world. There are also multiple opportunities to explore Positano’s stunning nature by walking or cycling along rugged coastal paths on the cliffs above the sea.

A short drive from Positano is the charming town of Santa Margherita Ligure, which offers visitors a more tranquil experience than its larger neighbors and has been recognized as one of Italy’s prettiest villages for centuries. Nicknamed ‘Pearl of the Riviera’, it also holds an annual carnival with floats made out of flowers and is famous for its Chianina beef, which can be sampled in the town’s restaurants.

Milos, Greece

Milos is a Greek island with a population of about 5000 residents. The beaches are so beautiful that it has been called “Greek’s Caribbean.” Nowadays, there is not much to do in Milos except for relaxing and swimming in its crystal clear waters. There are no hotels, only one restaurant, and very few souvenir shops where you can buy postcards, olive oil, and honey.


The best way to get from the airport to the island of Milos is by boat. From Athens, it takes about 45 minutes while a hydrofoil will take only 15-20 minutes. The ferries are generally cheaper but there have been reports of long delays when traveling on this route.

There is also a way to get from Piraeus by taking the Blue Star ferry, which takes about an hour and 20 minutes. However, it’s usually overpriced because of how few ferries are running on this route. You can often find availability for cheaper prices if you book in advance or have flexible travel dates as there were in the past.

So, if you’re looking for a relaxing destination this holiday season to escape from it all and enjoy some time off from work or school then Milos is perfect! There’s nothing like splashing around in its crystal clear waters with your friends and family on a hot summer day.

Lindau, Germany

The Bavarian town of Lindau on the shores of Lake Constance is a popular place to relax and enjoy some time in nature. The town has been inhabited since at least Roman times, but its tourism industry boomed as soon as the opening of this train line across Europe made it possible for more people than ever before to explore what was then a very remote area. Today, Lindau is one of the most popular destinations in southern Germany and its main industry is tourism with over five million visitors every year.

With cobbled streets, an excellent restaurant scene, and a rich cultural heritage including watchmaking, this is the perfect place for those looking to take it slow on their next European vacation.

Hveragerði, Iceland

Hveragerði is a small town in Iceland, with only about 600 citizens. One of its most iconic features is the geothermal power station that heats, water flowing through pipes to nearby houses and offices. Hveragerði has many natural hot springs due to volcanic activity underground – there are over 100 different ones!

There are many ways to enjoy the hot spring in Hveragerði. One popular way is by going into the natural pools and tubs at Reykjadalur, which were once used as bathing areas for horses! At Reitargata you can go geothermal fishing – there’s no need for bait or tackle because the fish are attracted to the warmth of the water.

You can also use hot springs as a means of cooking – in Hveragerði you’ll find restaurants that focus on dishes cooked with hot springs, like rice pudding or lamb stewed with potatoes and served over mashed potatoes and carrots! And if you want some outdoor adventure while you’re in Hveragerði, you can go snowmobiling or ice climbing.
