Gulf Country, Florida – Globetrotter Girls

Author: , August 31st, 2016

Gulf Country, Florida

Everybody talks about the nightlife in Miami, Disneyworld in Orlando, the natural beauty of the Keys. What about Florida’s gulf coast though? That’s a side of the sunshine state that falls mainly under the radar, despite offering just as many exciting adventures as Florida’s Atlantic coastline has. And Gulf County isn’t just a summer destination: the prime season here is September through March. So if you’re thinking about taking a trip to Florida, why not consider the Gulf Coast?

244 miles of coastline

I bet you didn’t know that Gulf County has 244 miles of glorious coastline along the Florida panhandle. What’s different from other parts of Florida’s coast? Gulf County has remained its nature – there, you don’t find an aggressive invasion of nature like in Miami for example, where barely any nature is left. Instead of man-made, artificial beaches, you can still experience true nature, tranquility and the unspoiled ocean. The stunningly beautiful Cape San Blas is home to St. Joseph Peninsula State Park, which was named the best beach in America a few years ago.

Water of all kinds

One thing that makes Gulf County special is that it has access to several bodies of water: the Gulf of Mexico of course, the saltwater of St Joseph Bay, the Gulf County Canal, Apalachicola Bay and river basin, Indian Pass Lagoon, and the freshwater of Chipola River and the Dead Lakes. These waters are all connected and give nature lovers access to untouched nature and wildlife – bird watching, fishing, hiking the nature trails and ecotouring is possible in all of those places.

Alberobello Trulli, Puglia – The Scruffy Italian Traveler

Author: , August 31st, 2016

Alberobello Trulli - Sergio Scardia

As you know, or as at least the name of my blog should suggest, I am Italian 🙂 I actually come from a beautiful region of Italy: Puglia! Apulia (as it is often known abroad, from its original latin name), the so called heel of the boot is a gem full of wonders! Please let me show you one of these: the Alberobello trulli.

First of all: what is a trullo? A trullo is a traditional construction, typical of the Valle d’Itria: a small round house made of dry stone with a conical roof. The Valle d’Itria is a specific area of Puglia, spreading over three different provinces: Bari, Brindisi and Taranto.

Trulli started to be built in this area in the 16th century as farmers’ shelters. As some historics say, being built only of stones, trulli could be seen as a temporary storehouses to avoid taxation, as they were easy to dismantle when the King’s tax inspectors were in the area. Whatever the real origin of these constructions, the heavy stone walls have a practical reason: to ease with some cool the baking summers of Puglia, and to preserve the warmth from the fireplaces during the otherwise cold winters.

Summer in New York City – Globetrotter Girls

Author: , August 29th, 2016

New York City - Dani

This past week was all about Central Park! I was staying a couple of blocks away from New York’s largest (and most famous) park, and so I ended up there for one reason or another every single day.

There were runs in the park (it was Central Park, by the way, where I became a serious runner and finished my first race in 2010), several writing sessions on a blanket in the sun (those are the times when I love being a freelancer), a picnic and tour of the park which I shared on Snapchat (my ID is mariposa2711) and, pictured above, an epic sunset session with cheese and wine, a game of boule and a catch-up with my fellow travel bloggers Caroline and Kristin.

As much as I love Prospect Park, Brooklyn’s answer to Central Park, close to which I’m usually staying, the majestic feel of Central Park is just unrivaled.

Basel, Switzerland – City of Cultural Nirvana

Author: , August 29th, 2016

Kunstmuseum Basel

Cheese and chocolate. Yes, they’re two of Switzerland’s tastiest exports. But what really stands out about Basel – which, with 170,000 inhabitants, is Switzerland’s third largest city after Zurich and Geneva – is the vibrancy of its art and cultural scenes. Basel, which borders France and Germany, has the most museums (almost 40) of any Swiss destination, and they saturate every street – along with shops, hotels, restaurants and bars that scream luxury and decadence. All in all, the city’s offers the perfect formula for the perfect weekend away.

Here’s our guide to Basel’s best cultural attractions along with our top restaurant and hotel recommendations in five easy steps…

Our first visit was to the Kunstmuseum Basel with its vast collection of historic and modern art. The main building was erected in 1931 and an extension added in April this year; the latter was designed by the renowned Basel-based architecture firm Christ & Gantenbein. We visited a provoking exhibition called Sculpture On The Move 1946-2016, and this gobsmacking building is certainly the place for it; it’s on until 18 September. If you’re interested in the evolution of sculpture from World War 11 to the present, and are a fan of the likes of Alberto Giacometti to Koons, this is the exhibit for you.
