Inside Vizcaya, Miami – USA

November 4, 2018

I have been to Vizcaya several times for photoshoots but this is the first time I really explored the inside and it did not disappoint. It reminds me a lot of Versailles in Paris, but just a smaller more Italian version! At the entrance, there is a large open space with glass panels on the…

Bocas House, Coral Gables – USA

September 20, 2018

I don’t usually like milkshakes and I blame my mum for that. When we were kids we had our medication with strawberry milkshake and since then I can’t go near the stuff – and even the smell of the Mc Donalds ones makes me feel ill. However, I specifically went to Bocas House for one…

Red Frog Beach – Panama

March 13, 2018

Red Frog Beach is one of those places that you read about and it sounds incredible, but when you are actually there, it kind of doesn’t live up to the expectations and isn’t as incredible as you had read. I mean, there is nothing wrong with it, don’t get me wrong, but I have been…
