When asked about their favorite love story I’m sure many people would pick Romeo & Juliet right off the bat. There simply is an irresistible charm of the idea of two young lovers in Italy that has people fascinated.

Well, trip sounds a bit too grand, it was one weekend, but nevertheless I was proudly wearing my borrowed headlamp and drinking my pink champagne.

Wouldn’t it be great if mermaids really did exist?

I often get asked by friends and people I meet what would be a nice location to travel to for just a few days, one that, ideally, is not too far away or expensive to get to. My answer is always the same – Italy! Great food, wonderful landscapes, friendly locals, charming architecture – what’s not to love? No matter how many times I travel there it never ceases to …

I’ve been following @nicnorgacia for nearly two years and every time I see a photo of his on Instagram I think, I must share his amazing photos with the Travelettes readers.
So finally that’s what I’m doing.
Hey, you can’t say I’m not diligent at keeping my promises. I’m just not very prompt at doing so.
Here are five reasons why I love Mr Nicanor García’s photos.
