Have you ever checked out Black&Wood, the travel blog run by Parisian adventurers Marine and Thibault? If not, you should if you need some inspiration for future travel destinations. Picking up where we left off, we collaborated with them again for a travel guide to the Basque Country. Here’s what they reported back with after their two week trip!
A few years back when we were in Portugal we fell for Lisbon’s colorful streets and laidback vibe, but unfortunately, we didn’t have the time to visit Porto back then. So, when we had a few days to spare for a city trip this summer, we knew we had to hit Portugal’s northern jewel!
Bruges is one of the most popular Belgian tourist destinations but obviously, there’s more to Bruges than chocolates, lace and churches. It’s also a city thriving with young entrepreneurs of all sorts, all offering a different perspective on the Venice of the North. Whom better than our own team to guide us through the city in style?
If Brussels is our yin, Paris definitely is our yang. We know that finding the nicest spots in a city as big as Paris can be a daunting task. But hey, we’re here to help! Let’s zoom in on Le Marais, one of our favorite neighborhoods in the city. We asked the teams in our Rue du Temple and Rue de Saintonge stores for their inside info and here’s what they came up with.
If you know who we are, you know our capital continues to inspire and amaze us every day. Its eclectic mix of neighborhoods, nationalities and cultures is unparalleled. We figured that some pointers by locals might come in handy for those unfamiliar, so we asked our teams in Rue des Chartreux and Place Stephanie for some of their favorite spots.
With a suitcase full of light and comfy Bellerose summer wear and a couple of cameras, our favorite explorers Nuria Val & Coke Bartrina got on a plane to the States, where they embarked on a beautiful road trip. To wrap things up and to give all of you some travel inspiration, we sat down with the couple who was kind enough to review the whole adventure with us.
Venice is obviously renowned for its canals and Piazza San Marco, but it’s also known as “the city of love” by tourists from all over the world. This time around we wanted to see the city from the inside, from a local family’s perspective. That’s why we decided to meet up with Mara and Matteo, a couple of entrepreneurs in the world of wine and art.
After a long and cold winter, we wanted to head somewhere warm and colorful to start off Spring: Marrakech. After hearing so much about the wonders of the city, we wanted to see it for ourselves. One thing is certain: either you’ll love it, or you’ll hate it, but there’s no way that Marrakech will leave you indifferent.
