10 wonders of Provence and Cote d'Azur

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

The following list was the one that inspired me much before planning the trip itinerary for the Cote d'Azur travel: the 10 wonders of Provence and Cote d'Azur, that can be easily considered as top travel destinations.

What was really exciting was the presence, besides the main touristic destinations, of some precious and less known places, worth a real exploration of Europe! :-)

Due to the lack of time, we could not visit all of them, but the few visited were stunning and I hope to visit the other ones!

This is the list of the 10 wonders of Provence and Cote d'Azur (keep in mind that's not a chart):

- Antibes: the beautiful Antibes has an incredible medieval town, a couple of castles, a quiet atmosphere within its ramparts and some of the best Cote d'Azur beaches.

Presentation of the Cote d'Azur travel

Have you ever wondered of a place where you can combine beautiful sea, charming and medieval cities, the Mediterranean atmosphere and stunning landscape? Yes, it has a name: the Cote d'Azur ( for some known as French Riviera) in France.

Just few weeks later than the road trip July 2012, another road trip was planned together with my girlfriend and was the Cote d'Azur travel, that I can consider one of the best road trips ever made too because of its cities, islands, sea and particular atmosphere.

We chose the Cote d'Azur travel because it is not far from Milan, approximately 3 hours and a half by car, and for its incredible appeal.

In fact it is a coastline that should be visited by everyone, ideal to relax on the Cote d'Azur beaches and visit beautiful cities and little islands.

This time the trip itinerary was a bit different from the one of the road trip July 2012, as we did sleep in different cities but just chose a base close to Cannes, in an Etap Hotel and day by day we went to a different city or island.

Travel essentials: a quality photo camera

Sunday, December 9, 2012

The modern traveller or explorer can use many electronic devices such as digital cameras, notebooks, mobile phones, smartphones, tablets, e-books and much more.

People that love travelling and visiting constantly new cities along their journey know that it’s impossible to bring everything: if you belong to this group, welcome on board! The more you travel the more you realize that there are so many useless things that you bring and you will reduce the next time.

In few words it’s important to identify your own travel essentials, things you cannot leave at home. This depends on you: you could think that your smartphone or tablet is an travel essential, or your reflex camera, or your mp3 player with your favourite playlist.

Presentation of Travel News

Today Diaries of an Explorer is going to make a presentation of the website Travel News.

Last month I realized that some traffic was coming from this website and I was thinking it was one of the directories where I submitted my rss too, typical strategy of each webmaster.

One day the webmaster of Travel News, Homer, asked me if I could write a guest post as some users of this website were sharing my posts! :-) It was really pleasant to me!

So I checked the website and found it so interesting that I put it there on my "Interesting sites and links" list that you can find on the right side here.


The birth

Travel News was born at the end of June 2012 as a community of travel bloggers whose purpose was to collect in one place good articles for places we wanted to visit, as in that time Homer and his team did not know where to go on holiday last summer.

After the first article about Mallorca, they came back from holidays and the website "collected more than 1.000 articles" from people they "didn't even know". So he said "we started to support more actively and we started to implement features that users were requesting".
