Athens And A Woman’s Intuition

What Italy Taught Me

Come with me as I show you Italy through my eyes: my family’s village outside of Naples, the Amalfi Coast and Capri. I also share a great lesson I learned while being there.

What I’m wearing from our clothing line:

Simplicity Leggings: The pattern on the leggings are images taken from a beautiful Brazilian AGATE Crystal. As a stone of harmony, one of the things agate does is balance yin/yang energy. It is a soothing and calming stone which works slowly but brings great strength. It is associated with the crown chakra.

Passion Leggings: The pattern on the leggings are images taken from a beautiful GOLD AGATE MACRO Crystal. Agate enhances creativity and strengthens the intellect, making it a beneficial stone for both students and artists. Gold Agate is associated with the solar plexus chakra to help you gain more self-confidence as well as the ability to learn from your past mistakes.

Harmony Leggings: The pattern on the leggings are images taken from a beautiful GREEN ONYX Crystal. Onyx is associated with the root chakra. It assists with challenges in life, especially those caused by a drain of energy. It prevents the draining away of personal energy and can be used for protection from such. It also helps with grounding or eliminating unwanted energies.

Nonna was were our Sincere Headband: The pattern on this headband is an image taken from a beautiful BLUE GEODE CRYSTAL. Blue geodes aid with the throat chakra. Geodes are known to have very strong powers. Geodes are believed to be able to help see the ‘whole perspective’ and to see situations from different viewpoints. Geodes are especially powerful in alleviating stress and strengthening spirituality.

Intuition Crop Top: Our fashion-forward tank is super soft and a great reminder to always follow your gut. Our souls do communicate with us if we choose to listen.  The cropped and boxy silhouette, round neck and elongated arm holes make this style perfect for layering.

Budapest: Facing Fear

This was definitely one of my favorite cities. This capital city has two sides, Buda and Pest, stretching along the banks of the Danube, representing two different characters of the city. Suburban Buda and its historic castle district offer medieval streets and houses, museums, caves and Roman ruins. The dynamic Pest side boasts the largest parliament building in Europe, riverside promenades, flea markets, bookstores, antique stores and café houses.

Come with me as I show you my favorite spots in Budapest and share what I learned about facing my fear.

Where I stayed:
Hotel Palazzo Zichy is absolutely amazing. The staff, the room, the breakfast was all on point. The building, a former palace from the 19th century was turned into a four star hotel and has elegant contemporary style rooms. The facade and the interior preserved the beauty of the old mansion built for the famous Hungarian noble, Count Nándor Zichy and for his family. The hotel is situated in the Palace District surrounded by restaurants, bars, terraces, cafes and little shops. The building is within walking distance of the Hungarian National Museum, the Great Synagogue, the Great Market Hall and the Holocaust Memorial Center.

What I’m wearing:

I’m sporting our Intelligent Yoga Leggings while dancing like a nut in a shop window. Sometimes you have to step outside your box…lol! The pattern on the leggings are images taken from a beautiful AGATE MOTLEY Crystal. All agates can remove blockages from any chakra. Agate enhances creativity and strengthens the intellect, making it a beneficial stone for both students and artists. It is also known as a good luck stone.

Prague: What I Learned From Princess Libuse

Prague is one of the most magical cities I have ever been to. It looks as if Walt Disney got his inspiration for Fairy Tale Castles from Prague’s amazing architecture. My favorite thing to do was the walking tours. I learned so much about this city’s history and about powerful female figures that made quite an impact. One woman in particular stuck out to me and this was the tale of Princess Libuse.

Princess Libuse was the daughter of the God Krok and as legend has it, she had visionary powers. Libuse is said to have foreseen the seven hills of Prague growing into a marvelous city (which indeed happened), thus she’s considered to be the mother of beautiful Prague.

Princess Libuse taught me a great lesson in patience and trust. Watch to find out…why?

Berlin: Learning From The Pain

Berlin is definitely one of the most interesting cities I have ever visited. It is a thriving European city filled with artists, musicians and entrepreneurs. At the moment, it is one of Europe’s most cutting edge cities when it comes to young people being able to think outside the box and create. It was so interesting to see all this happening while exploring the city’s haunting past. Berlin is where Hitler resided and the city fell victim to some of the biggest attacks during World War 2. After the fall of Nazi Germany, Berlin was occupied by the Soviets and the Berlin Wall went up in 1961. Come with me while I take you on a journey of this miraculous city.

Best Places To Stay In Berlin:

Sir Savigny:

Sir Savigny is a boutique hotel situated in the centre of West Berlin. This luxury urban retreat built in 1893 showcases the works of local artists and craftsmen. The rooms are designed for the modern aristocrat with custom furnishing, lightning, fabrics and books. And lets not forget about the awesome bathtub…this was my favorite feature. I also had a fully stacked bar with a nespresso machine in my room. This place was an absolute dream. I also had a delicious breakfast and dinner at their restaurant “The Butcher”. The service was amazing. Ask for Siv if you stop by, she was my favorite waitress.

Generator Berlin Hostel & Apartments:

I can’t say enough amazing things about Generator Berlin in the Mitte district (center of the city) . I stayed in their amazing two story apartment. It was spacious, modern and clean with it’s beautiful wood floors. I had sweeping views of the city, a flat screen TV, an amazing kitchen and a nespresso machine. Their hostel below is a great oasis for travelers. I met so many friends and toured the city with people from all over the world. They also have laundry facilities, an amazing organic café and hopping bar. If you stay at this hostel you are sure to meet many friends and have a fulfilling stay in Berlin. The Generator Berlin is a must.

I’m wearing our beautiful Grace leggings. Not only are these great for yoga, I can add a touch of color and fun to a gloomy city. The pattern on the leggings are images taken directly from a ROSE ONYX Crystal. Onyx is associated with the root chakra. It assists with challenges in life, especially those caused by a drain of energy. It prevents the draining away of personal energy and can be used for protection from such. It also helps with grounding or eliminating unwanted energies. https://confusedgirlinthecity.com/

Visit Belgium: More Than Meets The Eye

Belgium was the second stop on my euro trip. Belgium is perhaps the world’s most misunderstood nation, with three official languages, and an intense regional rivalry between the Flemish-speaking north and the French-speaking south. Regardless, the Belgium’s do two things better than anyone else in the world: Beer and Chocolate.

Come with me while I take you to some of the greatest cities in this country, Brussels, Bruges and Ghent. Here we take a deeper look into the cultural and emotional aspect of the country.

My Favorite Hotel In Belgium:

Hotel Made In Louise:
Made In Louise is a boutique hotel in a historic early 20th century building on a quiet street. It is where grace and charm are a way of life. It is close to all the attractions and the staff is incredibly helpful and kind. I felt as if I was staying with family. I loved working from my cozy room with a beautiful view of the garden. Discover this unique and relaxing environment.

I’m wearing our Mystery leggings, Grace leggings and Passion leggings.

Amsterdam: Self Expression

Amsterdam was the first stop on my 6 week tour through Europe. Picturesque canals, world-class museums and amazing restaurants. Amsterdam is one destination that combines a little bit of everything. Biking in this city was on my bucket list and “I did it”. It was also one of the scariest experiences of my life. There are thousands of speed bikers, cars and metros all needing to get somewhere. It’s a must do but please proceed with caution 😉 . Below is a list of everything I did and highly recommend:

The Student Hotel Amsterdam:
I had the most amazing stay at this hotel. They have everything from an espresso machine in your room to a Ted Talk space downtown stairs. This hotel also features amazing art and a trendy restaurant/ bar. It is a great space for artists and anyone needing some inspiration.They also have bikes you can rent and it’s close to everything.

Heineken Experience:
Wow…this was incredible. It was an interactive tour through Heineken’s history in their former brewery. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly and very funny. We had a beer and cheese pairing in a quaint private room. If you’re in Amsterdam you have to see this at least once!  It was informative and I learned a lot about the history of the company.  The beauty of this tour is how interactive it is- the pouring your own pint, designing your own bottle, green screen photo opportunities and interactive games. This is a must do.

Van Gogh Museum:
I believe we are all artists in our own way and therefore, we should all visit the Vincent Van Gogh Museum. You can rent a portable guide that beautifully explains the life, love and evolution of Van Gogh’s work. What a wonderful character.

Anne Frank:
The Anne Frank house is a must see while in Amsterdam. She was a young woman that made such a big impact on the world. This is a great reminder of the evil that exists in the world and still proceeds today. We need to end genocide around the world.

I’m wearing our True Nature Sweater , Intuition Crop Tank and Simplicity Legging.

The Undiscovered Croatia

“Don’t fill your life with days. Fill your days with life.”

On October 7th I received an unexpected email inviting me on a tour through Croatia. They told me I would have to leave in less than a week. I didn’t think twice. I responded, “I’m in”. For years Croatia had been a country I had wanted to visit but I had no idea how magical this experience was going to be.

Croatia Full of Life tourism company explained that this trip was not going to be the usual coastal tourist attractions. Instead, we were going to see the “Undiscovered Croatia”. Places that are visited by locals but undiscovered by tourists. I truly believe every traveler should visit a few undiscovered spots in every place they visit. It is when you venture into uncharted territory you really discover yourself and others. That is what this trip became. A journey of self discovery through the joy of nature, wine, food and people.

The first day we visited Papuk Nature Park. Papuk is the largest mountain in the Slavonia region in eastern Croatia, near the city of Požega. Obsessed with healing crystals, I was delighted to discover this was also a Geo park. Stones is the park are over 400 million years old. We hiked to the most beautiful water fall and I was able to connect more deeply with my true nature. It was at this nature park that I felt an immense about of peace and gratitude for all the beauty that surrounded me. I hadn’t felt that kind of emotional high in a long time.

After our hike, it was vino time! When in Croatia do as the Croatians do. We went to one of the oldest wineries in the country, Kutjevo WineryFounded in 1232, we tasted wine in their oldest underground wine cellar. They produce 5 million liters of wine every year. I love their Graševina white wine. Graševina is a famous white wine from this area. They call it their Italian Riesling. Our tour guide told us, legend has it that Ruling Queen, Maria Theresa, spent a year in this cellar drinking wine with a handsome soldier. 😉

We visited the open market in Osijek. Farmer’s markets in Croatia are a must. They are famous for their paprika, lavender oil, salts, etc. I ended up buying a pumpkin from this sweet old woman #suckerforcuteoldladies.

Our last day was a bit of an emotional one. We were taken to the town of Vukovar (boarder of Croatia and Serbia) were we learned the horror of the 1990s war between Croatia and Serbia. We visited the bombed hospital and bombed water tower. The people of Croatia had been so hospitable, warm and kind. I felt I had made a friend everywhere we visited. Hearing about the hell these beautiful people went through was a good reminder of how important it is to lead with our hearts, not our egos.

Here are some other highlights from my trip:

This is what happens after a private wine tasting…lol! Don’t think anyone has done yoga poses here before. At Vina Belje winery in the Croatian Danube region. This is the old cellar that was occupied by the ottomans in 1526. They also specialize in Graševina white wine. The soil in this region is full of minerals and this wine embodies that.

Principovac, Iločki Podrumi: Once owned by Italian nobility this majestic winery overlooks the Danube River and the boarder of Serbia. Those Italians knew how to pick a good spot. The vastness of the Croatian sky overlooking all this land makes me feel like a little princess.

One morning I woke up early and went for a run by one of the most historical rivers in the world, the Danube. Later that day, we took a boat ride.

I am so grateful for my experience is this beautiful country. The people are warm, the food and wine are delicious, the natural beauty is spectacular and the history is rich. If you are planning a trip, put Croatia on the list and visit some of their undiscovered places. I recommend contacting Croatia Full Of Life for information on travel destinations.  Croatia has something for everyone. Remember, “Don’t fill your life with days. Fill your days with life”.
