I am obsessed with using Pinterest to find the most beautiful of things and amazing ideas but recently, I have used it to find some amazing places in this world that I would love to visit. When you search places into Google, you tend to get the normal touristy areas of countries around the world but I didn’t want to see the Eiffel Tower or the Great Wall of China pop up… I wanted to discover something different, which is why I turned to Pinterest. I have been to a few places in this country because of my searching and pinning. For example, I was planning a mini getaway to the Cotswolds and wanted to know where to visit and a place called Bourton-on-the-water popped up so I decided to go. This little town not only had the BEST bakeries and cafés but also had a stunning river running through the middle of the town. It was probably the most picturesque place I have ever been to in this country and I would adore to go back. After discovering that little hidden gem, I knew there was more to find. I would like to share 5 little hidden gems that I have discovered using Pinterest that I would love to visit:
1. The umbrella street in Agueda, Spain.
I saw this picture a while ago and have wanted to visit ever since. I am actually very lucky that I live quite close to Liverpool because they are doing something very similar at the moment in the city centre and I managed to get there only last week. The colours are beautiful – especially with a bright blue sky. The Spanish street is a lot longer than the one in Liverpool and the umbrellas look a lot lower so I think that the spectacle would be even better there and I would adore to visit!
2. Monserrat, Barcelona.
I visited Barcelona in March and I was desperate to go up the Monserrat mountain but we didn’t manage to. The views that you must be able to see from the top of that mountain but be incredible and I would love to see them for myself.
3. The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, Milan.
This picture is actually of a shopping centre. I can’t believe it either. The architecture and paintings covering this place look incredible in a picture, I can’t even imagine how much better it would be in person. I have also seen pictures of the glass roof of this building lit up with loads of mini lights to make them look like stars and it took my breathe away. I believe it was for the Christmas market. I have to visit!
4. Jerez de la Frontera, Andalucia, Spain.
Can you imagine the blog pictures you could get here? No matter what, you would capture an amazing picture. I just adore streets that decorate the ceilings of streets. Whether it’s obviously man made like with umbrellas or allowing trees to grow over the tops of their streets as if they naturally did it, it still looks amazing.
5. Sunflower fields in Tuscany, Italy.
I know for a fact that my Mum would just be happy sat in the middle of this field. Look how magical it looks. If there was a way to just have afternoon tea at a table in the middle of this field then I would be on a plane right now so I could be a very happy girl. It looks very peaceful and that is just what I want in a holiday.
And there are 5 hidden gems I have managed to find on Pinterest. I hope that I get to see them all and I will try my best to. I hope you have enjoyed reading this post and have a lovely day!
