When I travel, I always look for one-of-a-kind places that is created, curated for a reason, a purpose - often with a bit of a history, filled with beautiful arts and books. Spring has finally sprung, I can’t wait to get out of this winter rut and thought I’d share some of my favorites around Europe for you to be inspired this Spring.
