🥇 The tradition of Cerreto Guidi (Florence) by @silviared945

Fortunately, this morning I managed to make this post because I want to share with you a tradition that takes place every year in Tuscany. It is a very special event, the "infiorata" of Cerreto Guidi. A charming village near Florence, where you can also visit the magnificent Villa dei Medici, which I highly recommend. Every year, this community celebrates this tradition with an "infiorata" that extends through the streets of the village. I had the privilege of participating in last year's edition, and now I want to share with you the photos I took during that wonderful occasion. The streets transformed into a sea of colors and scents, with flower petals creating beautiful designs and compositions. It was an unforgettable experience, immersed in the beauty of nature and human creativity. I hope these photos can convey at least part of the magical atmosphere that is experienced during the "infiorata" of Cerreto Guidi.

🥈 Travel with LightCaptured - Iceland Highlights, with 40 photos by @lightcaptured

Not long ago I spent some quality time with my dear friends who also love to travel and check out new beautiful places. We shared memories and info about different European destinations and it came out they are planning to go to Iceland. They asked me for advice on what could be seen and experienced in a week or less. So I decided to put all that plus some tips and some DOs and DONTs into this post so it may be useful or enjoyable for other travelers too. By the way, if you've been to Iceland and want to share something interesting, don't hesitate and drop a comment below.

🥉 The First Unlocked Adventure of the Month: Exploring and Discovering the Fantastic Banghitawan Falls by @naymhapz

Hello, dear Hivers! We were exhilarated to rise upon seeing Mr. Sun appearing brightly. The moderate weather indicated goodness to travel, a perfect time to unlock another adventure and discover one more beautiful spot that nature offers us. I was invited by my close high school friend to have a weekend escapade to distress ourselves from swamped weekdays due to paperwork. Our itinerary this time will not be beaching, not strolling at the mall, and of course, we will not be dining in the elegant restaurant as it's not payday yet we are still out of budget. And who was excited? As always my travel buddy, Rixie Mae. Where will this trip go actually? Well then, this adventure goes to the very hidden paradisiacal beauty of Manghitawan Falls of Busogon, San Remigio, Cebu. In this blog, I'm going to share our 5 hours strenuous journey and be amused by the fascinating view of nature. I never expected this to happen. This was our first to be trekking between the two huge mountains together with my 8-year child only.
