Ireland: 7 Reasons You Should Visit This Beautiful Country!

Ireland had been on my bucket list for a long time… There was just something about the country that really made me want to visit this gorgeous island. Actually, the Irish accent alone was reason enough for me to plan a trip, I think it’s the nicest English accent in the world. Well, perhaps it’s a tie with Scottish?. Anyway,…

Exploring Ireland By Campervan: 5 Day Road Trip Itinerary

Every year my husband and I take a trip for our wedding anniversary. Usually we take a city trip, so far we’ve visited Rome, London, Antwerp and Prague. The 5th year we didn’t go away for a weekend but went on a 5 month trip to New Zealand and Southeast Asia instead. Last year we went to Paris, but that…

Vrboska, An Enchanting Fishing Village In Croatia

I spent a wonderful week sailing around Croatia with my family. The Central Dalmatian Archipelago truly impressed me, the landscapes were amazing and the Croatian people very welcoming. However, I was particularly awestruck by the picture-perfect villages on the islands Hvar, Vis and Brač. I visited several stunning towns but I am still having a hard time choosing which village…

1 Week Sailing Trip In Croatia: A Budget Breakdown

I’ll be honest about it: sailing in Croatia isn’t cheap. However, you don’t have to be a millionaire to hire your own boat and set sail for unknown destinations! Sure, costs are higher than backpacking around Southeast Asia. And probably also more expensive than backpacking around East Europe, though I have no personal reference as I haven’t done that (yet;-). That being…

Stari Grad, the most beautiful town in Croatia (and possibly the world)

The east part of Europe is an area where I have not traveled much (yet;-). Besides a weekend in Prague and a week on Crete, I’ve only been to Croatia. But I am planning to change that, because the villages I visited during my 1 week sailing trip in the Central Dalmatian Archipelago were absolutely gorgeous. And really old too!…

A 1 Week Sailing Trip In Croatia: Exploring Hvar, Vis, Biševo and Brač

Growing up in the Netherlands, county of water, it’s no surprise I like water sports. I love diving, snorkeling, surfing and yes… sailing! I was lucky my parents had a boat for years, meaning I spent many weekends exploring Friesland and the ‘Waddeneilanden’. This year however, I went sailing a little further from home. In the Central Dalmatian Archipelago in…

Road Trip In Andalusia: A 3 Day Itinerary

It was a very last-minute decision to go to Andalusia. My parents invited me to join them a couple of days on their 3 week road trip around Spain and Portugal and I didn’t have to think twice about their offer. That’s how I found myself on a plane to Seville mere days after their invitation, exited to be going…

Climbing The Dom Tower In Utrecht

In 2016 I am making it my mission to explore more of my own country, the tiny but beautiful Netherlands. That’s why I wrote my ‘10 Things Every Foreigners Should Know About The Netherlands’ guest post for Aileen and an ‘Introduction to the Netherlands’. I planned on publishing this post much sooner but I have had so much trouble getting the pictures I…

25 Pretty Pictures Of Snowy Winter Wonderland

Oh snowy winter wonderland, you are gorgeous… Ever since I first stepped foot on the magical white slopes and made my way down, be it very clumsily and with lots of falling down, I have been addicted to wintersport! I love the white, snowcapped mountains and the view of snowy pines with their branches hanging down from the weight of…
