Spain

Spain holds a warm place in my heart, having lived in Palma de Mallorca for an entire summer, I can’t recommend the island enough as one of the best weekend trips in Europe. Advertisements

Poland

As an exchange student in 2009 I lived for 6 months in Krakow, probably one of the best cities to live in as an international student. The city itself is lively, and supposedly has the most bars and restaurants per square kilometers in Europe! Warsaw on the other hand is the business and political heart…

United Kingdom

For the second time around I am living in the UK. Initially, I was here only three months for work, back in 2012, but since 2015 I have taken up permanent residency in the UK capital. Since then, we have been trying both London and the UK country side, through a variety of road trips….

The Netherlands

Although my home country I haven’t lived in the Netherlands for close to 10 years now. That doesn’t mean that I don’t like the country of course!

Italy

Although I have been in Italy several times when I was younger, I had’t really visited the country in the last couple of years. In the summer of 2017 I went on a road trip through Tuscany, and the articles from this trip are below.

Germany

I lived for two years in Berlin and can safely say it is one of my favorite cities I’ve ever lived in. Below an overview of all articles to date in Germany.  

Wine tasting in Valpolicella

We decided to start our Tuscany road trip (really an excuse to eat and drink our way through Italy) in the Valpolicella region, slightly north of Verona.

La dolce vita – Road trip through Tuscany

At the end of summer we still had a few holidays left, and decided to combine a family visit in Switzerland with a road trip through Italy, a country we hadn’t visited yet together. We flew into Basel airport, and had a rental car reservation on the French side of the airport, as this was…

Pretty much every Thailand island have their individual claim to fame: Koh Phi-Phi: amazing beaches, Koh Phangan: full moon party, Koh Tao: diving. The island is known as THE place to get your dive certification in Thailand as it is a. cheap and b. easy waters for beginners c. a beautiful island with a relaxed…

In search of the best coffee in Guatemala

I am quite a coffee freak and the day hasn’t started properly without my morning coffee. Although I love coffee, I was never too interested where coffee actually came from. whilst staying in Antigua Guatemala we drank loads of absolutely amazing coffee and it turned out it was actually produced locally. After doing some research…

Diving Sipadan

If you ask a diver what is on their diving bucket list and chances are Sipadan is right on the top. Long haled as one of the best diving destinations in the world, I simply had to try it out on my trip through Borneo. It is famed for its steep wall, dropping 600 meters…
