How to deal with rainy summers

Summer in the Netherlands is awful. Over the last few weeks it’s just have been rain & clouds, at night its around 10 degrees. How can people even call this summer? I personally really need to spend quite some time outside to feel happy. So not being able to do that because of the rain can make you feel a little depressed.. To make sure this doesn’t happen, I will share with you some tips to still get that summer vibe and feel good! Of course I would recommend you to book a holiday and find the sun, but as this isn’t possible for everyone, these tips are meant for people who are staying home :) Continue reading “How to deal with rainy summers”

Summer holiday shopping haul: Bonaire!

As the countdown on my site indicates: It’s almost time for my holiday! This Friday I will fly to Bonaire (an island of the Dutch Antilles) with my friend Lisa, whoehoeee! I’m super excited and we are looking forward to it for weeks :D It will be my second destination outside of Europe (first was New York!), so I’m really excited to see how much it will differ from what I know and to see if it is worth the higher price and long flight :) Continue reading “Summer holiday shopping haul: Bonaire!”

Why every student should join a student asociation

Traveling to Germany by bus: My Flixbus experience

Last weekend I went to visit a good friend of mine who lives in Germany, Darmstadt. I want to share my experience of this trip and the means of transportation. I’ve visited her before by car, but this time I wanted to take public transport. As train prices from Utrecht to Frankfurt where almost just as expensive as plane tickets, I decided to check out possibilities for a bus drive. As I didn’t mind about a few hours of traveling longer (6 hours by bus or 4 hours by train, it’s quite a long trip anyway), I decided to book bus tickets with Flixbus, which were very reasonably priced!

Dublin Citytrip!

As I’ve studied in Ireland, I’ve come to get to know the country quite well. I’ve gone back after my studies for a roadtrip with my parents and two weeks ago I went back again with friends! Ofcourse I was super excited, cause going to Ireland feels like coming back home :) This time it was not to go back to Galway (where I studied) or to explore new places. It was just for a citytrip to Dublin! Ryanair had a nice price promotion (as you might know, I love finding good deals!), departing from a new airport: Amsterdam! Continue reading “Dublin Citytrip!”
