Why you should visit the breathtaking island of Bonaire: My travel experience!

I can’t believe I’m home again, it’s already been a month.. Bonaire stole my heart! I miss the sun, the bright blue see, the beautiful animals and relaxed and friendly people.. As you can hear, I had an amazing holiday in the Dutch Antilles at the island of Bonaire, which is located in the Caribbean. It’s probably one of the least familiar islands there and somewhat smaller, with few tourists. It’s mostly known to be a divers paradise, but I can certainly say, for non-divers – like me – it’s a perfect holiday destination as well! I’d like to share with you my experience, some pictures and most importantly, some tips for you when you are thinking of visiting Bonaire! Also, the pictures at the bottom of the blog probably say it all: Bonaire is incredibly beautiful! Continue reading “Why you should visit the breathtaking island of Bonaire: My travel experience!”

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!”

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!”

12 tips for a great roadtrip through the wonderful country of Ireland

Anyone who knows me, knows my love for Ireland. Is it the the green calm landscapes? Is it the joyful Irish music? Is it the welcoming people with their awesome accents? It’s hard to say, I just get a very special feeling in this country… (and even when just thinking about it!) The biggest reason for this is that I spend my study abroad there in 2012, in the beautiful city of Galway. I really loved my time there and want to go back as often as I can. As my mom and dad couldn’t visit me when I was there, we decided to go there again so I could show them around where I lived, went to college and visit the countryside.

During my study abroad I already travelled around a lot, so I got to know some of the most beautiful spots in the country! Continue reading “12 tips for a great roadtrip through the wonderful country of Ireland”
