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”

Rotterdam – What a city!

Hey there! Today I am writing about my experience with Rotterdam, the city that I live in since May and will leave in two weeks. I grew up in the northern part of the Netherlands and studied in Groningen, so it was quite a big step for me to move to the ‘Randstad’ as we call in here (The western, more populated part of the Netherlands). I decided to move here because Groningen was great as a student city, but it didn’t have much to offer jobwise. Because of this, many students move away to the bigger cities. As I also thought it would be time for a change, I started looking for jobs further away. Then I found a really nice marketing internship at a travel agency. As I’ve always loved travelling and I didn’t have any relevant working experience yet, I decided this opportunity was a good way to start my professional career!

I’m working on myself, for myself, by myself

At this moment I only have about 2 weeks left in Rotterdam, before I will start my newest adventure: moving to Utrecht! However, this adventure is still quite uncertain. The past few months were really nice for getting to know how a company runs, get more experience, learn new things and getting to know a whole new city. Continue reading “Rotterdam – What a city!”

My top 10 cities to visit in Europe: Hidden treasures

Today at work we were talking about citytrips in Europe that might be nice to make. Ofcourse we all know the common cities that are great to visit like Paris, Rome, London, Barcelona, Berlin and Amsterdam. However, there are many beautiful cities out there which are relatively undiscovered. I travelled quite a lot through Europe and have come to see many amazing places, however there are still plenty on my bucketlist. So here I will share with you a top 10 of citytrips that I can recommend you to make when visiting Europe (some of which I have already visited and some that I still really want to).

1.Fira, Greece

thiraAs I’m a complete Greece-lover, I had to put a city in Greece on the first place. Ofcourse Fira isn’t a city for a regular citytrip, because the city is a lot smaller than all the other ones. However, this is a city that has really stole my heart. Fira is located on the island of Santorini, which is completely made of vulcanic stone. The picturesque white houses with blue details are incredibly beautiful and something that you won’t see anywhere else. Furthermore, you will be able to see the most beautiful sunsets you have ever seen!

Vive la France!

Last week I’ve travelled to Normandy, France with 3 other friends to visit a friend that was working there at a camping. We rented a car to make an 11-hour drive to get there, everything went pretty well and we really had a happy moment when crossing the Pont du Normany, tomorrowland music was playing on the radio so we had a great party in the car!

We were able to stay in the mobile home of my friend, which was pretty nice because the weather wasn’t too good the first 2 days. I loved my time there, cause it was an ideal place to relax and not worry about the things back home (no good Wi-Fi too). It was a holiday were we kindof acted like old people cause what we mostly did was reading, walking, visiting cute towns, taking naps and we even played bingo! But what I mostly enjoyed is was that it reminded me of the amazing holidays i’ve had with my parents and brother while growing up… Continue reading “Vive la France!”
