Utrecht Cityguide: My 7 Favourite Hotspot Restaurants

I’m currently living in Utrecht for almost 2 years, and over that time I’ve really enjoyed exploring the city, finding nice places to drink and eat. Especially for young people, there are plenty of places that not only serve food for reasonable prices, but have a great atmosphere and fun vibe, and of course have very tasty food! I thought it would be nice to share some of these places, in case you are visiting the city (which you definitely should!). I’m no culinary expert, so I wouldn’t state these are the absolute best restaurants there are, but these are sure my favourite hotspots (map included)!  Continue reading

My top 5 highlights to see in beautiful Edinburgh

Right after Hogmanay (The Scottish New Year’s celebration) I visited Edinburgh and Glasgow with a friend. It was a trip I’ve been wanting to make for quite some years now. Since studying abroad in Ireland, I’ve fallen in love with Great Britain! From Ireland I saw almost the whole country as you can read in my blogpost: 12 tips for a great roadtrip through the wonderful country of Ireland. I also made a trip to Northern Ireland to visit Belfast and the amazing Giant’s Causeway. Furthermore, I’ve been to London a few times now for work and pleasure, but I never visited Scotland before. I assumed it would be similar to Ireland: Cozy pubs, beautiful landscapes and historic buildings. But I can definitely say: I liked Edinburgh better than any other city in Ireland!  Continue reading

Which city is nicer to visit, Ghent or Bruges?

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a blog. I did make a lot of drafts but couldn’t find the time and effort to finish them. But actually, I think it’s a good sign, it shows I was busy being outside of home: Exploring and doing fun things! Also last weekend, when I went away for 4 days with my lovely mom. I went to the beautiful cities Ghent and Bruges (or Gent & Brugge in Dutch) in my neighbour country Belgium. Of course, I cannot wait to share my experience with you and recommend you the best city to visit (if you have to choose!). Because ultimately, I can already give away a spoiler: I would recommend you to visit both! Continue reading

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

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
