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 “Which city is nicer to visit, Ghent or Bruges?”

Preventing FOMO: The Fear Of Missing Out

Today, I want to talk about FOMO, it stands for the Fear Of Missing Out. It basically means that you constantly have the urge to be at all popular events or friend hangouts, that when you skipped something, you might have missed something great. It may sound like a lame term, as the next YOLO or something, but it actually has some meaning to it. I personally don’t have this fear, but I do feel like it’s easy to get caught up in it. In today’s world, there are so many temptations for people to do, to visit and to see. Facebook is full of pictures of people travelling the world and festival events are popping up like mushrooms! It’s often difficult to deal with the pressure of attending social gatherings, especially when each gathering is a lot of fun! Continue reading “Preventing FOMO: The Fear Of Missing Out”

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!”

Walking through the Dutch Countryside

With spring at our doorstep, temperatures rising and flowers starting to bloom, I’m getting super excited to get outside more! And what better way to spend your time outside is by getting into the nature! I’ve come to appreciate nature so much more over the past few years, when I was younger I never wanted to go into the woods, while now I really love it! I feel like it started when I was in Ireland, because it’s perfect to go hiking there (more on Ireland here). Luckily, there are many beautiful opportunities for walking in the Netherlands as well!
