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 “My top 5 highlights to see in beautiful Edinburgh”

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?”

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!
