Tourist in my own country | Volendam

•••
Volendam is a town in the province 'Noord-Holland' and is known for the high number of tourists who come to check this town out every single year. It's a fishers town where you can really enjoy the original Dutch 'feeling' because of the long forgotten original costumes, the fish stands, the 'poffertjes' stands, the 'stroopwafel' stands, the cheese factory, [...]

Get lost in Lisbon: my week in this beautiful city

•••
I love to travel, a lot, so me going on another trip was inevitable. I travelled to Portugal’s beautiful capital, Lisbon! This time, with my boyfriend, some sort of a romantic get away for two you can say. But even if you are planning on spending time in Lisbon with a group of friends or family, it is a welcoming, beautiful city either way. Last time I went[...]

Malaga, ciudad genial!

Malaga City is one of the Spanish cities that grew the most in the last few years. Málaga is the capital of the province that has the same name, located in the Spanish south region called Andalusia. The place is also known as “Costa del Sol” or the Sunny Coast, as in Malaga you can find 300 sunshine days per year! Beautiful beach towns as Marbella, Benalmáde[...]

Budapest Hotspots

•••
Afgelopen zomer ben ik voor de derde keer in Budapest geweest. De hoofdstad van Hongarije. De stad waar de rivier de Donau dwars doorheen loopt en Buda en Pest ruw scheidt. Een geweldige stad, met een mooie geschiedenis, veel culturele highlights en architectonische bouwwerken. Die laat ik voor nu even achterwege. Waarom? Omdat Budapest ook hip & happeni[...]

We're going to Destino

In augustus ben ik voor de eerste keer naar Ibiza (Eivissa is Catalaans) geweest. Het was echt FANTASTISCH. Zoals iedereen zegt, ik ga terug! En als het van mij afhangt, zien ze mij volgend jaar weer! De people, de vibe, het weer, de leuke plekjes! Alles was perfect! Het stond samen met enkel vrienden al een heel tijdje op onze bucketlist en dit jaar hebben[...]

Ile d'Yeu, France - A gorgeous place to be

•••
On the 18th of August I turned (the big) 21!! Reason enough to take a couple of days to explore some parts of France that I didn't know yet. My beloved boyfriend took me to a small island called Ile d'Yeu. You can take the boat from a small town on the mainland called Fromentine or... your man is the sweetest on the planet and takes you by helicopter!! -Talk[...]

Tarifa, Kitesurf Mecca

•••
Tarifa, ah Tarifa! One of the most consistent and powerful kitesurf spots in the world! Located just there in the southwest corner of Spain, in the province of Cadiz, Andalucia, in the entrance of the strait of Gilbraltar. It’s possible to see our beloved Morocco from there, as it is only 14 km away. As I’m living in Malaga, just 150km away, it’s just my pre[...]
