Northern Ireland: this 4 day short break makes me want to know more of you. I loved the green hilly landscape, the mountains, stunning coastline. Your biggest asset: your friendly people! Thank you so much for your warm welcome! I hope to come back!
Myanmar: a country that was not on my bucket list. When I got the chance to go, I took it took and had the most amazing trip ever.
From former capital Yangon to magical Inle Lake, from Inle Lake to mountainous Kalaw, from Kalaw to ancient kingdom Bagan and from Bagan to Mandalay.
Myanmar should be on everyone’s bucket list!
The most visited city in Greece may be Athens, the capital but the city of Thessaloniki for sure is worth a visit just a much.
Thessaloniki has so much to offer; the city is full of history, culture, art, adventure and good food. It was the perfect location for a reunion with the Full Moon girls.
Part 4 of my Cycladic adventure: Santorini, Greece!
This is the last stop in my 2 week Cyclades island hopping holiday. Santorini is probably the most touristic island, but how could it not be?! When you arrive by ferry you are in the middle of the caldera. You see the amazing cliffs and the picturesque mountain villages on top. It is a stunning sight!
Part 3 of my Cycladic adventure: Naxos, Greece!
I am halfway through my 2 week Cyclades island hopping holiday. The third stop is Naxos, which is the biggest island of this group. Naxos does not have a port for cruise ships, the airport is also limited to what can come in, but that means you will not find mass tourism here.
Naxos: if I win the lotery, I will move back to Greece and find myself a nice place to live somewhere on your west coast ;).
Part 2 of my Cycladic adventure: Paros, Greece!
I started my 2 week island hopping holiday at Mykonos. From there I took the ferry boat to Paros. I absolutely fell in love with this lovely island. I also managed to visit Anntiparos, only a 7 minute ferry boat ride away from Pounda.
Part 1 of My Cycladic adventure: Mykonos, Greece!
In 2 weeks I travel from Mykonos to Paros, from Paros to Naxos and from Naxos to Santorini. The Cyclades are like no other islands in the Mediterranean and each one has its own identity. I absolute loved being here and know I have to go back someday, because there are many islands left to discover.
Mykonos was a great place to start my journey. White churches, Little Venice, famous windmills… and more!
The Netherlands are more than Amsterdam, Windmills and dykes. Make sure you take your time to explore. In the north lie the beautiful Wadden islands. Texel is the biggest one and the easiest to reach. Nature, beaches, plenty to do and see, good food and beer: Texel has it all!
Most tourists who travel to Portugal will visit the Algarve or they go to Costa de Lisboa for a city trip to Lisbon (which I also did earlier this year)…
From mainland Malaysia, to Penang and ending in Langkawi. What a great diverse country Malaysia is!
Penang, a part of Malaysia that may not feel like Malaysia. But it is though and it is a totally different, but wonderful part of this amazing and diverse country!
I will never forget the moment I get to hear that I am going to Malaysia. The country has been on my bucket list for quite some time and now…
When I was 2 years old my parents took me and my sisters to Switzerland. Of course I do not remember anything, but when I look back at the photographs…
Ireland, the land of 40 shades of green. A country so beautiful, friendly people, a lot of culture and history, amazing landscapes and Guinness 😉
Join me on a 2 week road trip trough Eire!
Part 3 of an amazing educational trip to South Africa. Cape Town is vibrant, friendly and diverse. The Cape Peninsula is stunningly beautiful, Chapman’s Peak Drive one of the best drives in the world. A perfect ending to an incredible trip.
From Knysna to Cape Town we drive along the Garden Route, along Route 62… it is a complety different South Africa from the north part where the trip started. On this part of the journey I discover who is my partner in crime/wine and I get inspired by the good work being done in and around the townships!
It is about 3pm in the afternoon. I am sitting at my desk, booking a holiday for a client, when my boss comes out his office and asks: fancy a trip to South Africa? Are you kidding me, I ask? No, he’s not! All of a sudden I have to rush home to pack my suitcase.
Norway, famous for its fjords, mountains and waterfalls. But the country has so much more to offer, as I found out during this amazing trip in the land of trolls.
Welcome to Scotland says a big sign when we enter the border at Hadrian’s Wall. The land of the impressive highlands, haggis, bagpipes, kilts and a beautiful green scenery. Travel with me through on this short, but amazing trip to Scotland.
Vienna: a classical and baroque city that takes you back in time. But Vienna is also a city that over the last few years has become hip and trendy. To me Vienna is one big pleasant surprise!
