A Day In Domburg

A Day In Domburg

When my parents bought a caravan in The Netherlands two years ago I started a small blog series about the Zeeland region. After Middelburg, Yerseke and Veere it was time to explore Domburg this weekend. The weather had been really nice up until the day my mom, youngest sister and I left for our short getaway. No clouds or wind could stop us – something about pancakes for lunch – and we went for a walk around town and on the beach anyway. I left my camera at home and instead took an Instagram-like picture of every little thing we&…

Flowering Bluebells In Hallerbos

Flowering Bluebells In Hallerbos

Years and years ago I made a bucket list of all the places I wanted to visit in Belgium. To this day, not many items have been scratched off, aside from exploring Brussels (which I’ve been doing lots of lately!). Not too far from Brussels is Halle, well-known for it’s beautiful Hallerbos. The Hallerbos is a forest that turns into a fairy tale-like scene every Spring. Shades of white and yellow slowly turn into shades of purple as daffodils and white anemones make way for a sea of blooming bluebells. The gentle perfume they spread is …

Shopping and eating in Barcelona

Shopping and eating in Barcelona

Oh Barcelona! To celebrate his 25th birthday K flew me over to Barcelona (as his gift for my own upcoming birthday) where he was staying for a job training. He put me in charge of making the travel plan as we’d only have 24 hours of free time together (and I had 8 extra hours on my own). With a little help from my friends I made said travel plan, which ultimately became a shortlist of places I wanted to get food from. We threw in the Sagrada Família and Parc Güell at the end of …

The Weinachtsmarkt in Monschau

The Weinachtsmarkt in Monschau

The German Christmas markets (or weinachtsmarkten) are my favorite. Every year we try to visit a German town around Christmas to do a little shopping and enjoy the Holiday cheer. You can read about my visits to Düsseldorf here and here. This year we went to Monschau for the first time with friends and I’ve taken a few photos to share with you! Monschau is a quaint little town hidden away in a valley. It’s just a few kilometers across the Belgian border and you have to drive straight through the Hoge Venen to …

5 hours in Amsterdam

5 hours in Amsterdam

On Monday I promised to share a mini-post about our mini-trip to Amsterdam. I got sick and spent most of Monday and Tuesday in bed fighting the flu. My fever is gone now and I’m left with a nasty cold, but that won’t stop me from returning to my blog. It’s been a while. K shared the Amsterdam lights festival on Facebook and asked me if I wanted to come with her. As if she really had to ask! We left in the early afternoon on Saturday and took the 2 hour drive up north, …

Jardin de Luxembourg in the fall

Jardin de Luxembourg in the fall

  It has been almost a year since I last went to Paris. A whole year. These last 365 days have gone by faster than any time in my life and it doesn’t feel like time is slowing down. I never got around to post about all about our trip to Paris. Things happened shortly after and I disappeared from my blog for a while. I’m still not fully back into my old blogging routine, but now that fall is here again it feels right to share the photos I have been wanting to share since last …
