Gdańsk Foodie Diaries

Gdańsk Foodie Diaries

It’s been a while since I wrote about our trip to Gdańsk, but I just realized I forgot to share my food diary with you all! The harbor city was my first acquaintance with Poland and to say that it made a good first impression on me would be an understatement. Next to some of the most entertaining museums I have ever visited and an absolutely beautiful historic city center, the cities food scene also blew me away.  Fun places to have …

London photo diaries

London photo diaries

Now that the Royal Wedding is still hot and happening, I thought it was a good time to finally share my photos from London! You might spot the pretty fall foliage, which gives away that I visited London some months ago now. It was a glorious weekend in October, so we enjoyed nice long walks through South Kensington and the Kensington Gardens. We discovered some lovely breakfast and lunch spots and tried some of the best coffee bars around the Aldgate area. I spend about&…

A Visit To Zwin Nature Park

A Visit To Zwin Nature Park

On a cold morning in February, my boyfriend an I decided to drive to the Belgian sea side for a day. We never go to the sea side. There’s nothing to do when it rains and it’s bustling with tourists as soon as the sun decides to peek from behind the clouds. Add to that the infamous Belgian traffic and you get a recipe for “nah, let’s just go somewhere else”. However, there’s a nature reserve near Knokke that I had …

Gdańsk and I, A Love Story

Gdańsk and I, A Love Story

I can hear you going “G-what“? Gdańsk is a harbor city the North of Poland and a relatively new tourist destination. Most people who pass through Poland will stop at Warsaw or Krakow and an odd few visit Poznan as well. Gdańsk is still a bit the odd man out. The city is unknown to many Millenials, which is a sad given since Gdańsk was the scene of an enormous social revolution that has set the tone for modern day living in …

Visiting The Christmas Market In Monschau

Visiting The Christmas Market In Monschau

Of all the Christmas markets in the world, German weihnachtsmärkten are simply the best. From late November to just before Christmas Day many German towns turn into picture-perfect fairy tale wonderlands. With food stalls selling glühwein, reibekuchen and Brätwursten à volonté, you know you’re in for a feast. And even if you’re not into the German cuisine, nothing quite beats the coziness of German towns around Christmas time. The weekend before Christmas we drove down to Germany with a group of …

A Four Day Itenerary For Copenhagen

A Four Day Itenerary For Copenhagen

Copenhagen happened by accident. I know, I know. How do you accidentally board an airplane to Denmark? But you have to believe me. One moment I was in rainy ole Belgium, the next I was in freezing ole Denmark. It all started when my friend B, who I went to elementary school with, asked for advice for her solo city trip. I think she was doubting between Dublin, Barcelona and Copenhagen and needed help deciding. I shared what I knew, but didn’t have much …

Tips & Things To Do In Edinburgh

Tips & Things To Do In Edinburgh

At the end of 2016 it became pretty clear that 2017 would be my biggest year so far when it comes to travelling. I had only just returned from my Caribbean cruise adventure and my next three holidays were already booked. The first destination for the new year? SCOTLAND! Edinburgh really stole our hearts the first time we visited. I’m not sure whether it was the charming cityscapes, the equally charming residents or the darn good pub food, it was clear that we’d be coming&…

New York, New York

New York, New York

Day 1: Williamsburg, Maman Coffee & The Daily Show From the tropical rainforest straight to the concrete jungle where dreams are made of. Or as I mostly saw it: from 30°C straight to -5. New York welcomed us into its ice cold arms, just the way it did when we first visited all the way back in 2012. Started our days in NYC the only way I know how: with coffee! Toby’s Estate is a specialty coffee roaster and bar located in the heart of Williamsburg.&…

Hipster guide to Cozumel, Mexico

Hipster guide to Cozumel, Mexico

Mexico, land of taco’s and Tequila, was the very last stop before our ship returned to Miami. I hadn’t read up on the city and from what I knew it was a shopping place for tourists. Playa del Carmen and Tulum aren’t far off, so I was expecting Cozumel to be buzzing with people. In reality, Cozumel was the most peaceful and calm place we visited and quite possibly the most colorful too. Let’s take a tour! The cruise terminal was …

La Pura Vida in Puerto Limòn, Costa Rica

La Pura Vida in Puerto Limòn, Costa Rica

Puerto Limòn was one of my favorite stops during our MSC Cruise. Known as the land of Sloths, bananas and coffee I should have know even before docking into the port that this day was going to be a good one! “First things first!” we thought and we went off to explore the city center. It’s a very small town that you can easily cover on foot in just a few short hours. First we walked through the busy shopping streets and then …
