Berlin Photo Diaries

Berlin Photo Diaries

Unpopular opinion: I do not like Berlin. My friends always rave about Berlin. The parties, the art, the culture and overall vibe of the city earn their praises. They asked me how on earth it was possible that I had been to nearly every city in Europe, but not Berlin. The truth is that Berlin never appealed to me. And that feeling hasn’t changed after visiting. It could have been the rain, a lack of planning or the fact that it was late Winter when we visited, but this trip left me feeling less than satisfied. I didn&…

2019 Travel Year in Review

2019 Travel Year in Review

2018 was a good travel year. I jetted off somewhere almost every month and even found myself on a different continent in December. For a long time it looked like 2019 was going to be a slow travel year for me. By August I had “only” spend one week in Poland and went on one girl’s weekend in The Netherlands. And then all of a sudden things started moving rapidly. In 2019 I traveled to 8 different countries and 15 cities on a total of 7 different journeys. 3 of those countries and 13 of those cities were new to…

18 Things To Do In Porto

18 Things To Do In Porto

O Porto, Porto, where do I even begin Porto? I traveled to a lot of cities in the last 10 years, but not one has felt so homely as Porto. There was something about it that made me feel as if I was walking the streets of Antwerp, my home. Was it the small, but vibrant city center? The Duoro river waterfront? The cathedral? Or simply too much port wine? Fact is, I rarely enjoyed a city as much as I did Porto. My friends and I stayed in the city one glorious autumn weekend before travelling onward to the…

6-day Tenerife Road Trip (Part II)

READ PART 1 HERE On popular request I have moved our Tenerife Road Trip Part 2 to the front row of my editorial calendar. To be honest, I was dreading the amount of photos that needed to be edited for this, haha. But what better to do on a rainy winters day than look at photos from a sunny vacation huh? Oh wait, it wasn’t that sunny… . The second part of our road trip was rather cloudy and even rainy! You’ll see in the photos that the weather changed quite a lot and really fast. Some of …

Aachen Christmas Market

Aachen Christmas Market

How’s that for the world’s least inspiring blog post title? Pretty great, I’d say. Truth be told, I was nowhere near a German Christmas Market this year. Helsinki? Yes. Tallinn? Also yes. But Germany? No. Don’t be fooled by the ‘2019’ on the gluhwein cups. It really was 2018. These photos are from last year when we spend the whole two and a half hours in Aachen before fleeing the scene because it was just too crowded to be enjoyable. I didn’t feel like I had enough ‘content’ …

6-day Tenerife Road Trip (Part I)

6-day Tenerife Road Trip (Part I)

Tenerife. To most people that means 320 sunny days a year, yellow sand beaches and all-inclusive resorts as far as the eye can see. I’m going to give you none of that. Instead, I am going to show you sides of Tenerife you never knew about. If eerie mist, black beaches and breathtaking mountain views sound good to you, than you might want to read along. It’s going to be good, I promise. Since I always talk too much and am an avid photographer, I have to split this travel guide into two posts. In today’…
