A Visit to The Zwin, Belgium

A Visit to The Zwin, Belgium

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 been wanting to visit for many years. Following the …

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 Europe. I’m not a history teacher, so I’m going …

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 friends to get into the Christmas spirit. Living …

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 to say about CPH because I had never been there myself. About five minutes …
