Europe Travel Bucket List

In collaboration with Bolsover Cruise Club I probably have mentioned it several times: Europe is my favourite continent :) This is because of its cultural heritage and immense diversity. And best of it: everything is located in close proximity. This is what makes weekend trips so easy from London. Just hop on a plane and a couple of hours later…

Berlin 

Last weekend I went on a little  trip to Berlin with 8 ladies. It started out as a friend’s work trip and then turned into a birthday weekend girls only trip :) I took a morning flight from London to Berlin and arrived just in time for checking in to our rooms. The other girls had already been drinking on…

We decided to break up the 6h way from Split to Pula by visiting the waterfalls in the Krka National Park that is located approx. 70 mins from…

The Beauty of Rainy Ghent

There is not always a ‘real’ summer in Northern & Western Europe, so sometimes you just have to do deal with rain. I personally like summer rain but only if the temperature stays hot like in tropical destinations. This generally is not the case in Europe. Quite the opposite. A rainy day usually means that it’s a good idea to…
