How to spend a week in the beautiful region of Lombardy in Italy

How to spend a week in the beautiful region of Lombardy in Italy2019 flew by so fast but I had time for one last trip to the beautiful region of Lombardy in Italy. We landed in Milan, the capital of the region. But although this city is really beautiful we decided to skip it this time. After all, Lombardy has so much more to offer, it would be a shame not to go outside of the city. In fact, there is a lot to experience in Lombardy, from visiting a violin maker’s workshop to doing a snowshoe hike in the mountains near Gerola Alta. I’m going to tell you all on how to spend a week in Lombardy.

Villa Delisle Hotel & Spa: post-colonial charm in the heart of Saint-Pierre, La Réunion

In June I went on holiday to La Réunion, and because I wanted to see the entire island, I needed a place to stay in the south of the island. This way, I could use that hotel as a starting point to explore the entire southern part of La Réunion! I found my paradise within paradise at Villa Delisle in Saint-Pierre, the largest town in the southern part of La Réunion. I must say I really enjoyed this intimate hotel with modern facilities and Creole interiors. Read along to find out why.

All you need to know about taking the ferry to Gozo

As you might have seen on my Instagram, I spent a couple of days in Gozo, Malta’s second largest island. Gozo is a popular day trip destination to escape the busy atmosphere of the Malta’s main island. There’s only one way of getting there: taking the ferry. Whether you’re going for a day trip or stay for a couple of days like me, here’s all you need to know about the ferry to Gozo island.

My favorite attractions in Gozo

Last may I got to spend a few days in Gozo. I skipped Malta for the most part and headed straight to Gozo. Most people only go to Gozo for a day trip, as it’s only a short ferry transfer away. I spent four days in Gozo but could have easily stayed a couple days more without feeling bored. Heck, dare I say I would stay in Gozo and do a day trip to Malta instead of the other way around? Continue reading to see which are my favorite free attractions and things to see in Gozo.

Poland /

Back in Poland to visit Tri-city: Gdańsk, Gdynia and Sopot

Last month I checked another Polish city off my list. Having been almost everywhere in Poland, from Wroclaw to Lublin and many more, this vast country doesn’t have many secrets for me anymore. However there was one area that was still a blank spot on my map: Pomerania and its capital Gdansk. As it turns out, Gdansk is actually part of a larger metropolitan area consisting of three cities: Gdansk, Sopot and Gdynia. This means there’s three times as much to do than I initially expected! Read along to learn more about this interesting Polish region.

Exploring a surprising side of the Dominican Republic

Last month I found myself on a trip in the beautiful Dominican Republic. I had been to the Caribbean many times over the last couple of years. However somehow, I had always skipped the Dominican Republic. Honestly? I thought it was going to be too touristy for me. I didn’t want to sit in an all-inclusive resort for 14 days not to see anything of the country. But when the tourism board of the Dominican Republic invited me over, I thought I gave it a try. Spoiler alert: it did not disappoint!

I rented a self-drive boat from Nicols in the Netherlands

Last week I checked yet another thing off my bucket list: being the captain of my own boat for a few days. And the best thing was, I drove it myself and I didn’t need a permit for it! Me and a few others teamed up with Nicols, a company that is providing boating holidays for which you don’t need a license. They’re quite active in France, Germany and Portugal, but since April 2019 you can now rent their boats in Kerkdriel, the Netherlands. And that’s exactly what a group of friends and I did. Read along to find out why renting a boat from Nicols in the Netherlands was one of the coolest experiences I’ve ever done!

South Tyrol /

Back in South Tyrol for some winter fun!

When I was invited again to visit South Tyrol for the second time, I was beyond stoked. Last summer, I visited Italy’s northernmost province for the first time and it turned out to be one of the best trips I did that year. This time, in March, I was going to experience what it looked like during winter. So I hopped on a plane from Brussels to Venice, suitcase packed with winter clothes and ski attire. Eindhoven to Innsbruck is an option too. You could then rent a car to cross the border, but we opted for Venice. During the 3 hour drive to South Tyrol, you can see the surroundings change from Mediterranean landscapes into Alpine peaks, a real joy to experience along the way.

Cruising the Wild Atlantic Way from Downpatrick Head to the Great Pollet Sea Arch

Ireland. I’ve always wanted to experience for myself what life is like over there. Ever since I saw pictures as a kid I’ve been dreaming of driving along the Wild Atlantic Way when I grew up.

I drove the Wild Atlantic Way in the northwest of Ireland, al the way from Downpatrick Head to the Great Pollet Sea Arch.
