As you might have read in my previous post, I was back in Stockholm for a couple of days during the Easter weekend. We tried out the top 10 attractions, threw a bomb in our bath and stayed in the Stockholm’s nicest boutique hotel: Miss Clara Hotel!
Stockholm. The capital of Scandinavia. That’s what they call themselves, probably to the annoyance of people from Copenhagen, Oslo or Helsinki, I guess. But Stockholm really lives up to its name. The city is stunning and if you haven’t been there, I advise you to start making plans right away!
During the Easter weekend, I was in Stockholm for a few days. It was great to be back, I’ve been there a couple of times but hadn’t been able to return since the summer of 2015! Although the weather had been nice the days before, winter suddenly decide to come back for the Easter weekend. So… Read more »
Last week I embarked on a cruise to Western Caribbean cruise on Holland America’s Oosterdam along with my dad. Arriving the day before from Europe, we needed a one-night stay in a hotel in Tampa. A lot of popular pre-cruise hotels are located in the Rocky Point Area west of the airport, but we opted… Read more »
During our last visit to Prague my girlfriend and I stayed at the Boscolo hotel. Boscolo is a small Italian 5-star hotel chain, with hotels in Prague, Budapest, Nice, Rome, Venice and Milan. Having previously resided in Boscolo Exedra Nice and Boscolo Budapest, I had no doubt the hotel in Prague would be of the same… Read more »
Always wanted to do that Eurotrip? Just go for it! Good. That was easy! So now that you’ve decided to embark on this awesome adventure, don’t just book a plane ticket to your favorite city and rent a car. Maybe don’t rent a car at all! There are actually a few things I want to… Read more »
Mmmm, Let’s talk food, shall we? My morning routine: wake up, head straight to Emmerys. Really, Emmerys, on the corner of Klostergade and Guldsmedgade, is a great place to start your morning. You can order breakfast to go, or sit back and enjoy the quiet morning with a cup of coffee. They really focus on… Read more »
When I was in Denmark I spent a few days in Aarhus. Denmark has a total population of only 5,700,000 and a fair amount of them live in or near Copenhagen. The rest of the country is rather scarcely populated, especially compared to Belgium where I’m from. So with 330,000 inhabitants of which 264,000… Read more »
A couple of weeks ago I made an impulsive fly & drive trip to Denmark, home to several famous furniture designers. After been in Norway and Sweden numerous times, I must shamefully admit I’d never set foot in Denmark. Ever!
So it’s been a while since I’m back from Prague but boy do I miss it! If you’re a fellow European this lovely city is the perfect place for a city trip (we even spent the whole week there and could easily stay longer!). For non-Europeans, Prague is ideal to get a taste of the great… Read more »
During our trip to Prague, we made some time to head away from the busy city and visited the Zoo! It’s located outside the city centre and although you can get there by bus or even by boat plus a short walk after that, I recommend taking a taxi like we did. From our Boscolo… Read more »
Last week, me and my girlfriend visited Prague. We’d both been there as kids but didn’t remember much and we sure weren’t interested in culture back then. So we went back! During our first full day in this lovely city, we did the Prague Discovery Tour organized by Prague Urban Adventures. Our tour guide Pete… Read more »
Last week I had the honor of visiting two very impressive venues right in the heart of Brussels: Concert Noble and Bibliothèque Solvay. The venues are owned by Edificio, specialized in hosting exclusive events. Edificio provides a complete package, which means they assist you with all the organisational aspects of your event, e.g. providing audio-visual… Read more »
Apart from the iconic Palace of Culture and Science, there was another attraction I particularly enjoyed in Warsaw and it’s the Fryderyck Chopin Museum. Open from Tuesday to Sunday, I think it’s a must see for anyone a bit interested in culture or classical music. Fryderyck Chopin is one of Poland’s most famous people. He… Read more »
You hear a lot about how flying is so expensive and how even the most well-known airlines are making losses. They try to come up with new ideas like creating their own budget airline, like Lufthansa’s Eurowings, or United‘s TED (which no longer exists), but they don’t seem to succeed in making profit. While many… Read more »
Before my trip to Warsaw, I said to myself there’s one building I really want to see during my short stay there and it’s the famous Palace of Culture and Science.
During my recent trip to Warsaw, I had the pleasure of staying at the Intercontinental. When I arrived, the selection of fancy cars at the hotel entrance couldn’t be missed, so things looked promising. Good to know those guys chose the same 5 star hotel to spend their nights in as I did.
If you’re ever in Mexico, chances are you’re going to do an activity that involves Mayan culture. Eastern Mexico has some extraordinary archeological sites, of which the best known and most beautiful are those in Tulum, Cobá (Quintana Roo) and Chichén Itzá (Yucatan). I went to visit the Mayan ruins in Tulum, Quintana Roo, which was available… Read more »
