CITY TRIPPING CZECH REPUBLIC BEYOND HISTORIC PRAGUE – Let’s ‘czech’ out alternative Prague, Olomouc, Ostrava and Brno thumbnail

Let’s get one thing straight right from the start: I love historic Prague. It’s absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately, it’s also one of the 10 most visited cities in Europe, and probably way too busy for anyone who likes a bit of peace and quiet. But there’s more to Czech Republic than historic Prague, and I was… Read More

Hidden gems in Europe – Tolmin gorge, Triglav national park, Slovenia – Best unique places to visit

In exactly 7 weeks, I'll be getting on a plane to Africa. Counting down the days?! Who? Me?!? I have no return ticket, no idea about when I'm coming back to Europe and no plan whatsoever. I figured it was best this way, 'cause the whole time I thought I needed a plan, it was driving… Read More

CITY GUIDE – What to do in Ghent, Belgium – Best things – Highlights

'Where are you from? ' Those four words, that one seemingly simple question has been the start of many long conversations all over the world. From me giving a whole list of neighboring countries in an attempt to explaining where the hell that tiny country of mine is located as soon as I leave Europe, over… Read More

Photo guide – A safari in Tanzania – Lake Manyara National Park

We headed out early that morning. It was a 3 to 4 hours’ drive to the entrance of Lake Manyara National Park and Nikki and I couldn’t wait to get there and start this 4-day adventure. It was her second safari but for me it was the first, and I can’t remember the last time… Read More

UN DÍA EN… – The white villages of Málaga, Andalusia, Spain thumbnail

'¡Hola! ¿Sabe donde puedo comer algo por aquí? ' I asked the old man that was slowly making his way through the town of Cútar if he knew where I could find something to eat. It was way past noon, the sun was burning and the roads were steep, and I didn't manage to walk much faster… Read More

UN DIA EN… – Hiking the Caminito del Rey, Andalucía, Spain

!Hola! ?Qué tal? Yes, chicos and chicas, I just got back from enjoying la playa and the sun in Andalucía for 6 weeks! I’m not even gonna pretend I was there for anything else than fun and relaxing... But as long as I share the good times with you, I’m sure you don’t mind! Right… Read More

IN PHOTOS – Piva Canyon and Durmitor national park, Montenegro

Montenegro. In a country whose name literally means 'black mountain', the winding roads and endless views probably won't come as a surprise. But can you ever expect to find nature as stunning as THIS in a country you'd probably not even be able to locate without Google maps? With a capital whose name doesn't even ring a bell? Podgorica... Yep… Read More

VIDEO GUIDE: DISCOVERING THE NETHERLANDS – A last-minute weekend in Gelderland

I guess it happens to anyone who travels. Every birthday, Christmas or Valentines day you either get a new set of camping plates or quick-drying socks, or a gift voucher for some kind of travel experience. I had five of the latter and for once I decided not to wait for the expiration date to use… Read More
