Staying at the Atrium Palace Thalasso Spa Resort & Villas, Rhodes

Rhodes is the largest of the Greek Dodecanese islands and known for its ancient ruins. It’s one of the most beautiful Greek islands with low mountains and picturesque beaches. In the quiet village of Kalathos, you’ll find the 5* beach front Atrium Palace Resort. I spent seven nights at this luxury resort in May. It’s […]

Eating Chef’s lunch at Hortus Restaurant, The Hague

Hortus Restaurant is unique in that it only serves vegetarian dishes made from local and organic produce. It’s rated as one of the best vegetarian and vegan restaurants in The Hague, so naturally, I had to check it out for myself. I popped in for lunch which is served between 12h00 and 15h00. The lunch […]

Vegetarian dishes to try on Rhodes

One of the highlights of my recent trip to Rhodes was the incredible local food. Just thinking about it now makes my mouth water. Add to that amazing Greek hospitality and you’ve got a dining experience you’ll never forget. If I could eat only Greek cuisine for the rest of my life, I’d be as […]

Why Lindos should be on your bucket list

The moment I saw the white buildings and beautiful beaches of Lindos, I fell in love with the village on the Greek island of Rhodes. Prior to booking my vacation, I’d never even heard of Lindos. But now, after seeing and spending some time in this picturesque fisher village, I doubt that I’ll ever forget […]

Romance in Flowers: Keukenhof 2018

A week ago Keukenhof, undoubtedly the main attraction during Spring in the Netherlands, or in Europe for that matter, closed its gates for the year. Did you visit the gardens between March and May to see the millions and millions of flowers? I did, and once again Keukenhof did not disappoint. The theme this year was […]

All the food I ate in Zürich

If you are anything like me, then you love eating your way through a new destination. Is there a better way to get a taste of local life than indulging in local cuisine? You don’t have to answer that question because obviously, the answer is no! As I’ve said in my previous Zürich posts, Switzerland […]

The 2018 flower parade

This past weekend was the annual flower parade or ‘bloemencorso’ here in the Netherlands. Every year this vibrant parade starts in the coastal town of Noordwijk, passing through several small towns along the way, finally ending in Haarlem.

My Zürich Photo Diary

Zürich is the largest city in Switzerland with a population of approximately 400 000 people. But it’s not the capital, did you know that? I didn’t, and here I thought I was a geography buff. (Hangs head in shame). Just in case you were wondering, Bern is the capital of Switzerland. But back to Zürich. […]

Budget guide to Zürich

I just spent three days in Zürich, and let me tell you, Switzerland is expensive. I will never again complain about how pricey Amsterdam is because compared to Zürich, it’s downright cheap. But money or more specifically, lack thereof, shouldn’t keep you from exploring the largest city in Switzerland. Below are my best budget tips […]

The most affordable place to stay in Zürich: City Backpacker – Hostel Biber

It’s no secret that Switzerland is expensive, from transportation to food, and everything in between. When it comes to finding affordable accommodation in Zürich, you have three hostels to choose from. I opted to stay at Hostel Biber. Here’s why: Location of the hostel When I say the location of the hostel couldn’t be better, […]

My best Winter Moment: Walking to All Saints Waterfalls

With Spring knocking at the door here in Amsterdam, I can’t help but take a look back at my best Winter moment. Without a doubt, that moment belongs to my walk in the snow to the All Saints Waterfalls in the Black Forest back in December. Waterfall. Snow. Black Forrest. Germany. Need I say more? […]
