What I learned from going vegan for a month

I made the decision to start the year off on a green note with one month of veganism. Why? For multiple reasons. After indulging in a lot of unhealthy food during the Christmas holidays, I wanted to get healthy and feel healthy again. For me, a vegan diet is also a great way to shed […]

My January round-up

This is a new addition to my blog. I want to start writing a monthly blog post about my travels, but also about what’s going on in my personal life. The point of this is to have fun and share more of my life with you guys. Okay, let’s get started. Here are the highlights […]

2018: A year of travel in 50 photos

This year has been a big travel year for me. I’ve travelled to more than 30 towns and cities across Europe and America, ate a ton of great food, climbed 15 towers and visited a lot of Christmas markets. Below I share 50 photos of my travels throughout the year, arranged from January to December. […]

My best and worst travel moments of 2018

Lessons learned from posting an article every day for a month

As you may or may not have noticed, I was very active on my blog during November. I posted a new article on my blog every day for a whole month. Yep, talk about commitment… Why would I do such a thing to myself, I hear you ask? Well, I did it for a number […]

Tracing my family’s travel history through old passports

This is a very special article for me. It’s a little bit more personal, and fittingly so, because today would have been my mother’s 59th birthday. I found a couple of old family passports and I enjoyed paging through them so much that I decided to write a blog article about it. It’s interesting to […]

Why my mother would have loved the Caribbean

If there’s such a thing as the ‘wanderlust gene’, I definitely have it. And if this gene is heritable, I definitely got it from my mother. She didn’t travel much herself, but she always wanted to. She often dreamed of faraway places… Unfortunately, she was taken from Earth much too soon. As a matter of […]
