Weekend Getaway: Zion National Park

Weekend Getaway: Zion National Park

This was such a bittersweet holiday for us: one of my best friends, Christina, was leaving California to head back home to New York, and this was our way of celebrating. We loaded into, our friend, Kevin’s car around 23.30 and hit the road! We […]

Holiday: Thailand

Holiday: Thailand

A month being back home and I’m already on the road again. My dad and I ran off to Thailand to explore the Land of Smiles. He went with his dad when he was a couple years older than I am, so, in a way, […]

Weekend Getaway: Reykjavík, Iceland

Weekend Getaway: Reykjavík, Iceland

To be completely factual, this trip didn’t actually occur on a weekend, but it was for the length of a weekend so I find this to be a fitting category nonetheless. Jos and the boys dropped my mom and I off at Schiphol (luckily since […]

Weekend Getaway: London

Weekend Getaway: London

I have finally gone to London. And I loved it. No wonder so many people, from all around the world move here: it’s cozy yet international, brisk yet it leaves you with a warm feeling (maybe it’s the mulled wine). A number of people recommend […]

Weekend Getaway: Antwerp, Belgium

Weekend Getaway: Antwerp, Belgium

Summer Holiday: San Marino

Summer Holiday: San Marino

It was 07.00 and I was finally able to get off the ferry I was trapped on for 12hours. I hardly slept and when I did it was an awful, sitting-in-an-airplane-chair kind of sleep. I was beyond ready to get off that boat. (Side note: […]

Summer Holiday: Croatia

Summer Holiday: Croatia

Getting into Croatia I left Kotor, Montenegro at 08.30 on a bus headed into Croatia; we would be in Dubrovnik at about 10.30, or so I thought. I snatched a window seat so I could watch us leave beautiful Montenegro, and I was not disappointed. All along […]
