A Gothic Masterpiece: Heavenly Light, Hellish Queues

Today I have another guest post for you! But before we get to that I’d like to thank you all, because Curlygirlabroad achieved more than 1000 followers!!! So thank you and enjoy this post about Sevilla:

Hi guys! My name is Lane Beck. I am an American travel blogger, Europhile, foodie, amateur photographer, recent vegetarian and ancient history enthusiast from sunny San Diego, CA. I spent most of my childhood living in Europe, go back as often as possible, and am planning my expat move. I also have a strange obsession with maps. I’m hoping the cure is more travel.

What to see in Bruges, according to travel bloggers

In September I went to Bruges or Brugge in my language, and for some reason I hadn’t posted about it yet, so …here we are. But then I thought nah, let’s not do the usual and just look at what others like about it, with me giving an extra comment here and there.

I’d like to point out that if you haven’t registered on Airbnb yet you totally can and if you use this link, we can help each other out by getting a nice discount on our next trip, hooray! The pictures in this post are the ones I made in September last year. Continue reading “What to see in Bruges, according to travel bloggers”

My favorite spot in Leuven

I had this draft post, that was intended to be published during the autumn season (when the pictures were taken). But well, let’s do thing differently and post it in summer! I have a new logo btw, but I’m not sure if it works? Any suggestions are more than welcome! 

I was born and raised in Leuven, a small city in Belgium, just 20 minutes from the capital Brussels. In Leuven we like to say that it is rather a town than a city. It’s not big at all. In my opinion Leuven is definitely worth a visit. It has a beautiful cathedral and town hall in Gothic style, and other medieval remainings such as the beguinages and ancient city walls.  Continue reading “My favorite spot in Leuven”

1st Anniversary of Curlygirlabroad

Curlygirlabroad has turned 1! Last year, on the 6th of May, I published my very first post (this one ) ! I honestly thought I wouldn’t keep up with it for a long time, but here I still am.

When adulthood is approaching

The past few weeks have been chaos, chaos in my head. Graduation (for the second time) is only two months away, and yet again, just like last year, the question “what next?” comes knocking on my door. A million scenarios have crossed my mind. The initial plan was to start an LLM degree in the UK in February 2018, but when I had a closer look at the financial picture I realized I would be losing more than gaining. So my plan, where my current degree was part of, suddenly got wiped away. I literally spent hours trying to adapt it, maybe I could study in the Netherlands, or in Germany… Although I’m quite a realistic person suddenly any possible scenario came to mind.

Getting lost in Venice: tips for budget travellers

I just got back from my trip to Italy last Saturday, and it was just what I needed! With the sun on my skin and surrounded by the gorgeous Italian culture, I could recharge my batteries for the final weeks of the academic year. It’s been a couple of years since I traveled to Italy, back in 2012 to Umbria and Rome, but I still had some good memories about it and was longing to experience the country once again. Venice wasn’t quite the same as the other places I’ve already been to in Italy. I was afraid it might be overrated or too busy. It sure was busy in some places, but you have to know where to go. Venice can be perfect for any budget traveler, getting lost along the many canals is just a perfect way to get around. Here are some tips on how you can experience Venice without spending your money on overpriced hotels or pasta. Continue reading “Getting lost in Venice: tips for budget travellers”

Why Malaga is a perfect Andalusian getaway

I always thought Malaga was one of those destinations in Spain where people go to for the nice weather, the sea and the parties. While you can definitely find these in Malaga, the city has so much more to offer! I was surprised by it’s beauty and really think this is could be a perfect place to explore part of the wonderful Andalusia. The airport has lots of connections and is only 6 km from the city itself. Malaga has a train station that connects with other destinations in Spain. I’ll share a couple of things I did during my three-day stay in the city.
