15 pictures to inspire you to visit Granada

From Almeria, I moved on to Granada, where I spent two days. I needed a full day in the Alhambra, which was so much more beautiful than I’ve imagined. The second day I explored Granada itself. The city gives a Moroccan feel, I’ve never been there but it just felt like that. Tiny streets, white houses. Lots of little stores with spices displayed outside. Very lively, and so beautiful! Don’t forget your European Youth card for discounts. Continue reading “15 pictures to inspire you to visit Granada”

Travel Inspiration found among my favorite travel bloggers.

This post is meant to give you (and me) some travel inspiration for the coming year(s). Honestly on my list are too many things and I just keep adding places. That and the fact that I have major difficulties with making choices makes me constantly wonder where to travel next. Secondly I also like to share a few blogs I really enjoy reading/following, hoping I can convince you to do the same! For the moment I am going to share five great bloggers with you, perhaps I do a second round in a few weeks. Continue reading “Travel Inspiration found among my favorite travel bloggers.”

Almeria in pictures

As I told you, three weeks ago I went to the beautiful Andalusia in Spain! (read about it here) My first stop was in Almeria! I only stayed here for a brief two days, nevertheless I’ve gotten an impression and I really liked it here. It wasn’t that easy to find the hostel though, but eventually we did, luckily. Andalusia seems to be an ideal holiday for anyone on a budget, I stayed in the hostel for only 15 euros a night, breakfast included! Dinner was about 7 to 10 euros drinks included, so really not expensive. Of course I was travelling of season, which might have had something to do with it. Continue reading “Almeria in pictures”

Frangipane pie with quince and red fruit

This weekend we celebrated my father’s birthday! Since I occasionally feel like baking or cooking I decided to make him a birthday pie. I was searching on the internet for something I hadn’t tried before and came upon the frangipane pie with quince! Quince is usually a less known fruit, I know it because we grow it in our garden. It is good for your digestion, so each year my father makes jam and syrup of them when it is the right time. Continue reading “Frangipane pie with quince and red fruit”

London’s Best Weekend Markets

Hey everyone! I just got back from my holiday, and got some catching up to do. This weekend I have another guest post for you. My guest is Jasmine, who has a blog about living and renting in London. (check it out here: http://zaparoomblog.com/). Thank you Jasmine for this post!

London is an amazing place to visit both thanks to its history, its culture and its shopping. If you’re visiting London for a long weekend you must check out some of the brilliant market that’s scattered around town. Here we’ve listed Zaparoom’s favourite 5 markets.

Chasing knights at t’Gravensteen in Ghent

Let me start by something remarkable: for the first time in my 22-years I managed to not only follow my schedule, but to actually be ahead of it. Yes, I have time left to study, something must be wrong. Anyways, in September I visited t’Gravensteen in Gent/Ghent, a city in Flanders, Belgium. Gent might probably be my favorite city in Belgium. There is just something about it. Together with a friend we decided to be tourists in our own country and explore ‘t Gravensteen, a medieval castle.

It’s officially the last day of 2016! I wish everyone a wonderful evening and celebrations. I’m not going to do a review of my personal year, because honestly it wouldn’t be that interesting. Instead I decided to have a look at my stats to see which five most were the most popular in terms of views. Continue reading “2016: my five most popular posts”

What’s in my backpack?

In between studying and the holidays, I felt it was time to write another post. In July I backpacked for three weeks in the USA. It was something I had never done before. The key for me was to pack light, very light. I can’t carry a lot of weight around for long, so I wanted to stay as mobile as possible.  Continue reading “What’s in my backpack?”

Merry Christmas everyone!

In January I have exams, so for the next weeks I won’t be very active on here! After my exams I’m heading to Spain for two weeks, so I will then update you with fresh stories! 🙂

I’m wishing everyone who has upcoming exams: lots of motivation, concentration and also a bit of luck.

For those who already had them: (lucky bastards) enjoy your well-deserved holidays.

And for everyone in general: Merry Christmas! Enjoy your food, drinks, family, friends, … enjoy everything!
