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”

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. Continue reading “Why Malaga is a perfect Andalusian getaway”

Five places you need to see in Sevilla

After I’ve been to AlmeriaGranada and  Jaén and Cordoba, I continued the journey in Andalusia. I planned three days in Sevilla, which is a wonderful city. The first day it was pouring rain so I mainly spent my time indoors. The two other days were very pleasant and also allowed me to explore the areas outside of the city. I stayed in Eurostars Regina Hotel, which wasn’t expensive at all, and the buffet in the morning was very yummy.  Continue reading “Five places you need to see in Sevilla”

Impressions of Jaén and Cordoba

After visiting Almeria and Granada I had one day to explore the region of Jaén and another to visit Cordoba. This might seem like a very short time, nevertheless I’ve managed to get a good impression of both, without having to run from one place to another. Also this time I decided to stay in a hostel. This one was really great! Very good value for little money. The only issue we had on the first day of my arrival was to find dinner. Apparently it was a local holiday so pretty much anything nearby was closed. For the two evenings (I stayed here to explore Granada as well) we ate at Bomborombillos. This place is so great! Our waiter was very friendly and advised us some good tapas and products from the area. We had fantastic and local food for a great price, definitely a recommendation!  Continue reading “Impressions of Jaén and Cordoba”

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.”
