Back in Business:

So it’s been a while, but I’m back! I’ve been working very hard to get my blog updated to this site, which gives me more possibilities & freedom!

Something that is new there is Travel Map which you can find in the top menu. It shows you the world map, marked with spots that I wrote about. I think it’s pretty cool and it might be useful for you if you’re looking for a particular post.

A short update to let you know that I transferred blogs and there won’t be any posts coming here anymore! Also, don’t forget to follow my new site via bloglovin’ so you don’t miss out on anything! you can do so by clicking here: Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I hope to see you on!

Happy New Year

Happy new year! I hope that 2014 will be your best year so far and all your wishes and dreams come true!

I kind of started 2014 in a bad way since I got robbed on January 1st. I now don’t have my phone and Laptop (and a lot of other valuable stuff) anymore and I lost all my pictures. This means I can’t really work on new blogposts right now. My goal is to start uploading more blogposts a week on a regular basis, so as soon as I got a new laptop I’ll be back online! 🙂

Christmas in the royal palace

Earlier I spoke about maybe visiting the royal palace in my hometown during our second day of Christmas, and that’s what we did! There are not any royals living in ‘Paleis het Loo‘ anymore and it is now open for public. During the winter times they go all out with decorating the palace exactly the way it used to look during christmas whilst the royals were still living there. Today the pictures we made during our visit! Continue reading


So today, december 5th we celebrate ‘Sinterklaas’ here in Holland! Since I like to read about festive celebrations from other cultures, I thought it might be fun to tell the non-dutchies something about Sinterklaas and how it’s celebrated. Basically, the Sinterklaas holiday  is the same as christmas, but without the elves, reindeers and the tree. We do have the old men though. I’ll explain all about it in this post! Continue reading

Study abroad: Bali & Thailand

Half Juli ben ik teruggekomen uit Azië, waar ik een half jaar heb gestudeerd. Dit avontuur begon met mijn eerste minor in Bali, waarna we doorvlogen naar Thailand om daar onze tweede minor te volgen. Naast dat het natuurlijk de bedoeling was dat we af en toe wat aan school deden, hebben we voornamelijk heel veel gereisd. Van scooter tochten op Bali, Vulkanen beklimmen in Java en olifanten trainen in Thailand, we hebben elk avontuur met beide handen aangegrepen! Tijdens mijn reis heb ik een blog bijgehouden en het leek me leuk om ook hier mijn reisverhalen met jullie te delen. Deel 1 heb je al eerder kunnen lezen, vandaag het vervolg! Continue reading
