If you have been following me for a while now then you know that I am originally from the Netherlands and I have been living in Australia for 7 years now. Once a year I hop on a never-ending plane trip back home to spend some time with my friends and family. Today is again that day where I am about to get on a flight home. In todays post I will show you what my plans are for my 4-week visit to the Netherlands and what blog posts you can expect whilst I am away and from my trip.

MINI ISLAND GUIDE: LANZAROTE

Lanzarote is an intriguing island with an extraordinary geology of 300 volcanic cones. There are great beaches, interesting sights and plenty of restaurants and hotels. The landscape has a stark and otherworldly appearance, with loads of unique black lava fields as far as the eyes can see.  The island’s major sights have been aesthetically developed by the late César Manrique, a Lanzarote native, and artist. Houses must be painted white, other than wooden windows and door frames or wooden shutters which can be any one of two shades of green. There’s no billboard advertising, no highrise buildings, giving the island a unique atmosphere.  So, in today’s blog post, I will show you some of the best things to see and do while on this amazing island, in my second mini island guide.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HOLIDAYING IN LONDON

A few weeks back I asked my Twitter followers which city I should do my next city guide on. With an overwhelming majority, they choose London.   I have only been to London once myself, so I have asked one friend to assist me with this travel guide. She has been several times (She has been trying to count how many times, but let’s say 10+) and absolutely loves the city. She has been to all the hot spots and knows some lovely secret spots as well. So here it is. What you must see, where you must stay and, most importantly, where you must eat and drink on a holiday in London.
