Who doesn’t love a good city trip? I have done many, especially in Europe, and some of my best travel memories were made during these trips.
From cities who have heart-achingly beautiful architecture, stunning beaches, hip and bustling city centers or unique waterways. Some cities just make the toughest of men stutter.
The world is our oyster – there is so much to see that it will take a lifetime to see it all. But with some help, you can narrow your scope to just some of the best. Just so know you where to effing start your city trip bonanza.
So here it is. My top 10 cities in the world that you should visit at least once in your life. Get your bucket list ready to add some amazing destinations. Let’s go…
Rotterdam, the Netherlands’ second largest city, and Europe’s biggest port. The city is known for its modern architecture which you can find throughout the city. It is also home to many festivals, offers a great nightlife, and has a lot of shops which are open 7 days a week!
The city, in the past, often skipped by tourist’s, only visiting Amsterdam and maybe Kinderdijk. Is now the fastest growing touristic city of Holland. And not without reason. Rotterdam is located only a hours drive from the main capital.
Enjoying this unique city with its crazy history is a must when visiting the Netherlands and in this post, I will explain why.
The last week of my holidays *snif*snif*. Time has gone by so incredibly quickly. I had lots of plans and was supposed to go see so many people and go to lots of places, but a virus and the flu stopped me from doing pretty much everything that I had set out to do.
The entire week I felt extremely rushed, so I could not really enjoy everything, which is a shame.
Underneath you can find a photo diary of my last few days in the Netherlands and my flights back to Sydney. (Back to working 9-5 behind a desk Yay haha)
It has been a few years since I lived in India (I did an internship at a 5-star hotel in Mahabalipuram, you can read what it was like here) My parents and sister came to visit me whilst I was there and we did an amazing road trip through Kerala and Tamil Nadu.
I, unfortunately, lost all my pictures when my computer crashed so I did not have any pictures of this trip. Luckily my dad has backups of everything and he still had tons of amazing pictures from this road trip.
In this post, I will show you some of the highlights of incredible India. I will show you lots of amazing pictures (My dad did an amazing job of capturing this unique country) and what it typically looks like. I might have put 1 or 2 pictures at the wrong city, don’t judge me on that, we had thousands of pictures and some got mixed up a bit (oopsies).
Safari Park Beekse Bergen is a… well a safari park. It is located in the South of the Netherlands only an hour drive from the Belgium border. It became world famous a few months back when some French tourist got out of their car in the Cheetah enclosure. (I don’t know what they were thinking, but no one got hurt, thank goodness) This park is home to approximately 1,250 animals from over 150 species, varying from small mammals to large birds.
Giraffes, Tigers, Lions, Sea Lions, Crocodiles, Hippo’s, Chimpanzees and Gorillas are just some of the animals that you can encounter at this park.
You can experience the park in many different ways, you can go on safari by car, boat, bus or on foot.
In this blog post, I will show you some of the animals that you can encounter when going to this unique park. Read on for more information and lots of pictures.
After being sick for almost two weeks – YAY stomach virus and then the flu – I was now finally feeling better and ready to go out and about. This was excellent timing since we were about to embark on a family holiday. We traveled to Hilvarenbeek in Brabant in the South of Holland for a week at a safari park.
Underneath you will find my week in photos. And I have some pretty snazzy pictures – if I say so myself haha – so check it out below and let me know in the comments if you like them as much as I do.
The beautiful state of Kerala in southern India is known for its lush surroundings and serene ambiance but the most splendid natural wonder of this state is its backwaters- a chain of lagoons and lakes.
Something that you must do when in Kerala is hop on a houseboat and sail the backwaters for a few days. In this post, I will show you what amazing scenery you will see during a trip in Kerala on the backwaters and what you should know when booking your very own boat.
Kangaroo Island is an amazing island located off the coast of South Australia, southwest of Adelaide. It is home to amazing scenery, breathtakingly beautiful national parks, soaring cliffs, and rugged coastlines and lots and lots of Australian wildlife.
Most of this stunning island is preserved and protected giving you a natural and pure experience for years to come.
I visited Kangaroo Island on a road trip for three nights and I would have liked a few more nights so that we could have enjoyed the island a bit more. Unfortunately, our campervan couldn’t survive without electricity long enough, so we had to leave the island a bit too soon.
Here’s everything you need to know to plan the perfect summer jail-break to the island of kangaroos. View Post
Another week in the Netherlands that did not go completely to plan. On Friday I traveled to Rotterdam to see my sister and her family. She called us in advance that her baby was sick and that she was home with him, but we were already on the way so we trotted on. The first day everything was great and I had an amazing time. On Saturday, one after another person got SUPER sick, I won’t go into details (eeek nasty!), but it was not fun. Everyone went down except for my strong Mom (she’s amazing). We, therefore, all ended up in bed instead of going out and about. I was planning to take pictures in Rotterdam as well as Kinderdijk, but I don’t think this will happen now.
So that is why you are missing a few days and in my photo diary, but there is nothing I could do.
Not a lot of people get the chance to fly business class, cause lets be frank, it is not the cheapest flight you will ever get. In September I flew home (to the Netherlands) for my yearly holiday. I have been sick in the last few months and I am a tad scared that my health will be suffering when I have to take such a long flight, I decided to book myself into a Business class seat.
My number one airline is Emirates, I have been flying with them for years and years and I always feel comfortable and safe with them. So this trip I also booked myself a business class seat with Emirates.
In this blog post, I will take you along my travels and what it was like to fly like fancy nancy does 😉
