PHOTO OPPORTUNITY GALORE IN KIRRIBILLI

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY GALORE IN KIRRIBILLI

Last weekend my friend Kim and I took advantage of a break in the cold winter weather and headed over to Kirribili near the Sydney Harbour. This place really is a photo op galore, from heart-stopping beautiful views of Sydney’s Harbor, the Sydney Harbor Bridge, Sydney Opera House, and the cities sensational skyline….There are just too many photo opportunities.

We spend about 3 hours there before we had to head home and took that time to our full advantage. We took some pretty dazzling shots which I will show you underneath. I will also show you where to find these spots, in case you would like to re-create these. Cause you really should!

THE MOST EXPENSIVE HOTELS IN THE WORLD

THE MOST EXPENSIVE HOTELS IN THE WORLD

One of the most fun tasks when booking a trip is finding a hotel. With each destination comes its unique styles and challenges.  From quirky to modern to cozy and from cheap to super expensive, there are often many options and many amazing amenities or perks.

The other day I was browsing Facebook, as you do, and stumbled upon an article about a unique hotel in Antarctica! I was intrigued and did some research on it. It is bloody amazing and only costs $92,500 per person. So yeah!

But this hotel did give me the idea to look up some more amazing hotels around the globe that cost a sweet penny.

THE SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE

THE SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE

The Sydney opera house is probably one of the most iconic buildings in the world! Who has not seen the iconic images of the unique building at Sydney’s harbor?

If you have never seen this building up close, then you probably have never realized how crazy it looks! I for example always thought it was 1 large building, but there are instead 4 separate buildings! Mind is blown, right?

The other week on a lovely sunny autumn day, I took my fancy pants DSLR camara to Circular Quay and took some pictures of this building up close! Curious what it looks like then read on….

A MINI-BREAK IN HOBART, TASMANIA

A MINI-BREAK IN HOBART, TASMANIA

Last week I was on a short mini-break in Tasmania to de-stress, enjoy life and just have a break from my day-to-day working live (managing a hotel is not as easy as most of you will think, its a high-stress job I tell ya).

I will be writing lots of cool guides etc about my holiday, but I thought I would share some pictures and a daily guide first. So this post is a sort of photo diary, but then better. (I think)

MINI GUIDE TO OOTMARSUM, NETHERLANDS

MINI GUIDE TO OOTMARSUM, NETHERLANDS

I think pretty much 100% of the people following my blog have never heard of this small town before. Heck, I am certain if I would ask a Dutchman, most of them would say they don’t know where this little town is located. And, I can’t blame you. It is a pretty small town in the East of the Netherlands, and there is not a whole lot happening.

You might wonder, why the heck would I write a post about it then?
Well, this town is where my family originated. My family is super small and we have an unusual last name, so it is pretty easy to track our history (well we didn’t even have to do that, cause my grandpa is the first of the family to leave his village for love nawwwwwwwwwww).

The town is actually very cute and went I was back home last September and I visited it with my parents. I took a bunch of photos which I would like to share with you. Additionally, I will give you some basic information, in case you are ever in the area and would like to check it out.

HOBART TRAVEL GUIDE

HOBART TRAVEL GUIDE

Hobart in Tasmania is a hidden little gem. I absolutely fell in love with the cute little city during my mini-break in March this year. The city has the charm of an old harbour town, with lots of historic buildings, a cute harbour and lots of pretty views. 

Just a short scoot over Bass Straight and you’re in a magical land that’s so naturally beautiful it takes your breath away. There’s mountains, forests, national parks and rustic oceans for days. In my opinion, this makes Hobart the perfect place to relax from city life or just a great place for a mini getaway.

In this post, you will find lots of information on what to do, see and eat when traveling to Hobart, the capital city of Australia’s island state Tasmania.

CATCHING A SUNSET AT TARONGA ZOO WHARF

CATCHING A SUNSET AT TARONGA ZOO WHARF

A couple of weeks ago I ventured over to Taronga Zoo Wharf for some sunset photography. I am sure you guys must be getting tired of my attempts to take decent pictures, but hold your horses cause here is another one of those posts.

This was a very beautiful sunset though that just kept on giving and just got better and better as time went on. So what can you do then just keep taking picture after picture! I ended up with more than 300 pictures of just one silly sunset. I won’t be uploading all of those cause I think my site will crash, but I will be handpicking the best of the best (well, my best, you know what I mean) and take you along a romantic blog post.
