The small village of Bourtange is probably something you have never heard off unless you are from the Netherlands yourself. This small village was built in 1530 and is a fort built in a star.
Additionally, it is a pretty typical old Dutch town and is pretty cool to have a look at when you are in Holland.
In this blog post, I will show you the must-know information about this village and what you can expect when going to this cool little town.
Rich in history and architecturally stunning, the Queen Victoria Building (QVB) occupies an entire block on Sydney’s George Street and has more than 180 of Sydney’s finest fashion boutiques, blingy jewelry shops, cafes, and yummy restaurants.
If you are unfamiliar with the building then I am sure you have noticed how beautiful it is, but there is a lot more then meets the eye. In this post, I will take you inside the building and show you why this is one of Sydney’s most popular buildings.
Europe has culture, nature, fantastic cities and amazing festivals. But the continent is mostly seen as a summer destination. From the sunny steps in Rome to the blistering sun in Paris in June, Europe is mostly a summer destination.
Did you, however, know that Europe is absolutely stunning in winter as well? From the frozen canals in Amsterdam to the snowfields in the Alps and the Igloo hotel in Finland and the husky safari in Scandinavia…..What is not to love?
In this post, I will show you some of the most amazing things you can do in winter and what are the top destinations to go to when the thermometer drops below 0 Brrrrrrrrrrrr!
Yeap she did it again. I told you, once I love doing something I get hooked and I just cannot stop! So, for the second time in a few weeks, I took my tunes to the beach after dark and shot some Astro pictures… Or at least I have attempted to take some.
Underneath are the pictures and what I did differently than my first time and whether it has made a difference.
Of course, feel free to let me know in the comments below, what you think of these pictures and if you have any tips or tricks for me. Would love to know.
Did you know that Sydney is home to more than 100 beaches! I know shocking that there are more beaches than just Bondi. In December I had friends over from the Netherlands and I took them to Manly beach for a day. We took the ferry back and enjoyed the harbor views on a budget.
Here’s what to do if you want to experience another one of Sydney’s famous beaches:
Are you getting tired of me saying how flipping cool Sydney is? Then sorry here is another post on how flipping amazing and stunning and beautiful Sydney is.
The other week I went for a walk right before sunset and took my fancy pants Camera with me. Right, when I reached the harbor the sun started to set and the city looked more amazing than ever. Underneath are just some of the picture I took. (Once I start, I find it hard to stop taking pictures). Do you guys have the same problem or is that just me?? HMMMMMM
This past Thursday was a hot, bright, sunny day in Sydney and the beginning of the Australian heat wave! Woohoo! Not lol (Well depends haha)… So the first thing I did, of course, was the beach! BEACH BEACH BEACH (cheering voice). So, I felt like going somewhere different than to my local beaches, not that they aren’t great or anything, but a change of scenery is always good for the soul.
Keep on reading if you wish to hear more about this fun day and all the tips and tricks I have for navigating the crazy Sydney ferries – particularly this ferry track – my goodness, what a ride!!
The blue mountains are an amazing phenomenal nature that you must see when traveling to Sydney. The mountains are so tranquil, breathtaking and unique.
In December I had friends over from the Netherlands and we rented a car to go see some of the highlights of the mountains.

You have hopped on a plane to Australia to see all the amazing sights that this country has to offer. You have been on the road for 2 weeks and you ended up in Sydney to spend your last couple of days in this pretty amazing city. BUT… You haven’t seen any kangaroos!
This happened to a friend of mine who had flown all the way from the Netherlands to spend Christmas and new years in Australia.
I wanted to make sure that they did not leave Australia without having seen the local wildlife, so I asked around and was told about this amazing place.
We took our chances, hopped in our rental and drove up to Glenbrook National Park. Here is what happened next.
