SYDNEY TO BYRON BAY ROAD TRIP

SYDNEY TO BYRON BAY ROAD TRIP

Byron Bay is definitely a must see when visiting Australia as it is an Aussie fave when it comes to holiday destinations. Festivals, chilled vibes, friendly people, beautiful scenery, tasty food, pristine beaches and more is what you will get when visiting this iconic town. A few months back I decided to take a road trip from Sydney to Bryon and see the amazing well known NSW coastline along the way. We stopped in Port Macquarie, Coffs Harbour, Yamba and lastly at macadamia castle (not made out of Macadamia’s hahaha!) – just outside of Byron Bay and did the same (sort of) on the drive back.

Beautiful scenery, unimaginable stunning beaches and a tonne of wildlife(Koala’s, Roos, Dingos :O), are only a handful of things you will see along the way and with a killer playlist to keep you singing all the way there, 100’s of snacks so you don’t die and a camera for those special moments, you can do it too.

Keep scrolling if you want to follow me on this incredible trip that I took a few months back. I hope you enjoy!

REVIEW | CARTIER LOVE BRACELETS DUPES

REVIEW | CARTIER LOVE BRACELETS DUPES

For the longest time, I have been seeing these amazing bracelets. I never knew what they were, where they were from etc, but I still loved them and thought they look amazing. The other day I was watching a youtube video where someone was wearing one of these bracelets and casually mentioned the name: the Love Bracelet. I immediately opened up google and did a search. Cause I wanted to buy one.

To my disbelieve a standard love bracelet costs 6,300 AUD. WOW. There is no way I can afford that.

Luckily you can find dupes for pretty much everything so I had a look on AliExpress (similar website to Wish) to see what they had to offer. When you type in love bracelet 100,302 results pop up.

I bought three of these dupes to see if they can pass the bill and if they actually look similar to the real one.

HOLIDAY DESTINATION SYDNEY – EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

HOLIDAY DESTINATION SYDNEY – EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

Sydney is one of the best cities I have ever been too (I love it so much that they can’t get rid of me). With over 100 beaches, a world-famous harbor and 236 days of sunshine. What is not to love?

For tourists, it can be a tad daunting, since the playground is so immense and so much to see and do but it is hard to make a dent. With a famous bridge and opera house, many many beaches and lots of walking trails, at times it’s all a little overwhelming.

So I thought I would help a fellow traveler out and scribble down what you must see and how much a trip to Sydney would cost you. (She ain’t cheap). You’re welcome…

THE EMIRATES BUSINESS CLASS AMENITIES BAG

I am sure you are aware of it by now, but recently I flew back home (to the Netherlands) to spend a few weeks with my family. I always travel with Emirates, and this time was no exception. I did, however, flew business class, because of my health issues.  I wrote an extensive post on it, which you can find HERE.

As a business class member, you get an amenities bag for overnight flights. It is filled with goodies and good quality items.

So, are you planning to fly business class soon and wondering what amenities you will get from Emirates? In this post, I have compiled all the amenities and I have reviewed the amenities bag (New edition 2018)

CITY GUIDE TO ROTTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS

CITY GUIDE TO ROTTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS

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.

PHOTO DIARY #12 COMFY SUMMER CLOTHING HAUL, FOOTBALL AND TRAVELING

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)

INCREDIBLE INDIA: A ROAD-TRIP IN THE SOUTHERN STATES

INCREDIBLE INDIA: A ROAD-TRIP IN THE SOUTHERN STATES

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).
