MY TOP 10 EUROPEAN CITIES

It took me a long time to compile this list simply because I kept disagreeing with myself. I planned a top ten then contemplated making it longer, to fit in the other places that definitely do warrant a place but sadly don’t quite fit in (in my eyes). Of course, there’s plenty of cities I … Continue reading MY TOP 10 EUROPEAN CITIES

MODERN ART IN MUSEUM SQUARE | AMSTERDAM DAY 2 | WEEKEND WANDERING

And on the second day, the clocks changed. Thus, we did not rise until late morning. Yet, it was still Sunday so we weren't in a rush, so we awoke slowly and meandered to Amersfoort train station, where we caught a train in to Amsterdam central to see some of the best modern art The … Continue reading MODERN ART IN MUSEUM SQUARE | AMSTERDAM DAY 2 | WEEKEND WANDERING

FREE FERRIES AND SECRET CAFES | AMSTERDAM DAY 1 | WEEKEND WANDERING

Considering its only a 45 minute plane ride away and a good friend of mine lives there its pretty much a travesty that I hadn't visited Amsterdam since 2015. Though judging by the title of this post, you've probably figured out that I finally managed to return to the land of cheese and beer...

BOND AND BAKERIES | ROTTERDAM | WEEKEND WANDERING

That's right. Bond. As in, James Bond. I am a huge Bond fan, and take every opportunity to see a spectacle put on in it's favour. My friend Karolina knows this, and found out there was an exhibition on all about designing 007 in Rotterdam, so we got the train over there. It was a temporary … Continue reading BOND AND BAKERIES | ROTTERDAM | WEEKEND WANDERING

CHRISTMAS, CULTURE AND CAKE | AMSTERDAM | WEEKEND WANDERING

In December of last year (2014), I took a trip to see my very good friend, Karolina, who lives in Amersfoort. As she is an excellent and incredibly lovely person, she welcomed me into her home and then showed me around. Now, I know Christmas travels aren't always at the front of people's minds as Christmas … Continue reading CHRISTMAS, CULTURE AND CAKE | AMSTERDAM | WEEKEND WANDERING
