Kalimera! Previous week was a great week. I have been on two trips and am now back at (my lovely) work. Where I am standing here is near the Acropolis in Athens. I planned to go to Tel Aviv with a friend, but ultra last minute, our plans changed and we rebooked the trip at the airport to Athens. The flight to Athens would leave that same day in the afternoon. We wanted to go to something warm, haha. Athens is such a nice city! I had a great time together with my friend for 4 days and I have done many nice things. The weather was lovely and I have been able to wear all kinds of new summer dresses that were too cold for the Netherlands. [Read more…]
I had 5 days off at work as a flight attendant and once again I wanted to take the opportunity to travel.
One of my friends was working abroad again for a couple of months so I decided to plan a mini trip on my own to visit her at Palma de Mallorca – so technically this is, just like my trip to Lanzarote to that same friend, not a completely solo trip. [Read more…]
This is the second part of my travel report to Porto. If you have not read the first part yet, you can click on the link here. After the nice lunch we went for a walk through many nice streets of Porto and took a lot of pictures of all the beautiful things that Porto had to offer and that we encountered at that moment. We got to know each other quite well during this trip. [Read more…]
One of the reasons that I travel alone is due to my great wanderlust. Moreover, an extra reason is that if I do not manage to get friends / travel companions on a trip, I will still go alone. Anyways, I really like being on my own as well. I like traveling because it gives me a lot of new, special and fun memories and because it is something completely different than my everyday life.

People that have read my Porto travel diary have probably spotted this outfit a couple of times in it. With a number of photos that I had left, I decided to make a mini outfit post. This is an outfit of my second day in Porto. My hair was not exactly as I hoped on these pictures haha. This in my opinion cute mini dress has very big wide flared sleeves, but I do not have them on my pictures. I liked to combine with my black sneakers and favorite mini MK. [Read more…]
My solo trip to Porto was AMAZING. I met so many great people and had lots of fun. I took so many pictures that I would like to share with you all to give an impression of this great city. Can’t wait to post more on my blog and social media about it together with all of my great experiences. The amazing people I met and I already talked about going back for the big São João event in Porto next year haha – I arrived one day after it. [Read more…]
This is one of my favorite outfit’s from 2017 and I wore this outfit on a sunny balcony in Barcelona half a year ago. I often got asked on Instagram where I got this top. I decided to create a new blogpost for it with some nice holiday photos from May. Some of the photos are from my Barcelona travel post part 2, and I have moved them to here with some extra photos. I still really like this flared top!
The second day in Lisbon started with a breakfast in my hostel with a lovely view of the city. Today, I would probably get new roommates. For this day, I booked a nice cycling tour with a Dutch guy that lives in Lisbon for years. An hour or two after getting up, I went to the destination by foot. After half an hour of walking many meters of unknown streets and high stairs, I arrived at the place where it would start. Together with two others, the cycling tour could begin. [Read more…]
In this post, I am going to share my second (well.. first completely alone) solo travel experience with you. Maybe this gives you that extra push to go on a mini solo trip on your own, or maybe you will just like reading about it. I’d love to share my most lovely pictures and experiences of this beautiful city with you. I hope you will like it! Lisbon is a city that I find absolutely fantastic and love to visit over and over again. The city is near the Tagus (Tejo) River which ends in the sea. It is a city with beautiful buildings, lovely atmosphere and always plenty to do. [Read more…]
