Hi everyone! Lately I have very little time to make travel posts. Creating one takes a lot of time, but I love doing this. This is the travel diary about my road trip from Faro, Sevilla, Tarifa, Marbella and Malaga in 5 days. In February I was due to go to Mexico during my annual unpaid leave as a new distant solo trip. Joelle, a good friend of mine, wanted to travel with me last minute for a few days, before continuing the journey solo. To briefly summarize how that ended: The flight was full and Joelle and I were left behind (we were going to fly standby; a cheap way of flying for people in aviation if there is room on board). My heart was disappointed that we were left behind. We gave our cheesecake to the sweet senior purser I happened to know so that the crew could enjoy a snack on their long flight to Cancun. Unfortunately, we decided to pick up our suitcase and come up with a new plan on the spot. Once at plaza we canceled everything we had booked (and luckily got the money back from the hotels). We decided to do some brainstorming over a cup of coffee and then abruptly decided to fly to Joelle’s best friend later that afternoon. [Read more…]
Hi everyone. Anyone who follows my Instagram closely may have seen the entire rollercoaster of my travels. I wanted to fly ‘standby’ to Mexico (IPB). The flight was completely full last minute so there was no room left for Joelle and I. Joelle would come with me for a few days and I would then continue my journey solo. I was really, really excited about it. Just like when we went to Athens in 2018 with a friend, we decided to stay at the airport and look for another European destination on the spot and go instead of being disappointed all the time. We quickly got a quick test in Amsterdam and flew on to Faro. Faro is where our 5 day ‘road trip’ started, which I will soon tell you about in new travel posts.
I went to Lagos in the Algarve with my good friend Michelle, this trip had been planned for months. In this travel diary I give tips and tell you what we have discovered, done and seen in this 3 day trip at the beginning of Oktober. It sounds short, but by reading you will see how much we were able to see, do and relax in such a short time. The weather was clear and between 25-30 degrees all day, great!
Hi everyone! More than a week ago I left for Portugal for 3 days with a good friend of mine. It was really nice to be away for 3 days. It may sound very short, but we have done, seen and relaxed very much. I can’t wait to tell you much more about this journey. I shot this outfit at 3 different locations. This beautiful blue satin dress is nice for a chic dinner, but I thought it was suitable for this beautiful journey. The color is as blue as the sea. To get to these places I really had to climb a lot, on heels haha, but I am happy with the end result. Places where I shot it are Cabo de São Vicente, Ponta de Piedade and Praia do Camilo. These places are unbelievably beautiful, much more beautiful than I can capture with my camera. Recommendation to visit! [Read more…]
Hi everyone! I have just returned from a fantastic trip to the Algarve with one of my very best friends – Michelle. I felt very happy and really enjoyed the 3 days in beautiful southern Portugal. It felt like a gift. Soon, I will tell you a lot more about this in my upcoming travel diary. There are a lot of travel outfit posts coming online as well! Stay tuned. When I look at my photos and edit them from behind my laptop while relaxing with a cup of coffee, I still feel those butterflies which the trip gave me!
At the end of October I had been to Lisbon with a friend from my former study International Business (IBS). We were planning to visit a friend of ours who is studying there for a few months. Yanneke and I flew (standby) to Lisbon. This 4 day trip is for me number 4 of 2019 and my 3rd time in Lisbon. As I have said in many posts, Lisbon is my favorite city trip destination in Europe so far. The many colorful streets with sweet little restaurants keep surprising me. The follow up cities are Valencia and Porto for me. In 2015 I went there as a study trip (and during that time, my “cabin crew dreams” started). In 2017 I went there solo. [Read more…]
Lisbon is my favorite city trip destination in Europe as I have probably told you before. The colorful streets and all those cute places keep surprising me. I bought this cute dot dress in sale at Loavies. I wanted to bring a nice new dress to Lisbon last minute, so I chose this one. Where I am standing here, is at Pink Street near Cais do Sodre. This colored street is a hotspot in Lisbon, where many people take pictures. [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.
