Did I mention how we decided to visit Bilbao in June, just to be hit by 12°C temperatures and drizzle ?
Well, when Bilbao gives you rain, you have the option to sulk, or to go see some kick-ass museums, eat fantastic Basque food and just #raindontcare … More When Bilbao gives you rain, you… Eat?
It was a sunny Saturday morning and I was sitting on my balcony, scrolling Instagram for my weekly fix of travel daydreaming, when I saw it:
San Juan de Gaztelugatxe.
Just… love at first sight!
And this wanderlusting was not for a far away place, because the amazing piece of nature -meets – man-made is a mere 50 minutes flight away from Barcelona.
In my mind this was a done deal, right there on that balcony. … More Off the beaten: San Juan de Gaztelugatxe
Ibiza off season was completely on purpose (and partly because of the crazy cheap flights, yes) but I am glad we went against the crowds.
Because, once you cut out the clubs, the overly crowded beaches & the constantly inebriated youth (hey, I’m 30 now, I am allowed to complain about the youngsters, okay?) Ibiza has a special charm of its own.
Once you step outside the hotel, you’ll be getting an almost rural glimpse into what the island would have been, if the Guettas and the Pacha’s and Ushuaïa’s didn’t exist. … More An Off-Season Quickie to Ibiza
Basel was a gift for my husband’s birthday, since he’s wanted to go to Baselworld for a long time.
And yes I’ll admit when it comes to travel, I am always a little bit selfish, so I would not pass on the opportunity to check Switzerland off my list.Read more…
Also, I wanted to see what all the fuss is about; heh Switzerland? And between the very short stop to Geneva & Lausanne and now Basel, I have to say I get it.

What can you say about Venice, that 68,478 other people haven’t already said already? So many people that Venice is considering putting a cap on the number of people visiting, to control overcrowding?

Paris is the first trip I ever paid with my own hard-earned money.
In the 8 years since, I lost count of the number of times I’d been to Paris since. There were weekends away, weeks away, business travels, in’n outs..
In all those visits, I started developing my own kind of love/hate relationship with the city…. … More My Love / Hate Relationship with Paris
As part of my Benelux-stalgia these days (See here the Hague-stalgia and Leuven-stalgia) I decided to go to my bag of memories and pull out Amsterdam.
When I say Hague, do you think beaches, sunshine, Aperols and gin tonics? Me neither! Which is why I was so pleasantly surprised when.. … More Not a tourist: Beach-side Hague
Portugal is an amazing country for so many reasons, as it embraces all travelers alike: foodies, nature lovers, families or couples, surfers, city trippers or party people.. you’ll all find something to love about Portugal.
And I think it’s (still) fair to say it’ll be the most budget conscious country in all of Western Europe.
I’ll be posting a series of short impressions on different locations in Portugal: Lisbon, Albufeira, Guiamares, Aveiro.. This one is about Porto. … More Weekend Getaway: Porto on a budget
