What’s up with the Great Barrier Reef

Posted on August 25, 2017

The Great Barrier Reef is one of the wonders of the world. It’s reached the news quite a lot of over the last couple of years because of a few big bleaching events (where coral turns white and almost dies). There is so much to say about this amazing underwater world that I’ve decided to do a whole series on it! Today we’re going to explore what makes the reef so special. In the following articles, you are going to find out how to visit the Great Barrier Reef yourself and a review on the boats that I experienced plus tips on how to pick the best boat for you.

8 Must Do’s in Darwin

Posted on July 28, 2017

Most articles about Darwin or fun things you can do in the city move straight on to the beautiful national parks, Kakadu and Litchfield national park, located a few hours out of the city. Even though those parks are absolute must-visits when you’re at the top end of Australia, the city itself has a few cool activities to offer as well.

A bonified tropical city known for its party life, its resident crocodiles and for being a city so so far away from everything, it’s quite a unique place to be all on its own. Continue Reading

A Perfect Weekend in Antwerp

Posted on July 1, 2017

There is one Belgian city that holds a special spot in my heart, Antwerp. It is the Fashion and Diamond capital of Belgium and it is such an awesome city. Antwerp is all about fashion, hip new coffee bars and has an excellent nightlife. Having lived here for five years, I’ve spent many perfect weekends here between my 9 to 5. Therefore it’s the ideal city to spend a weekend away from home.

The best time to visit most European cities is in the summer time and this is no different for Antwerp. With pop-up concepts spread all across the city and plenty of greenery, the city is lively, exciting and relaxing all at once. With Belgian’s national holiday coming up on the 21st of July, I decided to create my perfect weekend in Antwerp. It was so difficult to pick and choose as there is so much more to experience. This weekend is pretty perfect as it is, but I do think you should come back one day and do the rest. I hope you enjoy it! Continue Reading

The best town to spot wildlife in New Zealand

Posted on June 22, 2017

When it comes to traveling, seeing wildlife will always be one of the biggest highlights for me. In New Zealand, the native wildlife consists mostly out of birds so if you want to get a bigger wildlife fix, your best bet is to head to the ocean. The cold waters that surround New Zealand are known for its abundance of marine life, amongst others Fur seals, Sperm whales, Blue whales, Killer whales and tons of dolphins. Almost every bay even has its own variety of dolphins that look and behave completely different. In search of seeing some beautiful animals, I headed to the wildlife heaven called Kaikoura on the South Island of New Zealand. Continue Reading

Most of you might not realize but in order to write on a regular basis, one need a routine and some regularity.

A Quick Guide to Franz Josef and Fox Glacier

Posted on March 30, 2017

Franz Josef was on the bucket list for New Zealand from the second I knew I was going to this amazing country. A land where the ocean meets the mountains and the sunsets are mind-blowing? Where do I sign up?!

The west coast of New Zealand is a unique place in the world. The views are so breathtaking that legends say people were too busy looking around that they were getting too lazy. So the gods introduced sandflies. Pesky tiny flies that harass you for a good portion of the day and will make sure that you’re not lazing around on the gorgeous west coast beaches.

Don’t let them stop you from visiting the coast though as it has so much going for it. The West Coast Tourism Board was kind enough to invite us (thanks to the excellent organization skills of my friend Lieselot) to their little part of the country so we could explore it to the fullest. Here is my quick guide to Franz Josef and Fox Glacier. Continue Reading
