The city that surprised me When we were planning our trip to China a lot of people told us that China would be very crowded and very dirty. Well I have to tell you: those people were wrong when it comes to Beijing! The streets are very clean and it’s true that there live a … More Beijing 


Monterrico: black sand beaches and amazing waves Monterrico (Guatemala) was the last spot we were during our Central America trip. It’s an amazing place if you just want to relax for a few days – which we wanted after our volcano hike in Antigua. The first thing we absolutely loved here was that Monterrico has … More Monterrico

Lake Atitlán

Lake Atitlán: a massive shout out to the hostel La Iguana Perdida When we finished relaxing at the amazing Zephyr Lodge in Lanquin (see my other post), we decided to go to Lake Atitlán. Lake Atitlán is a lake in the Guatemalan Highlands (1500 metres) so be prepared for lower temperatures (around 19 Celsius degrees). … More Lake Atitlán

Warsaw, Poland

The city on the UNESCO World Heritage list & The city with an alternative vibe Warsaw was for me a city that surprised me. And if I say that I mean that in a very good way. I’ve been to this city with my dad (we created a little tradition to do city trips to … More Warsaw, Poland

Málaga, Spain

My very first trip alone was to the beautiful city Málaga in Southern Spain. This trip was at the end of my internship last February. The weather was cold and wet in Netherlands (the place which I call home), so the 300 days of sunny days in Malaga convinced me to go immediately! And how I … More Málaga, Spain


The place you never want to leave… Utila is an island in the Caribbean and belongs to Honduras. When we were in D&D Brewery (nearby lake Yojoa, Honduras) other travelers told us that we’d probably be longer at Utila as planned. And they were right! Once you’re on the ferry to Utila everything’s changing to … More Utila

Lake Yojoa

Lake Yojoa and the area around the lake should definetely be on your to do list if you’re planning to travel Honduras. Lake Yojoa was our second stop in Honduras (after Tegucigalpa) and we stayed in the most amazing place: D&D Brewery. This was for sure one of the most amazing hostels we stayed in … More Lake Yojoa
