My Favorite Things To Do In Stockholm

Posted on 25. Jan, 2013 by .

There’s no going around it, I’m afraid - no matter how much I try to hide it, I’m a sucker for all things Swedish. Ikea. H&M. Alexander Skarsgard. Icona Pop. The Hives. And so on. So you can imagine my excitement when I finally got to Stockholm during my Eurail.com stint across Scandinavia. I. was. [...]

Living Like a Local With @Wimdu in Amsterdam

Posted on 22. Jan, 2013 by .

When Wimdu offered to host me during my trip to Amsterdam, I was beyond excited - I’m a big fan of apartment rentals when I travel for extended periods of time, so this partnership couldn’t come at a better time. After 2 weeks in hotels, I was ready to be “home”, if only for a [...]

You guys know I’m already a big fan of the Generator Hostel chain. What’s not to like? Modern buildings, central locations, variety of rooms, great nightlife and cheap dining options. Honestly, it doesn’t get better than that. Including at the Generator Hostel Copenhagen. Generator Hostel Copenhagen: The Location View Larger Map The hostel is located [...]

Cruise in the Norway fjords? Check!

Posted on 19. Dec, 2012 by .

2012 was a year of firsts. And bucket list items. And the biggest one of all? Finally going on a cruise in the Norway fjords. This is, admittedly,  most amazing thing I have ever done, bar none. An early start at the Bergen train station to what seemingly was the middle of nowhere, and from [...]

During my recent trip in Scandinavia, I was lucky enough to spend a few days in Stockholm, the Swedish capital and the all-around coolest place in the world (both figuratively and literally). I also wanted to stay in quality, clean accommodation, but that would also fit my restricted budget. And that’s exactly what I found [...]

Chasing the comic strips in Brussels

There is no such thing as going to Brussels without a good dose of fries, chocolate, and most importantly, comic strips. That’s what I’ve been told. If it were just me, I would’ve changed the order. I’ll let you guess which one comes first for me! But indeed, I thought that going on a self-guided [...]

The Gothenburg Archipelago, Sweden - In Photos

Sometimes, when you travel, it doesn’t take much to build wonderful souvenirs. And on that day, all I needed was a short cruise, bright sunshine and the brisk Swedish air beating me around the face softly brushing against my cheeks. It. Was. Perfect. Also, there was a sled dog on board. And you know how I [...]

Delft, the quintessential Dutch village

Posted on 23. Nov, 2012 by .

When you think of the Netherlands, and Holland in particular, what pops to your mind? Canals, cobblestone streets, bicycles, cheese and gabled roofs? This is exactly what you’ll get in Delft. All these ingredients together make the ultimate Dutch village, the one we imagine, the one we read about and the one we want to [...]

Enchanted by Copenhagen’s Tivoli Gardens

“Enchanted” is quite the understatement of the year, in this case. For a North American, Halloween is a big thing. Think decorations all over town, eerie music playing, dressed up kids as well as grown-ups everywhere in sight. Not unlike Christmas, if you do Halloween, you either go big or go home. But in Europe, [...]

Why you should stay overnight in Flåm

“You’re staying in Flåm…for the night?“, he said, unsure of himself, question marks in his eyes - mirroring my own. “Yes, that’s what my itinerary says“, I replied, also a bit skeptical. After all, Flåm is famous for one thing, and one thing only - its train. There isn’t a TimeOut for Flåm, nor is there a guidebook, [...]

Bergen, the most photogenic place on the planet?

Posted on 09. Oct, 2012 by .

It’s hard not to like Bergen. It may not be Norway‘s most exciting city, nor the most historical. But I found it to be particularly interesting nonetheless, and most importantly, very pretty. It was the starting point of my love affair with Norway. And that alone is a good enough reason to go to Bergen, [...]
