13 essentials for on the road

Even though it’s not sure yet, my boyfriend and I are planning a roadtrip to Belgium and France this year. In April we bought a ‘new’ car, so that’s why I came up with the idea to do a roadtrip this year. As I said, it’s not sure yet. We want to go on a vacation this summer, but we also want to save money for our trip next year (Thailand!). As a kid I always went on a ‘car vacation’ and I went many times to France (at least 10 times!). So I thought it’s time to go back to this lovely country and hit the road with our new car!

New in: a carry-on suitcase

For years I had to borrow a suitcase from my boyfriend’s father. Last year I bought a backpack, because carrying a suitcase to Indonesia and Australia wasn’t a option for me. Now the time has come that I bought my first suitcase. Not a big suitcase, but just a small carry-on suitcase. Next week I’m going to Poland and I take only handlugage with me. So I needed a suitcase. I could borrow it again from my ‘father in law’ (we’re not married), but I didn’t want to ask it again. Now the time has come that I needed to buy one for myself, so I don’t have to depend on someone everytime I travel. Continue Reading
