5 things you need to do in Copenhagen

Last summer I decided to go on a small road trip through Europe. I had no job at that time and because I had some money saved, I was able to go. Copenhagen was really high on my bucket list, so I decided this was the perfect time to go. I had been to Denmark twice before, but never to Copenhagen. Maybe that was the reason why I really wanted to visit this city, but I have to say my visit was definitely worth it. I really loved the atmosphere is this city and it feels really modern, even though it has its historical sights. I’ve made a top five list of things you definitely need to do in Copenhagen. So here you go! Continue Reading

Citytrips Europe

What am I planning to do on my Europe roadtrip?

Because of the fact I didn’t plan anything for this summer and of the fact my boyfriend is away for two weeks, I really wanted to do something with my time. Now as you know, I love to travel, so I decided to search for something on a budget. Plane tickets are quite expensive in peak season, so I searched for an alternative and found a bus company which travels through Europe. The bus tickets are really cheap and all the way to Luxembourg I only pay €127,-. In Luxembourg I will meet my boyfriend and we have the last couple of days together in Luxembourg and Bruxelles. So what am I planning to do and to see on my Europe roadtrip?

bremen

Bremen: 1 day (layover stop, otherwise it was such a long bus ride)

To see:
• Rathaus
• St. Petri Dom
• Haus der Bürgerschaft

I only have one day in Bremen, so I’m going to walk through the city and try to see as much as possible.

I’ve been already in Berlin a few years ago. So the most touristic attractions I have seen already, so I’m not going to visit that all again. I want to explorer the city more and don’t plan as much. I just want to feel the city vibe.

This is just a guide line for me what I’m going to do the next couple of weeks. Some things I won’t do and probably I will do other things too. Traveling is about enjoyment and doesn’t need to be planned perfectly. Now I just have the highlights of the cities all in one post. So it’s easy for me to decide what I want to do, if I have ‘nothing’ to do. After this trip I will tell you what I did in each city and what I recommend to do if you are there.

My trip starts tomorrow, so if you want to be up-to-date about my trip, please follow me on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. I’ll update as much as possible, so you get a great impression of the cities! Do you have other recommendations for things to do or to see in those cities?

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! I already made a list with 13 road essentials and now I’m going to share those essentials with you. Continue Reading
