europe SZ Wales

A short trip into Wales.

Dragons, King Arthur, medieval castles, prehistoric tombs, a rugged coastline and an unintelligible language: for me, Wales always had this certain mythical feel to it. Since I visited the Pembrokeshire coast with my parents maybe 20 years ago or so, I just knew I had to come back one day. Even though Pembrokeshire was stunning, it simply isn’t representative for the rest …

A weekend away in The Veluwe (The Netherlands).

These last weeks have been very busy and stressful for me. For a teacher, the end of May is a period of making new exams, correcting lots of tests and assignments and reading your students’ theses. This means working long nights, all work and no play. And this for 3-4 weeks. Now that this period has come to an …

Foodtruckfestival Cuisine Machine

An appetizer of mealworms to start off our day! Last week I got a message in my mailbox from the province of Zeeland, announcing that there was a foodtruckfestival in Vlissingen this weekend: Cuisine Machine.

We’ve both had our share of wildlife encounters: from a herd of wild horses in Sardegna, over a …

The crown jewel of Slovenia.

Judging from the number of blog posts we’ve already written about Slovenia, I think it’s fair to say by now that this country is a treasure-chest of travel highlights. Whether you are looking for some ancient culture, you are in need of some stress-reducing nature exploration or you just fancy a pleasant city break, it’s all there. Slovenia …

The windmills at Kinderdijk

The typical Holland windmills at Kinderdijk. Just half an hour drive from Rotterdam, one of the largest cities in The Netherlands and well worth a visit, you find the windmills at Kinderdijk. We made a stop on our way south from our extended stay in Amsterdam. It was on our way home and Unesco Worldheritage, …

Zeeland

The Delta works at Neeltje Jans. Though Zeeland is the region in The Netherlands most close to us, it was a region we hadn’t discovered yet. Maarten’s mum turns 70 soon and so the whole family set out for 5 days to explore Zeeland together. We must say that we were pleasantly surprised by the …
