Two days in Amsterdam: the best places to see and visit

I just returned from two days in Amsterdam and I already feel the urge to book a train ticket to this lovely city again! I love the crooked houses, the canals and bridges, the many trendy restaurants and the people! Last year I stayed for 3 days and explored the city by bike. That way I could reach more areas of Amsterdam that were less touristic. I got a taste of the real Amsterdam and I am hooked ever since! Luckily it only takes 75 minutes by train from Antwerp. So it was easy to return for two days in Amsterdam again to find beautiful photo spots and eat delicious food!

Southwest Iceland Road Trip: Itinerary for one week

I spent one week road tripping Southwest Iceland and it was one of the best travel experiences I ever had. Everywhere I drove the landscape was simply magnificent. I don’t think there is a country with more scenic roads than Iceland. One moment you’re driving through a lava field on your way to a waterfall, the other you’re driving along snow capped volcanoes and glaciers. With only 300 000 inhabitants, you’re never stuck in traffic. It’s a true pleasure to drive the Icelandic roads, even the bumpy dirt roads leading to gorgeous hidden gems on this fantastic island! This is my detailed one week Southwest Iceland road trip adventure!

How to visit Petra: everything you need to know

Petra, “the lost city” in Jordan, was on my bucket list for a long time! Not only is it one of the New 7 Wonders of the World, the caves, temples and tombs that are carved in the white and red sandstone speak wildly to the imagination. Petra still keeps a lot of secrets. Only 15 percent of the city is uncovered, which is the part you can visit today. This means that 85 percent is still hidden underground. Petra must have been massive since the area that is open to the public, is already quite extensive! That’s why a good preparation to visit the city is really necessary. There are so many trails and architectural gems to see, that it can be overwhelming to decide what to do. That’s why I share my personal experience and advise with you in this “How to visit Petra” travel guide!
