Antwerp, Belgium

Antwerp! The fourth Belgian city I have visited, and less than an hour by train from Brussels. My sister was arriving in Antwerp to go to a metal music festival close by, so I used that as a reason to check out what Antwerp has to offer. Wandering around Antwerp, I wasn't as taken by [...]

Strasbourg, France

Can you believe I was in Strasbourg for a week, took along my DSLR, and only took photos with my old Samsung J5 phone?! I regret it immensely... The adorable buildings, the canals surrounded by nature, the delicious food...all not done justice, so you will have to go yourself. To be fair, I was there [...]

And by Greens, I mean [...]

German Quirks

After 5 months more or less living in Berlin, I had fallen in love with a city (again). Half of me didn't want to leave, half of me was excited for the next adventure (hiya Brussels! - I will give an update sooner or later) Maybe one day I will return for longer? Who knows, [...]
