Europe

Since starting my one year trip around the world, I really wanted to see is all the amazing wonders in our planet. Back in 2007, the New7Wonders foundation declared a list of the 7 New Wonders of the World. Immediately, I knew I had to visit each of those man-made wonders during my journey…
While visiting my friends in Amsterdam, I took a quick trip down to Eindhoven to visit one last friend in the Netherlands. Her name is Manon. Karen and myself met her while travelling in Kota Kinabalu in Malaysia. In comparison to my friends in Amsterdam and Rotterdam, Manon is also from a completely different…
After saying goodbye to my friends at Rotterdam, my next stop is the famous city of Amsterdam. There, I will be visiting my friends, Asti and Mathijis, whom I met while travelling in Drakensberg, South Africa. And of course, I will be exploring the city Amsterdam. Dropping off my stuff and joining a city…
After visiting Bruges in Belgium, my next travel destination during my one year trip around the world is Rotterdam. Here, I will be visiting a dutch couple who I befriended while travelling to South Africa. They were very kind to invite me to come visit them in their home and show me around Amsterdam’s…

How did I fare with my Liechtenstein and Switzerland spending when I travelled through these two neighbouring countries? Thankfully, better than I expected! Of course it helps that I have a friend that lives in Switzerland who was nice enough to let me stay over at her place and gave me food to eat….
To be quite honest, I’ve always assumed that Paris is one of those overrated cities that people visit just cause everyone is doing it. Dubbed, the city of love, many women hint to their significant other that they must take them there so they can experience a higher level of romance (and of course,…
Switzerland is well known for the Alps and for being very picturesque. Sufficient to say, I was very excited when Lavinia’s (my sister’s friend who’s living in Switzerland) husband, Sandro, planned a road trip for us to go through the Swiss Alps and to Lake Lucerne. Our road trip started in a small town…
After traveling through Bratislava, my next destination was to visit a friend living in Windisch, Switzerland. At first, I thought this small town won’t have much in terms of tourist attractions. My assumption was that it would be a nice little town for relaxing before heading off to the next country. Was I wrong! Surprisingly,…
