How to weekend in Berlin the non-touristy way

How to weekend in Berlin the non-touristy way

I love people, I really do. I think I always knew that, but since I started travelling I realised it all the more. Sure, people can be really lame at times, like when they can’t accept each others’ differences. But apart from that, they’re pretty awesome. I […]

#CzechOut Prague

#CzechOut Prague

October is a good time to go to Prague. There is something special about walking around in the streets with the fresh autumn breeze grazing your face, your hands snug in your pockets, and the red- and orange-coloured trees creating an unusual sense of warmness as […]

Trading tips: Berlin

Trading tips: Berlin

I figured every blog in the world has at least one post apologising “for being so quiet”. Here is mine… *bows head in shame* I always get so annoyed with myself for neglecting the things I love to do most – one of them being writing […]

Passing through Portugal like a local

Passing through Portugal like a local

As Easter came and went, I sat in shock at just how fast time flies. Literally more than a year ago I was in Portugal for Easter. More than a year ago! I vividly remember the departure day… running  through Bergamo airport like a mad […]

Ciao ancora da Varese!

Ciao ancora da Varese!

So, here I am. Back in Italy in the blink of an eye. I must say, I’m pretty chuffed about the fact that I’ll be dodging winter once again. That means the last time I really had a proper winter was in 2014. That’s how […]

How to avoid getting traffic fines in Italy

How to avoid getting traffic fines in Italy

I don’t know about you, but few things get me as excited as snail mail. Call me ‘behind the times’, but there’s just something exciting and romantic about getting a little (or big) envelope in the post. Even more so if it’s a notice to […]

Tiramisu tasting in Treviso

Tiramisu tasting in Treviso

Living in Italy taught me to appreciate quite a few things. Even things I thought I appreciated before, but turned out I never fully did. To name a few: Cheese, coffee, tomatoes, risotto, pasta, cannoli, gelato and, of course, Tiramisu. Never having been a fan of rich […]

The story behind the Waenhuiskrans cave

The story behind the Waenhuiskrans cave

Squeezed in the back of the car between two car seats, occupied by a toddler and a 3-month-old, off we were to Waenhuiskrans – also known as Arniston – for the weekend. An easy 2-hour drive (depending on traffic and toilet breaks) makes it a […]

Mastering the snowplough in Chamonix

Mastering the snowplough in Chamonix

I know now, love at first sight does exist. It’s called Chamonix. Roughly three hours’ drive from Milan, Chamonix is situated in the Haute-Savoie region of France. It is bordered by Switzerland and Italy and lies below the majestic Aiguilles de Chamonix mountain range which peaks […]

A Sunday cycle around Lake Varese

A Sunday cycle around Lake Varese

Having moved to Italy at the beginning of 2015, one thing was for sure: I’d have to relearn how to ride a bicycle. Whoever came up with the saying “It’ll come back to you, it’s just like riding a bike!”, needs a slap. If you […]
