I'd been in Portugal, specifically Lisbon, for four days before I actually ventured into the city centre. When I got there it lived up to everything I was hoping for, and more! I thought perhaps it may feel like a typical Spanish city, but it was so much more than that- arty and unique, with … Continue reading Looking Round Lisbon!
The Fresh Prince of Belém (Lisbon)
Our apartment was conveniently located in the middle of Lisbon city centre, and Belém, home to the very impressive Belém tower. As we had big evening plans, we decided to use our daytime hours to wander on down and explore all that this area had to offer. Before I get into the juice, I'd like … Continue reading The Fresh Prince of Belém (Lisbon)
A Sizzling Few Days In Palma
On a miserable February day me and a couple of friends decided we needed some sun, so after a quick search on skyscanner we found flights to Palma, Mallorca for only £22! We had no idea what to expect but what an amazing city it is! I’d been to Bilbao in Spain just over half […]
Dortmund- Drinks, Dancing and Drangsal!
Living in Nijmegen means I’m pretty close to the German border. It’s actually possible to cycle there in only about an hour if you put pedal to the metal, unlike what Dan and I did recently. The nearest city is Kleve, but for this adventure I was going to Dortmund with my German friend Andreas. He […]
Street Art and Neat Architecture In Eindhoven
Eindhoven is probably the second best city in the Netherlands for modern architecture, after Rotterdam, of course. The bus from the central station to the airport guides you round the cities very best, including a museum that looks like a UFO, and miniature versions of London's Gherkin. Sadly, this time I wasn't in Eindhoven for … Continue reading Street Art and Neat Architecture In Eindhoven
Pedal-Boats And Rain Coats in Amsterdam
On Friday we braved the rain (which was torrential) and made our way to the Dutch capital- Amsterdam! It's a rather expensive train away from Nijmegen, albeit not a long one... It was my friend Dan's first time in the city, and his number one priority was to see the sights on foot, so this … Continue reading Pedal-Boats And Rain Coats in Amsterdam
My 5 Favourite Cities In Europe
I've visited a fair few cities over the past year- 21 to be precise, and that's only including ones I've been to for the first time, not in my home country. I've enjoyed every single one, but some more than others, so I thought I'd run down my top 5. 5th Place- Rotterdam, Netherlands Living … Continue reading My 5 Favourite Cities In Europe
Get To Know Me: My Suburb
So! I've shown you my room, meaning naturally the next step is to leave the comfort of my bed and show you where about's I live. I live in a suburb of Nijmegen called Hatert, and to be quite honest there is very little here except from two shops and what I'm about to show … Continue reading Get To Know Me: My Suburb
