Why My Holiday in Algarve, Portugal, Was Exactly What I Needed

My trip to Algarve, Portugal must be the 2nd best holiday I’ve had so far. I’m even tempted to say it was the best thing that ever happened, but it’s still Dubai that still holds the #1 holiday spot in my heart. However, it was exactly what I needed, when I needed it and with a group of people who made me feel welcome.… Continue Reading


Amsterdam, Day 4 | Last Day & Final Thoughts

Last day in Amsterdam… oh no how did this trip end so quickly? I woke up feeling like there are so many things in this gorgeous city I have yet to see… For a minute I was almost considering coming back at some point. I did mention this in my Amsterdam Day 3 blog post, but I’ll say it again. Amsterdam has so much history and culture, I did not expect it!… Continue Reading


Amsterdam, Day 3 | Museum Hopping!

Last full day in Amsterdam, better make it count! On my third day in this gorgeous city, I decided to go museum hopping. I have to admit, before I went to Amsterdam I didn’t know that this city had so much history and culture. It seemed like everyone I talked to just went to coffee shops. Now you know I tried a brownie from a coffee shop on my first night and I was not impressed.… Continue Reading


Amsterdam, Day 2 | Madame Tussauds, Canal Cruise, Red Light District & More!

On my second day in Amsterdam I woke up bright and early. Yeah, I was quite tired after traveling on my first day and walking around the city. But I was also excited to see more of this gorgeous place. I quickly put on a full face of makeup and a casual dress and I was out the door. A few days before my trip I bought combo tickets for Madame Tussauds, Amsterdam Dungeon and a canal cruise, so I figured I might as well do them all in one day.… Continue Reading


Amsterdam, Day 1 | Exploring and Swinging Over The Edge at A’Dam Lookout

I always dreamed of going to The Netherlands. Even though when I was younger I wanted to see Rotterdam, over the past few years visiting Amsterdam has been high on my bucket list. So a few months ago I decided to do it.

I knew that if I wouldn’t do it this summer, I would have to put it off for another year.… Continue Reading


Hammamet, Tunisia | How Did I End Up There and Was It Good?

When I told people that I am going to Hammamet, Tunisia, most of them seemed a bit confused. I found that they had lots of questions along the lines of… ‘Why Tunisia?’, ‘Didn’t they have a terrorist attack there last year?’, ‘How do you always end up going to Arab countries?’ or ‘Is it safe there? Aren’t you scared?’. All I wanted was a nice, relaxing beach holiday, yet that rose a lot of questions from the people around me.… Continue Reading

My Travel Makeup Bag: This is Why It’s Big But Actually Practical

Can you imagine that when I travel my makeup bag is one of the reasons why I always have to buy a checked in luggage? Yes, I am the kind of person that will always put on makeup before leaving the house. Especially when I go on holidays and I want to take a lot of pictures (and selfies) to have as memories.… Continue Reading


5 Odd Things I Do While Traveling | How Many Are YOU Guilty Of?

I love traveling. Probably a lot more than I love other things. However, I couldn’t help but notice that there are a few odd or bad habits I have when I am on holiday. I am pretty sure it’s nothing uncommon. And I bet you do some of these things too. How many odd habits are you guilty of when you go on a trip?… Continue Reading


Hurghada, Egypt | Excellent and Really Cheap Luxury Beach Holiday

For me, there’s nothing better than a beach holiday. As you might recall from my Cairo travel post, the idea to go to Egypt was quite random. I wanted another break and Egypt was one of the hottest places to go to in October. So I started looking at some hotels/resorts that wouldn’t be too far from the airport, and that’s how I decided to go to Hurghada.… Continue Reading
