Amsterdam gracht at sunset
Winter 2013. I visited Amsterdam for 3 days between Christmas and New Year. Even though the weather wasn't great, freezing cold, greyish with plenty of rain on the first day, I managed to see and capture as much as I could of the capital of the Netherlands. Amsterdam is well...
Me digging at the Durotriges Dig
Who doesn’t love a mysterious story about people and their lives long passed. When people asked me what I wanted to study when I was older, I would always answer archaeologist. The intriguing stories from Egyptians, Greek and Romans, and later the Aztec and native Indians, enthralled me beyond measure....
Dark Hedges, Northern Ireland
Very popular with wedding photographers and Game of Thrones fans, the Dark Hedges is one of the most photographed places in Northern Ireland. Since we opted for the Giant’s Causeway tour instead of a Game of Thrones tour on our second day in Northern Ireland, we missed out on a...

Founded in 1209 and consisting of 31 constituent colleges, Cambridge University is consistently ranked among the Top 5 Universities in the World. Apart from visiting the colleges, there are plenty...

3 Days in Romantic Venice
Venice…the magical city once called home by the womaniser Casanova and the talented painters Titian, Tintoretto and Veronese, is either loved or hated by its visitors. I happen to adore it. I fell in love with Venice the first time I visited the Italian city in 2001. For 8 hours, I meandered through the cosy...
Detail gondola Venice
It’s not a secret that a visit to Venice, one of the world’s most beautiful cities, is not kind to your wallet. Even when your wage is enough to comfortably pay off a mortgage and you’re able to take several holidays a year, you will feel the difference when checking your...
Road Trip Pemberton, Canada
This month, I’m looking back at my travels of the past 12 months. I wrote about my 3 favourite citytrips this year in my previous post and now it’s time to reveal my 3 favourite road trips from this year. I love exploring a country by car; you can stop wherever you want and discover areas you otherwise...
Arc de Triomphe, Paris
To many, Paris is regarded as one of the most romantic cities in the world. However, after visiting the French capital twice, I don’t consider it any more romantic than other European cities such as London, Amsterdam, Vienna or Rome. This doesn’t mean I don’t like the city, on the...
Winter is a great time to visit the capital of England, especially over Christmas time. Cosy Christmas markets, streets decorated with holiday ornaments and Christmas songs playing everywhere you go. If you’re lucky, the city might even have some snow. Your visit, however, can take a turn for the worse if...
