Star Trek rollercoasters and winning Pokémon: A day in movie park Germany

IMG-20190626-WA0005A while back, we had dinner at La Cubanita, a Cuban tapas restaurant in our hometown. They had this deal where you could spend a bit more on your diner, in exchange for vouchers you could use to visit a theme park. The park we choose was one I always wanted to go to, but never actually visited: Movie Park Germany!

A quiet day in York

DSC04170When traveling to England last year, our first stop was York. We would spend two days here but we decided we didn’t want to run from highlight to highlight. Also, being York, there weren’t that many highlights we wanted to see, we would rather feel the atmosphere of the city. We saw a great deal of this lovely town on our first day, and decided on a quiet second day with just a few of the city’s main attractions.

For our last summer vacation, we decided to visit a couple of cities in England, namely York, Leeds and Newcastle. Let’s start at the beginning: our first day in York!

A trip down memory lane in an abandoned theme park

naamloosAs a child, I loved going to themeparks. Actually, I still do, but this is a trip down memory lane, so that doesn’t really matter right now. We’ve been to the Efteling a lot, but another theme park we often went to, mostly on schooltrips, was Het Land van Ooit, which roughly translates as ‘The land of Ever’. Which is super ironic, because it’s completely empty now. A wasteland. The park went bankrupt a couple years ago. I hadn’t really thought about it anymore, but recently I came across an article that said the park was now open to visitors. Naturally, I couldn’t wait to go!

Amsterdam: Rijksmuseum and Kroketten

DSC06890I’ve written some posts about my own country, such as stories about De Efteling and the Tulip Festival, but nothing yet about our capital: Amsterdam! A few weeks back we decided to go there on my day off, to see two museums and a bit of the city.

Why I fell in love with Venice

IMG-20180505-WA0003I absolutely fell in love with Venice. The city has been on my bucketlist forever but we decided to go there only a week before we actually did. And it was the most romantic trip. We walked in the rain at night, saw some of Venice’s highlights and took a gondola ride. In this post I’d like to share some more stories and photo’s from this mesmerizing citytrip.
