Why not be a tourist in your own country? I’m certain there are a lot of beautiful or amazing things to do there that you haven’t done yet. I wrote down six things I wanted to do in the Netherlands and when I posted this list, I almost immediately came up with some other new things I haven’t done before. Time for a second list!

Ghost Stories in Kilkenny

DSC02010We didn’t just book a vacation to Dublin, we wanted to explore Ireland a little bit more than that. On the first few days we had seen Dublin and Glendalough in the Wicklow mountains. After Dublin, we would stay one night in Kilkenny before traveling to Cork, where we would stay for another two days before going home again. Our day in Kilkenny was short, but definitely worth a blogpost!

Guinness Lake, Ireland

On our fourth and last day in Dublin, we decided to take a tour to see some of Ireland’s beautiful nature. We had planned to cycle to Powerscourt Estate but it was raining and also, the Irish drive on ‘the wrong side of the road’ and that’s just difficult. So instead, we looked for tours and found a great tour with PaddyWagon, that would take us to see Glendalough.

Cat art and zebra’s

Your own country can be as amazing as a place far, far away. Last week I posted a list of six things that I still want to do in my own country, to visit places and museums I’ve never been before. One of the things on my list was going to Vianen and see cat art in the Stedelijk Museum.

A rainy day in Dublin

Dublin Castle

On our first two days in Dublin, the weather was incredible. The third day, not so much. But we didn’t mind. It rains a lot in Ireland (as it does in the Netherlands, by the way), it’s just part of the experience. And our third day was as amazing as the first two, if not better.

Dublin is such an amazing city. On our first day, we saw the Garden of Remembrance, went to the Dublin writer’s museum, bought some books at Chapters, had tea at the Tea Garden and had the best fish and chips of the city. Now, time for a little overview on our second day there!

Six things I want to do in my own country

143C112D-5A20-423D-A6E4-546813DF226A

Last week I posted something about how you can manage to travel and see the world, when you also have a (fulltime) job. One of the things I listed was that you can also travel your own country or your own neighbourhood. Find new things to explore, new restaurants or museums. You probably haven’t tried all of them yet. I figured, why not give an example and look for things in the Netherlands that I still want to do. Time for a bucketlist!

Citytrip: Dublin

Molly Malone, Dublin, Ireland

Hi, how are ya? Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! Last year we visited a few places in Ireland and it was absolutely dreamy! We started off in Dublin, where we stayed a couple of days. It is such a lovely city and already I am dreaming to go back. The city is small but oh so lovely, with interesting museums and beautiful architecture. What would be a better time to show you some pictures of Dublin than on Saint Paddy’s?

A dream come true

DSC04911I saved the best for last. Of course, one of the main reasons we went to Lapland, was to see the Northern Lights. The predictions weren’t that good, so the week before we went, I was kinda scared that we wouldn’t be able to see them. But we were so incredibly lucky, because we saw them. Three nights in a row ♥

REINDEER

DSC04953I must have taken about 500 pictures of reindeer on our trip. On our second day in Lapland, we went to a Reindeer Corral and there were a lot of reindeer we could pet and feed. I don’t think I have ever seen these animals before and it was so cool to see them up close. There were some cute little babies, some ‘holy’ white ones and one that was a tad aggressive and tried to steal my scarf…
