For the ones of you who have been following this blog, you already know that I’m a huge bookworm and that my favourite city in the Netherlands is Utrecht. What better way to combine the two of them, than by visiting the best local bookstore and the library? Both have just relocated to amazing venues, so when I visited the botanical gardens, of course I had to go into the city center as well, to check them out!Continue reading “Utrecht for Bookworms”
Just before the borders to the rest of Europe opened for us, we did a little bit of exploring our own country. Maastricht had been on my list for a while. I had been there once before and remembered the gorgeous bookstore that I really wanted to pay a visit to another time. And so we did!Continue reading “The most gorgeous bookstore in Maastricht”
For our four year anniversary, we decided on a romantic getaway weekend to Venice. We went for a short trip and unlike other trips, we hadn’t planned a lot. There were only two things that we really wanted to do, and that was take a gondola ride and go to ‘the most beautiful bookshop in the world’…
After we did some sightseeing and had lunch, we decided to go for the gondola tour. There are a lot of place were you can go aboard, most famously of course the Grand Canal. Most people start there, so if you’re visiting Venice in the high season, make sure to find another spot so you don’t have to wait (too long) in line. You can find the boarding points easily, because you can recognize them by the red and white striped poles at the sides of the canals.
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!Continue reading “Citytrip Dublin (part two)”
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?
