My Favourite Nature Spots #1 | The Netherlands

Topic for another time, but long distance relationships come with their perks. Discovering more of the Dutch land every other month is just one of them!

It seems that disconnecting and plunging into nature isn’t hard to do in NL, with the abundance of parks and forests. Do you wonder where to bask in the tranquility, even if only dropping by Amsterdam? Here’s a word or two about some of my favourite places I’ve visited the past year.

Waterfallin’ for Iceland… on a budget

A feeling of extreme desire towards a certain destination. You’ve visualised your experience, yet you never really thought about the execution of it. Thinking, it won’t happen ‘on-the-days’ but rather in the distant future. What’s a place that immediately popped into your mind?

Iceland was that kind of place for me.

A Month in Sweden | Linköping

Living in Sweden. Yep, this isn’t just me frantically telling everyone about my 2018 vision board (THIS HAS BEEN ON IT!). Remember how I told you it’s going to happen this year? Well, let me tell you – a little bit of law of attraction blended with visualisation and a good-old, last-minute letter of motivation can go a long way honey.

Buckle in for a thing or two about what your girl learnt and loved about this kick-ass experience (because unforgettable is not strong enough, and a lil’ basic) *pretends she ain’t basic*.

48 Hours in Luxembourg

A local friend, £15 return flight tickets = weekend of catch ups and discoveries in the city of Luxembourg. Having friends scattered across the globe is a real perk. I didn’t think I would get to travel much during my final year, but thankfully I was wrong. An invite from my Lux babe came my way, so I didn’t think twice about discovering this [very] little European gem. Here is what my quick weekend away consisted of (and it’s more than counting how many banks I saw across the city… ;)). When in Luxembourg, make sure you do the following… Continue reading

Falling in love with Stockholm, Sweden

Karolina finally made it to Sweden… and, I say finally, because the desire to visit struck me when I was only eight years old, after reading The Children of The Noisy Village, written by the Swedish author, Astrid Lindgren. Although I wasn’t visiting Bullerby, the village the book was based in, Stockholm has given me a taste of what the ‘hype’ surrounding Sweden is about. So, what do I think Stockholm is (partially) about?

10 Things I Love About Brussels

Karolina turns 21 and she’s surprised with a cheeky weekend in Brussels! I remember choosing Bruges over Brussels during my Interrail in 2015 – ‘there’s nothing exciting about Brussels!’, I thought… I couldn’t be more wrong about this diverse city. Are you wondering what I loved (because yes, I ended up falling in love over and over again) about it? Read on! Here are my absolute favourite things about Bruxelles.  Continue reading
