    The Niagara Falls were the second stop of my trip through Canada and the USA, and I was beyond excitement about finally visiting these famous and amazing falls. During my stay at the falls I constantly saw these helicopters rides over the falls, that’s when I thought, I need to be on one of those, I want to see the Niagara Falls from above.

    Philadelphia had been on my list for a long time, mainly for two reasons. The first reason being the important role the city of Philadelphia had in the creation of what we now know as the United States of America. The second reason being that this city was used for the famous Hollywood movie Rocky Balboa. A lot of scenes were shot here, which makes it fun and interesting to walk through this city and movie set!

    Experiencing the Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights, is topping the bucketlist of many travelers. It was on top of mine for a couple of years, until I decided to just go for it. Destinations where you can spot the Northern Lights are not the cheapest, but it is worth every penny, trust me. These tips for chasing the Northern Lights in Tromso will help you making the most of this epic travel adventure.

    After a few recent trips to Scandinavia I became a real fan of these Northern European countries, the people, the food, the lovely cities and the most beautiful nature.
    Although Scandinavian countries are expensive, I just really like them. After my weekend in Stockholm, I became curious to visit Gothenburg, their second-largest city.

  • Some destinations are on everyone’s bucket list. The Niagara Falls are such a destination, every traveler has them on their bucket list and wants to see them at least once. For me, that was certainly the case. I had traveled the western parts of Canada before, but because of the Niagara Falls, I also really wanted to explore the eastern parts of Canada.

    Travelling the East coast of Canada was one of the many trips I did last year. Only knowing the city in connection with the Titanic disaster was my main reason for to visit Halifax on the far North East of Canada’s coastline. A beautiful drive takes you from Quebec right to Halifax, where there are much more tourist attractions and things to do than just the Titanic stories.

    Traveling is all about making choices, time is always too short and there is way too much to see. At least that’s the struggle I always face when travelling. When I decided I wanted to travel the Eastern parts of Canada and the USA, in three weeks, I knew it was all about making choices again. Therefore I chose to use CityPASS and these are my experiences.

  • I visited Canada last September during the so-called Indian Summer. It’s when all the leaves of the trees, especially the maple leaf, start to colour. Algonquin Provincial Park was one of the few nature parks I visited during my recent trip through Canada, but a must as Indian Summer here is just amazing! Autumn is the most colorful and wonderful season to travel to East Canada.

    After quite some city trips to Dusseldorf, London, Gothenburg and Barcelona over the past six months, I really felt the urge for an outdoor, nature trip. After some research on the internet I ended up looking at Davos. Davos is a very famous winter destination. However, checking out the Davos tourism tips on the internet I immediately became very excited about visiting Davos in summer. I decided to make Davos Switzerland my next destination, without any regrets as you will discover reading this Davos travel blog full of tips.

    As a traveler, the Fairmont le Chateau Frontenac has been on my bucket list of places I have always wanted to stay at least once. When I started planning my most recent trip through the Eastern parts of Canada and the USA, Quebec obviously had to be one of my stops. So this year I was finally able to stay at the Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac, truly a dream come true! The Château Frontenac is so much more than just a hotel, it is an icon of the city of Quebec. Keep reading if you want to find out everything about this fairytale castle hotel.

    England is home to some of the biggest football teams in the world and six of the Premier League football teams have their home ground in London. Wembley Stadium is without doubt one of the most impressive and most important stadiums in football history. The historic World Cup final of 1966 was played here, when England became World Champion. But also the ‘greatest live performance in the history of rock’ by Queen during Live Aid 1985 took place at Wembley.

    Even though Dusseldorf is only an hour away from where I live, I had actually never visited this city before. I only ever passed it on my way to Dusseldorf Airport, to catch a flight to new destinations.

    My most recent Canada trip also brought me to the vibrant city of Montreal. Searching for Montreal accommodation for my travels, for me it’s important that my hotel is located on a prime location in the city I visit. This lead me to Le Centre Sheraton in Montreal Downtown. With their newly renovated Club Rooms and its location right in the middle of downtown, this had to be my place to stay.

    The holiday season is coming, the most wonderful time of the year is almost here. I love Christmas, which is what made me think of a Christmas city trip. Throughout Europe many cities have Christmas markets and special decorations this time of the year. I wanted to visit a city where I had never been before and which is famous for its Christmas markets and celebrations. There was only one city that ticked all the boxes; Vienna!

    Canada’s capital Ottawa was without any doubt one of my stops on my itinerary. The only thing I knew was that I really wanted to visit Parliament Hill, to see where all the important decisions are made in Canada. But after spending three lovely days in Ottawa I left the city, impressed by everything I did, saw and experienced those past three days.

  •  

    Lisbon has been on my travel bucket list for a very long time. This summer I decided it was about time to visit Lisbon, the second oldest capital city in the world (after Athens). Lisbon is built on seven hills, with the São Jorge hill being the highest of the city. Located on the summit of this hill is the São Jorge Castle, overlooking the city with some breathtaking views. On top of this highest hill, and right next to the castle you’ll find (if you search well) Solar Do Castelo, so be prepared for a climb whenever you go to the hotel! In this blog you can read about my stay, a complete hotel review.

    My first visit to Washington DC was three years ago, on a day trip from New York City. Back then I thought it was my only chance visiting the capital of the USA, so I didn’t wanna miss it. Looking back at it now, such organized day trips, with limited time for yourself to explore, it’s not my thing at all.

    After Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, Dusseldorf Airport is my favorite airport to travel from. Dusseldorf is located only an hour away from where I live, so it is very easily accessible for me, and offers all international connections I can think of. Something that always catches my attention when I travel from Dusseldorf Airport is the Sheraton Hotel. When you arrive at Dusseldorf airport by car, you can’t miss the large Sheraton letters covering the P3 parking lot.

    This new, modern and luxurious Van der Valk hotel opened its doors to the public less than a year ago, in April 2018. Opening Hotel Tilburg also meant the first Van der Valk Exclusive hotel in the province of Brabant (the Netherlands), a unique happening! I was very curious to this brand new hotel and the city of Tilburg and left this place very enthusiastic just two days later. Are you just as curious to this newest Van Der Valk Exclusive hotel? Keep reading about my experiences in this review.

    As I usually have an early flight out of Schiphol Airport, I always book a Schiphol hotel, to avoid the long trip from my home to the airport during the night, and to have a relaxed start of my travels.  I always travel by car to the airport, so for me it’s important that the Schiphol hotel offers parking for my car as well.
