End of May is a perfect time of the year to explore the city of Marseille, its surrounding islands and the breathtaking calanques under a nice warm sun. I landed in Marseille Airport and took a return shuttle (thanks again to the lady from the ticket office who asked if I was a student!) to the train station Marseille Saint-Charles (13,40€). What to do in … Continue reading 3 days in Marseille
In Northern Europe, when you say you’re going to Madeira and you’re young, people spontaneously tell you: “Why are you going there? It’s just full of old (German) people!” Well people can continue thinking this as much as they want, good for them, it will mean less people in this gorgeous island with breathtaking landscapes, turquoise waters, great walks in the middle of nowhere and … Continue reading 4 days in Madeira
Hunting down the sun for 3 days in Andalusia, my first stop was in Malaga (thanks Ryanair!) I arrived on a late Thursday afternoon with the fast train from the airport. I got off in Málaga Centro Alameda (2€70). The good thing about Spain is that the shops are open late. Finally got a bit of time to go to the sales!

I escaped from Brussels for 4 days of well-deserved holidays in Barcelona last July. I had been to Barcelona many years before and this time was much more about relaxing and drinking mojitos than visiting (anyway it was way to warm!). Equipped with my favourite guide and my never-failing (mh!) instinct, here are my recommendations to make your taste buds happy! Eating in Barcelona Our best … Continue reading Eating and drinking mojitos in Barcelona
During my Erasmus in Rome, I had the opportunity to spend four amazing days in Sicily. As my parents are planning to go soon, I’ve done a small recap for them that I’m sharing with you today! Their plan is to drive down from Belgium to Genova to take a ferry to Palermo. After exploring the island, they will travel back along the West Italian coast.
