Travel with me to Oia | Santorini travel guide

With its beautiful views and golden sunsets it quickly became very evident to me why Santorini, and specifically Oia, is one of the most photographed places in the world. It sure is a place that lives up to the hype! In the whitewashed streets of Oia you will find photo opportunities everywhere you look. Since some places are private and hard to enter, I definitely recommend carefully selecting where to stay when travelling to the iconic cycladic island of Santorini.

Copenhagen through the eyes of a local | Travel Guide

Pin me!

Just because you live somewhere doesn’t mean there never is more to see or that you cannot be a tourist in your own city so exploring the city of Copenhagen is just what I did yesterday when a friend travelled to visit. And here are some of my favorite finds – some old and some just discovered. For more places in Copenhagen see my first travel guide here.

The country of fairytales | Slovenia travel guide

If there is a country I have been to that is taken straight out of a fairytale then it’s Slovenia. I came to this country with high expectations but Slovenia exeeded even them all. It even exeeded my wildest dreams of how much beauty can be found in one country. This country has so many beautiful places and is full of colors, is very eco-friendly, has some beautiful mountains and is in general a very green and harmonic country.
Having been there I really fail to see why Slovenia isn’t more known as tourist destination and more traveled to.

Magical moments in Poland | NANAN Patisserie

It seems to me like there is one trend that doesn’t go out of style. And I’m ever so grateful for that. Guess what it is? Millennial pink. Therefore the NANAN Patisserie in Wroclaw, Poland was nothing short of a dream to visit during my trip around Europe. This small patisserie that only seats 14 people is all made of blush pink velvet and designed by Polish designers BUCK.STUDIO. Walls, chairs, everything. Almost the cakes, too. Their menu consists of macarons, cakes and their famous eclairs (which I can HIGHLY recommend). See the pictures below for a magical glimpse into this place…Read More

Travel guide | A day in Copenhagen

Do you have one of those places in your city/country/nearby you feel like you just have to show someone when they visit you? I have for sure. And for me that place is Copenhagen. So when one of my non-Danish friends visited I took her to Copenhagen and where I took her, I want to take you as well. So if you are going to Copenhagen soon be sure to see some of these places yourself. Some of the places are classics and over-touristy, others are small, hidden gems located outside of the regular tourist spots. So here are my recommendations:

What living in Thailand for 2 months was really like…

God calls us to go. To go into all the nations (Matthew 28). And this summer God called me to Thailand for 2 months. The time in Thailand was a part of the the last phase of the DTS called outreach.

So what did I do in Thailand you might wonder?

First we stayed in Bangkok for a couple days for orientation where we learned a lot about the culture and belief of this country known as “the land of smiles”. A country that is also known for the line “to be Thai is to be buddhist”. To get to know this country we went to downtown Bangkok and visited temple after temple. Not that we had to search to find them, they were everywhere.

Travel guide | Athens, Greece

Pin me for later

Travelling to Athens, Greece was such a cool experience I will remember for a long time. Especially since I am such a giant history nerd who loves to read about ancient cultures and the history of other countries. Athens is one of the world’s oldest cities with its recorded history spanning over 3400 years and is home to more than 3 million people today. A lot of the things in Western culture comes from this place. Things like our literacy and written communication, school system, welfare system, mathematics, philosophy, democracy and the list could go on.
