Antwerp 2017

I got a another chance at seeing Antwerp and the day was just perfect. The sun was out and there was no crazy wind. I did not take as many pictures as I did the last time I was there last Fall but the city still remains one of my favorites so far. Continue reading

Keukenhof Gardens

It’s springtime, which means a trip to the Keukenhof had to happen. The Keukenhof Gardens in Lisse open up their gates each spring for a limited amount of time. It is also known as the Garden of Europe and there is a reason for that. The garden, which literally translates to Kitchen Garden, has approximately 7 million flower bulbs that bloom and cover an area of 79acres. Continue reading

Lamu

A town in Lamu Island which is part of an archipelago, it’s a place like no other. If you want to decompress and get away from the hustle and bustle of city life, this is the place to be. It felt like a place where time stood still. No cars (no traffic!), donkeys all over the narrow streets and obviously their manure too. They use dhows and donkeys as their main form of transportation and it all felt so surreal. Continue reading

Maastricht & Antwerp

My last weekend in Europe, I went down to Maastricht seeing that I had never been there and my friend goes to school there. It was the perfect opportunity to get to explore the Netherlands although i got there too late to actually enjoy the city.

The streets also look so lovely during fall/winter period. The lights make you enjoy walking in the dark. It’s absolutely lovely. Continue reading

Amsterdam

I know, it has been a while since I put up a post but there was a reason for that. I have been away for a short holiday with my sisters and I just got back home. I can’t believe it’s over! It was such an amazing break even though I was freezing half of the time. I love Amsterdam so much and the weather has never put me off from it. Except when it rains and my hair is not braided, that pisses me off. Or when it rains and my face is made up. Continue reading
