The TransMongolian Express Part 1 – Saint Petersburg

Hi Everyone!!

My Transmongolian Express trip and holidays had finally started when me and my boyfriend flew from Amsterdam to Saint Petersburg on a thursday afternoon within just 2 hours and 15 minutes. Quite fast! After picking up the luggage I had to arrange a taxi to my hotel.
There are a lot of illegal taxi drivers offering their services at the airport. I decided to take the official (and legal) taxi at the taxi stand which is very cheap as well. Our hotel was located at the big and most famous street of St. Petersburg called the Nesky Prospekt. At the Nevsky Prospekt street you find almost all the famous churches and buildings of St. Petersburg – if not, they are close by.

The Japanese Treasures of Kyoto

Hi everyone,

A city which really impressed me is Kyoto. Compared to Osaka and Tokyo (the other cities which are recommendable in Japan to visit – I did not visit yet)- Kyoto has something magical and mysterious at the same time. If you stay in Osaka, it is really easy to visit Kyoto. It is just half an hour / maybe 40 minutes by train.

Where to Eat & Drink in Capetown

Hi everyone!

As some of you know; my favorite destination in the whole world is Capetown. I like to go there at least once a year preferably for holidays, but the layovers for work are also very welcome. As I know Capetown well enough now, I have my favorite places I like to visit every time I’m back. Thereby – I get the question quite often where to go / eat / drink or do a wine tasting – So let’s write it down in a new blogpost! As Stellenbosch and Franschhoek are not that far away from Capetown I will mention my favorite spots over there as well. (all photos are taken by me, nothing is sponsored)

Hi everyone,

As I was on a small trip to Nice and Monaco and wanted to go to a cool spot where you really see some real-deal Monaco lifestyle going on. We were lucky the Anjuna Beach Club at Eze beach between Nice and Monaco still had a table available, because during weekends all tables are mostly fully booked.

Hi everyone,

This year I was lucky – I got a ‘spontaneously 6-day layover’ in Xiamen on my roster. Perfect  to head out for a trip to Guilin & Yangshuo, the countryside of China where the famous Karst mountains are located. This area is mostly known for it’s karst landscapes and impressive nature – and is a must do if you are traveling in China! I’ve been to different places in China (mostly cities), and I must say the vibe around this area feels different in a good way. (all pictures are taken by me – nothing is sponsored)

The Nature of Namibia

The Nature of Namibia

Hi everyone,

During my trips I visited a lot of photogenic spots all over the world. On of them is the Sossusvlei and Deadvlei in Namibia, Located in the Namib-Naukluft National Park. Namibia is located in Africa, (at the left-side) above South Africa and it has many different landscapes. De sossusvlei is part of the Namib desert and known about it’s red dunes. We planned this particular area at the end of our 2 week trip across the country, so we drove a lot already in a big 4W drive. (All pictures in this blogpost are taken by me – nothing is sponsored)
