BigSur15

Speak the words ‘Big Sur’ to any American, and he’ll have a mini orgasm. Big Sur is seen as the prettiest route in the US. The road, Route 1, takes you from Carmel to about San Simeon, curving itself around hills, slides past deserted beaches and blows you away with perfect panorama’s that looks like they walked out of movie scenes. So we did it too. Warning: You’ll want to go there after this post.

Airbnbanimatie

I was a bit hesitant at first… why would I want to sleep in a strangers house? Would I have privacy? Would it be clean? And safe? I clung to my trusted budget hotel room. But ever since I’ve tried Airbnb I don’t want anything else anymore. It’s become my go to spot to search for accommodation in a city, and I recommend it to everyone. Now that I’ve used Airbnb four times (Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, Paris and Edinburgh), I felt it was time to share my experience with you! These are five reasons everybody should use Airbnb!

Pasaia2

Guuuuuys, I’m dramatically behind on my  blogposts… It’s only been a week since I was in Spain and now I’m in Athens already! And I still have SO MUCH to write about Gipuzkoa, the beautiful northern province of Spain. Because there is so much to say! First off the cooking workshop with fish, an important aspect of the Basque kitchen. And if you know me, then changes are that you’ve stumbled upon me with my cheeks filled with fish. I’m definitely a fish lover. Even in my vegetarian-phase I ate fish. And so I walked into restaurant Ziaboga in Pasaia, ready to take on the world. I ended up on a rollercoaster of emotions.

City Guide Edinburgh

Edinburghintro

Sadly I only spent two days in Edinburgh, a city I decided to visit after having seen a couple beautiful Pinterest pictures (yes, really). I was immediately blown away by the fantastic medieval architecture, the dramatic skyline and it’s buildings from the city that’s built on top of a vulcanic hill. Clearly two days didn’t give us a chance to even see the tiniest bit of the city, so I would suggest you take three or four days to visit the city. And what would I have to do there, you ask. Well, behold my answer. These are my best tips voor sightseeing in Edinburgh!
