Resort Review – Majestic Colonial

Honestly, I am impressed.

Having stayed next door last year, at the adult-only Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar, I wasn’t sure what to expect from the least luxurious section of Majestic Resorts in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. To be perfectly honest, I enjoyed my stay at the Colonial much more than the Ambar. Continue reading Resort Review – Majestic Colonial

travel: hotel vs. airbnb

During our 17-day trip to Europe, we had the opportunity to stay in both hotels and also in an airbnb listing. If you are not familiar with airbnb, it’s a website designed to help you find apartments to rent out wherever you go, in a safe, certified way. You get options of renting out a room, or a full place to yourself. Although I probably don’t have nearly enough airbnb experience to judge it so quickly, I have enough travel and life experience to make some conclusions. Continue reading travel: hotel vs. airbnb

fashion: modifying the look of the Parisienne

For anyone who’s into fashion, Parisian fashion, and how you should/shouldn’t look when you travel to Paris, you know that they all say you should fit in as much as possible. You don’t want to stand out as a tourist, they say. Don’t wear bright colours, don’t wear sneakers, don’t do this, don’t do that. Continue reading fashion: modifying the look of the Parisienne

Rome: Gli Angeletti for dinner

Having had a well known Roman restaurant recommended to us, La Carbonara, we arrived there to find out it’s impossible to get in without a reservation. As a result, we were forced to look for elsewhere to eat. Continue reading Rome: Gli Angeletti for dinner

Venice: travel colourfully to Burano

Travelling to Venice is much more than just the main set of islands. What many people don’t know, is that there are a few other very interesting islands just a mere 7,5Euro away. From Venice it’s possible to visit Murano, Burano, and Torcello. Murano is (apparently) tourist-infested as much as Venezia, and the prices for the glass pieces are raked high for authenticity and convenience, where as Torcello doesn’t have much to offer due to its population of 17 people. Continue reading Venice: travel colourfully to Burano

NYC: a spontaneous weekend on a tight budget

It’s friday morning, I’m at work bright and early. Dreaming of the weekend, when I can spend some time at home, relaxing. I am completely unaware of the idea burning up inside my significant other’s head, until lunchtime, when I glance at my phone, and the words “we are driving to New York tonight” pop up on my screen.

Summer is the perfect time for travel, especially if you prefer hot weather and if you’re a student.

Colombia

Going on vacation, a business trip, or just any travelling, usually requires some amount of packing whether you go for a day, a week, or a year. Packing, as some of you may know, is a task that requires quite some time, whether you’re fashion obsessed or not. Through my experiences of flying twice a month in my previous career, I was able to come up with a few words of advice. Continue reading travel: what to pack in your carry-on, and more
