The Countryside of China – Karst mountains & Yangshuo

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)

A speeddate with the Taj Mahal

(photo: me at the Taj Mahal)

Hi Everyone,

The last time I had a quick stopover in Delhi (for just 24 hours) I decided with one of my colleagues to visit the Taj Mahal. This is quite a crazy plan because a one way drive takes already 3 hours and everything was arranged (driver + guide) just an hour before te flight left. That did not stop us from marking off this bucket list thing. Because really? What do you want to see from the world? I guess the only right answer is everything! (Ok maybe not e-ve-ry-thing but all the nice stuff – yes). And the very famous Taj Mahal is included as well if we talk about my wish-list. (All photo’s on this blog are my very own pictures – nothing is sponsored)

Hi everyone,

Here are my top 10 favorite beaches: (all pictures are taken by me)

Escaping the craziness of Bangkok

Hi Everyone,

I recently came back from Bangkok for work. I always enjoy Bangkok layovers. The weather is nice (only during the summer it is quite humid and sweaty), the massages are good and cheap and I really enjoy Thai Food. (nothing is sponsored – all pictures are taken by me)
