Visit Kasteel Keukenhof and the secret garden in Lisse

Did Keukenhof ring a bell? Pretty sure you’re thinking of the vast tulip field in Lisse which only opens during the Spring season but it’s not what this post is all about. Unfortunately, I was too late to catch this flower show during my visit last August. This, however, did not stop me and my boyfriend to travel all the way to Lisse to see what remains of this spectacular garden which eventually led us to a different secret garden in the heart of Kasteel Keukenhof.

Refuel your history lessons in the Bulgaria National Archaeological Museum

There’s so much history revolving around the building where the National Archaeological museum currently stands. Long story short, the museum replaces the oldest and the largest Grand Ottoman Mosque in Sofia. Now, it holds over 450,000 treasures excavated from the Balkan Peninsula and from all around the world.

Pamporovo Ski Resort for winter activity

Skiing in Pamporovo is my favorite winter activity– you should try it too!

Alas! I can finally tick-off skiing from my bucket list. Not that my skiing skills are something to be proud of but this winter activity has been on my list for a long time already. This tropical girl, born under the sun, finally got her hands on these skiing gears and that, my friend, is something that I can rejoice– for now. For the skills? Well, I guess I can improve that later on.

Netherlands is one of the top tourist destinations in Europe. Regardless if you’re up for a week-long excursion in Germany or you’re in the middle of your Eurotrip, a side trip to the Netherlands is always a must in your itinerary. Who would dare to skip sight-seeing rows of beautiful tulips, cruising the long rivers, and enjoying an afternoon with freshly made stroopwafels? I’m not sure about you but skipping these off my list is unforgivable. Aside from that, there’s definitely more to this kingdom than these wonderful travel gems.

's-Hertogenbosch Central Station

A magical walk at Den Bosch that you should try

It was one hell of a magical night when we decided to visit ‘s-Hertogenbosch. I know it’s a bit difficult to remember– it’s something like “heterogeneous” and sounds like “heshcdsrfjsdskkj”. (Yes! Emphasis on the “g” + “sch” sound in Dutch which really hurts my throat by the way). Later on, I found out that it is colloquially known as Den Bosch which is not that difficult to remember  for me. Thank goodness!

Setting that aside, I was really mesmerized by its beauty. If you want to know what I am talking about, here’s a sneak peek and my list of 4 (+1) things to see while at Den Bosch.

Amsterdam on a budget: Holland Pass, cheap train rides and foods [Updated: 7/3/17]

Europe is one of the most expensive places to visit. For someone like me, it’s already difficult to afford that plane ticket so how much more the hotel accommodation during my stay? Not to mention, the hassle of applying for a Schengen visa and the fees that come along with it. My trip to The Netherlands was a short notice and I honestly don’t have enough money to enjoy a luxurious trip. So here’s how I was able to save my ass from the expenses while still enjoying my trip..
