København, Denmark: a photo impression

Hello there! What have you been up to? Man, do I love travelling and exploring new cities and countries. The beginning of this week I went on a citytrip with three friends, setting foot in Denmark! My first Scandinavian country… Definitely very different from the journeys I have embarked on during my exchange (Australia, New Zealand,…

East Coast Adventures part 2: Fraser Island

Probably the highlight of my East Coast trip: Fraser Island! This was the trip that was most adventurous, and we had such a great group of people. The organisation I went with was Pippies; I can definitely recommend them. Brett (our camp leader) knew so incredibly much about the history and nature of the island,…

My best photos

Although I’m still a newby (and a dummie you might say), I really love photography. I love looking at other people’s work, and can really appreciate a well composed shot. I’ve also done some photography myself the past year. I’d like to share with you my best photos so far;  

East Coast Adventures part 1: Byron Bay & Noosa

I am back! Long time no blogging guys… but I have a good excuse! After my semester at UNSW in Sydney ended, I went on the journey of a lifetime. A month of travels along the East Coast of Australia, three weeks in Bali, and another two weeks in New Zealand. All this time I…

Twitter Thoughts: What living in Sydney, Australia is like

As I was updating my Twitter feed the other day, I realised I’ve created a lot of tweet since I’ve arrived in Australia. I read most of them back and thought it would be fun to share a part of them on here, as it is basically a collection of random thoughts about this country…

Photo Essay: Newtown

G’day mates, how are you going? On Tuesday Lotte and I went to a part of Sydney we hadn’t explored yet: Newtown! A funky suburbs with lots of coffee shops, pubs and cute little vintage stores. I will keep it short this time; I shot some impressions which you can find below X    

History in Hyde Park: the War memorial and the Barracks museum

For the past months I’ve been slightly bothered by the fact I haven’t done many “cultural” things in Sydney yet. Lotte and I have been wanting to visit the Barracks museum for quite some time but due to our busy schedules it didn’t happen, until today! It is located right next to Hyde Park, so…

NL – Update: Les Misérables, scubadiving & meer…

Het is weer eens tijd voor een tussentijdse Nederlandse update dacht ik zo! Er staan weer een aantal foto’s op mijn iPhone die ik nog op mijn blog moet sharen, dus bij deze. Nadat we terugkwamen van onze vakantie in Melbourne (linkerfoto) was het tijd voor iets wat Lotte en ik al heel lang geleden…

The Great Ocean Road(trip)

Four crazy mates. One car. 240 kilometers of coastline = ROADTRIP TIME. As mentioned in my previous blog post, during our short holiday in Melbourne Paul, Fanny, Lise and I went on a roadtrip to explore the Great Ocean Road. We rented a car (a Toyota Corolla I believe) at car rental company Jucy Cars,…

Melbourne: hipsters, coffee & street art

Hello friends! Long time no blogging… I’ve been really really busy the past month with uni, daytrips, work and mid-semester break, which were all contributing factors to my absence in the blog-o-sphere. I now have such a huge amount of photos on my camera which I still have to share that I forced myself to…

Photo essay: The Blue Mountains

Last weekend I went on the most awesome hiking trip! The Blue Mountains have been something I’ve been wanting to visit ever since I knew I’d go to Sydney. It’s about a two-hour train ride from the city, and provides astonishing views – it’s massive, and the area is called “the Blue mountains” because when…

NL – Update vanuit the eastern suburbs

Hello there thuisfront! Al volop aan het genieten van de aankomende herfst (hehe)? Hier is het eindelijk lente en hoef ik eindelijk mijn jas niet meer aan naar buiten! Ik heb het de afgelopen weken vrij druk gehad met werken, toch nog een beetje studeren en leuke dagtrips. Update: ik heb inmiddels al twee gigantische…
