Highly noted on my bucket list I have noted down to see the new 7 Wonders of the World in this life time. The first one to write about that I visited is the only World Wonder in Europe, the Colosseum in Italy, Rome.

Heerlen in the Netherlands is the place I grew up in. I will not lie, it is a hideous city with more gray colors than others. Although the city has been working on its image of a former coal mine city. There is a lot of empty stores in the city center which is not appealing at all (still, in the neighboring cities and villages you will find enough nature). To make the city look a bit more colorful graffiti has been used to cheer up the streets. Can you spot them all in your visit?
In this post I will take you on a journey to the beautiful Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe in Kassel, located in the middle of Germany. Kassel itself is a beautiful city to visit, this post will only focus on the park to give you a quick insight on what to see and with some useful links if you wish to venture to it yourself. The park is an UNESCO heritage sight, and it is worth a visit! The style is in English landscape and boy did they pull it off! With some of the monuments dating back to the 1700’s! So be sure to pack your best sneakers for walking the whole day (check here for some tips about that).
What to see in the park?
The big Schloss (castle) is a beauty from the outside alone already. Do to time we did not enter the castle, but just look at this humongous building in the middle of the park. There is a museum inside for all you art lovers.
Guten tag Travelers,
A few days ago we visited the beautiful park in Kromlau, just 6 kilometers from the Polish border in Germany. This park is well known in the Instagram world for its beautiful bridge, the Rakotzbrücke.

Me and my girlfriend visited Romania last November, with a cheap flight to Bucharest. We hired a car and visited some castles in the Brasov area in Transylvania. We visited the famous Peles Castle and Bran Castle as well as the Cantacuzino Castle. We just covered a small part of Transylvania, and there are so many more places to discover in this vast region so we surely visited again :).

The last part of our trip took us to my home country, the Netherlands. After shortly visiting my childhood home where my girlfriends family and mine met for a cup of tea, we went on to Rotterdam. Here, the parents went on a tour through Rotterdam with the splasbus tour.
Which is right next to the famous Euromast in Rotterdam.
After a few days in Switzerland we drove 6 hours to the capital of France, Paris!
There we went to Louvre, up the Eiffel tower (not worth it) and enjoyed the shopping streets. For a quick overall look see the pictures below 🙂

Day 2 of our trip started with a visit to Lichtenstein castle. If you are ever near it, visit! The surroundings are gorgeous and great hiking grounds. The castle itself looks amazing as well, just see below :).
