What to visit in Cappadocia

Recently I checked off a destination that was one of the highest on my bucket list: Cappadocia in Turkey. I’ve been wanting to go since I saw an image of the cave houses when I was a little kid. So in October, I was there to promote the Instagram trip (Instagramrondreis in Dutch) for Corendon. With all the things to do, let's have a look at my top picks on what to visit in Cappadocia.

Back in Brabant to visit Heusden and Den Bosch!

The last couple of months have been crazy for me in terms of traveling. So what did I do when I finally came back home? Sleep? Rest? No! I went out to explore some more, but a bit closer to my home in Belgium. I headed to two cities in the Dutch province of North Brabant: Heusden and 's Hertogenbosch, (or often just called Den Bosch).

Most instagrammable places in South Tyrol

When I got the chance to visit South Tyrol along with a few other talented photographers, I was beyond stoked. I had seen so many pictures of the region, but never had the chance to get there myself. Until now! South Tyrol is a photographer's dream. There are so many amazing places to photograph in South Tyrol that you actually would need a few trips to see them all. While doing that, you'll most likely discover a few amazing unknown spots yourself! Skip the overly photographed Lago di Braies, and check out my top picks of the best instagrammable places in South Tyrol!

Vana Belle Koh Samui: Luxury in the ‘beautiful forest’

Some of you might have noticed I recently did a trip to Thailand. It was my first travel experience in Asia and it has been an absolutely amazing trip. First I spent some time in Bangkok before heading to more tranquil provinces like Phattalung en Khanom. After that, I ended up on the beautiful island called Koh Samui. In Koh Samui I had the chance to stay in one of the most luxurious hotels ever. Read along to find out more!

Exploring the Thai countryside

After I had a very short city trip in Bangkok, I took a domestic flight south to explore a more authentic and rural Thailand. While most tourists stay in one of the major tourist hubs like Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket, Chiang Mai or Koh Samui, I was happy to find myself in quieter provinces. I visited Phattalung and Khanom, two tranquil provinces in the south of Thailand and had the most amazing time of my life. Real along to find out how!

My 48 hours in Bangkok

Recently I visited Thailand, and what better way to get to know the country than starting in the capital of Bangkok. Bangkok is welcoming the most visitors in the world a year, more than any other country in the world, and that’s not surprising. What’s also not surprising is that 48 hours in this city just weren’t enough. But hey, sometimes you gotta start off slow, right?
