Stockholm. The capital of Scandinavia. That’s what they call themselves, probably to the annoyance of people from Copenhagen, Oslo or Helsinki, I guess. But Stockholm really lives up to its name. The city is stunning and if you haven’t been there, I advise you to start making plans right away!
During the Easter weekend, I was in Stockholm for a few days. It was great to be back, I’ve been there a couple of times but hadn’t been able to return since the summer of 2015! Although the weather had been nice the days before, winter suddenly decide to come back for the Easter weekend. So… Read more »
Last week I embarked on a cruise to Western Caribbean cruise on Holland America’s Oosterdam along with my dad. Arriving the day before from Europe, we needed a one-night stay in a hotel in Tampa. A lot of popular pre-cruise hotels are located in the Rocky Point Area west of the airport, but we opted… Read more »
During our last visit to Prague my girlfriend and I stayed at the Boscolo hotel. Boscolo is a small Italian 5-star hotel chain, with hotels in Prague, Budapest, Nice, Rome, Venice and Milan. Having previously resided in Boscolo Exedra Nice and Boscolo Budapest, I had no doubt the hotel in Prague would be of the same… Read more »
Boscolo sure knows how to pick their hotels! As their hotel in Prague, Boscolo Budapest is located in an Italian Renaissance-style palace. The building from 1894 offers cozy but highly luxurious rooms for a pampered stay in Hungary’s romantic capital. The building is also home to the famous New York Café, which in itself is… Read more »
Mmmm, Let’s talk food, shall we? My morning routine: wake up, head straight to Emmerys. Really, Emmerys, on the corner of Klostergade and Guldsmedgade, is a great place to start your morning. You can order breakfast to go, or sit back and enjoy the quiet morning with a cup of coffee. They really focus on… Read more »
When I was in Denmark I spent a few days in Aarhus. Denmark has a total population of only 5,700,000 and a fair amount of them live in or near Copenhagen. The rest of the country is rather scarcely populated, especially compared to Belgium where I’m from. So with 330,000 inhabitants of which 264,000… Read more »
A couple of weeks ago I made an impulsive fly & drive trip to Denmark, home to several famous furniture designers. After been in Norway and Sweden numerous times, I must shamefully admit I’d never set foot in Denmark. Ever!
So it’s been a while since I’m back from Prague but boy do I miss it! If you’re a fellow European this lovely city is the perfect place for a city trip (we even spent the whole week there and could easily stay longer!). For non-Europeans, Prague is ideal to get a taste of the great… Read more »
During our trip to Prague, we made some time to head away from the busy city and visited the Zoo! It’s located outside the city centre and although you can get there by bus or even by boat plus a short walk after that, I recommend taking a taxi like we did. From our Boscolo… Read more »
