A Day Out: ‘Het Rijksmuseum’ Toerist in eigen land

After almost 10 years of reconstruction, The Netherlands’ most famous and grandest museum has opened its doors again. On April 13th there was the grand opening spectacle in the presence of the Queen on what was one of her final public appearances before she abdicates on April 30th. Lucky me, I was one of the 20.000+ people that were part of the grand opening and visited The Rijksmuseum. Outside on the Museumplein in Amsterdam, there was music playing, all sorts of promotional activities of the sponsors such as this cute van by KPN, a lovely Spring sun, people of all...

Discovering the Australian Outback: The road ahead Destinations

It is one of those ‘once in a lifetime’ experiences that I was lucky enough to have! One of those experiences that I will never forget: I visited the Outback! The road ahead was long, 1530 kilometres long that is. The trip was on, gear was packed, bus spick and span and the tour guide, my colleague Trevor ready to rumble. We were on our way from Adelaide to Alice Springs, to discover the Australian Outback! I imagine most of you have heard of the Outback and the incredible Red Desert of Australia, but only a few can actually relate...

Island hopping is the travel trend of 2013. Especially when you’re the kind of traveler who can’t sit still, loves that ocean breeze, that has a adventure gen and is interested in other cultures. For Europeans, the place to be this year, is Greece. After all the economic troubles, tourists stayed away for a while but are now slowly finding their way back. Vakantie.nl a Dutch travel trend website claims that Greece is now THE place to be, and perfect for island hopping since the country has over 6.000 (!) islands. Each island has its own pluspoints so I’ve made...

The island of Texel, The Netherlands Toerist in eigen land

Often we go on weekend breaks and often we consider cities such as Paris, Berlin, London or Rome. Big cities. Capital cities. But most of all…. well known cities. Over Easter, my boyfriend and I went on a short break to the relatively unknown city of Den Helder, and one of the Dutch ‘Wadden Islands’ namely Texel. After both having been really busy for the past few weeks, this break was well deserved and kind of necessary. So on was the search for a cheap hotel in a place far away, but within NL, that we could reach by train....

Nominated for a Liebster award Inspiratie

Earlier this week, I was pleasantley surprised when I received a nomination for a Liebster Award from Memoirs of a Metropolitan Girl :). Blogging for Marlow Travels isn’t a paid job, but it is something I do for fun and to extend my writing skills.

Being nominated gives me a also the right to nominate some of my own favorite blogs, the requirements are: 1). Thank the Liebster...

City reporter

Don’t you know that feeling? That you think that The United States are similar to Canada, That New Zealand is similar to Australia and that Korea is similar to Japan?Well I always have that feeling when I think of Belgium, the country being similar to The Netherlands. Last summer I spent my summer holiday in Flanders, the Dutch speaking region in the north of Belgium. Belgium, a country that lies a little over an hour away from where I live (near The Hague). A country that in many aspects is so the same and yet so different at times. During...
