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 for this award is therefore an honor. Even though it is not necessarily an award, it is a recognition and nice way to promote good blogs that have less than 200 (WordPress) followers. 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...

Bikes, Bridges and the Belfry - a tour through the Belgian city of Brugges City reporter

As a full-time student, money is not something that is easy to come by but traveling is even harder to go without! As a compromise, my boyfriend and 2 of our best friends, decided to go cheap & chique. We were headed to our southern neighbor, Belgium. As the friends, Marjolein and Kevin, are moving in together soon, and Tristan and I had a rather extraordinary trip last year, meant that we had to come up with a low-budget itinerary that still meant that we could indulge during our holiday. As Dutchies, we are naturally used to riding our bikes...

As you can see, the natural light was diverse; torn between dark clouds and bright rays of sun. This created a natural sort of mysterious look over the photo. Destinations / Toerist in eigen land

Untill I took part in my exchange student experience, for which I spent 10 months living with a host family in rural Oregon, United States and went to high school there, I really looked down upon my own country when it came to landscpes, nature, cities and other things to see. I always thought that Holland (or the Netherlands more properly) was a way too small country to live in and be able to see a lot of beautiful things. It was for that reason that I always had the urge to go abroad. I didn’t really matter where, as...
