Phuket Travel Diary

Processed with VSCOcam with s3 preset

We spent the majority of our time in Thailand in Phuket, and this island took us by surprise! Going to Boracay a few months prior to Phuket, I assumed that Phuket would be the same size as Boracay, but was I ever wrong. Phuket is a huuuge island filled with such an array of things to do and see. We did our best to explore the different parts of the island and to see it’s beaches, temples, restaurants and gorgeous sunsets.

36 Hours in Bangkok

In August I got the opportunity to travel to Thailand for 12 days. In retrospect, it definitely wasn’t long enough to experience all of the wonders Thailand has to offer. So I left wanting to explore it even more.

We touched down in Bangkok around midnight (in my opinion it was the perfect timing. As soon as we got to the hotel we fell asleep right away and woke up bright and early to start our day). We highly prioritized seeing two temples the next day, Wat Pho and the Grand Palace (pictured above). I have never been to any Buddhist temples or any temples like this for that matter. So it was an experience to remember!

Travel Diary: Amsterdam

My trip to Amsterdam has made me fall in love with the city. Its safe to say that it is one of my most favourite cities in the world. The vibe is so laid back and chill, the people are friendly and I LOVE the strong presence of “sneaker culture” there. I’m so happy that my friends and I chose to stay in an Airbnb rather than a hotel, because it made our stay feel so much more authentic. I do have to admit that at first I thought our 8 day stay in the dam was a bit too long, but there is actually so much to do/see that near the end of our trip I wished we were there for longer. I had the best time and experience in Amsterdam and I can’t wait to plan another trip and go back! Continue reading
