#2430 – Recent Happier Stories

ENGLISH Well, so a brighter topic for a change a bit here, after the rather “grim” last two posts, haha. So earlier this week, I became an uncle to a new niece! 😍😍😍 Yeah, so my brother and sister in law have just had a daughter who was born earlier this week. Words can’t really…

#2429 – This Weekend

ENGLISH This September I mentioned that at that point, I had had two trips (within Europe) planned. The first one was my long weekend trip to Porto, Portugal last month. And the second one should have taken place this weekend, where I would have travelled on a weekend trip to Rome, Italy. Yep, third conditional,…

#2428 – Hello November

ENGLISH So it’s only two months left before the end of 2020! But at this point it seems that these are going to be two tough months here in Europe. It is apparent that the COVID-19 second wave has hit pretty much all of Europe. The Netherlands has been in partial lockdown since mid-October, a…

#2426 – A Long Weekend Story

#2422 – This Last Weekend

ENGLISH With my generally “slow” travelling season this summer for me, I was longing for a beach destination for a short weekend getaway somewhere. I then found a cheap return ticket to Nice, France for mid-September and bought it after confirming with the official Dutch travel advice which categorized the entirety of France as “yellow”…

#2411 – This Summer

ENGLISH Now that we are almost halfway through this year’s summer, I have to say that this summer has been (and is) a “slow” one, in terms of travelling, of course, haha. Of course (most of) the internal Schengen borders have been opened for well over a month now, and indeed I went on a…
