#2370 – A Sunny Winter Weekend in Valencia

ENGLISH Once upon a time a few years ago, I stumbled accross some pictures of Valencia and, since then, I have wanted to go there! But somehow I have consistently found it challenging to get a great deal on the flights there (unless I would be okay with flying LCCs, which was quite a “stretch”…

#2364 – January Blues

ENGLISH I think the best feeling to describe January thus far has been, as in the title, “blue”. I think it has a lot to do with the Dutch weather too, where it has been mostly cloudy thus far. Perhaps my decision to go to Canada for my year-end trip also played a role because…

#2355 – Recent Stories

ENGLISH It has been a nice couple of weeks in the Netherlands, and actually in many places in Europe, weather-wise. After such an extended period of thick cloud and gloominess, finally we got some sun! Seriously, though, at one point I really thought I hadn’t seen the sun in weeks, except when I was flying…

#2246 – Flu and A Baby Shower

ENGLISH I guess one downside of the “prolonged” cold weather here in the Netherlands is … the flu! Haha 😛 . For quite some time I saw people around me getting some flu, to varying degree. For a while I thought I was, both, lucky and had great immune system (haha) because I was unaffected….
