Budapest, the city on the Danube.

What did I know about Budapest and Hungary? Nothing at all! It is precisely for this reason that I decided to escape from the daily routine in this pure cutie of Eastern Europe. This time my travel buddies are Claudia and Vitto and for those who don’t know, they are my […]

Traveling to the U.S

When I travel I forget about technology. I’m focused and totally absorbed by what surrounds me, and social networks, technology, even Trips in Sips can wait. I just got back from my Coast to Coast trip a few days ago and I’m still dizzy because of the jet leg (this […]

King’s Day!

The Netherlands is a country that is very attached to its Royal Family and its history. Every year on April 27th it’s celebrated the Koningsdag, also called King’s Day. Again, I had to return to the Dutch territory after my Erasmus. What a shame! I actually killed two birds with […]

Gouda cheese and Stroops!

Gouda was one of the field trips that excited me the most! On a sunny day in October we took our backpack and we went to the city of cheese. After an hour of bus ride from Den Haag we arrived in Gouda (which I loved) that is now officially […]
