I'm a 24-year-old currently based in Belgium. I mostly write about travel hacks and TV-shows. If you like what you read, consider giving a small tip to fund my travels so I can keep giving you travel hacks. ;)
Netflix binge: Outlander
Claire Randall is a British Army nurse in World War II, and decides together with her husband Frank Randall (an aspiring Oxford historian), to re-do their honeymoon in Scotland to celebrate the end of the war in 1945. When visiting Craig Na Dun, a stone circle similar to - but a lot smaller than - Stonehenge, Claire is suddenly transported back into time to the year 1743. An English woman in the Scottish Highlands in the middle of the 18th century, what could possibly go wrong?
Why Motherland:Fort Salem is Worth a Watch
Being quarantined means that we all have more time to go through our Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and HBO lists. My friends have been recommending me new tv-shows and movies pretty much non-stop since the stay-at-home orders. Motherland: Fort Salem was one of those tv-shows, and now it is my turn to convince you to put it on your list as well!
Why Capsule Hotels Are a Good Idea
If you don't know what a capsule hotel is; it's basically a fancy hostel where, instead of sleeping in bunk beds, you sleep in a literal capsule together with 20-40 other people (all in individual capsules of course, not in the same one). All other areas such as the bathrooms are shared, but most capsule hotels do offer individual shower rooms to keep guests as comfortable as possible. In most of these hotels, it is also common to separate men from women, which is also common in hostels. This concept originated in Japan, and has since become popular all over Asia and Europe.

How to Tackle China, South Korea, and Japan in Less Than Three WeeksTop Story - July 2019
The plan of tackling three countries in three weeks originated from being European and wanting to visit more than one country on our first trip to Asia. We therefore also chose countries that were "obvious" to visit and that were fairly close to each other. Our means of transportation from city to city and from country to country were solely by high speed trains and airplanes (I'm very sorry, mother nature). In the cities, we mostly walked and used the subway. Because we are still students, we chose to live on a budget mostly, hence why some of our flight times were less than ideal. However, we managed just fine! :)

Fact Checking (Ch. 1)
January 2, 2019, 8:15 PM—I'm scrolling through my Twitter timeline when I see the following tweet: I click on the tweet to see the comments because I'm sure there are people agreeing and disagreeing on this topic. People who are disagreeing on the topic say things like: "It's an international airport, therefore she should be able to speak English," "English is a universal language, therefore people who are in contact with internationals should speak English," etc. There are a few things that are wrong about these allegations, even though they seem perfectly fair.
Animal Social Media Accounts that Are Worth Checking Out
This is a list of Twitter/YouTube accounts with cute animals because why not? This account is exactly what it says: thoughts of dogs. The whole account is based around "a dog" tweeting. The tweets are inspired by a dog named Zoey and her owner helps her by creating these ADORABLE tweets. The account has kind of created a storyline by now featuring "the stuffed fren Sebastian," "the skittle under the fridge," the kid and family dog next door, and the owner's friends. If you want to have a warm fuzzy feeling filled with dog love, you might want to check out this account!
How to Tackle the Ring Road in Iceland in Summer
Disclaimer: This is a guide for an eight to ten-day trip. Seven days is not enough to do the ring road! So, you're planning on doing a trip to Iceland in the summer. Lucky you! Now, you can't exactly go to Iceland without a real plan or you'll miss out on a bunch of stuff, and that's a fact! Even when you plan out everything, you're still going to miss a few things while you're driving around there. This guide will hopefully help you plan everything a little bit better, as I've personally done this trip a few weeks ago. Don't forget that it does not get dark in Iceland in summer, so your biological clock might get a little confused.
What to Pack for a Summer Trip to Iceland
If you've ever wondered what to pack for a summer trip to Iceland, you're not the only one! Before traveling to Iceland myself, I had to look up different blogposts about what to pack, and I still didn't go fully prepared. This list is a combination of multiple blogposts including my own experiences! (I didn't add things like underwear and toothpaste, I assume you know that you have to pack those).
