This summer I had the pleasure of travelling to two of the most popular cities in Europe. In the beginning of July, you could find me at the Spanish Costa, while I was in rainy London about a week ago.
My personal best would be London for the following reasons. As a student of English you cannot afford to never have been to the Great Britain. I was very excited that I booked another trip, right after I got back from Barcelona. London is like a fairy tale to me. The place where William the Conquerer build his palace – nowadays known as the Tower of London, which you can still visit – and the theatre. A place where people speak English perfectly and I could actually understand them without trying too hard. Continue reading
The United States of America have many National Parks, which are either maintained by the government or Native Americans. Because the maintenance of parks is pretty expensive, almost every park asks for an entering fee. So always keep in mind that once you enter a National Park by car, foot or bike you probably need to pay a fee. One of the most famous parks on American grounds is Grand Canyon National Park, in which the Grand Canyon is the biggest highlight. Continue reading
Before I start to tell about La Joue du Loup, there is something about Dutch people you should know. The Netherlands is a very very very flat country. Our biggest “hill” is 200 metres high and the only place to do some skiing or snowboarding is an inside hall called Snowworld. Since we do not have the hills, we always go to Austria or in my case France. What we like to do with these villages is swallow them. In La Joue you will find a bar called De Prins van Oranje (Prins of Orange – which is a title our royalty have). The local supermarket is owned by a Dutch woman and most people walking around in the winter season are Dutch. Honestly, for me walking around in La Joue in the winter is the same as walking in Sunny Beach, Lloret da Mar or Chersonissos in the summer. So, if you are looking for a Dutch-free holiday, Tirol, La Joue du Loup and Val Thorens aren’t the places for you. Continue reading
The Kenyan kitchen has different influences from their homeland, to Asia and other parts of Africa. In my research I found Susan Kamau’s Kenyan Kitchen. Susan Kamau is a writer of a Kenyan cookbook and she also hosts a tv show, which can be found on youtube. The Pumpkin Bean Stew is one of her recipes and more can be found at her site.

Probably one of the most famous national park in the world, Serengeti National Park (abbreviated as Serengeti). Serengeti was founded in 1913 by an American called Stewart Edward White. In the same year he set out from Nairobi (Kenya) to the south and walked many many miles. ”We walked for miles over burnt out country… Then I saw the green trees of the river, walked two miles more and found myself in paradise.” This was the start of Serengeti National Park, of which each 90.000 tourists enjoy the landscape, wildlife and volcanos.
