About

Hi, I’m Isabella! Welcome on my page. Most likely you’ve found my blog when searching for information about Moscow, Russia and other destinations in East Europe, the Baltics and the Balkans. Or because you were looking for the best museums and coffee houses in Amsterdam. Here is why:

My first solo trip was to Prague in my teens, and it is still my favourite city. I’ve been fascinated with Eastern Europe ever since, and most of my blog entries will be focussed on destinations in this part of the world. It was my dream to visit Moscow ever since I saw flashes from the colourful Red Square on tv, and in 2014 this dream finally came true. Moscow and Russia as a whole didn’t disappoint, and I regularly go back to discover more of this immense country, at some point I even found myself studying there for a few months in a row. I feel there’s not much information on the web on this country as a travel destination, and this in combination with the many of the beaten track and places undiscovered by the masses make it my favourite destination to write about. 

Travelling also made me aware of  the beauty of my own country and appreciate it in a different way.  I’ve fallen in love with Amsterdam ever since I came here as a student, and now that I work in one of the most vibrant and fashionable neighbourhoods in town I get to discover the nicest cafés on a daily basis. Apart from being a coffee addict I’m also very interested in history and museums, and this city definitely has a lot to offer if it comes to those things. Amsterdam became a very popular tourist destination in recent years and therefore it can be hard to distinct the good places from the tourist traps. I understand that as a visitor you want to get the most out of your visit as possible, and therefore I’m happy to share my favourite places in Amsterdam with you.

I started this blog to inspire and be inspired.  Like what you’re reading? Are you as passionate about travel as I am, are you looking for additional information about the places I’ve visited or would you just like to say hello? I’d love to hear from you! You can get in touch with me here
