Budapest Europe

Cruising on the Danube in Budapest

One of Budapest’s greatest and most well-known landmarks is without a doubt the river The Danube. When you visit this awesome Eastern European Capital then some rollin’ on this river shouldn’t be left out.

Many operators, many options
There are a ton of different companies who happily let you float around the Danube by boat. Some of their offers include drinks, some include dinner, some are a boat tour by night and some include all of the options just mentioned. Most tours last for about an hour and sail past all the historic highlights of Budapest such as Buda Castle, the Fisherman’s Bastion and the Parliament. We opted for only a boat tour with Dock 8A. This tour offered unlimited hop ons/hop offs for the day, which meant we could take the tour by day and by night, for only 11 Euro!
Sightseeing and relaxing in one
I love discovering a city by myself, but I secretly also love cheesy touristic tours. Why? Because you can just sit back, relax while the tour takes you to the most beautiful places of the city while you rest your feet. The Parliament looked even prettier when seen from the Danube, and seeing Budapest’s famous bridges up close whilst sailing underneath them is also a great experience. If you take the tour with Dock 8A you also get the option to get off at Margaret Island, a small island located between Buda and Pest, where you can wander around and enjoy the pretty parks.

Budapest – a city of lights
You haven’t been to Budapest if you haven’t seen the city by night. Buda Castle, The Fisherman’s Bastion, The Parliament, the bridges and other major landmarks are beautifully illuminated and all the other lights of the city complete the magical views. When traveling in Budapest early spring or late fall, make sure you bring a warm coat and a scarf as it can get quite windy on the boat. But no matter how cold, the views will keep you warm 🙂

Once you get off the boat and you’re freezing you can either make your way back to your hotel or warm up with a hot drink at one of Budapest’s many ruin pubs. Whatever you’re looking for, this city has it all.

  • The beautiful Belgian city of Antwerp is conveniently located 2 hours south of Amsterdam and 3.5 hours north of Paris. A visit to this historically rich city is therefore an absolute must if you're on a Europe city trip 🇪🇺🇧🇪 ∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘
I was staying at @hotelmateloteantwerp, a gorgeous boutique hotel located 200m from the Grote Markt (picture). It therefore is the perfect place to stay whilst wandering the streets of Antwerp, tasting delicious Belgian beers and trying out some Belgian waffles and chocolate. 
I absolutely ♥ Antwerp! Have you been? ∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘

Also cheers to being reunited with my friends @travel.with.j and @katvangeleyn_ who is taking this picture 😁 Jan, Katrien and I met in Australia and lived together for a couple of months in Bondi Beach. We became close friends and I couldn't be happier to finally see them again! 💕

Have a great weekend everyone! 👯

Quitting my 9 to 5 as an email marketer to jump on a plane to explore the other side of the world has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. What's the boldest decision you ever made? ∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘

Fun fact about this dress: it is actually a maternity dress🤰🏼🙈 When I came across it online at @boohoo I instantly fell in love with it and just ordered it anyway. Turns out it fits perfectly! 💕

I have this thing with swings. It's not exactly the same as a swing hanging from a palm tree on some tropical island, but this one will do just fine for now ☺️ Hope everyone is having a great weekend! 💕

The beaches in Zeeland are clearly distinguishable from other (Dutch) beaches because they have these wooden poles on the beach. The function of these poles is to avoid the current from becoming too strong, otherwise the beach would slowly disappear and eventually the dunes would be eaten up by the ocean as well. Bet you didn't know that, did you? 😁😆
