Stormchasing in La Cité des Pierres – Montpellier-le-Vieux

While we didn't have an exact itinerary for our roadtrip through France last September, there were of course a few places that we had in mind as a direction. The area around the Gorges du Tarn and the Gorges de la Jonte was one of those places. After a little - but not bad at… Continue reading Stormchasing in La Cité des Pierres – Montpellier-le-Vieux

Overnight stop in the Ardeche region to escape the heat

Completely satisfied, but also with a serious case of jello-legs, I got in the car to further our travels into France. Our time in the gorgeous Vercors Massif was over. Bummer! But no time -and reason- to sulk for long; new adventures awaited! The next region that we wanted to explore was the Cevennes.

Three day roadtrip through Hauts-de-France on a budget

When I counted down to midnight on December 31, 2019 I could never have guessed what a rollercoaster of a year 2020 would be. Even when I went to Vienna at the end of January, I would have never believed anyone telling me that all my other travel plans for 2020 would fall through.

All things practical for a citytrip to Vienna

Oh how I wish I could go back two weeks in time. Then I was packing my bags and making some last minute arrangements for our upcoming citytrip to Vienna. Those few days right before a trip are almost as exciting to me as the trip itself. Almost. For such a long time, Vienna had… Continue reading All things practical for a citytrip to Vienna
