I’m a bit of a Jane Austen fan. Ok, I admit it… I’m struggling to read her books in English (at the rate I am currently going it will probably take me another 10 years to finish them all), but I have seen a lot of film and television adaptations. I just love these costume dramas… the slow storylines, the beautiful scenery, the fantastic locations… And it would  definitely be a dream come true to make a Jane Austen themed trip around England and attend the Jane Austen festival in Bath!

And yet again I went on a daytrip to Paris 🙂

Since I found out about “Slangen reizen” (the Dutch bus company who does daytrips to Paris for only 30 EUR!), I’ve been to Paris 4 times in about 15 months, each time visiting another part of this beautiful town. In total I have been to Paris about 10 times now and I just can’t get enough of the “City of Lights”…

Many more trips will follow… let me tell me you a bit more about my most recent visit! Read all about our trip to Paris!

Ever since the beginning of my blog I have been posting travel tips ‘n trips. I like sharing my travel experiences with others. And as I always take heaps of photographs when on holiday, it became a habit to put many of them in my travel posts.

Some travel posts did really well while others were hardly read. Today I will put 6 travel posts in the picture. Besides the 3 most popular ones, I will take a look back at 3 posts that didn’t do well at all even though I think they are worth reading!  Read more about these good, fab and lovely travel posts!
