My day in Palma de Mallorca

The massive cathedral and the numerous windmills tower over the beautiful city which is located right by the sea. Palma has nothing to do with the resort city which I have imagined. The Old Town is charming and has a touch of many cultures which the city has experienced. It offers an endless array of galleries, historic monuments and good food. 

5 things you should do when you visit Mallorca​

I would never say that I would like Mallorca. I wouldn’t believe if somebody told me that I would go there. But yet I went I’m absolutely in love with it! Mallorca so much surprised me! Come with me for a short trip through this amazing Spanish island!

One day trip in the Netherlands​

Just as real espresso tastes best when drinking slowly on a small square in Italy, the harsh northern countries visited in the winter reveal more of their character and authenticity. The temperature might not be the most pleasant but it gives you a good excuse to drop in somewhere for a coffee whenever you feel like.

Where to look for a place to live in the Netherlands?

After describing all my experience with desperate flat hunting, scammers and Airbnb adventures I decided to write a short guide on where to look for a place to live in the most crowded European land which might not be a piece of cake. 


There was a time in my family when a pigeon stayed with us at home. The story was quite simple: my Mom met it on a walk and she felt sorry for a bird which couldn’t fly, so she decided to take it with her until it would be able to move independently apart from on foot.

How Julia couldn’t find a place to stay

…. or how Julia was changing accommodation every second day and couldn’t decide where to stay. Or how Julia managed to visit 57681 flats before she managed to settle. Or simply: how hard it is to find an accommodation when you are moving abroad.

how Julia bought her first thing in the Netherlands and what was it

And there it was – my very ugly black bike standing at the Boergoensestraat – and me – staring at it proudly not knowing by this time that soon I will have to invest double its worth in the reparations. It might had been love at first sight but we were not supposed to live happily ever after.
