Exploring the streets of Amsterdam

Living in Germany but never traveled to our neighbors the Netherlands?
How is that even possible..?

Until January 2017 this was the fact for me so I decided to finally go and visit this country famous for its liberal and open minded people.

My first stop in the Netherlands was the city of Amsterdam, where I spend about a week, which definitly was not enough, but since it is not the cheapest city for travellers on a low budget, it was fine 😉

Just to give you an idea of the avarage cost per day spent there:
Dorm bed: 15€ +
Breakfast: 5€ (super market); 10€ (at restaurant e.g. English Breakfast)
Lunch or Dinner: from 8€ (affordable restaurant)
Museums: e.g Rijksmuseum entry: 17€ (Discounts for students possible)
Ferry to the other side of the town: 0€  🙂
Ticket for the tram or bus: about 3€ (one way ticket)
-> better use the OV-Chipcard (about 0,90€ per km)

There are free city walking tours offered at every hostel! 🙂

Here are some impressions of my short trip to Amserdam. Enjoy!



Hoi An

After finishing my internship and enjoying some more days in Hanoi during the national day, I got the awesome idea to make a stopover on my way to the south of Vietnam.

One of my friends had moved to the small town near Da Nang called Hoi An and invited me to have a look at her favourite place to stay and work.

I was and am still impressed by the vibe of that small town – it is a place, once you enter you don’t want to say goodbye so soon….



Streets of Hanoi

You don’t know what to do when you are in Hanoi?
There is definitely a lot more to discover than Pagodas and Pho Bo.


Be careful when going/driving around town:


Now that you have been warned, here are some places to discover and food/drinks to try that you might find interesting!

Safe travels! 🙂
