Helsinki, the Jewel of the Baltic

During our cruise ride we got to see beautiful sights of the Baltic and its islands… The cruise from Stockholm to Helsinki was definitely worth it! Our first stop in the cruise was Helsinki. Off we went and jumped into the hop on and hop off bus, which was just standing outside of the cruise….

Stockholm: the capital of Scandinavia 

We flew from Charleroi Airport in Belgium to the Sweden Skavsta Airport, which is a 1 hour and 20 minutes bus ride away from Stockholm City. We exchanged Euros to Swedish Kronas in the Airport. We stayed in a quite nice location, in the Östermalm district. A posh residential neighborhood which is trendy and popular,…

Trash day in Maastricht! 

Here, in Maastricht, taking your trash out is an activity on its own. It depends on the neighborhood that you live, but in the Avenue Ceramique area, we must take the trash bag from the Gemeente Maastricht every Tuesday night. That is a white and red bag that needs to be placed outside of the…

Giethoorn: Holland’s best kept secret… a MUST visit!

A mom and friend of Jack’s school had told us about a little town in the Northern part of The Netherlands… Giethoorn. None the less, we didn’t look into it too much, so the advise just stayed untouched… It was until a video started to go viral on Facebook that we really got interested in…

In the beginning of February, we looked at the temperature in Saariselkä, a little village up north located in the Lapland of Finland, it was -37 Celsius Degrees… we were frozen already and we had not even arrived there! Our best bet was to stock ourselves up quickly with the right clothes to stand such coldness!…

ICELAND: a joyful place filled with excitement

We had gone to the Finish Lapland in February (read about that in The North Pole blog post) with the hope to see the Northern Lights, also known as Aurora Borealis, but unfortunately it had not been possible for us there. Ever since we left there, we were left with the curiosity to see such a…

Aachen by mistake

Jack decided he wanted to have Pizza, which is strange, because he doesn’t really like it… so we googled Pizza Hut, and the closest one to us was in Aachen- a German small city close to the Dutch border. As we were already going there and Jack fell asleep in the car, we decided to…

The life changing post: Le Tour du Monde and a… big move!

We had travelled to London, Paris, Geneva, Leysin, Interlaken, Jungfraujoch, Amsterdam and Rotterdam in November 2014, taking advantage of the big distance that was already to be flown to get to Israel, were for the first time we were going to get Jack’s hair cut. It is a Jewish tradition, that a very few people follow,…
