Must-See Places You Absolutely Must Experience In Rotterdam

Rotterdam sits in the southern part of The Netherlands and is the second largest city in the country, after Amsterdam. Due to the bombing in WWII Rotterdam was almost completely wiped out meaning that all of their architecture is fairly new and interesting. The photos you'll get because of this are so symmetrical and futuristic meaning your Instagram will be off the hook. 




There is so much to do in Rotterdam and around every corner you will find something different to do including many bars, restaurants, cafes and pubs. Rotterdam even boasts one of the best bars in the world, De Witte Aap. After visiting Rotterdam in May 2018 for #Traverse18 (which was amazing by the way) I am absolutely in love with the place, and you will be too if you visit these places.

How To Tackle Homesickness When Abroad





If you've moved abroad or have been travelling for long periods of time you may suffer with homesickness. It's quite a natural thing to go through, especially if your entire family are in a different country to you, it can be as simple as missing your mum, or your local supermarket, but it can be fought. I personally experience it quite a lot when I am travelling because I am in "unknown territory", but I have developed strategies to help me cope when abroad that seem to work. So below are my top tips to combating homesickness when you're abroad.

My Experience in City Hub Rotterdam



So our trip to Rotterdam didn't go 100% to plan, and we actually ended up in Rotterdam a day earlier in planned from The Hague so we had to book last minute accommodation for the night and boy did we absolutely luck out with what we booked. We managed to book CityHub Rotterdam which is a somewhat futuristic hostel that makes everyone feel welcome. I would definitely recommend a stay here if you're in Amsterdam or Rotterdam because I've never felt so comfortable in a hostel before. And it's not just the hostel itself, but the way it is run and the "hosts" employed to keep everything running smoothly.

I attended a bloggers conference called Traverse in Rotterdam (#Traverse18) which meant that I got a chance to discover the city a little bit.

My Trip To The Hague In Photos


Although I didn't get to spend very much time in The Hague, the time I did spend there was pleasant and I absolutely fell in love with the place. My top photo is actually from Schipol, but it was on my journey to The Hague so I figure that it still counts as a photo from my trip. So I had one day in The Hague before heading off to Rotterdam for a bloggers conference and you can find the journey in picture below. More posts to come very very soon. :) Enjoy for now.

Great Date Ideas if You're In Aberdeen

This post is part of a series where I give you advice on where to take your lucky date. Finding places to go on dates can be so hard because it's not just about finding something you'll enjoy, but also something your date would enjoy. A city like Aberdeen can seem bleak and rather unromantic to outside eyes, but trust me this isn't necessarily the case. As a local I can help you find the romantic locations for dates in and around Aberdeen. Since I have been dating in Aberdeen since I met my partner I've had plenty of time to scope out the great locations. If you're looking for date ideas when travelling then please read my list below.

Great Date Ideas if You're in Glasgow

Dating is hard. Like soooo hard, never mind if you can't find places to actually take your date to. That's what I found hardest when I first met my partner, on our first date I even got kicked out of a pub when I forgot my ID. With this in mind my partner and I often find nice places to go on dates when we are travelling around that I'd like to recommend to people, most recently Glasgow. So if you're travelling to Glasgow on a romantic getaway any time soon or looking to start dating in Glasgow then this is the article for you and you can find my date ideas below.

Below I share my top tips to having as low cost of a holiday as is possible.



Side Note: This is from my own personal experience travelling without children. Although I share some tips for families travelling I can't speak from experience of that myself. You're probably better checking out posts like this: https://www.mumsnet.com/family-money/8-ways-to-save-money-on-family-holidays
