Coimbra is a city in Portugal with centuries of history and therefore a must on any road trip itinerary through Portugal. It’s also possible to visit from either Lisbon or better even Porto as a day trip. I visited Coimbra and its university on the way from Porto to Lisbon.

My road trip along the coast in South France with the family included two nights in Marseille.

We had one full day to explore Marseille after which we continued our journey towards Nice...

I’ll show you around this hospital and...

Visiting the seal refuge center Pieterburen, a course on filleting fish, a boat ride on the Waddenzee and getting dirty while walking...
It has been exactly one and a half-year since I had to cancel a trip to Portugal due to family issues. Now it was finally the time to visit Portugal together with my wife and kids; we did a 7-10 day road trip in Portugal. We took a flight from Amsterdam to Madrid where we would take a rental...
