A little more of Haarlem

On my last day, we wandered around Haarlem, down cobbled streets and passed plenty of quirky looking shops and stylish restaurants. We stopped opposite the St. Bavokerk church to have a coffee and ordered a slice of chocolate pie to share. Yes. Chocolate pie. It’s as amazing as it sounds. It’s like a giant brownie […]

Pre-Travel Jitters

So in one week, I’m making my dream come true. I’ve quit my job, and I’ve bought a one-way ticket. You would think I would be more excited, rather than a bundle of nerves and not being able to sleep until the early hours most nights even though I feel very tired and as it […]
