  • European Adventures (Down Memory Lane)

    One of the great appeals of studying in the UK is the ability to make budget trips to Europe. During my second year, my cousin sister and I made a short whirlwind tour of Europe to London, Paris and Venice. It was the first time I had organised a holiday on my own and needless […]

  • Beach Bums

      Once upon a time, my parents moved from our beloved home city of Delft to a town nestled behind the Dutch dunes to be closer to the beach, and I despised the beach for about a year because it was windy and sandy and not home. But at some point a shift occurred and […]

  • Skye-driving

    The first thing I did when I found out that I’ll be moving to Dundee was to make a list of all the places I could visit nearby. Scottish Highlands were one of them; right near the very top!¬†This is my experience of travelling around the Isle of Skye over a weekend, and some things I’d do differently when I plan my next trip!

  • Edinburgh & Photography

    I recently took a trip with the photography society here at Dundee (DUPS) to Edinburgh – what a whirlwind. I think I saw more in two days than some people get to see in a lifetime of living in Edinburgh, but that just be because people who live in a place think they have all […]

While Dundee has plenty of opportunities for days out, sometimes your desire for escape will lead you further afield. St. Andrews is a quaint, seaside student town with surprisingly […]

  • My Advocate Adventure

    I am just back from one of the most rewarding and exciting weekends I may have ever been on! I was lucky enough to be chosen earlier in the year to become one of Girlguiding UK advocates which basically means that I am one of 18 female spokeswomen on behalf of the charity. Some of […]

  • Discovering the UK- Part 3

    On my ongoing adventures throughout the UK, my next stop was Edinburgh. I have been to Edinburgh plenty of times before, but my main reason of going was because of the famous Fringe Festival that is currently running. The Fringe Festival is one of the largest arts and cultural festivals in the world that runs […]

  • Discovering the UK- Part 2

    Over the past 6 weeks while I have been interning at Life Sciences research labs, I have tried to make the most of my weekends and try to explore more of the UK. So, my next stop was London. I had never been to England before this, so naturally you can imagine how excited I […]
