After living for six years in the Netherlands, I am blessed with many incredible memories and friendships. Moreover, travel has always been a large part of my life. Before I moved in February 2011, I visited Europe three times. England was my first European experience and that was the trip that actually sparked my desire to move abroad. When I moved to Amsterdam, though, naturally I wanted to keep exploring. I felt geographically closer, and my thirst to experience the world – my wanderlust – continued to blossom and grow. Plus the Dutch capita provides the perfect gateway to explore the rest of Europe. Read about the adventures I embarked on while living overseas.
Welcome to March … that time of year when we shed our wool winter coats for light outerwear and spend our days in the office dreaming about shorts and flip-flops. Thankfully, spring break is coming up. Spring break is the perfect excuse to pack our bags and set off on a new adventure. It is a week that frees us from the real world and gives us a mental break. I compiled a list of nine fun yet cheap spring break destinations. The article offers something for everyone, whether you are a broke college student looking for a party, a fun-loving family in need of activities for all ages, or a group of friends seeking a cultural alternative to the well-known tourist spots.
