Seeing the northern lights without planning.

Getting slightly lost in Hamburg.

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    I would prep everything with a little more time, to investigate about the cities and pinpoint what places I want to visit.

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    Getting mixed up in Hamburg, but it was quickly resolved.

  • How was the food?

    Great places of all types, cafes are great in Amsterdam and any waterside restaurant in any of the cities is a good choice.

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Check what places you want to visit in each city beforehand, so you don’t miss anything.

  • Packing tips?

    If you’re travelling during fall (October-November), make sure to pack warmly. You could use some thermal underwear, winter jackets and scarfs. It’s possible you’ll get used to the cold after a few days, so how warm you want to pack depends on how high up you’re going.

  • Transportation Tips?

    I am a fan of walking, so mainly that; besides that, since we were travelling with someone that couldn’t walk as much, tour buses were great to visit nice spots in each city.

  • Booking details?

    I make most of my reservations on Expedia or directly on the hotel websites.
