Hello everyone! It has been a while yet again! I have not been so great at keeping up or updating the blog in recent months. That is because, many important life decisions had to be made and prioritized. Now what could this major life change be? Well.. I am moving!
Welcome back to Travelette. // Where on Earth have I been?
Over the past two months, I have been MIA from my blog. Although still very much present on social media. There have been so many things going on! Where do I even begin?
You probably last read, that we traveled to Berlin for 5 days in February; it was beautiful! We loved exploring the German capital. And despite having so many days there, we still did not get to see everything! We cannot wait to go back soon, perhaps when the weather is a little bit warmer!
My last blog post was a review of the hotel we stayed it. Be sure to check it out by clicking here.
Be sure to stay connected! I will soon be featuring a blog post all about what we did during our stay in Berlin. I promise!
In March, I crossed off one of my 2018 Travel Bucket List Destinations; Dublin! Not only was I able to visit the city, I was there during St-Patrick’s Day! What an incredible experience that was! It was my first time traveling to Ireland. I’ll be writing all about my experience in the wonderful city on the busiest day of the year very soon! Stay tuned.
We also had another very special trip during the month of March. My dad had a very big birthday! He turned 80 on March 30th. So, Matt & I, surprised my parents by visiting them in Montreal. It was pretty wonderful! I had not been home in over 8 months, so it felt so good to be back. Although it was only a 10 day trip, it was better than nothing. I can’t wait to go back home in the summertime!
Not much has been going on in terms of travel. It has been put on a hold due to many different things going on in our personal lives. There is nothing currently planned in our agendas, however we hope to resume traveling very soon. We expect to start again in the summer, but there is always the possibility of a small trip here and there. You’ll have to keep checking back for updates!
To stay connected during my “blogging breaks” be sure to be following me on Instagram, where I post regularly!
Until next time! x
Two weeks ago, we explored the beautiful city of Berlin, for the first time. We booked our flights, way back in November, when we found a great deal; $40 return for the two of us. Finding accommodation is always a challenge, especially when traveling to a new city. It’s hard to know which areas are safe, what is centrally located, etc. Luckily, we found a great place to stay in Berlin at the Holiday Inn Berlin City Center East-Prenzlauer Allee.
Last Saturday, we headed off to Berlin for five days. This was my first time in the German Capital & I can’t wait to start exploring! It will be our first trip to 2018, if you don’t count our flight back to Budapest on New Year’s Day. With so many things to see & do in a new city, I started planning a few weeks before the trip. These are some of my favourite ways to plan a trip!
Over the past few weeks, I’ve been really busy with work & recovering from a cold. As many of you know, I am a full time kindergarten teacher during the week. I was thrilled to see a new friend of mine, fellow Canadian, Ravlin of Earthly Mama, nominate me for the Sunshine Blogger Award. A million times thank you Ravlin, for such an incredible nomination, I am beyond thrilled! This is my first Blog Award Nomination & I am smiling ear-to-ear as I type this 🙂 Continue Reading
