Now that April is over, I thought it would be a good idea to show you my travels of the first months of 2019. The past months, I explored new cities, did a best friends trip and discovered a few nice places closer to home. Ready to see my travels in the first part of 2019? Then read on!
In January, my boyfriend and I booked a trip to Porto. I always have a week off after my exams in January, but this was the first time my boyfriend was also free. We looked for a city that we could fly to from Brussels Airport, so we could easily reach this airport by train. Since we both had Portugal on our lists for a very long time, we quickly decided to fly to Porto.
Although it rained for almost our entire trip, we very much enjoyed our stay. It was very quiet around the time, so we could easily visit everything we wanted. I definitely got the feeling that I would like to go back when it’s sunny! Despite the weather, it was still a very relaxing vacation. We enjoyed some good food and nice wine, and took some pretty pictures whenever the sun was shining for a moment. Want to know more about the Portuguese city?

In February, we took the car and drove to Durbuy, the smallest town in Belgium. Because it was off-season, most of the shops and restaurants were still closed. However, we very much enjoyed the small place. The town centre itself is very nice and picturesque, but I would definitely recommend taking a hike on one of the routes!

In March, my boyfriend and I went to see a concert in Brussels, the Belgian capital. Although we both visited the city multiple times before, we decided to act like tourists and get to know the city a bit more. We searched for a couple drawings of the Comic Book route, which I definitely would recommend if you’re in Brussels. We also enjoyed a typical Belgian dessert: waffles!
In the beginning of April, me and five of my best friends decided to go on a citytrip. It would be our first trip together (except from some high school trips), so we were all a bit nervous. After much debate about which place we should visit, our eye landed on Stockholm. None of us ever visited the city (or Sweden in general), and the flight times fitted exactly in all of our busy schemes. We booked this apartment through booking.com (which I could definitely recommend) and off we went!
I think that we all loved the city; with it’s beautiful buildings, cool vibe and lovely museums. Despite being very cold from time to time, we still enjoyed our little getaway! Want to know more about the city? I’ve written a blogpost about what you should know before visiting Stockholm, and one with a four day itinerary!
As you can see, I’ve visited some lovely places in the first part of 2019. Let’s hope the rest of the year is as nice as the first months! What do you think of my travels in the first part of 2019?
