Do: Maastricht – The City

I haven’t done a non-reading post in a while and I thought I would switch it up with some posts about Maastricht. I got back a week ago from a short vacation there with a few of my friends from Delft. We rented a house […]

A lot of cities have light festivals during the darker months of November and December. However I have never seen one as beautiful as the light festival in Salerno. It is called ‘Luci d’Artista’ and it is displayed every year from November until January. It […]

This week I am writing about the first museum I have visited in Milan, since I arrived at the start of March. I went to Castello Sforzesco which houses multiple museums, known as the “Sforza Castle Museums”. You buy a ticket at the ticket office […]
