My Travel Bucket List: Eindhoven

My Travel Bucket List: Eindhoven, Netherlands [petiteadventures.org]

This weekend, I’m off to Eindhoven, Netherlands for what is most likely the last city break of the summer. I can’t really believe that this is our last planned holiday for the season, but so is the life of two adults with jobs and deadlines, and without trust funds. Sigh.

But, let’s be honest, a little travel is better than no travel, and I must admit, I am very excited for this upcoming mini-break!

Eindhoven is a city in the province of North Brabant, located in the south of the Netherlands. While it is one of the oldest cities in the Netherlands, it is best known as a high-tech and cutting-edge design industry hub.

Now, it probably isn’t the first destination you’d think of visiting in the Netherlands, and to be honest, it wasn’t mine either, but it is home to friends of ours and when we were invited to come and visit, we jumped at the chance.

I tell ya reader friends, it has been unpleasantly cold. Like wearing sweatpants to bed cold.

I am not impressed. But, I shall not dwell.

Although our month didn’t include an exotic or exciting adventure, June was a pretty great month on the personal front.

After returning from our Croatia trip, we spent a bit of time resettling and relaxing after our vacation before jumping back into life whole hog.

As usual, work was hectic and all consuming, but let’s not dwell on that because well, everyone works and it’s not really the most fun thing to talk about. Instead, let’s focus on what I got up to on those off hours. Those few precious hours during the week where I wasn’t working, eating or sleeping.

After what feels like months of cloud coverage, rainy and grey days, I’m very eager to get out and enjoy the sunshine as much as possible. While I’m overall excited for the season, there are five things, in particular, I’m looking forward to this summer. Continue reading

A Day in Liverpool

Petite Adventures' Guide to Liverpool, United Kingdom [petiteadventures.org]

There are some destinations we dream about for years. We read about them; plan for future trips, many of which go untaken; we save for them; and, when the time finally comes, we feel as though we’ve accomplished some big life goal.

We’ve finally done it!

And then there are some destinations we visit simply because the price was just too good to pass up. This is how I ended up spending a day in Liverpool.

The price was right.
