Jones ice cream, Berlin (DE)

As explained in previous posts about Berlin: Berlin is an ice cream paradise to me! So many shops that make real good ice cream… A year had passed since my last visit to Berlin… it was high time to work my way through a few more ice cream shops! I travelled to Berlin with a…

Two highlights in Kassel (DE)

On my way back from a trip towards the middle of Germany, Kassel seemed like the best place to stop for a break. To be honest I knew very little about Kassel before going there. Google kindly informed me about the city’s many parks and palaces, in particular the “Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe” park, which has been…

My unexpected visit of Gelateria Candiero, Maastricht (NL)

I really enjoy living so close both to the Netherlands and Belgium. The Dutch city of Maastricht is just 34km from Aachen, the city I live in and 28km from Liège. On one sunny Saturday at the end of April, I had intended to spend the afternoon in Liège… multiple attempts to catch one particular train…

Luicella’s Ice Cream, Hamburg (DE)

In March I had the pleasure of spending a very short weekend in the city of Hamburg, in the North of Germany. It was a rather spontaneous decision to drive there with friends who had never been there before. Although I enjoy living in Aachen, it’s nice to get out every now and then and…

Second stop in Laos: discovering the mysterious Plain of Jars

After spending a few days in Luang Prabang, I travelled 260km by minibus to my next stop in Laos, Phonsavan. The transfer from my hotel to the bus station in Luang Prabang was included in my ticket: I was picked up by a tuk tuk that already had lots of passengers/luggage, which didn’t seem to have…

Korean & Japanese-style iced desserts in Bangkok (TH)

Bangkok has so many enormous, often inter-connected and quite pretty shopping malls. They generally have food courts or restaurants on several levels. I really enjoyed wandering about and seeing the impressive selection of food on offer. Thanks to Instagram, I realised that Korean and Japanese style iced desserts were one of the ice cream trends…

The ice cream at Chatuchak market, Bangkok (TH)

As already hinted in my last post about my short city break in Bangkok, I had lots of fun trying various sorts of ice cream in Bangkok! 🙂 Thanks to Instagram, I had some ideas of places or sorts of ice cream to look out for…! Today I will tell you about the ice cream…

A short city break in Bangkok (TH)

As mentioned in one of my recent posts, 2016 was for me a year of travels within Europe. 2017 is different: I directly kicked off the year in South East Asia! Travelling to Thailand was not my original plan, but when I looked at flights to Laos and Cambodia, I realised flights had connections in…

2016 Traveller’s Scoops Award

It’s been half a year since I started this blog. My posts have included recommendations for 21 ice cream shops in various cities. Have a look at the little infographic I created about Traveller’s Scoops in 2016. The main criteria that have an impact on how much I love an ice cream place are: Homemade…

Glad the Christmas stress is over!

December always seems to be a very busy month, with all sorts of things to do and organize before Christmas! Apart from the usual stress of finding nice presents for family, here are some of the things that kept me busy: Time to enjoy Christmas markets and decorations … in Aachen I was kept busy…
