Chilling out in a sea of seven million flowers. šŸŒ¹ #Keukenhof is the largest flower garden in the world. I dont think "garden" describes it well enough though, it's more like a gigantic flower theme park. It's got restaurants, boat rides, windmills, indoor flower shows and more. You need at least a few hours to see the whole thing. The park also offers bike rentals in case you want to cycle around and explore the fields nearby. . . . . . . . . . . . . #Lisse#Keukenhof#keukenhofgardens#visitkeukenhof#GardenOfEurope#Netherlands#HollandĀ #thisisholland#igershollandĀ #NetherlandsVacation#bestofnetherlandsĀ #europe#europe_vacationsĀ #dametraveler#sheisnotlostĀ #femmetravelĀ #travelinladiesĀ #traveldreamseekersĀ #gltloveĀ #thetravelwomen#womentravelĀ #girlaroundworld#girlsjustwannatravel#passionpassportĀ #iamtbĀ #teamkaptainkenny#canoncanada#citizenfemme

Admiring the #tulips from afar. šŸŒ· Not sure if you guys have heard, but there have been lots of stories of tourists/Instagrammers trespassing into private farms and trampling on the #flowers just to get the perfect selfie. One farmer has reported 10,000 euros worth of damage to his plants. This is just wrong on so many levels. I know the temptation of wanting to capture "that" shot but it's important to remember that no photo is worth ruining someone's livelihood. If you do come to #Holland during #tulip season, please always get permission before entering the fields or better yet, just enjoy them from afar like me. I promise you will still get a great picture.Ā ā˜ŗ . . . . . . . . . . . #Lisse#Keukenhof#GardenOfEurope#NetherlandsĀ #thisisholland#igershollandĀ #NetherlandsVacation#bestofnetherlandsĀ #europe#europe_vacationsĀ #dametraveler#sheisnotlostĀ #femmetravelĀ #travelinladiesĀ #traveldreamseekersĀ #gltloveĀ #thetravelwomen#womentravelĀ #girlaroundworld#girlsjustwannatravel#passionpassportĀ #iamtbĀ #teamkaptainkenny#canoncanada#citizenfemme

If this doesn't inspire you to go to #Luxembourg then I dont know what will. šŸ˜‚ I found this spot and camped out for almost two hours just so I could get a shot of the sun going down. The top level is where you'll find the Old City of #Luxembourg and the lower part is the #Grund district. If you're looking for good food in the Grund, head to Brasserie Bosso to pig out on big portions of schnitzel, spatzle and potato pancakes. šŸ˜‹šŸ˜‹ . . . . . . . . . . #VisitLuxembourg#igersluxembourg#europe_vacatons#europe#DTbehindthelens#gltlove#teamkaptainkenny#canoncanada#europe_tourist#fodorsonthego#LuxembourgCity#Luxembourg#beautifuldestinations#lpfanphoto#culturetrip#tlpicks#bbctravel#grunddistrict#traveldudes

Things you may not have known about #Luxembourg šŸ‡±šŸ‡ŗ: . 1) šŸ° #ViandenCastle is the country's most famous #castle. It was constructed between the 11th to14th century (still blows my mind how old things are in #Europe). The adorable town beside it looks straight out of Beauty and the Beast and Victor Hugo lived there for a few months in 1871. 2) šŸ½ The food is a delicious blend of French and German cuisine. You can expect French-quality cooking with German-sized portions. oh yes, oh yes!Ā šŸ˜‹ 3)šŸ—ŗ Luxembourg is the 7th smallest country in Europe with half a million people living in it. What's crazy is that almost half of its workforce commutes in every day from Belgium, France and Germany. 4)šŸŒ‡ You'll find 17km of underground tunnels in #LuxembourgCity. You can even walk through them too.Ā  5)šŸ’³ You can take advantage of the sweet Luxembourg Card. It gets you free entry to all the museums and attractions around the country and includes unlimited travel on public transportation. It only cost me 20 euros for a 2-day pass. A trip to Luxembourg doesn't need to break the bank.Ā šŸ˜‰ . . . . . . . . . . #VisitLuxembourg#ChateauduVianden#Vianden#igersluxembourg#europe_vacatons#dametraveler#sheisnotlost#femmetravel#travelinladies#traveldreamseekers#citizenfemme#iammissadventure#gltlove#teamkaptainkenny#travelgirlscollective#iamtb#canoncanada#europe_tourist#fodorsonthego

I'm back from my Instagram break! šŸ˜€ I had all these photos to share but my laptop died a while back so I couldn't get them off my DSLR.Ā What have I missed in the past two months? On my end, I've just been working like a dog (think 12- to 16-hour days 6 days a week šŸ˜„) BUT it is seriously paying off because I am on track to hit all the financial goals I've made for myself this year šŸ’° (YASS āœŠ). I also got to take a few trips including one to #Luxembourg! This cute little country is seriously underrated and one of the best places for a weekend getaway in my opinion. I will tell you more about it and #ViandenCastle tomorrow.Ā šŸ˜‰ . . . . . . . . . . . #VisitLuxembourg#LuxembourgCity#ChateauduVianden#Vianden#igersluxembourg#castle#europe#europe_vacatons#dametraveler#sheisnotlost#femmetravel#travelinladies#traveldreamseekers#citizenfemme#iammissadventure#gltlove#teamkaptainkenny#travelgirlscollective#iamtb#canoncanada#europe_tourist#fodorsonthego

If you won the lottery today šŸ’°, where in the world would you run off to first? šŸƒ I think I'd pick the #USA just to experience these #desert sunrises again. šŸ˜ I've also been writing loads of travel articles on different US states and realized there's still so much I need to see. Like how awesome would it be to explore the badlands in North Dakota, take a road trip down California's coast and gorge on all the fried chicken and BBQ in Tennessee? . . . . . . . . . . . . . #MonumentValley#Arizona#utah#monumentvalleynavajotribalpark#visittheusa#yesvisitutah#visitarizona#beautifuldestinations#iamtb#dametraveler#sheisnotlost#femmetravel#gltlove#darlingescapes#thetravelwomen#girlaroundworld#travelinladies#womentravel#traveldreamseekers#culturetrip#passionpassport#tlpicks

What's the worst airline you've ever had to deal with? āœˆ I had a TERRIBLE experience withĀ @easyjet today. šŸ˜– They lost my bag a while back and gave me a voucher for a future flight with them. The voucher can't be used online, I have to call them to use it. Fair enough. So today I call them and they tell me the flight I want is DOUBLE THE PRICE compared to what I see on their website. I askedĀ what's up with that? They say they add on fees when you get a person to book it for you. How is this fair whenĀ you get a voucher that can only be redeemed over the phone? šŸ˜¦They say that's just how it is BUT I can book the flight I want online and then call back and they can redeem the voucher and send the amount back to my credit card. I was pretty sceptical about this but the woman on the phone reassured me and said she just did this for someone yesterday. Okay, so I hang up, purchase the flight and call EasyJet back. I explain the situation to the new person and they rudely say "no, we don't EVER do something like that". ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I pleaded and even gave the name of the woman I just spoke to but NOPE, they won't do anything.Ā šŸ˜³šŸ˜³šŸ˜³šŸ˜³ Anyone else have an airline horror story to share? . . . . . . . . . . . . . #Chamonix#France#FrenchAlps#chamonixmontblanc#topfrancephoto#hello_france#Francefr#igersfrance#dametravelerĀ #femmetravel#sheisnotlost#gltlove#girlaroundworld#traveldreamseekers#travelinladies#passionpassport#iamtb#teamkaptainkenny#travelgirlscollective#beautifuldestinations#culturetrip#tlpicks#bbctravel#canoncanada

I can't believe there's over 3000 of you joining me on this crazy adventure called life. I haven't met most of you in real life (yet) and thought I'd introduce myself and share some things you may not have known about me:Ā  1)šŸ‡ØšŸ‡¦ I'm Canadian! Born and raised in Vancouver (Coquitlam to be exact if you know where that is). Some people thought I was from the Netherlands but nope! I'm in the Netherlands now because my boyfriend is doing his master's. 2)šŸ“° I studied journalism in school. I had an internship at a major news station and it was there I realized working in a newsroom was not for me at all. I randomly fell into copywriting (writing ads and other marketing materials for companies) when I was working as an English teacher in South Korea and have been doing it ever since.Ā  3) My background is Chinese but I don't look it. I always get mistaken for Hawaiian/Thai/Filippino. 4)šŸŽ§ Music is a huge part of my life and I would live at a music festival forever if I could. Anything electronic is my jam. Artists I'm digging right now include @Lane8Music, @EelkeKleijn, @EricLuttrell, @Cristophmusic and @Dowden_music. 5)šŸ„šI think eggs are the most disgusting things in the world. The taste, the texture, UGH just everything about them gives me the chills. 6)šŸ˜Ø This is a photo of me NOT in my ideal habitat. Give me heat and humidity! I don't even need air conditioning when I'm in places like Southeast Asia or the Carribean. I think I may just be a cold-blooded reptile. šŸ 7)šŸŒ I've been to 76 countries and am trying to make it to 100 before 30. Places I'm DYING to go to are the Faroe Islands, Iran,Ā Uzbekistan,Ā Namibia, Egypt, Sri Lanka, and Finland. . Okay enough about me! Now it's your turn to share something about yourself that I don't know. . . . . . . . . . #Chamonix#France#FrenchAlps#chamonixmontblanc#topfrancephoto#hello_france#Francefr#igersfrance#dametravelerĀ #femmetravel#sheisnotlost#gltlove#girlaroundworld#traveldreamseekers#travelinladies#passionpassport#iamtb#teamkaptainkenny#travelgirlscollective#beautifuldestinations#culturetrip#tlpicks#bbctravel#canoncanada

Is there #snow where you are right now? ā„ It felt so weird seeing mounds of powder after being in Southeast Asia for almost two months. Talk about a change of scenery! . I'm back in the Netherlands now and don't have any travel plans until the end of April (shocking right?)

This is the first time I've ever cruised around on a motorbike. šŸ›µ I've never liked driving and the thought of navigating a foreign country on a scooter always gave me anxiety -- but @dan_everettt believes you should do something that scares you every day, so I went for it and learned how to ride this thing. I ended up having a BLAST and had the best day ever exploring every palm tree-lined road, tidal pool and beach #Siargao had to offer. .

This insanely gorgeous islandĀ has always lured surfers in with its epic waves but it seems the secret's out now. #Siargao is quickly becoming one of the most popular islands in the #Philippines thanks to itsĀ oceans of palm trees, emerald lagoons, and cascading waterfalls. It's got this carefree, laidback vibe you won't find in Palawan and unlike Boracay, you'll get entire stretches of beach all to yourself. Better get here fast before the rest of the world finds out. . šŸ“ø: @dan_everettt . . . . . . . . . . . . . #thesiargaoisland#therealsiargaoisland#itsmorefuninthephilippines Ā #philippinesgram#explorerph#traversephilippines#itsphilippines#visitthephilippines#choosephilippines#dametraveler#femmetravel#sheisnotlost#gltlove#girlaroundworld#traveldreamseekers#travelinladies#passionpassport#iamtb#teamkaptainkenny#travelgirlscollective#beautifuldestinations#culturetrip#tlpicks#bbctravel#canoncanada
