Angers is a city in the North-West of France, located in the beautiful Loire Valley. Angers is home to Angers Castle (Château d'Angers) and the magnificent Apocalypse Tapestry (Tapisserie de l'Apocalypse).
I visited the Château d'Angers in March 2019 with my boyfriend. If you are an EU citizen under 25 you can visit the castle and tapestry for free. A full price ticket is 9€ to see the castle and the amazing tapestry. My boyfriend and I had an hour and a half to explore the chateau. The castle was built in 1230 as fortress because of its location above the river Maine, but the location was occupied as early as 4000 B.C. Angers Castle was in the Anjou family; it was occupied by the Dukes of Anjou in the 14th and 15th centuries. More about the fascinating history of the castle can be found on their official website.
Planning a ski holiday means a lot of preparation and many new things to buy for the first-timer skiers. It can be a bit daunting even if you like packing. There is always a chance that you might forget something important. Last month I went skiing for the first time and I did not know how and what to pack. I started by creating my first ski holiday packing checklist. Here is my final list with all the essentials you might need on your next ski trip.
I started a tradition at the end of 2017 to note down all the places I have visited during the year and to calculate the km I have travelled. At the end of 2018, I again listed all the places I have been to. My 2018 in travel looks like this: 23, 175 km, 23 different cities and 6 different countries. This included visiting two new countries – Poland and Spain. I went twice to Italy and I made the most of my stay in Holland by travelling and exploring new cities. In comparison, in 2017 I had travelled 14,089 km. I visited 19 cities, in 5 different countries and I checked off living in Holland from my bucket list.
