Christmas Markets in Amsterdam

Around this time of year, I start booking Christmas getaways for the following month. I don’t like winter at all, but you can’t help but be merry around Christmas time! Last year I spent five days in Amsterdam visiting Christmas markets and have my final holiday of the year. Read more

12 Things to do in Amsterdam

Amsterdam is known for its beautiful canals, 165 to be exact, and bicycles with an estimated 847,000 of them! I have been to Holland multiple times and like most people, fell in love with the place. Here is my little list of things to do in and around Amsterdam.

Turning 21

Turning 21

Around my birthday I have always written down a list of goals and bucket list items for that year. The same way people do with a New Year but more personal to me.

So, a few months later I thought I would reflect on what I have achieved so far and give you some idea of things on my list so you can see my kind of vibe and maybe this is something you could start doing in the future!

About me

About me

Hello and welcome to my first blog post! (eeekk!)

Growing up my family often joked that I should write a book about my life, my reply has always been the same ‘I wouldn’t know where to start’. So instead of a book I thought I would give blogging a whirl. Not 100% sure what I aim to achieve but why the heck not?!

I am 21 years young, living in East of England close to the coast. I have finished college, traveled a little and now in-between jobs making this the perfect time to set up a little blog! I am a self-confessed old soul, in my eyes nothing beats being cuddled up with a blanket, cup of tea reading a book or watching a good movie! However I also love being outside in nature and exploring new places. I have been fortunate to explore some amazing places around the world such as New York, Dubai, Mauritius, Italy, Spain, Greece, Austria and the list goes on. I’m looking forward to writing about them and hopefully inspire you to visit!

I have set up Travels of Eden to be a bit of a hobby to occupy me while I try to figure out what I should be doing with my life (I think its something the majority of us are trying to figure out!) It is a space for me to get creative and keep note of all my adventures past and future. However it is also a place to write about my ‘travel’ into adulthood, the struggles, successes and everything in-between, in hope that others don’t feel as alone.

I hope you join me on this new adventure and enjoy reading!
