Düsseldorf is a great city that can be easy reachable by bus, train or plane from multiple cities in Europe, that makes it a good weekend getaway city trip.

So without further due, let’s see what’s my top 3 things to do in Düsseldorf:

Window shopping at the Königsallee, where you could gawk at luxury brand showrooms and at the same time enjoy walking along side the beautiful Düsseldorf canal.

Rheinturm or The Rhine Tower, to get a good glimpse of the city own vibes you could go to this tower and have a “look around” Düsseldorf while drinking your favorite beverage.

How’s your January going?

We’re in the new year and January is almost done. Instead of making a resolution and forced to face a bunch of failures at the end of the year, I opted to start planning my life better and  journaling all my process. Despite the hype of bullet journaling I actually love doing “my type” of  #bujo because instead of just writing down mundane stuff, I get to doodle, scrap booking, planing, and review my days at the same time. It’s more therapeutic relaxing rather than a boring thing to do.

So yes my journalling journey that started in January is going great so far, how about your January?
