Happy New Year!


Let’s make the best of 2015! I’m starting my year with a clean and fresh look, because today I’m launching the new and improved Golivegotravel.nl. A new year, a new look.

As I wrote in my Travel wrap-up of 2014 I’ve been pretty busy with creating a new lay-out. My previous theme was Twenty Fourteen, the standard theme of WordPress in 2014. It’s a nice theme, but as time went on I started to get more and more irritated. I wanted more and the theme couldn’t do more. Golivegotravel is a growing blog, so it was time for a new look. A few weeks ago I bought a theme I liked and installed it. And with a new theme comes new ambitions. I wanted a good navigation, a ‘Destinations’ page and I wanted to rewrite some of my old articles. All to start 2015 with a new and improved blog. I’m ambitious and so is my blog. Today is the day of the launch. Out with the old, in with the beautiful!

Yes! Everytime I see my new blog, I’m so happy. That’s the way it should be, right? Okay, there were a few moment of blood, sweat and tears, but in the end it was all worth it.  I’m so proud of my new look. Let’s take a look around, shall we?


New element

In the past I’ve focused on long journeys, citytrips and getaways, but I would like to add a new subject to the mix: the gems, more specific the ‘undervalued gems’. The destinations you won’t think of, and would rather pass by. I’ve got a weak spot for these destinations. In the past I’ve visited Russia, this year I’m planning to travel to Poland, and who knows what’s next. Perhaps Georgia or Transsylvania? I just like the misunderstood countries. The cultures that seems harsh and unfriendly, but once you get passed that you’re welcomed with open arms.

Hotspots & Gems

Sometimes you write articles that deserve more attention than others. A place, a spot or a destinations that impressed you so much that you simply cannot get it out of your head. Those places are gems. I decided to gather these gems in a new category, which you can find in the primary menu. Are you just as impressed as I am?

Curious which countries I visited, but couldn’t find out? There’s a solution: the Destinations page. Per continent I listed the countries and cities I’ve visited, all accompanied by a clear map with the countries I visited. How to navigate to this page? Simple. Just click the destination button in the primary menu or click on the ‘Where I’ve traveled’-text in the sidebar.
