My name is Aurelia van Lynden.
Born in London with an Anglo-Dutch background, I have lived in and experienced many European cities but, after 24 years, have settled back in London again for the meantime. From my early childhood I have adored travelling through Europe and exploring its many wonderful cities.
My love for travelling and writing have led me to combine both passions and make this travel website
Upon preparing for a weekend break abroad I noticed a distinct lack of information, tips and options available on the web for mid-budget travellers such as myself. While the net has boundless information on cheap hostels, and offers a huge variety of luxury hotels, there is very little for those aiming in between the extremes.
So I decided to set up a website which solved this problem. It offers advice on a complete mid-budget weekend break away covering everything from which airline to fly with to which local bars are best to visit. It is combined with personal tips and recommendations, as well as a ‘blog’ of my experience in every city written about. This ‘blog’ does not aim to give an intellectual history of the city or a detailed city tour, it is merely a number of anecdotes and experiences from times spent in certain cities.
I have started with some of my favourite cities and will continue to write about other cities I know well over the coming months. I will also of course continue to write about the many more cities I intend to visit as a weekend break.
I aim to write all my content based on my own personal experiences and research, however if you feel that anything on City Turtle is incorrect or has been used inappropriately please don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
