With 37 beaches, none of which are privately owned, you’d think of it as the perfect place to have a vacay, come to your senses and relax. But, there is so much more to this island! I visited the beautiful Dutch and French part of the island during November, a month full of gastronomy events and festivities (tip, if you’re a foodie you should definitely visit during this time of the year!). And here I am giving you an overview of what not to miss!

Looking into where the trip was going more specifically, I came to understand that Urbanana is named after the banana shaped form of this region in North Rhine-Westphalia in Germany. On the menu: Düsseldorf, the capital of this region. Bochum, the centre of the Ruhr. And Köln, a bubbly metropolitan. Wonder what must see’s and do’s you cannot miss when visiting this urban jungle?
