A Blogger Trip to Amsterdam

A Blogger Trip to Amsterdam

What do you do when you are bored of your local surroundings? Well, find some new places to shoot your favorite outfits of course! I just back from Vilnius when Eline and I got the spontaneous idea to get in the car and drive to Amsterdam for fun weekend filled with shopping, coffee and Amsterdam-admiring. I was too tired to actually shoot my outfits, but I got a great bunch of photos that I wanted to share with you today! Eline from Luminous Live …

My Favorite Rotterdam Foodie Spots

My Favorite Rotterdam Foodie Spots

I pinky swear that I am not a food blogger, yet this post is 99% food and coffee. My food photography is not on a high enough level to compete with the real food bloggers out there, but I wanted to share the places we visited during our two-day stay in Rotterdam last week. I always dive into my plate without checking if my shots are kind of blog-worthy, so forgive me for the blurry coffee cups and such. I didn’t want …

Postcards From Rotterdam

Postcards From Rotterdam

Man, I think I fell in love again. Rotterdam, or as I like to call it “New York by De Nieuwe Maas”, had been on top of my travel list for a long time. I don’t know why I’ve never went there before, because the city has SO much to offer and is super easy to reach. Being only 70 kilometers from my home town, we can drive to Rotterdam in less than an hour! That’s closer than …

A Day In Domburg

A Day In Domburg

When my parents bought a caravan in The Netherlands two years ago I started a small blog series about the Zeeland region. After Middelburg, Yerseke and Veere it was time to explore Domburg this weekend. The weather had been really nice up until the day my mom, youngest sister and I left for our short getaway. No clouds or wind could stop us – something about pancakes for lunch – and we went for a walk around town and on the beach anyway. I left&…

5 hours in Amsterdam

5 hours in Amsterdam

On Monday I promised to share a mini-post about our mini-trip to Amsterdam. I got sick and spent most of Monday and Tuesday in bed fighting the flu. My fever is gone now and I’m left with a nasty cold, but that won’t stop me from returning to my blog. It’s been a while. K shared the Amsterdam lights festival on Facebook and asked me if I wanted to come with her. As if she really had to ask! …

High Tea at HoneyPie in Middelburg

High Tea at HoneyPie in Middelburg

This weekend my mom took my sister and me out for a high tea at their favorite place in Middelburg: HoneyPie. I had passed by the tea house before and had seen people having lunch out on their floating (!) terrace, but never took the time to test their menu myself. Having been to the UK quite a couple times, I have always looked at people having high tea with a bit of jealousy. It’s a pricey meal to have and as travelling youngsters …

8 hours in Amsterdam

8 hours in Amsterdam

On a particularly cold morning in late January I got off the train to Schiphol one stop early to explore the historic city centre of Amsterdam and finally meet my very very very long-time blogging friend Bas from The Dirty Velvet. We were leaving for Edinburgh that night, but since our plane took of late in the evening I decided to come to Amsterdam early and enjoy a day in the city. I was going to pay for a train ride to Amsterdam anyway, might&…

A day in Middelburg

A day in Middelburg

Ah, The Netherlands! I just spend a day in Amsterdam with Bas from The Dirty Velvet, but first let me tell you more about Middelburg. Being the capital of the province of Zeeland, this city could not be missing in my #GOINGDUTCH series. Zeeland is starting to become well-known territory for me since my parents bought a caravan there in 2014. I’ve so far covered Yerseke and Veere on the blog and I’ve also been to Vlissingen and Goes (but did not …

A day in Veere

A day in Veere

Veere, not even that far from Yerseke, is a beautiful small town in Zealand. Typical Dutch houses adorn the cobbled streets, the Great Church and city hall tower above the trees and the many terraces offer ideal seats for people watching. And there’s plenty to see, as you’ll discover after the break point! We started our day on the lake. We (my mom, dad, sister and I) toured around the Veerse Meer, a lagoon separated from the North Sea by the …

Yerseke: Mussels, But Not From Brussels

Yerseke: Mussels, But Not From Brussels

On July 16th, The 2014 mussels season was festively opened in Yerseke, and guess who was there? Me, my family and an awful lot of camera crews. Because mussels are a big thing in La Belgique and The Netherlands, and if they are ready for the harvest you’ll know it as soon as you switch on the news. My mom absolutely hates them, but my dad and I love them and therefor a visit to “mussel …

This Summer, We’re Going Dutch!

This Summer, We’re Going Dutch!

I lovingly call her “The beast”. It’s big. Growing up, my grandparents had a caravan like the one in the photo in the Ardennes. 16 summers have I spent there, and I remember well all the friends I made on their campsite. We used to gather with the entire family and have big barbecues and go for long hikes in the endless surrounding woods. When I was 12, my parents bought a caravan of their own. A small one that could be hooked …
