Visiting The Christmas Market In Monschau

Visiting The Christmas Market In Monschau

Of all the Christmas markets in the world, German weihnachtsmärkten are simply the best. From late November to just before Christmas Day many German towns turn into picture-perfect fairy tale wonderlands. With food stalls selling glühwein, reibekuchen and Brätwursten à volonté, you know you’re in for a feast. And even if you’re not into the German cuisine, nothing quite beats the coziness of German towns around Christmas time. The weekend before Christmas we drove …

Travelling In Style

Travelling In Style

Things are finally winding down in this household. I’m back to work without the foresight of vacation and I haven’t started prepping for the Holidays just yet. With a laid-back week ahead of me I found some time to edit a few of the outfits we’ve shot this Fall and I want to kick the series off with this travel look! If there’s one rule in travel dressing it surely must be “comfort above all”! …

A Four Day Itenerary For Copenhagen

A Four Day Itenerary For Copenhagen

Copenhagen happened by accident. I know, I know. How do you accidentally board an airplane to Denmark? But you have to believe me. One moment I was in rainy ole Belgium, the next I was in freezing ole Denmark. It all started when my friend B, who I went to elementary school with, asked for advice for her solo city trip. I think she was doubting between Dublin, Barcelona and Copenhagen and needed help deciding. I shared what I knew, but didn’t have …

Tips & Things To Do In Edinburgh

Tips & Things To Do In Edinburgh

At the end of 2016 it became pretty clear that 2017 would be my biggest year so far when it comes to travelling. I had only just returned from my Caribbean cruise adventure and my next three holidays were already booked. The first destination for the new year? SCOTLAND! Edinburgh really stole our hearts the first time we visited. I’m not sure whether it was the charming cityscapes, the equally charming residents or the darn good pub food, it was clear that we’d …

New York, New York

New York, New York

Day 1: Williamsburg, Maman Coffee & The Daily Show From the tropical rainforest straight to the concrete jungle where dreams are made of. Or as I mostly saw it: from 30°C straight to -5. New York welcomed us into its ice cold arms, just the way it did when we first visited all the way back in 2012. Started our days in NYC the only way I know how: with coffee! Toby’s Estate is a specialty coffee roaster and bar located in the …

Docks Bruxsel Food Court & White Cinema

Docks Bruxsel Food Court & White Cinema

It’s not every day that a new shopping center opens its doors in teeny tiny Belgium, so when that happens you know everyone is going to be all about it! The buzz around Docks Bruxsel hasn’t calmed down since its opening in late 2016 and I had been dying to pay a visit. When my blogger buddy Eline asked me if I wanted to join her for the blogger presentation of the food court I jumped for joy! To Brussels we went! …

A Hipster Guide to Cozumel, Mexico

A Hipster Guide to Cozumel, Mexico

Mexico, land of taco’s and Tequila, was the very last stop before our ship returned to Miami. I hadn’t read up on the city and from what I knew it was a shopping place for tourists. Playa del Carmen and Tulum aren’t far off, so I was expecting Cozumel to be buzzing with people. In reality, Cozumel was the most peaceful and calm place we visited and quite possibly the most colorful too. Let’s take a …

La Pura Vida in Puerto Limòn, Costa Rica

La Pura Vida in Puerto Limòn, Costa Rica

Puerto Limòn was one of my favorite stops during our MSC Cruise. Known as the land of Sloths, bananas and coffee I should have know even before docking into the port that this day was going to be a good one! “First things first!” we thought and we went off to explore the city center. It’s a very small town that you can easily cover on foot in just a few short hours. First we walked through the busy …

Monkey Business on the Panama Canal

Monkey Business on the Panama Canal

After our visit to colorful Cartagena our ship made way for the port of Cristóbal, Panama. Cristóbal seems to have a bad reputation. We were adviced by our agency to book an excursion for the day and there was talk about holdups and armed robberies on the ship. Once we arrived there was police all around our cruise ship. We had docked in the port itself, next to a line of container ships. After breakfast we got on board of an …

The Colors of Cartagena, Colombia

The Colors of Cartagena, Colombia

Arrrr, welcome to Cartagena! When leaving the cruise terminal we were greeted by a rather feathery welcome committee. Apart from a dozen Ara’s there were a flock of flamingo’s and some devilishly looking predatory birds in what seemed to be a mini zoo. It was a little strange, but a lot of fun to be welcomed into the city this way! As colorful as the animals were, so was the city! We walked from the terminal to the Old Town so …

A Day At Dunn’s River Falls in Ochos Rios

A Day At Dunn’s River Falls in Ochos Rios

Jamaica was the first of the 5 stops of our cruise through the Caribbean sea. I knew little about the country, but rumors were that it’s one of the world’s top destinations for beach weddings. I’m not the beach-y type, but I must admit that I was curious to learn why everybody seems to love the white sands, clear blue waters, palmtrees and dolphins so much. Yes my friends, there were dolphins! As the ship came sailing in, everyone stood …
