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 excursion bus. …

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 we could …

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 out on the …

Bienvenido A Miami

Bienvenido A Miami

I’ve always wanted to go to Miami. I don’t exactly remember where my dream originated from, but my best guess would be CSI. Horatio Cane and his team looked so fly rolling over overseas highways in their Hummers, with Ray-Bans on and Blackberries in hand. In the early 2000s that was probably the coolest things could get. I grew up. I reached the age where I was allowed a cellphone only to discover that Blackberry was so 2000 and late and that the classic …

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 and …

Vilnius Coffee Bar Crawl

Vilnius Coffee Bar Crawl

When my boyfriend first suggested Vilnius as our next destination I was a little unsure. Not only was I completely unfamiliar with the culture and history of the country, I also had no knowledge about the Lithuanian cuisine. I love food (don’t we all?), but from what I remember from my last visit to Eastern Europe the food is well… not my cup of tea. Filled with joy was my heart, when I learned that Vilnius has a lot more to offer than Cepalinai …

Postcards from Vilnius

Postcards from Vilnius

It’s been well over a month since K and I returned from Vilnius and I have no excuses whatsoever for why this post is up so late. The only reason is that the task of going through 300+ photo’s and editing a good few for the blog seemed so daunting on top of everything else I had to get done. Those of you who follow me on Instagram might have seen that we got the keys to our new home yesterday, so basically the …

My Rotterdam hotspots

My Rotterdam hotspots

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 my …

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 Brussels, not that I’ve …

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…

Flowering bluebells in Hallerbos

Flowering bluebells in Hallerbos

Years and years ago I made a bucket list of all the places I wanted to visit in Belgium. To this day, not many items have been scratched off, aside from exploring Brussels (which I’ve been doing lots of lately!). Not too far from Brussels is Halle, well-known for it’s beautiful Hallerbos. The Hallerbos is a forest that turns into a fairy tale-like scene every Spring. Shades of white and yellow slowly turn into shades of purple as daffodils and white anemones make …
