Hotspots

Grab your bag and go to Pick & Spend (Amsterdam)! Last Sunday I was totally prepared to enjoy a good day of pre-summer… However, unfortunately we were cheated out of that 22-degree-sunny-Sunday! I therefore thought it was a good idea to soften the pain and to cheer myself up with a short visit to De 9 Straatjes. As I parked my bike on the corner of the Keizersgracht and...

Grab your bag and go to Lisbon, specifically Restaurant Pharmacia. Maybe you remember, but last year we went to Lisbon, a city that is very much worth a visit (check out the Lisbon article here). I still have lovely memories of this trip. Besides the beauty of the city itself, the temperature is great, the surroundings are extraordinary and the food is delicious. And there is one place in...

Grab your bag and go skiing in Italy! Although Easter has been a while ago, I still owe you this "postcard- story" from our little getaway in the Italian Alps. It all started when my boyfriend got this great idea! He suggested to go skiing during the Easter holidays. And although it was already spring time he assured me that there would be excellent snow cover in Breuil Cervinia, a small...

Grab your bag and go to Panini (Amsterdam)! My boyfriend and I passed this tiny restaurant at least a hundred times without noticing it. We practically are neighbors and we always walk past this casual Italian place whenever we go to get our groceries at Albert Heijn. Until last week and since then I regret the fact that I have been so blind all that time! Eva from Mrs. Anchelon invited...

Grab your bag and go to Central America! A dream came true and I have to admit that I had the best time of my life! I experienced ultimate freedom and traveled like I had never traveled before. As you might know, I just returned from a five-week adventure in Mexico, Belize and Guatemala. Last week Eva (of Mrs Anchelon) and I chit chatted about this big trip and she asked me...

What are your favorite Christmas memories? I have many and I admit that I love all the traditional activities that come with this holiday year after year. For me Christmas is being with family, doing lots of board games with my siblings, picking chocolates out the Christmas tree, enjoying the most beautiful decorations and of course...

Grab your bag and go to Foyer (Amsterdam)! This pop-up restaurant, that is located in the impressive building Felix Meritis, is pleasantly surprising! My roots are in Rotterdam where I grew up in a very warm family, with one sister and two little brothers and currently, I am the only one that is "Amsterdamned" so far. A couple of weekends ago I was happily receiving my grandparents and parents in...

Grab your bag and go to Lion Noir (Amsterdam)! In summer this restaurant is highly recommended as you can have lunch & dine in the fabulous garden. But also in the colder and darker days, this place should not be skipped by anyone! As soon as you enter this place and have been welcomed by the manager, you will forget that you are in the middle of vibrant Amsterdam!...

Grab your bag and go to Bakers & Roasters! Who doesn't fancy a good, long and extensive brunch with his/her best friend?! Especially on Sunday's - the day that it is allowed to do nothing, taking the time to undo all the stress from last week and filling up "the engine" for the week to come! So last Sunday, my best friend and I went to Bakers & Roasters located in the Pijp. As we...

Grab your bag and go to Mata Hari (Amsterdam)! It is hard to choose from all the great places in Amsterdam, but I think that Mata Hari is my Number 1! I already have a great fondness for venues that have a bar and a restaurant in one but I also love the location of this restaurant, “De Wallen”! Maybe you think that it is a strange thing to say...
