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...

Grab you bag and go to Old School (Amsterdam)! It is as if you are walking the stairs on the first day of your new school year when you are entering Old School - the restaurant located in a former school building. You are excited as you hear many voices and laughter, will be seated next to new people and hoping that your waiter will be nice! You turn around...

Work hard, play hard! That is what we lawyers do! Besides the famous "vrijmibo’s", we go on grand voyages two times a year!

So last weekend, instead of attending London’s fashion week, I grabbed my bag and went to Lisbon together with more than 45 of my colleagues! This city was built...

And believe it or not, that choice is even harder than you would think. Restaurant RED is located in a beautiful canal house where you can enjoy your night in a truly Parisian atmosphere. I can...
