San Francisco

Seven weeks ago I arrived in San Francisco with my two suitcases filled with colourful dresses. It has always been clear that I have a great love for colourful apparel and that all black, grey or white - outfits weren't part my standard attire. Don't get me wrong, it is not as if I don't like neutral colours, but it just turns out that I always choose splashy tones first. And now that I live in San...

LOVE!! Yes, I LOVE to travel! The ultimate way to relax, to discover new things and to enrich yourself. Whether you go by boat, plane or car, as soon as the engine starts a new adventure is beginning. Normally I dream about visiting exotic places, far far away. But now that we live in San Francisco for only a short period of time, I want to stay closer to 'home'. Because...

Come sail away..! A quote that sounds very romantic and evokes a feeling of ultimate freedom. Because the wind can take you anywhere, to foreign and unknown places far far away. I didn't sail much in my life so far but since we arrived in San Francisco I was very lucky to have sailed on the Bay 3 times already (check out the vlog for more about these perfect sailing trips here)....

As we just arrived in San Francisco and go out to meet new people every day, I started thinking about what you should tell about yourself when you meet someone for the first time. That introduction is very important as it is the first impression to someone who could become your friend. So what to tell and what not to tell to make a good first impression? Obviously you do not immediately...

When I arrived in San Francisco, I was hoping to only see the houses we all remember from the populair show, Full House. However, I have to admit that it took me some time to discover the beautiful Victorian and Edwardian houses that are lined up on the hills painted in bright colours. Those colours actually enhance the architectural details of these buildings which have the appropriate name...

So if you have been following me on this blog or on social media, you probably know that my husband and I moved from Amsterdam to the other side of the world. Three weeks ago we jumped into the plane and after an eleven hours-flight we arrived in San Francisco. Despite the fact that we had to arrange a lot of things that come with a move like this...

Since we got in the U.S.A. it has been a party! San Francisco is a beautiful city with many different area’s, sides and cultures as well as many restaurants, bars and shops. If you follow me on Snapchat (BagatYou) you have seen that we already crossed the Golden Gate Bridge by bike, hiked in the Muir Woods, sailed on the Bay, biked to the Ferry Building, Fisherman’s Wharf and Twin...

This was the perfect Sunday Sailing in San Francisco. It has been while since I have been on a sailboat but the conditions were great: a great captain, perfect weather, a very nice crew and a beautiful sailboat! We were invited by Mark, a great guy who originally comes from the Netherlands. We only met him last week in the lift of our apartment building and decided to meet...

Finally I can tell you all about the big adventure that is about to start and the extravagant US sequin dress gives you a hint..! We.. Will.. Move.. to San Francisco! This Wednesday my husband and I will get on the airplane which will take us to the City by the Bay for one year! How AWESOME is this adventure, not to mention how romantic this year is going to be?! Exchanging...
