We were truly lucky to spend two days in Lake Tahoe, a beautiful place at the border of California and Nevada. In summer you can go on the greatest outdoors activities like biking, hiking and sailing, but also in winter it is a great place to be as it turns into a true Winter Wonderland. There are several areas where you can ski while you are overlooking the sapphire-blue waters...

As I told you in this article last week, I don't set any new year resolutions. However, I do like to make a lot of new travel plans. As I live in the USA, I made a list of the most amazing places in this country that I would love to visit in 2017. As always, my list is quite extensive (a girl can dream right) but I limited...

There are a few typical Dutch things I miss now that I live the expat life in San Francisco. So when we were back in Amsterdam for Christmas I made sure I feed those cravings. Like eating 'bitterballen' (kind of fried meatballs) and 'ontbijtkoek' (kind of honey cake) as well as visiting my favourite places. Like the Museum of Bags and Pursus (Tassenmuseum Hendrikje). As I am a big baglover,...

Let's face it: brunch is the only reason to get out of bed in the weekend! It feels like a party as brunch is having breakfast at lunch time! And if you do it right, there is booze involved as well;)! I'm very lucky to live in a city where they know to do brunch at best! That is why I wanted to publish the ultimate guide for the best...

Wow!! The Flintcreek restaurant itself is worth a trip to Seattle. Whether you go here for brunch, happy hour or dinner, you won't regret it. Flintcreek Cattle Co. is a wonderful restaurant with a welcoming bar in a warm and fun atmosphere. They take their mission, serving premium meats sourced from well managed small scale ranches, very seriously. Flintcreek was inspired by the free range cattlemen on the golden hills...

Carmel is known for its beaches, food and art galleries. But Carmel (and the adjacent town Monterey) is also home to many vine yards, wineries and tasting rooms. That is why we went wine tasting in Carmel when we enjoyed a lovely getaway last weekend! Ag Venture Tours & Consulting is the best and oldest guided tour company in the area and is Central California's leader in educational tours since...

One of the first places that caught my eye when I did my Instagram research for places to visit in Seattle, was Saint Helens Cafe (click here to visit their website). With its lovely interior and delicious food that is so well presented, it was very hard to miss. Saint Helens is an American style brasserie located along the Burke Gilman trail in the upcoming Laurelhurst neighbourhood of Seattle. When...

So when my husband asked me whether I wanted to go to Seattle, the answer was simple. This city had been on top of my bucket list for a long time, so I was very excited to finally go there. And when I asked my best friend 'Google' to find me a 'romantic boutique hotel', Hotel Ändra in Seattle popped up. This hotel has the best location, had the best reviews...
