'Just sit down, relax and in a few hours you will arrive in paradise', the captain said when we entered the plane that was going to take us to Maui. From San Francisco it is a 5,5 hours’ flight before you are able to set foot on one of the islands of Hawaii, which is the most secluded place on earth. We picked Maui to celebrate our one-year anniversary,...

The beach is my favourite place in the world! I love the waves, the feeling of the sand between my toes, and the wind blowing through my hair. I gives a certain feeling of freedom, endless possibilities and ultimate relaxation. So when Fima from Fima Photography asked me where I wanted to take the pictures in this cute summer dress, new Polette prescription sunglasses and one of favourite...

I never knew that trees could be so beautiful. And so incredibly impressive! Especially when they are ridiculously large and covered in fresh snow. Because a lot of white flakes fall down on the big trees in Sequoia National Park in winter. We decided to visit the park only three days before we drove up there, which is a 5,5 hours drive down south from San Francisco. Very random and...

After living in Amsterdam for 5 years, I found myself being a tourist in this city after all. Because these days I call San Francisco home so that means that when we visited Amsterdam for Christmas, we had to find ourselves a place to stay. We are the kind of couple who love the charm of fun boutique hotels and bed and breakfasts as we find it a personal,...

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...

There is a new vlog online! And this time you are going to see everything about our weekend in Seattle! We went there for three nights, which is the perfect amount of time for a weekend getaway. We went to a lot of good restaurants, did a underground tour, stayed in a wonderful hotel and went to an American Football game! Just hit play and enjoy this vlog...

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...
