Travel

Even though it was my second time in New York City, it was overwhelming all over again when I was visiting last weekend. After two years I finally had the chance to visit my dear friend who is living in The Big Apple. So from Friday to Tuesday she showed me around by going to her favoriete places as well as discovering new little gems. As I suffer of severe FOMO (fear of...

It's only two days before America celebrates her 240th birthday. And to celebrate this anniversary, a long weekend is starting for the American people, YAY! The Fourth of July is a holiday to memorialise the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. It was the beginning of The United States, the creation of the Stars and Stripes. As I have been very grateful to live in San...

There is an activity that recently has been added to my bucket list: camping. And then I don't mean staying in a bungalow or a camper; no, I want to experience the real thing by setting up my tent on an incredibly beautiful and remote location, where there is no reception, no wifi and no electricity. The reason why I am so excited about camping all of the sudden,...

Grab your bag and go to the Alder Inn Tahoe! I never felt more welcome in a hotel than here at the Alder Inn, a small boutique hotel in South Lake Tahoe. After the drive from San Francisco and spending our first day at the lake, we were happy to arrive here in the late afternoon. The sun was shining and the entire hotel was surrounded by big green trees. We immediately felt...

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...

Last call!!! Our last day in the beautiful Amsterdam has come as we will fly to San Francisco tomorrow morning. I can tell you: I'm ready for a new adventure!! We moved out of our apartment last weekend, hugged our family and friends bye bye and I compiled the best outfit for our flight to San Francisco! My mother taught me to dress in style as you can only make a...
