As you know, we love to travel! Whether it is far away from home or a short drive, discovering new places is always an exciting adventure! And our last trip was to Dallas, a big city that is only 3 hours away from Houston. One of the most iconic hotels is the Omni Dallas Hotel and it didn't take long to decide that this was the place to...

I'm definitely a summer forever type of girl! That is why, since I live in Houston, I'm happier than ever. The summers here are hot and Fall is treating us warm, so I couldn't be more excited. That is why I still wear this cute off the shoulder dress during this time of year. Another thing that I love about Houston, is the food culture. Truly, this city...

You know how the most spontaneous things in life turn out to be the best things in life? Well, after last weekend I can confirm this again! After a very stressful week, my husband and I jumped in our car at 7:30pm on Friday night to drive up to the most special and historic hotel in Louisiana. From Houston, that is a 4,5 hours drive, but what can I say...

'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,...

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,...

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...

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...

Lovers, adventure seekers, wine addicts and shopaholics! I found you the perfect place to visit in California. As well as the perfect hotel, which is always playing a big part of turning your weekend-getaway into a success! So if you love tasting wine, beautiful beaches, art, restaurants and shopping, you have to visit Carmel. Carmel is a wonderfully romantic town on the west coast of California. It is only 2 hours...

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...
