Since its opening in 2015, it’s impossible to imagine Rotterdam without Bertmans. Though in the US all-day breakfast is a well known concept, this phenomenon has only been gaining popularity since a couple of years in The Netherlands. And for a unique, good breakfast or lunch this hotspot in Rotterdam Noord is the place to […]

Me lost in the huge corn maze

Imagine if you please; 3 kids aged 6 and 9, 2 toddlers, 3 grown ladies (we will leave the ages out 😉 ) and one gigantic corn maze. This is how we spent our sun filled afternoon and it was absolutely aMAZing 🙂 The smell of cow greets us as we enter the cozy little […]

Harry Potter High Tea

‘Attention all Harry Potter fans, you are invited to drink your tea in style! ‘ If you’ve read Harry Potter and the Neverending Rain then you already know that I am a big fan of the boy who lived. So naturally, when I found out that there’s a B&B in Wales that serves Harry Potter themed high […]

50! The big five-oh, the dreaded age milestone nobody likes to think about. For me that number is always there in the back of my mind. My father didn’t get to celebrate his 51st birthday. My mother did not make it to 57. When you lose someone young, it automatically makes you reflect on your […]

I have a dream 🙂 A dream to fulfill ever since the opening of the ABBA museum in May 2013. I have seen the fairy-tale of this Swedish pop group and I became a fan. I took the future and I did prevail. This summer I finally got to scratch this awesome museum off my bucket list. It’s […]

Like many others, one of my favorite tv-shows in the nineties was Friends. I watched every single episode at least 100 times and I still watch whenever I get the chance to. I lived through Rachel and Ross’ many break-ups (Oh how I hated Emily 😉 ), jumped for joy when Chandler and Monica got […]

Isn’t it funny how some people know us better than we know ourselves? I remember sitting amongst a group of friends once, cracking jokes and laughing. We were having a blast when suddenly one of my closest friends at the time, stood up and took me to the side. Once we were alone he looked […]

Unlike my husband, I am not really into desserts. If the main course is hearty and delicious then that’s enough for me. Once in a while though I like to spoil myself with a real treat. That’s exactly what I did this weekend, when I made these banoffee pie shooters. The combination of banana, vanilla […]

The funny thing about being a traveler is that you’ve seen amazing places in the world some people haven’t even heard of, but when it comes to your own country you’re lucky if you’ve seen the highlights. Every time I get visitors from out of town, I’m made painfully aware of it and this time […]

It wasn’t too long ago that I wrote a blog claiming that maybe we should stop planning every detail of our trips and just stick to the b(e)are necessities. As I am not really one for ‘do as I say not as I do’, I decided to put my money where my mouth is and […]
