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 […]

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 […]

It’s that time of year again, the holy month of Ramadan is upon us. Come tomorrow, Muslims around the globe will be fasting from sunrise till sunset. A time for reflection and spiritual recharging.

Unfortunately summer is still a long time away and temperatures are nowhere near comfortable. This […]

Whenever the weight problem in the US comes up, I always make it a point to say that if I were living there I would be very fat too. They have such amazing pastries, cookies, cakes, doughnuts, pies basically everything you can think of. I always have a hard time staying away from it all […]

The perks of having friends living abroad is that you always have a vacation spot 🙂 Better yet, they can show you all the cool places where the locals hang, wine and dine. It’s the best way to get to know a country and it definitely is the most fun way. One of the many […]

This is by far one of my favorite cafe’s in Rotterdam! I absolutely love Espresso Dates’ concept which is based on serving healthy, nutritious food with a (Middle) Eastern twist. Also the location, in the multicultural heart of Rotterdam, Middellandplein 21b, fits perfectly. Espresso Dates is één van mijn meest favoriete plekken in Rotterdam. Hun […]
