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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

We are up and about much faster than usual this time of day. I guess it’s the excitement for what lies ahead. We’ve heard so many good stories about it that we can’t wait to see it with our own eyes. Time to go! Bryce Canyon awaits 🙂 Since all the viewpoints are on the same […]
