A Laotian cooking course

One of our favorite activities on holiday is a local cooking class. These classes are generally quite touristic, but still allows you to learn and taste more than you normally would in a restaurant. On our trip to Laos we also decided to join a cooking class in the amazing city of Luang Prabang. One…

Photo impression Guatemala

As part of our 4 week trip through Mexico, Belize and Guatemala we spent 2 weeks in the latter, and in my personal opinion I liked it the best out of the three (which is saying something, as both Mexico and Belize are amazing too!) The country is still relatively unknown as a tourist destination,…

Switzerland

Over the last few years we have been in Switzerland on many occasions, but generally over the Christmas period. A few years back we were always able to ski during this time, however, the last three years, it seems there is virtually no snow around. This didn’t bother us too much, and we decided to…

Windsor & the Cotswolds

In spring 2016 we took our first road trip through the UK, and probably one of the most popular ones from London: visiting the Cotswolds. An idyllic region, with rolling hills and yellow sandstone villages. How to get there and around A rental car picked up at Luton airport. We rented through rentalcars.com, and found…

Belize

In 2015 we went on a 4 week trip discovering Mexico, Belize and Guatemala. Belize in this sense is the odd one out: as it has a distinct Caribbean feel, as opposed to the Latino influences that are common in this part of the world. Below a photo impression of our week in Belize.

What to see and do in Marrakech

When somebody mentions Marrakech most people immediately have visions of 1001 nights and Lawrence of Arabia, including me. Therefore, when we were looking for a holiday for a week (e.g. no transatlantic flights) Morocco came up on our search as a possible contender, and we were sold on the amazing accommodation, cheap flights, and the…

Exploring East Sussex and Kent

We recently went on a spontaneous road trip exploring the UK country side. This has become some sort of a monthly trip: if we have time and the weather is nice we book a last-minute rental car, rent a room in a country side B&B, and go out and explore! This specific trip we decided…

Photo impression Morocco

In the spring of 2016 we went for a week to Morocco: exploring both Marrakech and taking a trip deep into the Sahara desert for a proper Lawrence of Arabia experience: sleeping under the stars in the desert. Below an impression of this amazing trip.

Streetfood Sundays in Berlin

In Berlin there is always a market going on somewhere and food markets are pretty frequent too. Some of these markets are well established, such as the Streetfood Market every Thursday in Kreuzberg, and some are popping up out of nowhere. One of these markets is the Streetfood market in Friedrichshain. I went to this…

Understanding Berlin and its neighborhoods

Berlin is one of those cities that evokes images with pretty much everybody. Be it for the large amount of history, for the fast amount of techno clubs, or for the general bohemian atmosphere, almost everybody states that they fall in love with Berlin (or at least all the people that visited me here in…

Why I love cruises

I have been running behind for quite a bit now, but decided to finally go for it, an article about my Caribbean Cruise which I did in December. I know I have been writing about cruises before, and I also know most people consider cruises to be for old people, I just love it and…
