It’s been a while since I’ve had this item on the blog but it’s back with a Cosplayer of the Month May. I love exploring the world of cosplay, even though I don’t really cosplay myself. But I wanted to put some people in the spotlight who do an amazing job with it but hardly get the attention they deserve. So every month I will put one cosplayer in the spotlight. Together with the cosplayer I will select my/their favourite cosplay and use that as a base to interview them! Cosplayer of May: Dreams Beyond Cosplay.
I already wrote about Knokke, a city at the Belgian coastline, before. This city is all about “seeing people and being seen”. Oostende is another city which is situated near the Belgian beaches, but it is completely different from Knokke. To me, Oostendeis much more down to earth. It doesn’t make it any less exciting to visit than Knokke, you just go there for other reasons.
Many blogs have already written about this hotspot in Amsterdam: HappyHappyJoyJoy – a restaurant owned by chef Julius Jaspers. HappyHappyJoyJoy serves dishes from a variety of cuisines, namely Malay, Vietnamese, Thai, Indonesian, Chinese, and Korean. And not only the dishes are from different countries, so are the drinks. And all of this is inspired by street food and shared dining – this screams like the perfect evening out, right? Last week I finally went there together with a friend, and jummy, really you need to go there the next time you visit Amsterdam.
Bucket lists are usually quite endless, so is mine. Whether it is regarding restaurants I still want to visit, countries I want to go to, or things I want to experience…almost every day I can add something new to the list. One thing that has been on the list for a long time is visiting an ice hotel or bar. In Sweden there is the amazing Iceotel in Jukkasjärvi, which is situated in the far north of Sweden. Founded in 1989 it is the world’s first hotel that was made out of snow and ice. Cool right? (Quite literally 😉 )
