“I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.”

Reizen…reizen naar andere steden, landen, maar ook fictieve werelden. Het uitproberen van nieuwe gerechten of iemand compleet zien opgaan in de wereld van cosplay, voor mij is het allemaal een onderdeel van reizen. Ik neem je maar al te graag mee op al deze “journeys” hier op de blog. Ik schrijf regelmatig over nieuwe hotspots en mijn reizen, evenals fotodagboeken van dit alles. Reizen jullie met mij mee?

Lissabon

Mercado da Ribeira Time Out

Ik schreef eerder al over de traditionele gerechten van Lissabon en een overheerlijke ontbijt hotspot, maar Lissabon heeft nog zoveel meer te bieden. Eigenlijk hebben we iedere dag zowel lekker geluncht als avond gegeten. En er is zoveel variatie te vinden in Lissabon: van de beste (rauwe) vis tot eendkroketjes tot overheerlijke huisgemaakte Iced Tea. Lissabon heeft het allemaal!

Lisbobn for foodies

Lisbon is a true paradise for foodies. I actually didn’t even know that it was one of the most thriving cities in Europe when it comes to food trends, but the handy magazine in the plane told me so 😉 We had done our research so we knew some places we wanted to go to beforehand and also stumbled upon some great experiences. Ready to dive into the food & drinks heaven called Lisbon?

Lisbon

I’m back from my holiday to Lisbon, and it’s been a blast! It was my first time in Portugal and I will definitely be back again (Porto is high on my bucket list). We flew from Amsterdam straight to Lisbon, from where it is only a short ride to the city centre. We stayed at a simple pension, but located perfectly – close to Rossio square. In this blog I’ll share with you how to get around the city and the things we’ve visited. I’ll be back soon with other blogs about food recommendations & excursions (outside of Lisbon).

Knokke and Oostende were already featured on the blog, but Belgium has more beach cities to offer! While I lived in Belgium for 5 months, I visited many of them. While some of the larger cities might seem a logical choice to go for – and don’t get me wrong they are – the smaller places offer so much as well. They each have their own charm. Combining a visit to different places in one day/weekend is very much possible as well. I will tell you more about that later on in this blog.

Edinburgh

Edinburgh is such a beautiful city. Has any of you ever been there? No, yes? Either way, it is definitely worth to visit. Today in this photo diary I’m sharing a few of my favourite spots (which also happen to be photogenetic, hihi). Please let me know in the comments if I’ve missed out on your favourite spot in Edinburgh!

EdinburghThe Royal Mile is of course one of the nr. 1 places to go to, and for good reason. The buildings are beautiful.

Amsterdam Kookt

The sun is finally shining! Or well..it has been shining. It’s The Netherlands, the weather changes here more often than I care for. The more reason to soak up the sun when you can though. What better way to celebrate the good weather with great food, music and lovely company? So, I spend my sunny Sunday with my sister at the festival Amsterdam Kookt! Amsterdam Kookt is a music & food festival which takes places three times during the summer, obviously in Amsterdam. All three festivals take place on different locations and the last one was at the Oosterpark, situated in the eastern part of the city.

Oostende

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.

HappyHappyJoyJoy

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.

Icehotel

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 😉 )

Knokke

Slowly, the sun is starting to show itself more. The temperature is creeping up a little bit and it is putting me in a pre-summer mood (yes, I know it’s only just spring!). Something that fits with all of this is the beach. Over the last two years I’ve visited many different spots at the Belgian coastline. All of them are situated in the same country, but all so clearly different from each other. Whether you are looking for a place to lay at the beach and relax or if you want to go to the best of the best beach club – Belgium has a place for you! I’ll spend a couple of blog posts on Belgian cities situated at the coast the upcoming time. First up: Knokke.
