Texas | Houston City Guide

When I told my friends that I'd be going to Texas for a holiday, I got surprised looks, followed by "But why Texas?" To be honest, I wasn't really able to answer that question myself. All I knew was that in the small desert town of Marfa I'd find some cool museums and art, including the famous Prada Marfa store which you're probably all familiar with as well. But I had no idea what to expect from the main cities like Houston, Austin, and Dallas. We spent a total of 10 days in Texas, road tripping. I absolutely loved it and Texas surprised me in so many different (good) ways. So here's my Texas series, starting with Houston. Next up will be Austin, Marfa, Dallas and everything in between. But let's not get ahead of ourselves...

Bar Centraal | Amsterdam

This place is not that new. It opened about a year ago, so it's still new-ish to me though. Several trusted food sources promised me I'd love this little natural wine bar/restaurant. And I did. I love the simple concept of some good natural wine paired with interesting, delicate yet comforting food, shared with a friend. One of my favorite restaurants in New York (Wildair) did this concept so well, so I needed a new replacement in the Dam. 
Enter: Bar Centraal.

Things I ate in Amsterdam #1

A friend of mine complained this weekend that I don't post enough... and she's totally right. Let's say that a full-time job and social life are not good for my blog. But I'm trying and I am constantly taking photos, I just need to find the time to create posts. So here's one I think you'll like. It's kind of like a food diary, but then with all kinds of different restaurants and cafés, I tried in Amsterdam the last two months (more or less). From the best brunch to the tastiest truffle pasta, I've got some good addresses for you.

Saints & Stars | Amsterdam

So I know most of you don't come here for sports-related content (carbs over burpees amiright?), but I enjoyed reviewing some of my favorite workouts in New York, so I'm thinking of continuing and doing the same in Amsterdam! So what better place to kick off my Amsterdam-workout-content than the newest kid in town: Saints & Stars. With ads that remind me of Equinox and boxing bags that resemble those of Rumble, I was very curious to try this boutique gym which just opened last week. I tried both the classes they offer to give you a full-on review of Saints & Stars.

Hey Amsterdam

So if you follow me on Instagram, you'll know that I moved to Amsterdam. It's now my fourth week here and I finally get the feeling that I'm settling in. The first two weeks I lived like somewhat of a nomad, out of my suitcase, staying with friends. But now I've found a little palace together with my roommate, where I'll be a while! I lived in Amsterdam for four months in 2014, so it's been a while and I feel like I have to "rediscover" the city again. But I look forward to taking you with me on this journey, and this new chapter in my life (cliché but hey, I'm excited!) While I try to get the final bits of my new life here sorted, I'm leaving you with some pictures I took the last couple of weeks.

48 hours in Seoul South-Korea (part II) | Guide

You might have read about the first 24 hours of my Korea trip here, so in this part, I'll tell you about the second leg of our mini-trip to Seoul. On day 2 we woke up early to meet with our Korean friends, who would show us some good spots in the city. We had a late flight that night so had a whole day ahead of us to explore the Seoul!

48 hours in Seoul South-Korea (part I) | Guide

Seoul had been a dream destination of mine for a couple of years. More precisely, since I first tried Korean food in London in 2011, but the food certainly isn't the only reason I was intrigued by South-Korea. Over the years, I met some of the most interesting people from Seoul, who showed me glimpses of one of Asia's most important hubs for culture, entertainment and arts. It sounded like a city of contrasts, both very careful about preserving and respecting centuries of tradition, but at the same time being a front-runner in cultural development. We only had two days in this city, so we used our time optimally and kind of raced around the city to soak up as many experiences as possible (which is exactly how I like to experience a new city).
