Texas | Marfa (part III)

On the last and final day of our stay in Marfa, the tiny art-town in the middle of the Chihuahuan desert in Texas, we woke up to a beautiful sunrise. As you may have seen in the previous post, we moved from the Hotel Saint George to El Cosmico, for our last night. In this post, I'll tell you all about our El Cosmico glamping experience, our very special visit to Judd's studios and the famous Food Shark food truck.

Texas | Marfa Guide (part II)

It's been a while since I promised you the second part to my Texas guide / Marfa guide (4 months to be exact), but here it is. I couldn't not tell you about everything we saw in Marfa. It's truly one of the most special places I've been to in my whole life, and I feel like this should be on everyone's bucket list. There's just something about this tiny town in the middle of the desert. In the first part of my Marfa series, you could read about what we did on the first (half) day we were in Marfa. Now follows part two, a full day in Marfa! A little sneak preview: a lot of Donald Judd, 4 restaurants and one glamping experience.

I did 67 workouts in less than 4 months | Onefit review

Hi, readers (if you're still with me). As you might have noticed, I took a two-month blogging break. Summer, work and holidays happened. And while I'm still not sure whether I will continue updating this space on a regular basis (for the main reason that I'm behind a laptop 40+ hours a week so I try to use my "spare" time differently), I have missed sharing things with you! One thing I've been doing quite enthusiastically since May is Onefit. Mostly to compensate with all that time spent behind a desk. So in this post, I'll be sharing mini-reviews of ALL the Onefit workouts I've tried over the last 4 months in Amsterdam, and let you know which ones I loved and disliked!

Cafe Binnenvisser | Amsterdam

Within the first weeks of moving to Amsterdam, I already found of my favorite spots in the city. My go-to place for a nice, relaxed, delicious and wine-infused dinner with a couple of friends. Café Binnenvisser is kind of like your local café, except instead of cheese cubes and chips it has some fine snacks and instead of beers on tap, they serve natural wines. A little bit of New York in Amsterdam I'd say. But with an authentic cool Amsterdam vibe, which is mainly thanks to the crowd that frequents this place.

Gem | New York

I will start by saying that this review will not be 100% unbiased as my other reviews are. Gem is a restaurant in New York that opened a couple of months ago. This is nothing special, as there are possibly hundreds of new restaurants opening in New York every month. I don't have the privilege of knowing the chef personally at any of those, but I do at Gem. I got to know Flynn by coincidence last year so I kind of got to follow the journey of Gem, from the initial ideas to the final result. So of course when the restaurant finally opened I couldn't wait to try it. Last Saturday it was my turn!

Texas | Marfa Guide (part I)

After Houston and Austin, it was time to head to the desert, get out of the city. We stopped in San Antonio to see the Missions, did some mandatory shopping at a massive outlet shopping center, and continued our trip towards the desert. This post is all about the third leg of our trip: Marfa, the crazy art town in the middle of the desert. A place I'd been looking forward to visiting the most!

Texas | Austin City Guide (part II)

On our first day in Austin, we took it quite easy. We strolled around the city, ate some good food and chilled by the pool. Day two was a little more culture-focused: museums, sculpture parks, we did it all. I'd say that Austin is very do-able in two days. The only slight inconvenience was that day two was Easter Sunday, so the museums didn't open until noon. But that didn't stop us from making the most of our time. And the museums were actually really worth the wait.
