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).

Kimchi Fried Rice

I first heard about kimchi fried rice while watching Ina Garten's show on the Food Network back when I was living in London in 2012. On this episode, she went to see several of her chef friends and asked them what their favorite comfort meal was after work (mind you, I watched this a long time ago so it was something along these lines, correct me if I'm wrong). So this chef friend showed us how to make kimchi fried rice, and it looked so so great. Ever since I watched that episode, it stayed in the back of my mind but I had neither tasted or made kimchi fried rice up until last week. I went to South-Korea in December and brought back a big supply of kimchi, so it was the perfect moment to test this recipe and make it my own

Antwerp City Guide

So this one has been a long time coming. I've made extensive city guides like these for all the cities I've lived in: London, Amsterdam, Munich and New York. All but one: Antwerp. This is my hometown, and although I only lived in the actual city center for a couple of months in 2016, there was absolutely no reason why I hadn't made an Antwerp guide before. But now, I've finally made it and I'm ready to share with you the ultimate guide for Antwerp. Whether you're an Antwerp native or you're going for a weekend trip, this guide will help you find your way through the city and discover new places. Everything is on there: restaurants, caf├ęs, museums, bars, shops and hidden gems.

Stockholm weekend city guide

Stockholm has a special place in my heart. Not only do I love it because of the culture and lifestyle, but also because some of my closest friends live here, which makes it all the more special when I pay this city a visit. I traveled to Stockholm a couple of weeks ago, making it my third time there. I must admit that November is not the best time to go to Stockholm weather-wise, but since two friends had their birthdays that weekend I had a good reason to go. Since I tried a good amount of restaurants and walked around a lot, I put together a little guide which combines my last two visits to Stockholm, perfect for a long weekend!

The Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide '17

Someone asked me if I'd do another Christmas Gift Guide this year, so since I skipped it last year, I wanted to bring it back! So this year I'm back with an extra big one, and a pretty good one if I may say so myself. I've divided the guide into different categories, so whether you're looking for a gift for your travel addicted friend, beauty-loving sister, lover or food-obsessed cousin, I've got you covered in this gift guide. From cheap and cheerful to luxurious, there's a bit of everything in here. When it comes to gifts, think 'quality over quantity'. I think giving gifts feels even better than receiving them, especially if you manage to find something thoughtful!

Bali Food Guide

While writing this post I remembered just how good the food was in Bali. Super fresh fruit, the best plant-based meals, authentic Indo food and liters and liters of coconut water. If I could eat like this every day for the rest of my life I'd be a very happy girl. Two things you need to know about Bali restaurants: 1) there are way too many to choose from and 2) you'll always have a fantastic meal without breaking the bank. Our most expensive meal was around €50, three courses for two people including cocktails. This meant we feasted every day to our heart's content. I've got 16 spots I want to share with you today, in Ubud, Seminyak, and Uluwatu! This is part two of my Bali-series, so make sure to check out the wonderful hotels we stayed at.

Where to stay in Bali | Ubud, Seminyak & Uluwatu

I went to Bali in April last year, but I never really wrote about my trip. With fall/winter in sight, I think we're all dreaming of warmer places right now, like Bali! Since this tropical piece of heaven still seems to be a very popular holiday destination, I decided to write a couple of Bali posts. The first part of this mini Bali series is all about the hotels I tried in Bali. We stayed for 10 days in total and tried 4 different hotels. We found a little challenging to choose a hotel in Bali because there are just so many to choose from, and they all look incredible. To help you decide for your next trip, I'll tell you about the hotels we tried and what we liked (and disliked) about them.
