On Why “Today” Is My New Favorite Word

March 21, 2013


Today is yet another beautiful day, made even more so by the fact that I’m spending it doing absolutely nothing at all. No chasing waterfalls, no wandering around, no pushing myself to see sights I’m not really all that interested in at the moment. Today, I’m simply here, listening to the sounds of life along […]

Early Morning In Bangkok, Thailand

March 2, 2013


It’s 6:30 in the morning and the sun has barely risen above Thailand’s capital city. On my way over here I passed people setting up their streetstalls, and tuk-tuks already merrily whizzing around. It’s easy to imagine the city hasn’t slept at all. Above me, birds are singing their morning songs and behind me, a […]

Looking Back: An Adventurous 2012

December 28, 2012


‘Tis the season to be jolly… and I can’t help but get a little bit sentimental. The end of 2012 is very near, and what a wonderful year it was! Like every year, I’ve had my ups and downs, but in the end it has been nothing short of spectacular.  I thought it would be […]

What A Difference A Day Made

December 14, 2012


I felt like the worst girlfriend ever. Here we were, at Eindhoven airport, bags packed and ready to fly off to Rome for a romantic getaway. A boyfriend who surprises you with 2 plane tickets for your birthday, it couldn’t be more perfect. Then why wasn’t I excited? It’s not that I didn’t want to […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

December 4, 2012


So I just got back from Rome with a head full of ideas, a memory card full of photo’s and a lot of inspiration. But before making an attempt at trying to put down in words just how beautiful the city of Rome is (and how damn good the pizza was), I figured it’s about […]

CouchSurfing: The Benefits Of Hosting

November 26, 2012


“We don’t really have a lot of culture, here in Holland”, I heard myself saying. And I was completely convinced. Of course, we have our obvious clichés: clogs and cheese, windmills and tulips, sex and marijuana. But anyone who spends longer than a week in the Netherlands knows that this has little to do with […]

A Night in Amsterdam

November 7, 2012


Amsterdam; a Walhalla for those looking to indulge in some sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll. While all of this can be quite fun from time to time, when Nick and I went out on a date last week we opted for something a little more low-key; an evening walk followed by dinner and a […]

The Truth Behind My Choices

November 5, 2012


So here we are, almost 3 months in and I feel that it's time I reveal a bit more about myself. I want this blog to reflect my personality, something that would be impossible without shedding some light on my story. Understanding my present, means you need to know about my past, and you need to see where I've come from in order to know where I'm going. Let me tell you why I quit my career... Twice.

That Time I Missed My Flight

November 1, 2012


Missing your flight; it’s a travelers worst nightmare and recently, it became my oh so frustrating reality. The worst thing? I have no one to blame but myself. After one last sea-side dinner, our romantic week in Barcelona was coming to an end. Earlier that afternoon, I had spent an hour researching how and when […]
