A Tropical Getaway – Hello Mauritius!

(Photo: Ile Aux Cerfs)

Hi everyone,

The weather in the Netherlands is ice cold and grey these days – very depressing! Time to pack my bags and escape to the sun! I had to do some homework first – since I’m pregnant I cannot visit any destinations with a risk of getting Zika, healthcare needs to be good in case something happens with the baby, the risk of food poisoning should be minimal and I cannot do a lot of activities as I’m not allowed to do a lot of watersports, next level hiking etc. As some things cost just too much energy with ligament pain due to a kicking baby in my belly – tropical Mauritius is a perfect option! Let the babymoon begin! (Nothing is sponsored, all pictures are mine, scroll down for the Dutch version and different photo’s).

Where to Eat & Drink in Capetown

(Photo: View during wine tasting in Stellenbosch)

Hi everyone!

As some of you know; my favorite destination in the whole world is Capetown. I like to go there at least once a year preferably for holidays, but the layovers for work are also very welcome. As I know Capetown well enough now, I have my favorite places I like to visit every time I’m back. Thereby – I get the question quite often where to go / eat / drink or do a wine tasting – So let’s write it down in a new blogpost! As Stellenbosch and Franschhoek are not that far away from Capetown I will mention my favorite spots over there as well. (all photos are taken by me, nothing is sponsored)

The Nature of Namibia

Hi everyone,

During my trips I visited a lot of photogenic spots all over the world. On of them is the Sossusvlei and Deadvlei in Namibia, Located in the Namib-Naukluft National Park. Namibia is located in Africa, (at the left-side) above South Africa and it has many different landscapes. De sossusvlei is part of the Namib desert and known about it’s red dunes. We planned this particular area at the end of our 2 week trip across the country, so we drove a lot already in a big 4W drive. (All pictures in this blogpost are taken by me – nothing is sponsored)

Here are my top 10 favorite beaches: (all pictures are taken by me)

Hi everyone,

During my last holidays I went to my favorite place on earth and that is Capetown. Personally I think Capetown is even better than heaven. I know Capetown almost as good as Amsterdam and I love the sights, the good food, the atmosphere, the nice restaurants and bars, the beaches and the wine estates near the city. I will post more about Capetowns hotspots later. (nothing is sponsored – all pictures are taken by me)
