Heavenly food that will blow you away

It’s no secret that I love to eat. Add great food to a nice destination and that’s how I would imagine heaven. Japan is one of those destinations where eating well is easy. Before our visit, I had already booked a few higher-end restaurants: Joel Robuchon – located very close to our first hotel in Tokyo, Roppongi S (we didn’t go…

Our ‘Epic’ Baby-moon

Sometimes I wish I could go back in time to high-five myself for past decisions and actions. First, I would go back to October 2014 and thank myself for saying ‘yes’ to going out for drinks with this witty guy. Next, I would go back to the beginning of June 2016 and congratulate us on the…

Little mandarin discovering the Big Apple

“Concrete jungle where dreams are made of… There’s nothing’ you can’t do, now you’re in New York..” New York, New York. A city so nice, they named it twice.  Shoot me in the face, but it took me a few visits before I could fully appreciate the New York Madness. “Go to New York” they said, “You’ll…

The Canary Gin Bar: Home of Bath Gin

Gin of a Different Persuasion I must admit, when everyone suggested us to visit the Gin Bar, I didn’t have high expectations. Just another gin bar –  so I thought – so the hype isn’t just in Antwerp… After a day of shopping (Bath has an Anthropologie store – my guiltiest shopping pleasure – yay!), we…

Pieminister @ St Nicks

Good times with pies… Featuring on several festivals, markets and pubs across London and the South West, Pieminister was born in Bristol and therefore deserved a little tasting. Sarah and I were walking around St Nicholas Market and suddenly got mouth-watering hungry passing by the Pieminister booth. A simple pie served with mash & gravy…

Not your usual coffee bar: Playground Coffee House

A place where you can play games while drinking amazing coffee. Not the only one in Bristol, so I realised later, but a great concept nonetheless. The extra credits are for asking you which taste you like before serving you their perfect roasted coffees.

Hart’s Bakery

Tucked away in an arch just underneath Temple Meads station in Bristol, this little bakery is a true gem. Whether you’re just looking for some great coffee or in the mood for some handmade pastries, when in the neighbourhood, make sure to step inside! It’s location is convenient when arriving or leaving the city, just a…

Splurging in Seminyak

After a small – crazy love – detour, I went back to Bali to catch my flight back to Europe. Having spent less money than I thought, I negotiated a great deal in a 5* hotel for the previous nights, so my mind was already back to European standards. Arriving at Denpasar, this random – it’s fair to…

Turn On Your Love Light

Come as Guests, leave as Friends. This is one of the toughest posts to write. I have such great memories about Woodstock, that I hardly know where to begin. Let’s start with the breakfast. Because I love food. It is the first meal of the day, so I tend to be rather critical about it. Arriving on Nyepi, the…
