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…

Sakura Sakura

It’s been 8 months (35 weeks exactly) since we’ve visited Japan and since then many people have visited this amazing country after us and asked for tips, which I have plenty. I never got to the point of writing them down on this webpage until today. Some reasons for this massive delay are rather emotional,…

Turkish Delight

1983. Daddy left Belgium with wife & kids to live as an expat for the last time. Destination: Istanbul. Fascinating stories continue to intrigue until this day. It’s where I learned to walk.

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…

Walking with Elephants

Ok. We didn’t really intent to go and volunteer. In all honesty, the BF even hoped to ride an elephant when we decided to visit the Elephants Livelihood Initiative Environment E.L.I.E., located 20 minutes outside of Sen Monorom (Mondulkiri, Northeast Cambodia). Spending time with the elephants was superb. You get to wash them, walk with them,…
