Last Christmas holiday, I finally managed to visit the country that has a special place in my heart, Turkey. I used to live there in 2011 – 2013, and without a doubt it was one pivotal point in my life. Living there on my own gave such a huge impact in my way of seeing the world. It grew me as a person.
We stayed in beautiful Lille, France for 3 days, hoping to get a little bit of sun but the weather seriously was not that different than it was is Holland :))
We went for a short trip to Antwerp at the end of July. The weather was not that much of a difference from how it was in Holland: warm and rainy. But we managed to enjoy the city anyway!
Seems like we’ve a lot of catching up to do. So let’s get started with my April monthly favourites, shall we?
If you ask me to name one shop in Den Haag, that I would enjoy staying as long as possible, it would be Babassu. Located in the the centre of the city, Babassu offers a sweet escape for anyone who loves a dreamy world (at least that’s what I am.. 😉 ) Whether you desire an effective and relaxing spa treatment, are looking for an exquisite perfume, or a special gift which you will never find anywhere else, you are in for a treat!
Are you an avid green tea lover like I am? There is a perfect tea bar that you need to check out when you are in Den Haag (or The Hague in English). Located in a perfect little corner of Oude Molstraat and Nobelstraat, this tea bar has taken its specialty in serving only organic, premium quality matcha (powdered green tea leaves) products, directly from the Japanese tea farmers.
This weekend finally snow came down in Holland! And luckily we live nearby the woods that was completely covered in white, it was so magical.
Here we arrive at the last part of my Winter in Paris series! I apologise that it took me awhile, but here it is!
On that day we went to The Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris, or known as Sacré-Coeur. It was located up the hill with an amazing view of the city.
We were in Paris last week (18-22 December) to celebrate our first wedding anniversary, and it was actually my first time being there! I always thought Paris as one of the most overrated cities in the world, but now i admit it is indeed that beautiful. And romantic. Oui?
