Stay in all day // Casa Bonay Barcelona

Of course city trips are about exploring a city. But what if you love the place you’re staying at so much, you could stay in all day? Tempting or total sin? To me it’s both. No city trip without exploring the streets, boulevards, museums and restaurants. Going out there, dive in! But what a treat to get the inner vibe of the city you’re visiting, at your home-away-from-home…..

Back to Los Enamorados //

New seasons bring back memories. So, when I saw Los Enamorados opened their doors to their sanctuary in the North of Ibiza again for a new season, I knew it was time to share my last season late autumn experience. And book a new trip to the north of Ibiza…

Hamburg // A Creative City

Hamburg is a surprising place. We made a stop in Hamburg at the end of our Scandinavian roadtrip on our way home in 2015. A great final of an amazing trip! In this post a small update about the cool places to go. Planning a new visit soon! Hamburg is one of those cities that need ‘unpacking’ neighbourhood by neighbourhood. It’s all there, but this city is revealed best when taking time, wandering or biking in the quarters next to the Altstadt or Neustadt. Favourites are Schanzen- & Karolinenviertel and St. Georg.

Walter’s grown-up style //

I already was a fan of Walter Benedict in The Hague. But last week I rediscovered Walter. The menu is still filled with not too complicated classics. The coffee is good. Love the burger. Nice wine-list. Staff still wears their smiles. I noticed the owners of Walter Benedict made some choices and changes in their interior. And my new Walter crush evolves all around these interior-choices…

Workstyle x lifestyle @The Hoxton

There are many multipurpose spaces in a city where one can meet, work, grab a coffee, have a drink, chat, have a business lunch or dine. Not all these places ‘work’ for me. A favourite ‘hang out’, meeting space, office, meet-a-friend and romantic-mini-break-holiday spot is The Hoxton…

Capriole Café // Urban Style

Yes. Another hotspot. Can’t get enough of discovering new places. Especially if those places are located on rough industrial areas as ‘De Binkhorst’ in The Hague, my hometown. An area that is developing rapidly. And although these developments are good for the city of The Hague, entrepreneurs, locals and economics, I truly hope the roughness will stay. Happy to see that the location of Capriole Café, spotted and renovated by the owners op Capriole Café, kept a sense of the industrial harshness of the area. I love style and design, but I guess the urban look and feel is part of the attractiveness of this place. Let’s dive in….

// Be cool in Milano //

Feeling cool in Milan isn’t difficult. Not only because this northern Italian city combines the famous Italian fashion flair with a rough sexiness; Milan offers so many authentic places and hip hotspots, you will feel the Italian power right away. Put your sunglasses and walking shoes on, or your highest heels if you want to be Italian ‘in cognito’. Sharing some of the places we spotted in Milan this November…
