Aloha Hawaii!

•••
Aloha Hawaii! The oceanic surroundings, the diverse natural scenery, the abundance of public beaches, the warm tropical climate, and the active volcanoes make Hawaii a popular destination for around 7 million tourist per year. The amount of tourists is almost 5 times the population of this North American State! I don’t need to tell you this place is paradise[...]

During my We[...]

The coolest place on earth: Portland (OR)

•••
Last month I went on a roadtrip for three weeks. One of the best cities I visited, which caught me by surprise, is Portland, Oregon. Its hipsterism, the natural coolness and its weirdness are just amazing! A lot of Dutch readers have probably never heard of this hipster city and that is understandable, as most people skip the state of Oregon while visiting [...]
