The Tourist

Are you going to San Francisco?

•••
Are you going to San Francisco? Make sure you wear some flowers in your hair... With those lines, and music flowing out of my car speakers, I entered San Francisco. All windows open, my head outside the car, while driving the famous red bridge. Sure all native San Franners thought I was one of those lame dumb tourists again. But hey…I loved it! During my We[...]

How the moral compass gets twisted in Asia

•••
Ask yourself; if you would get away with murder, would you consider killing someone? I’m willing to bet that everyone has entertained the thought of taking someone’s life at least once in their lifetime. I’m not saying these are serious thoughts put into action - only few people actually murder someone- but our minds can dwell into dark places sometimes and [...]

Manly Beach, the place to be in Sydney

•••
Australia is an amazing country! Who are looking for good weather, beach, fun, safe place and welcoming people must spend some time in the beautiful coast of Aussie’s land! The country’s life quality is not any news. Every ranking you look for best places to live you will find this country on the top lines. The tourists already know that and you can find Syd[...]

The Social Traveller

•••
“Tourists come to vacation, whereas travellers come to experience, and ultimately, to grow” Gomio.com Back in Ho Chi Minh City, one of my favourite hobbies was watching tourists trying to cross the street. Six million motorbikes on the narrow streets flooding every inch of pavement, like an army of ants marching through the jungle. The tourists would wait f[...]

De leukste winkel van Parijs: Colette!

•••
Colette is een van de leukste en hipste winkels van Parijs. De eerste keer dat ik er kwam, stond ik naast Karl Lagerfeld! Hoe cool is dat?! Elke keer als ik naar Parijs ga, staat Colette bovenaan mijn To Do list! Colette is een Concept Store; je moet het zien als een winkel met veel gadgets, de nieuwste high-tech, special edition Sneakers, beauty producten, [...]

Maastricht: Shop, stop and take a coffee

•••
Shopping and good coffee, two things I like and enjoy very much! So how about combining the two? In Maastricht the following three places are my favorite in-shop coffee spots: Take me to church: Bookshop Dominicanen & Coffeelovers. It doesn’t really matter if you like coffee or not, but if you are in Maastricht you should definitely pay a visit to the s[...]

Pretty pretty Amsterdam

•••
At Milk & Sugar, we all like some big city air from time to time - a lot of big city air, actually! I guess you already figured that out. Joyce and I had some spare time during the long Pentecost weekend, so we took off to Amsterdam, just to spend some time in the big city and wander around. When going to Amsterdam, everyone goes to the Anne Frank Hous[...]

Met de auto naar Parijs

•••
Parijs, je bent er zo met de auto, 4 uurtjes over de snelweg en hoppa je bent dichterbij de Eiffeltoren dan je denkt. Maar er zullen meerdere mensen zijn zoals ik die het rijden door Parijs liever ontwijken dan doorstaan. Te druk. Te hectisch. Te eng! Daarbij komt dat wij helemaal niet gewend zijn om al toeterend door een stad te rijden met ons knipperlicht [...]

Cassino Beach - Surf, Kitesurf & SUP Spot

•••
Rio de Janeiro, Florianópolis or northern beaches are normally places that spring to someone's mind when thinking about Brazilians beaches. Of course, those are really beautifull places that you can find in any travel agency's catalogue. In this first post I would like to present a very special but not that famous spot in Brazil - even for Brazilians. This p[...]

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 [...]
