In the meantime I have not even been back for 10 days from my beautiful Colombia trip. I did this outfit shoot together with Karmen Cartagena – this is also really my favorite outfit from Cartagena and I think it fits perfectly with this place. These photos were taken in beautiful Getsemani. If you are looking for a nice photographer during your trip to Cartagena, I highly recommend her. I did this shoot during my last day in Cartagena. I wanted to have guaranteed good photos of my solo trip. I got about 20% off the original price on this shoot, as a partial collaboration. [Read more…]
Hi everyone. At the end of July, I went to visit a good friend of mine in Marbella for a weekend. Funnily enough, Marbella itself was never on my travel wish list, but during this weekend I went there for the second time. I’m normally not a big fan of jet set places, but it certainly didn’t disappoint. Early Friday morning, I left for Schiphol to start this weekend. After a long line of 2.5 hours, I arrived at the gate. I was on standby for a seat (if seat available airline staff tickets), but at this point it looked totally full. When I met the KLM crew, I was very lucky because I got the – in my opinion – ‘best front row seat’ (the cockpit observer seat) and was the very last one to board. Thanks to the efforts of this sweet crew and ground crew I was able to join. The entire flight was enjoyable and I spent the entire flight in the cockpit.
Hi everyone! Last month I went to Ibiza for 3 days. It was amazing and the island really surprised me. It was a last minute trip with a dear colleague just before my vacation to Mexico. It started at the beginning of the afternoon when we left with our airline (standby tickets) from Schiphol to Ibiza. After a wonderful flight with the lovely crew and sitting in the cockpit during the landing (which still remains beautiful, even though I have been a flight attendant for years), we went to the car rental that we arranged through our employer. Because Kanar – the colleague who was going to travel with me – drives an automatic car, I drove around the island on this trip. For me it was the first time to drive on a holiday destination, so it was very nice to have done that! [Read more…]
I can’t believe how fast time goes. Zakynthos has been seriously almost 2-3 months since I post this (Early September)! I will already tell you that Zakynthos is one of the most beautiful places I have visited in Europe and I highly recommend it! The flight distance is around 2.5 hours, so also quite close. This trip was a total of 4 days. You can do a lot more in such a short time than you might think. I like to go on an adventure or discovery. A complete “beach vacation” or “party vacation” is not for an adventurous and curious person like me. So I have to tell you that I really can’t spend whole days just lying on a beach. I prefer to travel (around the island (with or without a plan) with a car), sightseeing, discovering a nice new city and old streets, eating and drinking deliciously, trying local food, drinking coffee on terraces, taking lots of pictures with my camera, exploring the local culture of a place (for example, my Japan trips), visit viewpoints over the city or landscapes, get to know new people from all over the world, see beautiful places, do lots of cycling and walking, or on adventure/discovery… you name it.

Hi everyone. I made a very ‘special’ blog post about my Dubai trip at the beginning of May. I want to say in advance that this is a journey in corona time, so you can certainly have an opinion about this. But published negative opinions are not welcome on my platform. Nor do I mean to ‘motivate’ people with this to travel to a risk area and not to stick to the ‘urgent advice’. And, I would like to mention here, that traveling to (orange areas) is discouraged, but not prohibited. (Holiday to an orange area is therefore not prohibited, and the quarantine is not mandatory either) And I have been tested both there and back (3x in total). I have to tell you that this was a pretty pricey trip, because of the very expensive corona tests. The shared apartment, the crew airline tickets (IPB) and everything around it were not even that expensive.
At the beginning of this month, I went on a short trip to Split in Croatia. The country started to light up to me more and more, so I decided to take a short trip with a friend. The schedule was 4 days, but due to certain circumstances I unfortunately couldn’t get time off. It turned into 3 days last minute. Anyway, it was great! And that’s why I like to share my travel diary with recommendations with you.
I went to Lagos in the Algarve with my good friend Michelle, this trip had been planned for months. In this travel diary I give tips and tell you what we have discovered, done and seen in this 3 day trip at the beginning of Oktober. It sounds short, but by reading you will see how much we were able to see, do and relax in such a short time. The weather was clear and between 25-30 degrees all day, great!
Hi everyone! More than a week ago I left for Portugal for 3 days with a good friend of mine. It was really nice to be away for 3 days. It may sound very short, but we have done, seen and relaxed very much. I can’t wait to tell you much more about this journey. I shot this outfit at 3 different locations. This beautiful blue satin dress is nice for a chic dinner, but I thought it was suitable for this beautiful journey. The color is as blue as the sea. To get to these places I really had to climb a lot, on heels haha, but I am happy with the end result. Places where I shot it are Cabo de São Vicente, Ponta de Piedade and Praia do Camilo. These places are unbelievably beautiful, much more beautiful than I can capture with my camera. Recommendation to visit! [Read more…]
Last week I went to Malaga with my good friend and colleague Michelle. This city trip was a last minute decision, so that made it even more fun. We decided to relax for 3 days in a much warmer city to catch up, because we hadn’t seen each other for a few months. On March 4 we flew to Malaga with a very nice crew from our home base Eindhoven Airport, Standby. I had a three-day weekend, so as I had done before, a city trip suited perfectly. We arrived in the evening so we changed our outfit in our AirBnb apartment and then went out for dinner. By the way, our Airbnb was called Malaga City Breaks. What quickly struck me was the enormous hospitality of this city. [Read more…]
