This itsy bitsy Dutchie is as vibrant & energetic as they come, which is easy to pick up on when you see her zipping past on another run as she gets the lay of the land in a new city. When she isn't exploring her new city of Houston, you can catch her starting the day with her very favourite meal of the day: a big healthy breakfast.
prepare for a trip
Weeks in advance, I start making a detailed list in my iPhone notes of what to bring with me, preferably using subcategories: what to buy, what to put in my checked bag or hand luggage, etc.
Blauw - one of the best places to have a good Indonesian rice table.
place to go with friends
restaurant in Houston
State of Grace.
Running! I love to run early in the morning to empty my head, and in other cities to explore the neighbourhood & surroundings. Now that I'm further along in my pregnancy, I don't run anymore, but I do a combination of pilates, yoga & barre.
Jeu de Paume in Paris, & my favourite one in Houston is the Museum of Fine Arts.
Oliver's at the Zuidas in Amsterdam.
place to live
Amsterdam because of the "easiness" of the city & its people.
Barcelona. My parents have a cute little apartment there, so I go there on a regular basis.
place to unwind
Brussels: the city where my parents live & where I grew up. It's the perfect place to escape from busy life in Amsterdam & relax.
Again, Barcelona. It's the perfect combination of beach, culture, shopping, good food & drinks.
Light blue SuitSuit suitcase.
Jeans, loose t-shirt, bomber jacket & sneakers.
Dermalogica sunscreen & an e-reader.
travel bucket list
Now that I live in Houston, I definitely want to explore more of the United States. I'd like to tour along the west coast & go camping in Canada.
