What I Did Last Summer, Part I: Stockholm

It’s excruciating to wait for your summer vacation while you start to see every one of your colleagues starting theirs and it starts to get really quiet in the office. So here I am still planning mine and just flipping through my archives from the past for some inspiration. And then I remembered, I never […]

Getting Hammered at Porto São João!

Phew! Feels good to be back. After a month of hiatus, well, not really because my instagram is still quite active. In short, I was slacking off. Well, not from work per se, because I was literally so busy but you know, instagram is the easy way to post. A few pics in, sometimes a […]

Night at the Museum

Maybe Ben Stiller has to shoot the next museum night in Paris. With the gigantic labyrinth that is the Louvre, he has plenty of space for his epic chases plus a collection of famous artworks to be brought to life. I have been staying here in the city of love for 2 years now so […]

Musée de l’Orangerie, The Right Kind of High

Before I came to France, I only had the slightest idea of who Monet and Cezanne were. Probably an art connoisseur is cringing the moment he comes across this page but yes, for an average person it’s definitely not common knowledge. Looking at their paintings though makes you feel a bit nostalgic. For sure, you saw […]

The Diamond City of Antwerp

When you spend so much time in Brussels, you tend to run out of things to do or visit. Normally, people flock to Bruges which is definitely picturesque. Ghent is a close daytrip destination offering equally impressive medieval architecture. But if you still have another day to spare, you might take a peek at Antwerp […]

My 5 Best Trips of 2016

The year 2016 was a bit of a hurdle but along the way sprung some amazing moments, too. There are usually two ways to end the year. One is to whine and curse at how crazy the world has been and the other, keeping the tragedies of the year in mind as well as all […]
