Fifty Shades Of Fall Fest On The East Coast

Fall is here, hallelujah! And even though I was born in spring, fall is my absolute favorite time of the year. When we planned our 2015 coast to coast USA honeymoon road trip (yep, that’s right) it was a no brainer that we would start on the East Coast to finally experience fall like it’s supposed to be: during Indian…

The Grizzly Bears Of Canada’s Knight Inlet

I don’t know about you guys but seeing grizzly bears in the wild has always been very high on my animal encounters bucket list (next to swimming with penguins and hanging out with pandas). So when we booked our tickets to Canada we pretty much instantly decided on a grizzly bears experience to Knight Inlet with Tide Rip Tours. They have…

Travel Video Of Our West Canada Road Trip

Last Sunday we got back from our amazing road trip through West Canada. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook (if you don’t: you should) you’ve probably already seen some teasers of how freaking GORGEOUS this country is. I can’t get over its beauty. And it’s simply so good for the soul to spend a few weeks roaming around in…

3 Days In Vancouver Island’s Capital Victoria

The first place most visitors to Vancouver Island go is capital Victoria. Yes, named after that beautiful (was she?) British queen that has given her name to so many places around the world. Even though the city is still known for being a bit boring and mostly appealing to retirees, Victoria has been shaking off that image in recent years. And…

Snapshots From A Weekend in Wonderful Waterland

Last weekend the weather was so darn* good here in Holland, it pretty much felt like summer. Nowhere in all of Europe it was hotter than in our lovely little country. Ha! Crazy right?! Anyway, even though I love me some “hot town, summer in the city” we decided it was time to get out and explore Amsterdam’s backyard: the wonderful Waterland. Especially…

Spring Is Here! Hallelujah!

Even though we didn’t really have a harsh winter this year in Holland, it felt like the only weather we’ve seen since October was a not so fun combo of gray & wet. So when the leaves started to turn green, the flowers started to bloom and the sun finally showed up (and stayed!) the only right thing to do was to scream…

Why The Isle Of Skye Should Be Your Next Destination

As a gift for our wedding (see more about that here) one of our friends gave us a gift certificate for Canopy and Stars, a UK based company with hundreds of lovely and unusual rental cottages from British house owners. We spent hours and hours looking through their database and finally decided on a gorgeous – and I mean really freaking gorgeous –…

This Is How We Rocked Our Wedding

Who got married? This girl. Yes, ladies and gentlemen. After five years of dating and three years of living together, my man made a honest woman out of me. We tied the knot. We got hitched. We took the plunge. We did. Little Larey is now officially a wifey. And loving it, might I add. And since I am very…

Wonderful Winter Weekend in Wroclaw

Last weekend we celebrated my handsome husband’s birthday with a weekend getaway. Thanks to Skyscanner I found amazingly cheap tickets (like €45 cheap) to Wroclaw – a gem of a little city in Southwestern Poland. Truth be told: I had to google it. And when I saw some pictures of the cutest town square ever I was sold. And also: Wroclaw…

This year we chose to stay in the DoubleTree by Hilton at the NDSM wharf, the industrial and creative hood at the old dockyards in Amsterdam North. Since we have family in…

Stuff I Love #1

YAY! Little Larey Loves is finally live. I say finally because it has been a little pain in the arse to get this baby ready for the launch. Mostly because I’m quite the perfectionist, but also because I’m stubborn and I had my mind set on learning myself how to code (#nerdalert!), which turns out is not a skill to be…

Snapshots from Restaurant Choux

This month marks our three year anniversary with our amazing apartment at the Oosterdokskade in Amsterdam. If you’ve had the pleasure of visiting our place you already know that #ourhouserules. And even though we absolutely love our place, the location can’t be beat and obviously we have the best view in all of Amsterdam, it was a pretty big adjustment…
