Gifts and Goodbyes

Hello! It’s been more than a week now since I left the United Kingdom. On Sunday the 24th of March my parents arrived, and stayed for 2 days and nights. On Tuesday we stuffed the car with all my suitcases and bags and drove back to Holland. Leaving was really hard!! The past 9 months […]

Food, food and even more food at Borough Market

Good evening, Time is going by so incredibly fast! I remember my first post as if it were yesterday, but meanwhile I am approaching the date of leaving the UK… For personal reasons I am not leaving the 7th of April, but the 26th of March which is in less than two weeks.. I am […]

Photo Essay: Graphic Graffiti in a Dark Waterloo Tunnel

Goodmorning! Since my photography course ended in December, I haven’t really been doing any creative photography anymore, which is a shame if you ask me! I had a free day yesterday, and thought about something to see, do or photograph. I felt bold and decided to visit the Leake Street tunnel, which runs under the […]

Visit Hamleys and walk around Covent Garden

Hello there! As promised the sequel to yesterday’s post. It’s a good thing that I’ve done quite a lot last weekend, since next weekend I will be babysitting. James and Susanna will go skiing for four days, the grandmother and grandfather of Sam and Joe will stay over but I will have to help them […]

Food, fashion and luxury in Harrods

Good evening! The temperatures are beginning to rise, shops are beginning to display their spring collections and London is still ever so lovely. I have planned the date for my departure back to the Netherlands; from the 7th of April onwards I will not be living in London anymore! Very strange to think about it […]

The V&A Museum: Big, Impressive and Eclectic

Well hello again! Since I had an unexpected day off today (Tuesday), and most of my friends here had to work or had to be at university, I decided to pay the V&A Museum in South Kensington a visit. I never really mind going to museums (museums/musea? I reckon both are correct in English) alone, […]

Final Photos of Thailand

Good evening reader, Since Friday evening I am back in Wimbledon, London, England again! The flight back was very long, 13 hours, but we made it back. What a temperature difference! I feel very lucky though that all the snow has vanished, I don’t think I would have been able to cope with freezing temperatures […]

Phenominal Phi Phi Islands Tour

A very bright and sunny good day to you! It’s very hard to believe that in the Netherlands and in the UK it is snowing at the moment… over here it’s 18.30hr and still 30 degrees celsius. I did the most AMAZING thing yesterday!!!! The absolute highlight so far!! James, Susanna, the boys and me […]

สวัสดีประเทศไทย! (Translation: Hello Thailand!)

Good evening, because where I am it’s already 7.30 pm, 7 hours later than in the UK! We arrived yesterday evening around 8, 8.30 pm. The journey was extremely long, but probably very worth it! We flew from London Heathrow to Bangkok, which was about 11 hours, and then from Bangkok to Phuket, which was […]

I’ll Be Home For Christmas

Title explains itself! Tuesday I will be taking the Eurostar (train) to Brussels, where either my mum or dad will pick me up or I will take another train to my home! I will be back in London the 3rd of January, because guess what………. the 6th I will join James and Susanna and the […]
