Huishoudbeurs 2018: Pasar Colours Festival – Surinamese Day

Just like I mentioned in my previous post about the Huishoudbeurs, my third visit was all about the Pasar Colours Festival, because it was all about Surinamese entertainment that day. Unfortunately, I arrived later than planned, because I had to finnish the blogpost about the day before which took longer than I thought. But even though I missed half of the entertainment, I still had a great time at Pasar Colours Festival – Surinamese Day.

Huishoudbeurs 2018: Fashion & Beauty

My second visit to the Huishoudbeurs 2018 was yesterday on Wednesday, which was also the start of the Negen Maanden Beurs (Nine Months Fair), a fair that, as the name may suggest, that is all about baby stuff. Since this fair has nothing to do with my personal interests yet, it wasn’t the reason for me to go to Huishoudbeurs that day, but I did visit it for a second just to see what was going on there. My visit to the Huishoudbeurs that day was about checking out the Fashion & Beauty section. Continue reading “Huishoudbeurs 2018: Fashion & Beauty”

Huishoudbeurs 2018: Food & Drinks and Tahitian dancers

This year I am visiting the Huishoudbeurs several days and reporting about what I’ve done each visit. Because the fair is so big, my plan is to visit different sections each day and share with you what I’ve seen, done and bought each time I went . Yesterday was my first day at the Huishoudbeurs 2018, but unfortunately I arrived later than I thought, so I decided I to start with my favourite section of the fair: Food & Drinks.  Continue reading “Huishoudbeurs 2018: Food & Drinks and Tahitian dancers”

The fourth day of my Paris 2015 trip was a day well spend with my Parisian friend, who really made this a memorable day for me.

Today is that day! In this travel diary I am sharing my adventures of day 3 in the city of couture.

Solo to Paris

solo-paris-1

Last year I went to Paris on my own to really discover the city for myself with no opinion or judgement from others. This was not my first time though, since I visited Paris back in 2008 with my family and friends for a short weekend. Immediately I fell in love and I promised myself I would go back to explore and enjoy more of Paris. After seven years I finally did! But this time I stayed for four nights (by accident) instead of two and I was very excited. Continue reading “Solo to Paris”

It’s okay to enjoy your food without constantly over thinking it. Trust me. Continue reading “Sunday breakfast indulgence with homemade pancakes”
