• What’s your favourite park in London? 🌳🕊 I prefer Hyde Park for picknicking, St. James’s Park to spot one of the most gorgeous blossoms during Spring and Regent’s Park for a relaxed day out (it’s quite big as well, almost got lost on the day I took this picture 🤔😂) • | Regent’s Park, London
• On the lookout.. 🐎 // Have a great weekend y’all! I’m planning to enjoy the good weather the upcoming days while it lasts ☺️ • | Trafalgar Square, London
• London calling. ☎️💥 // A new picture serie is coming up! I visited my all-time favourite city last week, and I can’t wait to show you all the beautiful spots I’ve captured around town 📸 During my stay, it kind of felt like I returned back to my second hometown. Places I’ve been to multiple times can become less-exciting after a while, but in one or another way this isn’t the case in this city. As the famous saying goes: “when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life”. Amen to that 🙌🏾😌 • | West End, London
• ..Still not sure if I’m dreaming, but temperatures around 24 degrees will be reached in Holland this week! ❤️ It finally feels like Spring here (it took quite a while 😂), which means: spending as much of my time outdoors. What’s the weather like in the place you’re currently staying at? :) • | Jordaan, The Netherlands
• What paradise looks like 🌸☺️ • | Zuid Holland, The Netherlands
• let’s KICK this monday! 💥 // Looking for a more quiet canal area in the city? Head over to the Jordaan district, situated very close to the Prinsengracht. I recently visited this neighbourhood for the first time and loved the authentic atmosphere. Also, lots of art studios & independent shops can be found here 🙌🏾😌 • | Jordaan, The Netherlands

Last week the preparations for one of the biggest festivities of the year started: Chinese New Year. To experience this event, we went to Chinatown, the best place to get a good impression of the celebrations in London. Not many of people know this about me, but my grandmother is Chinese so that makes me a quarter Chinese. This is one of the reasons why I was even more excited to visit Chinatown. I was totally amazed by the huge amount of red lanterns which were spread all across the streets. People were selling all kinds of fortune decorations and snacks, said their prayers and I even spotted someone in a big Pikachu costume (very Chinese, I know..). We had dinner in this area and it was definitely a good choice. After strolling along a lot of restaurants, we finally picked one and ordered fried rice and pancakes filled with roasted duck and veggies. Yum! To everyone who is celebrating this weekend: Happy Chinese New Year // Gong Xi Fat Choi!
