• It was a pleasure exploring the super colorful streets of Pietermaai.. ☺️🌈 // This district was once a deprived area, but it got a huge make-over several years ago and it’s nowadays the place to-be in Willemstad! The nicest hotspots can be found here and the buildings are bursting with the brightest colors, which instantly lifts your mood 💛 • | Pietermaai, Curaçao
• Playa Kenepa Grandi... 🌊 // After having visited many wonderful beaches on the island, I thought I wouldn’t be surpised anymore. But then on one afternoon, we visited this one! After we parked the car and walked towards the seaside, I was dazzled by a bright stroke of deep blue water which was becoming bigger & bigger. Once we arrived at the beach, I simply couldn’t believe my eyes. This is defintely one of the most incredible beaches I’ve ever seen.. 💙 • | Playa Kenepa Grandi, Curaçao
• Swimming under the stars.. 🌌 • | Jan Thiel, Curaçao
• Calm water, high mountains & a palette of chesnut brown colors.. 🌋🕊 • | Curaçao
• A slice of paradise... 🌴🌺 // Defintely missing the warm, tropical weather! During our stay, it was around 30 degrees everyday and (luckily) it rained mostly during the nights. But today, I might’ll be able to relive Summer again, since temperatures above 20 degrees will be reached in Holland. (Still unbelievable 😱) Have a good weekend y’all! • | Mambo beach, Curaçao
• Unexpected roads may lead to the most surprising places... ✨ // When travelling, I’m usually the one who plans everything beforehand. Knowing what to see, where to eat & what to do provides more certainty & less stress. But sometimes, it’s also important to let loose of a perfectly planned scheme and just see where you’ll end up spontaneously. That’s exactly what happened here. When we were driving towards our resort after a full day exploring several beaches, my dad decided to pick a random road instead of driving straight back. Within several minutes, we ended up with this incredible view.. It was defintely one of the most memorable moments of my week 💛 • | Curaçao

Exactly one month ago I arrived in London and I must say: time’s flying so fast! Sometimes I still need to pinch myself for the fact that I’m actually living and studying here. It feels like a dream. I’m kind of surprised that the city already feels so familiar to me, even though it hasn’t been such a long time that I’m here. One of main reasons why I fell in love with the city right away is that it’s so cosmopolitan. At my university, in the streets, shops, restaurants,  basically everywhere you look: people from all around the world are present. London feels like a miniature world to me: getting in touch with so many different people, cultures, languages and cuisines is what I love the most.

Living on my own is going quite well so far. When the semester at my university started, I slowly began to create a routine. My lectures are from Tuesday till Thursday, which means that I can enjoy a long weekend every week. I’m trying to keep a good balance between studying and exploring the city. London has got so much to offer, which makes the list of places that I want to visit endless.

I already met a lot of wonderful people here and last week my sister came to visit me for a long weekend. It was amazing to show her around and let her experience London through my eyes. We had a lot of fun and as you can probably guess, a lot of pictures were taken that weekend… 😉
