• As some of guys probably have seen in my IG-stories, my graduation ceremony took place this week. 🎓 In September, I already knew I obtained my LL.M. degree, but after Tuesday it finally feels official. Thank you all for the heart-warming messages & support ❤️ It’s time for a new chapter in my life! And ofc, I’ll keep taking pictures, since it’s one of the things that make me most happy 😊• | Clingendael, Den Haag
• Even tho there are still 41 days left until Christmas, I really do admire the decorations in this pretty early stage! 🤗🎄 Is the city/village you’re living in already packed with lots of lights & christmas trees? :) • | Delft, The Netherlands
• Now that the colder days are coming up, I’ll be spending more time indoors. Still taking advantage of my sisters’ Netflex account up to now (🌝), so if there are any good movies/series I should defintely watch, feel free to share! • | Delft, The Netherlands
• Koi fish, bonsai trees & an oasis of serenity... my favourite gardens in the world are definitely the Japanese ones🌿☺️ • | Japenese garden Clingendael, Den Haag
• Back in the days, people often named their property when there didn’t happened to be streetnames yet, or simply because someone was proud of his/her building (and ofc, money-wise). I spotted quite a lot of them in the city centre of Delft & they were usually the most lovely buildings! If you were able to give your house a name... what would you call it? 🏠🤗 • | Delft, The Netherlands
• During one of those extraordinary autumn days when walking outside without a jacket was actually possible.. 🧐🤗 (Photo credits: @giugoh) // Even today, temperatures around 18 degrees were reached in Holland. Fall season has confused me many times this year.. Does this mean we’ll get a super cold winter? 😱 • | Clingendael, The Hague

One of the ways to get into the ultimate Christmas spirit is undoubtedly visiting a good old  Christmas market. I went to one in Leiden in the late afternoon after a serious shopping session. The market is held for 13 days in December. Besides all the Christmas stalls, plenty of food/drink options & live performances, it’s possible to book a canal tour and even test your ice-staking skills. It’s situated in the city centre at the Nieuwe Rijn, and the most jaw-dropping part: it’s floating!  Yes you heard it right, they actually managed to install both the ice rink and the Christmas market in the canal. Pretty awesome, right? It’s the first floating market in Holland, and no worries, you won’t feel any movements 😉

“Christmas waves a magic wand over this world

and behold, everything is

softer and more beautiful…”

When entering the market around 4 pm, I felt like I’d arrived just in time. The sun began to set and all the lights slowly became more vivid and sparkly. Standing on the Koornbrug overlooking the crowds and sea of lights was absolutely a magical experience. As you can probably imagine, my photography-loving heart started to beat a lot faster…
