• 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

Endless bulb fields & vibrant-coloured tulips, a nature-photographer’s dream…                           

To get the ultimate Spring feelings once a year, I usually pay a visit to Lisse. From April to May, Lisse literally turns into flower paradise and is also known as Holland’s flower-growing region. Dozens of bulb fields are in full bloom, which makes it an incredible spectacle to watch. Also, since flower park Keukenhof is opened during Spring season as well, hundreds of thousands tourists visit the park every year. This time, my sis & I made our way to the fields on a sunny Friday evening…

Planning a trip to Lisse? Let me share some tips:

-Since the flowers are in bloom for only a short period (around April-May), be sure to check if you’re going during the right time to avoid awkward disappointments.

-If you’re visiting this region for the first time, I recommend going to Keukenhof. It’s very accessible by car/bus and the park is a great way to get introduced to all the beautiful flowers, get more background information and spend a full day with family/friends.

-If you’ve been to Keukenhof already or want to see the real deal, plan a trip to the bulb fields! If you don’t own a car, an easy way to visit the fields is by bike (I’m sure you can find lots of places where you can hire them).

-Before you go, double-check where you can find the fields on Google Maps/other sites, so you won’t be disappointed and lose time if you can’t find them when you solely navigate  to Lisse. Not all of them are easy to find!

-The fields belong to their respected owners, so be sure to treat them with care. That means: never pick any flowers without permission and be as careful as possible if you want to go close to the fields. Not all the fields are accessible and some of them have prohibitory signs in front of them, so make sure act in accordance with the rules.

-Pro-tip: golden hour in the fields is absolutely magical!
