• 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

…I recently returned from a one-week trip to Curaçao! I visited this Carribean gem for the very first time and I enjoyed my stay to the fullest. The journey was quite intense: a 10-hour flight from Amsterdam with a stop-over in Aruba… I also had to beat the 6-hour  time difference during the first few days, but once we started exploring the island, I totally forgot the lack of sleep 😉

During those 7 days, we tried to see as much as possible. Therefore, we were constantly balancing sightseeing and relaxing on the beach. Because one thing is for sure when you visit this island: you should discover the incredible beach scene Curaçao has got to offer! The island is well-known for its sandy beaches, magnificent underwater world & deep blue water. Trust me: it’s literally possible to take magazine-like pictures at every corner of the island…

Since my dad hired a car, we had the chance to visit several beaches here. In the beginning, I was like “but aren’t they all the same?”. This thought soon disappeared after our second day on the island. Every beach here has got its own special characteristics and therefore it’s worth exploring as many as possible. It kind of became addicting eventually! The following shots are taken at the Director’s Bay, Blue Bay & Playa Lagun.

My favorite beach was definitely Playa grandi kenepa (also called “Grote Knip”). The main reason: the color of the water is simply outstanding here. I’ve never seen it this blue in my life before. It’s one of the bigger beaches of the island and locals come here to barbecue during the weekend. Also, it’s a nice place for snorkeling as well. I spotted many tropical fish here close to the rocks. We spent our Sunday afternoon here!

Watching sunset at the beach is still one the things I love the most when traveling. During this magical moment in the evening, the sky usually shows its most beautiful colors. I experienced the nicest one when we were chilling at Mambo beach. With my feet in the sand, salt in my hair & twinkling in my eyes, I watched the sun slowly touching the horizon…
