• 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

Bon bini, Willemstad!

The capital city of Curaçao, sometimes also referred to as “Amsterdam of the western hemisphere”, is defintely one of the most colourful cities I’ve ever visited. Approximately  140.000 people are living here. The main districts of Willemstad, Punda & Ottrobanda are connected by the queen Emma bridge. The architecture of the buildings is mainly influenced by the Portuguese, and of course, Holland. Therefore, It was very interesting to explore the city and spot some similarities!

Besides the main sights & architecture, I loved discovering the food scene. You can find several markets in Willemstad where they’re selling fresh fruit & veggies everyday. We drank a lot of smoothies made from all kinds of tropical fruits, and besides that, we tried some local dishes at Plasa Bieu (a well-known local market). My favourite meal were probably the sweet & crispy pumpkin pancakes… *gets hungry again*

The street art scene here is something worth mentioning as well. Sometimes hidden in small alleys, you will be able to find some gems of local artists. In my opinion, they definitely enhance the beauty of the city.

All in all, Willemstad is a feast for the eye of those who adore super colourful, bright & always surprising places as much as I do!

Lots of love,
