Paris.. Fourteen years old I was when I visited this city for the first time on a school trip. My fellow students were bored while our French teacher guided us through the streets of Paris, telling us stories about every building, every statue, every little detail. I was hanging on his lips. When we entered Le Jardin du Luxembourg and passed the Fontaine Médicis I fell in love. The calmness and peacefulness I felt when I saw a girl sitting there on a chair reading her book made me want to live there instantly. I wanted to be her. Though I don’t officially live in Paris it does feel a little like my second home with visits on a monthly base. I still often go to Jardin du Luxembourg with my book but I’m usually eating my way around the city.

Rotterdam, my hometown. It might not be a love at first sight for a lot of people but once you get to know this city I’m sure you’ll like it! You might even fall in love with it, just like I did. And after 12 years of living here, my love still gets stronger every day. I will show you the best places around to help you see the beauty as well. Make sure to visit my favorites like Picknick, Lux, Aloha Bar, Restaurant de Jong, Kuiter, Bistrot du Bac, and so on and so on.
