♫ Vök – Muziekgieterij and Gebr. De Nobel

Vök is an Icelandic electronic/pop band with Margrét Rán as a vocalist and Andri Már on sax and keys. After being enchanted by their music for a year, I finally got the chance to see them live. Even twice! First in Muziekgieterij, Maastricht and the day after in Gebr. De Nobel in Leiden. Although Muziekgieterij…

Holy guacamoly

My favourite snack during movie nights and só easy to make! While you put a baking dish in the oven (about ten minutes at 200 degrees) with corn chips and lots of grated cheese, you mix the following ingredients with a mixer: one avocado,  the juice of half a lemon,  one tomatoe (peeled and pitted),  one…

Shooting Stars

Driving up to Sierra Nevada at 2500 mts for the Perseid meteor shower is rewarding and beyond. It threw me back to childhood when I used to lie down in the grass and watch the stars with my dad. Never stopped counting, simply cannot stop looking at them. They still have the same magical effect…

Summer Sadness

Most beautiful shell I ever found. Cuesta Maneli,…

Sunday Sweetness

Slowstarting this lovely Sunday with a very nice smoothie I made with the slowjuicer, consisting of peach and pomelo (grapefruit) and later added some greek yoghurt and blended it. Drink with your eyes closed.. That smooth texture!!

Sunsetsucker

Je hebt van die dagen dat het goed is dat iemand je aan je haren je huis uitsleurt.. Vooral als je dan naar iemands huis met zwembad in de bergen gaat waar de temperatuur een heel stuk aangenamer is en je ook nog eens beloond wordt met een prachtige zonsondergang. Charging the batteries 🙂 Sunset…
