holidays

We are about to embark on our journey home to the Netherlands. As with most holidays, it feels far too short and have passed much too quickly. But with a very early wake-up and not much sleep either, I can’t wait to be home. Thank you family for making the holiday memorable and Malta for Continue Reading

The holiday is coming to an end (today is the last day), but before we leave we had a family gathering a la Arabic cuisine at Sharma in the Portomaso marina. The food, the wine and in this case the Arabic coffee was fantastic and so was the company. The evening came to an end Continue Reading

Anticipations were high when we embarked on a sailing trip yesterday. As usual we took the route of the northern coast up to Comino and Gozo, hung around the blue lagoon and its grottos before sailing off again (with a few pitch stops). Just before dinner time, we entered the harbour of Portomaso where dinner Continue Reading

As I turned off the lights a little over midnight I knew I would sleep tremendously well. Malta has that…whether magnetic field or just the sea lulling you to sleep, I sleep like a log without fail. 9 hours straight before a little man called for my attention. We had breakfast in bed, Sebastian watching Continue Reading

It’s the last day on this long weekend trip, so we’re going to make the most of it. Like yesterday, with dinner at fish restaurant Perard. As the sun was setting, painting the beach in red and purple, we decided to stay for a last hour of beach fun before strolling back. On that note, Continue Reading

It’s a fantastic mini holiday spending a few days at Le Touquet-Paris-Plage. The weather is soaring hovering around 30 degrees, the beaches are endless and so are the many small streets brimming with evening dwellers in search for local eateries. The many seafood restaurants is a feast for a part-time pescotarian like myself. In my Continue Reading

…perhaps the fact escaped you, but is the 72nd anniversary of the D-Day landing tomorrow. And here in Bayeux there are celebrations on the way. Wartime music is broadcasted on the speakers, people are singing “It’s a long way to Tipperary” at two in the morning, and Omaha beach is filled with wartime jeeps and Continue Reading
