We had breakfast in bed, Sebastian watching Continue Reading

I have wanted to visit the Duchess at the W hotel in Amsterdam for some time now, but opportunity was never there. So when I met up with V the other day, it was the perfect occasion to try it out. The Duchess certainly didn’t disappoint. With the exception of some stringent time slots, and Continue Reading

With the heatwave sweeping the low counties (and Europe for that matter), my mind can’t help drifting towards the upcoming summer holidays in July. Anything else than Malta would be scandalous, so this time we are once more heading for this Mediterranean pearl. A pic taken from a sailing trip last year, brings back fond Continue Reading
