Hi there,

In the spirit of summer, I decided to change things up a little and share five of my favorite places in the world - and I would love to know yours!


Our honeymoon destination! My brand new husband and I rented a car with a rooftop tent and drove around the country. The colors, the landscapes, the animals… wow. Namibia is also known as Africa for beginners, in case you’ve been interested in exploring the continent but didn’t feel ready ;)


People don’t generally think of the USA as a place to go for nature, but especially Utah has the most out-of-this-world incredible national parks. Zion, Arches and especially Bryce are unlike anything I’ve ever seen on this planet.


This might not be the best place to go to now, but I wanted to mention it anyway because I visited my sister when she lived here in 2010, and then came back the next year for more.

What the women of this intense city taught me, is to celebrate the female body, no matter what it looked like. They paraded around in tiny bikinis and could shake their hips like there was no tomorrow.

I’ve always appreciated my body, but they inspired me to actively celebrate my curves. It’s also the only place in the world where I, a 100% morning person, effortlessly danced all night long, inspired by the sensual moves of the other dancers - male and female.


Whenever I get antsy, my husband calmly instructs me to go for a walk, because he knows I need to move my body every day in order to stay sane. And yet, there was something about this peaceful Greek island that allowed me to do absolutely nothing.

We had a beautiful cottage near the sea, and would do little more than enjoy the view, read a book and stroll to a restaurant - the same every day because why make life more difficult than it needs to be. Who knew dolce far niente was possible for me too!


Whereas my Dutch friends would go to Spain and France during the summer holiday, my family and I would often drive up north.

We all love the rawness of the rock formations and the unimaginable depth of the fjords. And, surprisingly, Norwegian summers are not as cold and rainy as might you think: my glow-in-the-dark skin has never been as tanned as after our 6-week camping trip near the Hardangervidda (you’ll just have to believe me here, these trips were pre-digital photos 😉).


Have you been to any of these places? Or do you have any other favorites?

I’d love to know!
