Photography / Vondelpark

Some other photographs I took while I was in Amsterdam the last time. These are taken in The Vondelpark.

Photography / A walk in a park

Always take your camera with you when you take a walk in a park. You never know what you'll see. Just some random shots I took. Not your typically pretty nature photographs. I like them.

Travel / Here we come!

OMG I can't believe I'm going to the USA next week! Blogposts are scheduled as normally, so you won't even notice I'm gone. When I get back there will be lots of photographs, probably a haul and maybe a video. Any last minute tips? =)

Photography / City of Amsterdam

I went to Amsterdam with a friend not to go shopping but to take photographs. We had been planning this for so long, so I'm glad we finally went. It's really nice to just walk around in a city, looking for interesting things (which you can find practically anywhere) to photograph. And for some reason I liked everything better in black and white.

Travel tricks / Top 10 must haves on long flights

I love to travel and I'm a huge planner, so I thought it was only fair to share some of my tricks for all things travelling. This time: Top 10 must haves on long flights.

I'm always bringing an extra pair of socks. Usually big, fluffy socks that are really comfortable. So as soon as the plane is in the air, I take my shoes of and put on my extra pair of socks. 
Even though it can be very hot where you're leaving from, inside the airplane it gets really cold during the flight, so I always bring a cardigan and/or a scarf to keep me warm. A big scarf is also really great to use as kind of a blanket while you sleep. 
I take my music everywhere, so also during a long flight. I really like to take my big headphones that cancel out the noise more than the small ones.
I love books! In my opinion there isn't a better way to pass time, than by reading a book. Before you know it, you've arrived at your destination.
A lot of people get a really skin during the flight, that doesn't happen to me. I do get dry lips, so I always like to take a lipbalm with me.
For a little freshening up I like to take deodorant, some antibacterial gel and some other bits and bops.
I like to bring a little notebook and a pen for writing down ideas, playing games and doodling.
Last bot not least I take my iPhone with me. During the flight I almost only use it for playing games. My favourite game at the moment is Candy Crush! =)

Food & drinks / Home made cookies

I've wanted to bake some cookies for a while now, so last week I just got all the things I needed and baked myself some cookies. Off course I didn't eat them all by myself ;-) I took the easy way and just bought a cookie mix. To make it a tiny bit more special, I added a little bit of white chocolate to 1/3 of the dough, a little bit of milk chocolate to the other 1/3 of the dough and the last 1/3 of dough I just left it as it was. Turned out that the white chocolate turns brown in the oven. Am I the only one that didn't know that? But they tasted good anyway =)
