Avenue des Champs-Élysées

Paris, you were intense. I guess that's the only word I'm able to describe you with. And no, not only the life threatening way I had to take these photos on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées in front of the Arc de Triomphe. I feel like this trip could be best described by psychedelic experience (= Ancient Greek words ψυχή - psychē, and dēloun - δηλοῦν, translating to mind-revealing). Strolling through the tiny streets in Paris while constantly getting these vivid flashback to certain memories I had during my lifetime; it was like the past and the present were simultaniously existing, and melted together into a new reality. Like living a life, within a life, or a dream, within a dream. I literally didn't know how to feel. Should I be happy or sad, reminiscing or forgetting, missing or letting go?

Petit Déjeuner in Paris (+ the Prettiest Apartment View Ever)

The smell of fresh croissants in the morning is one of those things anybody can appreciate. Who doesn't like to start the day with a nice petit déjeuner? Especially if you are able to eat them while sitting in a window pain, listening to the sound of Parisiennes, while enjoying the view of La Tour Eiffel. If you follow me on my Instagram and Snapchat, you will already have seen the beautiful apartment I've been staying in these last couple of days. Now it's time to show you where I've actually been staying all this time!

Moccachino & New Sunnies in Paris.

Waking up with a view of La Tour Eiffel, musée du Louvre and Pont de Arcs. Reading French philosophers in a crisp, white hotel bed. Having a delicious petit déjeuner with some fresh croissants, strawberries and orange juice, while applying your favorite face mask for some well-needed me-time. I guess there is not a lot more one can wish for. If you haven't read my previous blogpost, yes I am in Paris currently. Yesterday was my first full day in this beautiful city and it was lovely.

Bonjour Paris!

After 3 hours of sleep, a 2,5 hour delay on a flight that only lasted 50 minutes and the stress of deadlines and exams, I can finally say I arrived in Paris. Au revoir Pays-Bas, bonjour Paris! You can't imagine how happy I am to be back here. And don't get me started on the appartment I'm staying at... The Louvre is literally our backyard and we can see the Eiffel Tower from our window, how magical! It gets better though. I actually had one of the loveliest dinners as well at a vegetarian Italian restaurant. Everything was so yummy and tasty, I literally ate until my stomach exploded, haha!

HOTSPOT | Feel Good Groningen

Today I'm going to talk about on of my favorite and most visited hotspots in Groningen. It's called Feel Good, a cute café that serves healthy food and juices. It's located right in the city centre and you can often find me there grabbing a bite with some friends or getting a smoothie to go. I love eating out the door, but I don't want to fill my body with bad food. That's why I love eating at Feel Good Groningen so much: all their recipes are delicious and healthy!
