I have travelling genes from my dad. When he was still working for the Indonesian government, he travelled a lot. South Korea, Singapore, India, the Netherlands, you name it. One of the unforgettable experiences I have ever had when travelling with my parents, was the time when we were living in India for several months. Yes, I lived in India when I was 4,5 years old! Since that time I have always some kind of strange bond with that land.
Due to a few hectic days at work I was not able to post anything last week. But I am back! This time I interviewed one of my girlfriends. Her name is Anda, an Indonesian girl, lives in Brussels, a travel fanatic and a blogger. She travels a lot! I have asked her several times whether she would love to be featured on my blog to share her travel encounters. Finally, the moment is here. Having seen all of her photos on social media when she was in Switzerland made me wonder where the best places are and why. I asked Anda to tell me more about travelling in Switzerland and here is what she tells me.
You obviously know that Indonesia is in Southeast Asia and that Bali is one of the main attractions. Doh! You already know that since elementary school. Indonesia is so diverse. It has various landscapes, ethnic groups, languages and dialects, beliefs and habits. Are you thinking about your winter escape at the moment? Why not Indonesia? When Indonesia is the main topic, allow me to share some insider tips about places and habits that maybe, just maybe, many travellers have not discovered it.
Last Monday I explored Amsterdam again. I love to spend my day off alone, just wandering the city (any city, actually) hearing the hustle and bustle of how a city life can be on a Monday morning. Yes, my day off is Monday morning. So when everybody hate Monday, I tend to, well… love it. I went to Amsterdam Zuid yesterday and found some hidden gems that I want to share it with you.
Jamie Oliver is … well, who does not know Jamie? But just in case you have never heard his name before: Jamie Oliver is a famous British television chef. In the Netherlands you can find two of his restaurants: Fifteen in Amsterdam and since recently, Jamie’s Italian in Rotterdam. Because I am a huge fan of Italian food and I love to watch Jamie’s cooking programmes, it has been on my bucket list to go to Jamie’s Italian.
