‘Two Big Headlights’

‘Two Big Headlights’

We left New York with a bang and we will never forget our adventure in any way possible. We were in the middle of a process where we had to figure out if we wanted or had to go back to the Netherlands. This country brought us so much joy, so much love, and so [...]

Who Is She

Who Is She

Just a lot of love for today

Story of a Soccer Wife

Every day she shows me her warm smile. She is the one who gives me an intense feeling of proud.
She waves and blow kisses to every person who she feels needs one.
She amazes me every day more.
She makes her own friends and family if its like nothing.
She has this beautiful smile that could light the darkest night.
Her pure generous spirit is a constant inspiration to me and others.
She is the one who turned three today and went from a baby to a little girl.

She is so unique in every way.
It doesn’t matter if we are in the Netherlands, Texas, or New York or where ever we will be in the future, when I hear her voice; I always feel that everything is going to be okay.
She’s the beat of my heart, and the air that I breathe.
She travels all…

Shake Shack

Shake Shack

Deze Amerikaanse hamburgers moet je hoe dan ook proeven en tevens de sfeer ervaren... Ofwel echt een aanrader om naar toe te gaan! Het is altijd druk, maar een unieke ervaring. Je staat soms in een lange rij inclusief met politieagenten en brandweerlieden. Maar geloof me dat het echt de moeite waard is en het [...]

Brooklyn Children’s Museum

My daughter loves this place! We already went to a few children museums, but this one was very spacious and even bigger than the children's museum in Manhattan. But Brooklyn Children's Museum is certainly a fantastic place for kids to explore, wonder, learn, and most importantly, have fun!!! You will have them engaged for hours. [...]

NYC Hotel on a Budget: The Jane

almostfreeNYC

The Jane, located at the West Village section of Greenwich Village, is a boutique hotel that offers rooms starting at an unheard of $79/night.  With the average NYC hotel charging $280/night, The Jane is an affordable and practical option.  Having said this, you’re probably envisioning a moldy, bed bug infested, stain covered room with its wallpaper half peeled, but rest assured that The Jane keeps things extremely neat and clean (and this is coming from a self diagnosed germaphobe).

The quirky atmosphere of the hotel is something straight out of Wes Anderson movie.  The lobby is lined in tall walls of mahogany and decorated with a unique, rustic decor, complete with 1920’s style furniture, chandelier lamps and taxidermy deer heads.  Further transporting you back into The Roaring Twenties, the staff is dressed in traditional vintage bellhop uniforms.

The Jane has a rich history that explains the atmosphere and decor of the hotel…

(In New York 7 dagen in de week) Kinderen verzamelen zich 15 minuten voor openingstijd en wachten tot 'Tinkerbell' (van Peter Pan) de zaak [...]
