‘American Girl’

When my husband is off from soccer training and games we like to drive to Chicago and just walk around and explore the city. These last months were hard because of the intense cold and snow! Wisconsin and Illinois are not known for their warm winter months. But when we are there when it is…

Summer Summer Summer!

So little time and so much to do! Let the summer begin and let the stories come…    

Mad City

When it comes to cold weather, Wisconsin doesn’t mess around. It’s just cruel and unforgiving… But I still give my friends the benefit of the doubt and I will still believe the “summer” is coming. So right now, we are living in the largest city of de State of Wisconsin… Milwaukee. I thought it was…

The best is yet to come

Many adventures, many stories and it’s time to catch up. In the last couple of months I have been to Florida, New York, Wisconsin and many other places I still need to write about. So stay tuned

Chicago ‘My Kind of Town’

The weather is calmed down a bit and… Oh well…who am I kidding… Not really!! It’s still freezing over here! But the curiosity to discover more “North of the wall” (click here) is still there. My good friend offered me to show me the third largest city in the United States…Chicago, Illinois! The City where…

‘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…

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…

Winter Village at Bryant Park

It’s shopping, eating, and ice skating all in one place! Ice skating in the beautiful locale of Bryant Park, while the Chrysler and the Empire state Building look down on you. We passed it so many times and this time I really wanted to go on the ice. My husband decided not to go with…

Dylan’s Candy Bar

Dit is een ‘Candy wonderland’ voor jong en oud met drie verdiepingen in hartje Manhattan, genaamd ‘Dylan’s Candy Bar’ (dubbelklik). Deze plaats is prachtig om te zien. Het interieur bestaat grotendeels uit snoep. Ze hebben een overvloed aan verschillende soorten zoetigheid zoals: Jellybeans, snoepjes, chocolade, ijsjes, koekjes, cupcakes en souvenirs, maar ook hartigheden en ga…

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….

Who Is She

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…

Jane’s Carousel

If you have kids, this is definitely something you need to bring them to see and do. If you don’t have kids… remember that you are never too old! This is a lovely attraction near the Brooklyn Bridge and it overlooks Manhattan. Tickets are only $2, and the horses are beautifully painted and there are…

‘Macy’s Santa Land’

Mijn droom komt nu dan eindelijk uit. Na alle kerstfilms van vroeger zoals: Home Alone, Scrooged, Elf, The family Man en Noel, mag en ga ik dan ook eindelijk kerst vieren in New York. Mijn dochter vindt het geweldig om met me mee te gaan op avontuur en ik leid haar dan ook graag naar…

If you’re looking for a particular model of a shoe which is in any way even slightly famous, they’ll have it.

The Disney Store

Ik kreeg deze zomer te horen dat ze bij alle Disney stores in Amerika een openingsceremonie doen in de ochtend voordat ze de winkel openen. Dit is speciaal voor de kinderen. (In New York 7 dagen in de week) Kinderen verzamelen zich 15 minuten voor openingstijd en wachten tot ‘Tinkerbell’ (van Peter Pan) de zaak…

Greenacre Park, Manhattan

Ik vond een Amerikaans stukje op internet over een “verborgen waterval” midden in Manhattan. “Een oase van rust… Je weet niet wat je ziet”!! Was 1 van de reviews. Gelijk even uitgezocht en er uiteraard naar toe gegaan. Het zit op de 217 East 51st Street!! Je moet wel goed opletten anders loop je er…
