July Wrap-up

July Wrap-up

July was a wonderful month. We’ve been to a Guns ‘n Roses concert and to a food truck festival. The concert was amazing and the food at the festival was delicious (I had sushi and Indonesian food). Also we have a new family member, Fancy the budgie! He is such a cute and happy little bird and he makes me smile every day.

Also July was the month of the heatwave.. I live in the south of the Netherlands and while I’m writing this post it’s 36 °C outside and it has been like this for over a week now. That’s just too hot to get things done and I’ve been taking things slow.

Let’s take a look at the books I’ve read and bought in July!

June Wrap-up

June was a great month and I did some really fun things. On June 8th I celebrated my birthday and a week later the Boyfriend & I went on a city trip to Prague. I’ve spend a lot of time outside this month, since the weather was amazing. Also I went shopping for a wedding dress and I’ve send out some job application letters.. Exciting!

Unfortunately I didn’t read as much as I had planned this month.. You can see what was on my June TBR here.

Juni was een geweldige maand en ik heb een aantal er leuke dingen gedaan. 8 Juni vierde ik mijn verjaardag en een week later ging ik met mijn vriend op vakantie in Praag. Ik ben deze maand veel buiten geweest, want het was ontzettend lekker weer. Ook ben ik gaan winkelen voor een trouwjurk en heb ik een aantal sollicitaties de deur uit gedaan.. Spannend!

Helaas heb ik deze maand niet zo veel gelezen als dat ik had gepland. Je kunt hier mijn TBR voor Juni vinden.

Let’s take a look at the books I’ve read and bought in June!

Travel – The Best Breakfast in Prague

Last week I’ve been on vacation in Prague. I loved our 5-day city trip and Prague is a wonderful historical city.

I was looking for a place to have breakfast and I saw a Google review stating “Some of the best breakfast I’ve ever had” served at Café Savoy, a restaurant located only 5 minutes from our hotel. We wanted to try it out and we ended up getting breakfast there every morning of our trip. This really was the best breakfast I’ve ever had!

Vorige week ben ik op vakantie geweest in Praag. Ik vond onze 5-daagse city trip geweldig en Praag is een prachtige historische stad.

Ik was aan het zoeken naar een zaak waar we konden ontbijten en ik kwam een Google review tegen waarin stond dat “Some of the best breakfast I’ve ever had” werd geserveerd by Café Savoy, een restaurant op 5 minuten afstand van ons hotel. We wilden dit wel eens uitproberen en we hebben uiteindelijk elke ochtend van onze vakantie ontbeten bij Café Savoy. Dit was echt het beste ontbijtje dat ik ooit heb gehad!

Curious to know more about breakfast at Café Savoy?

How to Create an Illustrated Map

In two days I’m are going on a trip to Prague with my boyfriend. I have never been there and I am so excited to explore this historic city.

I was flipping through my Lonely Planet pocket guide and I thought it would be fun to illustrate my own map of Prague.

Cartography, the art op map drawing, is a centuries-old science that has captivated explorers and wanderers throughout the ages. Although the world has been thoroughly mapped, artists continue to make maps of familiar places. Every map tells a story and in illustrating maps there is endless room for creativity.

Want to know how I illustrated my first map?
