Last weekend I was in Oman for two days and it was absolutely amazing. I fell in love with the nature and the beautiful landscapes. Therefore, I would like to give you a little impression of Oman.
On the first day we woke up very early to be picked up at 05:30 AM for the Wadi Shab tour. From Muscat it was a 1.5 hour ride, but only the ride itself was already worth it. We saw the sunrise and drove trough the mountains.
When we arrived at Wadi Shab we started hiking together with our tour guide. I would definitely recommend to book a tour with a tour guide since they know exactly where to go and what to do.
After the Wadi Shab Tour we had a quick stop at White Beach and we went to see the Sinkhole.
The next day we had a very kind taxi driver who took us to the Soukh and the palace.
As you can see Oman has a lot to offer and many more to discover. I loved the country and can’t wait to go back soon.
If you have any questions or things you would like to know, let me know in the comments!
Enjoy your week!

Yesterday I came back from a weekend Prague together with my sister and parents to celebrate their 25 years of marriage…
Back to my roots
As some of you might know I am half Czech, half Dutch, since my mother was born in Czech Republic. My mother has a very special family history.
Unfortunately, due to the Communism, my mother had to flee together with her parents when she was only 5 years old. Even though my mom is basically raised in the Netherlands, Czech Republic will always have a special place in her heart. That’s why she also raised me and my sister with some Czech influences. For example, we grew up with the Czech Christmas tradition, Czech food and we often heard her speak Czech with our grandmother.
When we were young we have visited Prague and the countryside of Czech Republic to see where my mom lived before she had to leave the country. That is such a long time ago that I could hardly remember it. So I was extra excited to visit Prague again after such a long time!
Last weekend my parents were married in Prague 25 years ago!! It was so special that we could be there 25 years later and see the place where they got married!
Pivo a Párek
Ehhh what?? I can proudly say that I have added these two words to my Czech vocabulary! It stands for Beer & Sausages. Just like we have our ‘Bier & Bitterballen’, in Czech they have Pivo a Párek. Whenever you are in Prague, you have to make sure to try this! The Párek is served with mustard and horseradish. Whenever you start eating this.. you won’t stop, believe me 😉
For the best Pivo a Párek in town you should visit V Kolkovně, and if you would like to eat some typical Czech food, this is also a perfect restaurant!
Some other Hotspots..
On the first night we have had a delicious dinner at Italian Restaurant Aldente Trattoria e Vineria Italiana. They serve delicious Italian Food and the service is excellent.
In the same street you can find another Italian Restaurant Casa de Carli where we had lunch one day. I had the Tuna Tartar & the Burrata, both tasted really good! Furthermore we were amazed by the hospitality and service of a Dutch Guy who lives in Czech now.
For a nice Lunch or Dinner with an amazing view on the ‘Karelsbrug’ you should definitely visit Hergetova Cihelna. The view is breathtaking and it gets even better with a nice glass of champagne.
For the best cocktails in town you’ll have to go to Tretter’s. They have plenty of choice… and there is the possibility to dance as well!
What a beautiful city..
Prague is a city full of hotspots, with delicious food & drinks. Besides, Prague is a city with so much History. It is absolutely worth visiting! Wherever you walk and look around, you will see the beautiful buildings of Prague.
If you have ever visited Prague please let me know in a comment below what your favorite places are in the city!
All I can say for now is that I love Prague and I am proud of my Czech Roots.
Lots of Love,

How are you doing? Today is the last day of 2017 already.. I can’t believe it went so fast.
My last days of 2017 were so lovely, it could not have been better. I have celebrated Christmas here in Lech, in Austria, and tonight I am also celebrating New Years Eve in Lech together with my family.
Here are some pictures to give you an idea of my lasts days of 2017…
As you can see we’ve had amazing weather. I have never had so many sunny days in one skiing week before.
Tonight we are going to celebrate NYE in our hotel. A whole program has been arranged for all the guests and at 23:15 we will walk up a hill with the whole hotel to see the fireworks of Lech, Oberlech and Zug.
2017 has not always been an easy year for me. It was a year of a lot of ups and downs. My lovely grandmother passed away and I had to take some difficult decisions. Normally, I don’t really look back on the past year. However, this year it is different. I have learned a lot this year, and most of all that it is so important to listen to yourself and to follow your heart. If something does not feel right, then do something about it. Do not ignore your feelings, cause they are there for a reason. Take time to make your soul happy. Trust the universe. Everything is temporary and whenever you are having a tough time, just believe that good things are on their way. Life is too short, don’t think too much, just do what makes you happy.
In the end I would like to say, that I am very happy with my lovely family and my friends who are always there for me, no matter what. I am very excited for a new year, full of new chances and possibilities. I cannot wait what 2018 will bring to me.
So, I close my eyes to old ends, and open my heart to new beginnings.
Enjoy your NYE, wherever you are.. and promise me to have an absofuckelutely amazing 2 0 1 8 !!!!!
Big X & lots of Love, Health and Happiness
