Travel planning dreams: Thailand

Hi lovely followers,

As you might know I love travelling. During the summer of 2012 I went to Singapore and Indonesia and I had the time of my life. In Indonesia I went to Manado, West Papua, Bali and Java and so I saw a lot of different things. It really was an amazing experience and if it depends on me I would love to see more of Asia! 

A couple of alumni from my education are now on backpacking trips and I have seen so many beautiful pictures from their trips. I can’t wait to plan an go on a new trip myself! 

One of the countries I would really like to visit is Thailand. This country has so much to offer if you ask me. Gorgeous sandy beaches, tropical islands, gorgeous nature, amazing Buddhist temples and building and of course a wonderful culture. 

I love planning trips, even before I even bought a ticket to go somewhere. Today I am giving you a little bit of insight in what I would like to do should I go to Thailand someday (which is hopefully soon haha).

During a holiday I want to be able to relax but I also want to see as much as possible. Besides that I really like interaction with local people. 
 
On my trip through Indonesia I actually stayed with locals most of the time. I know that in Thailand you have some home stay’s. While staying in these kind of accommodations you not only get to know the host or home owner but you also get a great sneak peek in the normal and daily life of a local. Very interesting and it might let you look at a country really different.

Besides interacting with locals I of course would also like to see the touristic attractions and not to forget, the hidden pearls only the locals know about. 
 
For example I would love to visit Bangkok and see all the different temples! And in Chiang Mai I would love to visit a elephant farm or sanctuary, check out the waterfall, see the temples and so on. Travel to me is more than just relaxing, for me it is also learning from different cultures and getting to know new people.

When checking out things to do in Thailand I found a website whose focus it is to let tourists meet locals, learn from them and hang out together. Check out some of the cool tours with locals in Thailand. The opportunities are pretty huge.

I already imagine myself chilling at the waterfall together with some fun locals.

I decided to dress up in a nice business attire but not to formal. Because I did wanted to show myself, who I am and also I wanted to feel comfy in my outfit. What I wore: Pantalon from Zara; Blouse & blazer from H&M; Heels from Dolcis; Noosa Amsterdam bracelet & Jewelry from Papua, Indonesia. 

Please let me know what you think of this look in a comment! 🙂

Hi there!

After two days of working I feel the need to go to the beach rising every minute! It’s so hot, I mean really hot not just warm, in Holland! With tomorrow maybe even a temperature of 36 degrees celsius! Therefore, and since I have never done a blogpost about bikini’s, I am blogging about beaches and bikini’s today!

In this blogpost I will show you some of my favorite bikini’s from different brands and stores and besides that some lovely beach pictures! I hope you’ll like this post, please let me know if you have any questions 🙂

Ciao and enjoy the sun as long as possible!!
Lovely Bunaken near Manado in North Sulawesi, Indonesia!

This bikini’s from H&M are lovely as well! I really like the bikini’s from H&M because you can order the top and the bottom apart from each other.
