3 Reasons to visit the Museum of Modern Art (MUDAM) in Luxembourg

MUDAM Luxembourg

Visiting Luxembourg? Then a visit to the Museum of Modern Art (MUDAM) has to be on your 'to see list'. In the beginning I was a little reluctant because I'm not particular a fan of Modern Art. But once there my attitude was quickly overturned because the MUDAM is quite different from other modern art museums. The building The MUDAM (Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean) is designed by  Chinese-American architect Ieoh Ming Pei who also designed the Louvre in Paris. The high glass ceilings … [Read more...]

Weekend tip: Amsterdam Light Festival Canal Cruise

Watercolors Canal cruise

Hello everyone, I'm back from my Christmas break and first of all would like to wish you a Happy New Year! I had a very peaceful and quiet break filled with netflix, hibernating, stuffing my face with cookies, chocolate and food, and more netflix. Basically, I didn't do anything and it felt great. I'd like to kick off the new year with the one leisurely thing I did do during my break: an Amsterdam Light Festival Boat Tour.  Unfortunately it was raining cats and dogs that day so I was unable … [Read more...]

4 Reasons to visit the Natural History Museum of London

A city trip to London is usually packed with must-see landmarks and shopping. Consequently, a visit to a museum often is forgotten or striped of the list for the sake of time.

So let me explain the reasons for visiting … [Read more...]

Frans Hoogendoorn fashion exhibition

Last week I visited the fashion exhibition 'Frans Hoogendoorn' in the Gemeentemuseum The Hague. Although it's a small exhibition, I do think it's a must-see for anyone who appreciates fashion and couture in particular. You can easily combine your visit with the another interesting exhibition in the Gemeentemuseum like e.g. the Art Deco expo. Frans Hoogendoorn is a Dutch couturier and a household name in the Netherlands for over 40 years. Throughout his career he has consciously avoided the … [Read more...]

Art Deco exhibition in Gemeentemuseum The Hague

On Friday I visited the exhibition 'Art Deco' in the Gemeente museum in The Hague. It's a must see for anyone who loves fashion and/or interior design. The building of the Gemeente museum is in itself very fitting for this exhibition as it is also Art Deco architecture by H.P. Berlage. The exhibition lasts until March 4, 2018. The emergence of Art Deco, which begun in 1920 and lasted till 1939 influenced fashion, arts, architecture, interior design and industrial design. Couturier Paul Poiret … [Read more...]

Autumnal Weekend Escape to Limburg

Sometimes you don't have to travel far to have a rejuvenating weekend full of new discoveries. It had been over 20 years since my last visit to the most southern spot of the Netherlands; Vaals. Although it is only a three hour drive from my home, somehow I just never felt compelled to travel to one of the most beautiful provinces of my own country, Limburg. My loss, because it really is gorgeous! But after last week's autumnal weekend escape I have made a vow to do it more often. A weekend in … [Read more...]
