Bali with Udder

Bali_udder

A couple of weeks ago my family and I went to Bali, one of the main islands of Indonesia. Going there was on my wish-list for a long time, so my expectations were pretty high ... perhaps never a good thing. We didn't go by ourselves nor did we plan the trip ourselves, instead we were invited by the company my husband works for to spend some time with all of his collegues and their families in one of those luxurious resorts. Yep lucky us!

But... and I don't want to complain ... there wasn't much time to travel on the island or dicsover some of those places that were recommended to me by my friends... instead we spend most of our time at the pool from the hotel. 

We did see some things like the famous market in Ubud and the Tanah-lot temple ... but I thought both of them were way too touristic, super crowed, warm and not interesting at all. So if we ever go back I will avoid all the famous and well-known places on Bali. Instead I will look for a hotel outside the mainstream cities and use all the information on Udder's blog. 

The only thing I bought was a cute black teapot and two little 'spa' bottles for oil and parfume. It was in a very tiny village were pottery and ceramics are the main source of income.

Kuala Lumpur City Guide for Thai airline magazine

Kualalumpur

Always nice to share one of the projects Marjon and I have done last time she was here visiting me... a Kuala Lumpur City Guide for Sawasdee, the Thai airlines inflight magazine.

It is actually nice making city guides, intens, hard work but fun! It all starts with preparations: where to go, what to share and often you need to have permission to shoot. Than you give yourself about two days to run around like crazy to capture as much and as beautiful as possible. And you can only hope circumstances like weather, opening hours or others are working for you. 

Kuala Lumpur is an interesting city. There are many hidden gems troughout the city. I believe much more could be done to clean up the city and restore the beautiful old buildings, but there certainly are many amazing spots. NY style restaurants, Milan kind of shops and of course the fantatstic Asian food stalls, restauarants and culture ... but guidance is needed! And I hope with this guide we have done just that. 

The images were made by Marjon Hoogervorst and the words were by me. We have so many more images from Kuala Lumpur left, if you are a publisher or editor and looking for a Kuala Lumpur Travel Guide than please send Marjon or me an email

Logeren en relaxen in deze heerlijke bed&breakfast in Ronda, een uurtje rijden vanaf Malaga. Je kunt kiezen voor de suite of suite deluxe . Beide kamers zijn zeer modern ingericht en beschikken over een comfortabele badkamer. En natuurlijk een zwembad om even af te koelen. Op de site vind je alle relevante informatie.

Of slapen in een tipi dicht bij de natuur, maar met de comfort van een poolhouse, keuken , badkamer en een zwembad! Marion Grasmeijer is de gastvrouw en samen met haar dochters zal ze je hartelijk ontvangen in het prachtige Andelusië.

Feeling Foxie...

Fox_rooms2_1

...in één van de fraaie kamers in Hotel Fox in Kopenhagen zal dat zeker het geval zijn. Artiesten en illustratoren van over de hele wereld kregen van Hotel Fox de kans één of meerdere kamers te ontwerpen. Het resultaat is een bonte verzameling  van unieke interieurs. De stijlen lopen uiteen van Japanse manga door Simone Legno tot de romantische wereld van Birgit Amadori . Voor reserveringen en overige informatie kun je het beste hun website  bezoeken.
