It’s Part 2! Read it by clicking on this link.
Hey you guys! For this week’s the travel diaries I am sharing a bunch of very sun kissed photographs I took in the Caribbean, where I lived for about two years. Let’s daydream about the summer holidays!
In october 2011 me and F moved to the French-Dutch island Saint Martin, a little piece of paradise. When my parents came to spend their holidays we took a day-trip to another tropical island only a twenty-five minutes ferry ride away: Anguilla.
In the morning we left Saint Martin’s Anse Marcel bay to go to the ferry docks in Marigot, the island’s capital. Saint Martin is a very diverse island where you can find as many deserted beaches as traffic jams. Time to leave paradox-island for a day to come to peace in Anguilla.
Anguilla is a British Overseas Territory, that means that when we rented a car upon arrival we had to drive on the left side of the road, something to get used to!
We discovered this little secluded beach by accident, isn’t it just like in the movies? White sand, turquoise water, palm trees growing vertically over the beach, a soft ocean breeze and then there’s the smell of fried chicken and baby back ribs on the barbecue!
These hammocks were the cherry on top! Snoozing after lunch -and- waking up in this scenery..
Rendez-vous bay was actually the first beach we had come across on Anguilla. It seems like an endless coastline decorated with sand and blue.
Wouldn’t you want to live here?
And then there was Limestone bay. Perfect for some sunbathing and having fun in the waves.

I am taking you to the Ardèche today, a region in France very popular for family vacations. I used to work here and the past few days a went back to meet up with some friends. I admit I fell of the face of the earth for about a week.. No internet, no cell-phone.. It was quite lovely to be honest. Life in the Ardèche is like going back into time when we didn’t complicate our days with modern technology.
Spring time to me means staying outside for balcony wine-drinking, hiking, lunch and barbecuing! I must admit that these are photo’s of last year but I just loved this day so much that I have to share this with you!
Happy weekend to you all!
