Travel blog: The Cuba effect I didn’t expect

July 25, 2018 | Retro life, Travel | 0 comments

It was around the 1st of January when my retro bestie and I decided that we needed to travel more. Now you should know that I am anti-New Year’s Resolutions, but I am definitely pro-travel! Things evolved quickly from there and the excitement really started when we hit the ‘book now’ button. Destination: Cuba. Cuba appealed to us for many reasons. Most and foremost the retro look & feel. Especially when you’re already a huge retro fan living the retro life!

A story to remember: The tattooist of Auschwitz

The tattooist of Auschwitz - De tatoeëerder van Auschwitz

It’s a random Monday evening when I decide to read a book that I’ve saved for this time of the year. 2 hours and 130 pages later, I put the book away. Reluctantly. This is the kind of book that I would like to read in one night, but there’s another workday coming up. The next Sunday I have no appointments and I finish the book in another 3 hours. When I am finished I have mixed feelings. On one hand it’s one of the most beautiful stories I have read in a long time and on the other hand, I’ve just had a detailed glimpse of some of the most black pages in history.

How to go retro style when you’re always cold in Winter

retro style winter coat

When winter time hits, I always get mixed feelings. I love Christmas time and the lovely decorations that cheer up the night in December and all the “top xxx hits of all time” programs. However, I dislike the absence of light that starts around 4PM in winter. But…what I dislike most is the cold, especially in combination with rain and wind.
