Landal Ouddorp Beach Resort

I have been fortunate again to visit one of the newest Landal Parks in the Netherlands: Landal Ouddorp Duin Resort. Such an amazing place to relax, enjoy nature and everthing else this beautiful resort has to offer. As it was freezing cold last week, it made some great moments for me and my family to remember. Relaxing in the swimming pool, running on the beach, exploring at the nearby lighthouse and the natural surroundings, we already miss this place!

Check out my Instagram feed to see some of these amazing moments!  #ontdeklandal 

It doesn't get much cooler than this..

Before Christmas, I was fortunate enough to visit two stunning places in Västerbotten, Sweden: Hemavan and Tärnaby! In only a few hours, I set my feet in a 30 cm pack of snow in -19 degrees celsius, to explore the beautiful wonders of winterwonderland in the purest of nature. As I am sorting out my 1200 pictures, more photos will follow here soon.

Capturing the essence of Swiss Nature in Fall.

In collaboration with the Swiss tourist board, I had a unique opportunity to share my viewpoint of Switzerland along with three other big Instagram influencers in a unique and creative campaign. Our Swiss photographs were exhibited at the stations of Utrecht and Antwerp. There, you had the unique opportunity to like and share all the photographs offline! And by doing so, you would also have the chance to win a trip to Switzerland for two. Check out the photos below and read all about my adventures in Switzerland soon on this website.

Discovering the largest Dutch Wadden Island: Texel

Again, I have had the opportunity to work with Landal Greenparks, this time on the Netherlands most popular island: The island of Texel. During our stay, I was lucky to see there was a rare natural phenomenon taking place, where a lake has colored pink due to the algae and high level of salt in the water. Of course I had to see it for myself, since it wasn't far from Landal GreenParks Sluftervallei where we were staying at the moment. Nature is incredible!
