Cuteness overload 😍
Our already amazing experience at the @elephantpridesanctuary got even better when they took us to see their baby elephant 💕 this cutie pie stole everybody’s hearts, including her own grandma’s who was jealous of the baby being with the mom only 😅 grandmas jealousy was so bad that mom and baby had to stay in a fenced area for their own protection 😱
I think cuddling with this cutie was definitely one of the most heart melting experiences I’ve ever had... what about you?!

Everybody’s looking for that something, one thing that makes it all complete. You find it in the strangest places, places you never knew it could be.
Thailand was certainly one of those places to me. There was so much beauty to find in everything that it made me feel complete.
What is a place you visited that made you feel like this? Tell me in the comments below!

Best. Experience. Ever. 🤩
When we first said we were going to Thailand, there was one thing that I HAD to do there; visit an elephant sanctuary and spend time with these beautiful creatures. And it was everything I hoped for!
I’ve always found elephants to be such impressive animals. They are very social, they stick together, they mourn their deaths, feel emotions and are highly intelligent. Unfortunately their strength and intelligence also means they are the perfect victim for tourist attractions like the circus and elephant rides. 😢
We spend a lot of time researching the sanctuary we were going to visit as a lot of “sanctuaries” in Thailand still abuse the elephants and let tourists ride on them. Eventually we booked our tour through @takemetour_thailand and went to the @elephantpridesanctuary after reading lots of good reviews. Luckily we did not have to regret this decision! We were given a tour by Chanchai who took such good care of us and knew all the elephants very well. I highly recommend both the sanctuary as the online tour operator! This is in no way sponsored by the way, I just really loved it! 😋
Anyways, to make a long story very short: it was INCREDIBLE! But for all tourists out there, please make sure to research where you go!!

“We must all face the choice between what is right, and what is easy” ✨
- Albus Dumbledore
So first of all, yes I am a huge Harry Potter fan and love Dumbledore’s wisdom. Actually re-reading all the books right now again and it paints such a broader picture than the movies. Don’t get me wrong though, I loved the movies as well and think they did an amazing job getting all those story lines in a 3 hour movie 🎥
On a second note, referring to the quote, I am wondering how you make your choices in life. Do you go with your gut feeling? Or do you do the right thing? Can those even be different from each other? I am so confused and torn up between 2 choices at the moment, hope you’ll be able to give me some solid advice!

Never let go of your dreams, one day they might just become the reality ✨
What is your biggest dream at the moment? Mine is to travel the world and explore as many places and cultures as possible! I think I have a minor case of wanderlust fever 😋

Sometimes life just doesn’t go according to plan, but we just have to deal with it.
The burden of getting my thesis done is getting heavier by the day but after procrastinating for years and life getting In the way I’ve finally set up a plan for myself again to finish the damn thing!
How do you deal with set backs in your life? Do you get stuck in the moment or do you get over it and move on quickly?
On a whole different subject, this is the last beach photo I have in stock for you for a while as I’m slowly getting through all my Thailand shots 😭 hoping to plan a beach getaway soon again so I can flood you with dreamy summer shots! Stay tuned 🤗

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, whatever you may be doing! As beautiful as this place may seem, unfortunately I won’t be spending my weekend here, as I’m not in beautiful Thailand but in the cold Netherlands... nevertheless we had such an amazing time at this hotel, honestly one of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed at.

What makes you truly happy? To me it’s the small things that count!
This must have been the freshest coconut I have ever had! They were chopping off coconuts from the tree at the beach to prevent them from falling down on people (did you know more people die from falling coconuts than shark attacks?) and were handing them out to everybody around. When I offered to pay for the coconut they even refused, how sweet is that?! It’s these kind acts of others and just the pleasure of drinking a fresh coconut that can make me the happiest person alive!

Please take me back to paradise! 🌴
While we were staying at the Conrad in Koh Samui, we took a small boat ride to a tiny private island. Except for a couple of other guests, our friends, some pigs and the cocktail bar there was nothing and nobody else on the island. We only spent a couple of hours there but it felt like the ultimate paradise and was so relaxing!
But it’s back to reality now, just finished work and the weekend is about to start. Even though the weather is getting slightly better, I’d give anything to be back in the tropics! Do you guys have any special plans this weekend?! 🤗

It’s amazing how little you can feel standing next to something so magnificent ✨

I am not perfect.
There are way more things about myself that I do not like than what I do. But I think we should stop focusing on the imperfections and start focusing on what you do love about yourself. Nobody is perfect, but by loving ourselves we can get damn close.
So to start with myself, I am going to think of 3 things each day that I like about myself, and repeat those every morning until the good things will overpower the bad.
Today those 3 things are:
- my eyes 💁♀️
- my newly found dedication to work out 🏋️♀️
- my motivation to finally start writing my thesis again and hopefully graduate this year 👩🎓
Now tell me 3 things that you love about yourself!
