West Coast USA #ThroughMyEyes

Budapest the hidden treasure

Image
What a heck of a trip this was, probably everything that could've gone wrong, did. Nonetheless I must say this was one of the best trips I've had so far. It all started when I came back from America, me and my two besties met up and decided to go on a holiday. We wanted to go sight-seeing in a city in a warm country where you also had a good party scene. Fortunately enough we had heard a lot of good things about Budapest, so the decision was easily made. We booked the trip there and then. We where flying via Brussel since that was a lot cheaper, or so we thought... We arrived at Brussel airport only to discover we where at the wrong one! We had to take a cab, which wasn't cheap, to go to Brussel Chareloi the most crappiest airport ever where only to companies flew from. I think you could guess we where quite mad. We almost missed our flight to, the only reason we didn't was because it was delayed 15 minutes. When we were finally in our apartment, we went straight t

My Fav Vegan places in NYC N.02

By CHLOE Overall 4,4 Food 5 Venue 4 Location 4,3 This must be my favorite off all, it was my go to and therefore I tried almost the whole menu. Spoiler alert; I liked it all! The guac veggie burger is amazing seriously I could it every day. It's nice and creamy especially with fries (sweet potato, or normal) and a beet ketchup or spicy mayo you're all set. The hot dog is very good, fresh and spicy at the same time. The pesto pasta is precisely the right amount of pesto, but if cilantro isn't your fav let this one slide. The mac and cheese , Oh my god it's the best I've ever had, even better than the 'real' one in my opinion. They but some smoked mushroom on it, how they do it is a mystery but it tasted EXACTLY like bacon. The purple smoothie is creamy, sweet, fruity and nicely filling. The quinoa salad must be my favorite of all. It is loaded with all the good stuff, you get quinoa which on it's own is already good. Even more you g

Since most of you know, if you've read my previous blog, that I'm mostly vegan. Therefore I was almost obliged to check out New York's best vegan food places. I'll elaborate on some more the others, due too the amount of food I had there or what my experience was. Disclaimer; all pictures and opinions are my own. Butchers daughter Overall 4,2 Venue 4 Food 4,7 Location 3 For my drink I had the mango slatsi smoothie which was very silky, smooth and definitely pleasing. As a starter I shared the quac dip with bread with Renee. You got a overload of avocado what we very much enjoyed, it had enough flavour without to much added salt and pepper, always good! It is something I would surely choose as a snack any time.  For dinner we  shared the burger and raw zucchini spaghetti. I count myself as a veggie burger know-it-all since I've head a lot of them in my life. As most of them tend to be quite dry this one was too. But I liked that it was a bit

Me and my shadow

"Even a white rose has a black shadow. You might lose it in the dark, you might become it, but is something that will stay with you forever." Being a normal kid has never come easy for me, I' ve always had struggles with numbers and letters. At the age of six my mom discovered that I had dyslexia and dyscalculia. Dyslexia and dyscalculia are brain disorders which can effect your language and math skills on a daily basis in a lot of different ways. With me it meant that reading was a lot harder, learning how to spell a word and grammar was difficult. Also numbers were a disaster I always read them wrong. For example; if it said on the paper 62 I read 26. Simple things like the names and order of the months, left or right and the times tables I could not remember. Infrequent orders or quickly changing patters always caught me off guard. If I was making arithmetic sums and it was divide by three times in a row and the fourth sum would be times 2, first off all

Saying Goodbye #NYCLife19

It felt weird saying goodbye to a city like New York. My last weeks I spent doing things for the last time. My last Subway ride, my last Times Square moment and my last look upon the magnificent skyscrapers. I lived here, well on EF Campus for six months, I build up a entire new routine and now I had to start over again. A new place a new life, I was excited and totally ready for new adventures. But I owe you a recap of my last weeks, I'll do it fast because than the pain is less. I spend my weekends with my friends, one after the other they were all leaving. We went to the shopping mall and just hung out there. Or we went to the city but only with a plan. I needed to by some last things because it was snowing in NY and I was going to a tropical Island. Walking around like that brought me more emotion than I could've imagined, it felt weird leaving it all behind. But when I look back those times in New York or all the fun times on Campus, man those were good. I became a new

On Wednesday Amanda and I went into the city to take some cool shots and just have a lovely day. Once again we ate lunch a By CHLOE's in Greenwich, don't judge it's my fav. We had previously decided that we wanted to go to the Flatiron building and than eat dinner a a vegan sushi place and that basically planed out the road we needed to follow. Firstly we saw Washington square park, it's concrete arch stood beautifully in the sunshine and it was nicely warm outside. Amanda stumbled upon a hidden treasure after that, it were houses of students of NYU which caused us a minor breakdown. The road was made out of cobble stones, extremely rare in NY, and all the houses looked like they were right out of an old city in France. Not that weird considering we later found out it was called La Maison Francaise. Following our route we passed Union square market were we got a vegan cookie what we would safe as dessert. The flatiron building is in comparison to the rest of NYC bui
