BANQUET AT FISH AND CHIPS IN EINDHOVEN by Lonneke

Hi, I’m Lonneke and I live in Eindhoven with husband and 2 kids. I’m self-employed and I blog on Bubblemint.nl too. I love design, citytrips (Stockholm, NY, Berlin, London… but cities in Holland as well!) and I love to go out with the kids! In Eindhoven a lot has changed the last few years and that’s a very good thing! There is a lot of creativity and especially the trending area Strijp-S (old Philipsterrain) is a good example of that.

The nice new concepts keep coming at Strijp-S in Eindhoven. Every time you visit this place, there’s something new to discover. Continue reading

GO OUT WITH KIDS: THE PETER PAN CLUB IN AMSTERDAM by Myra

Myra is a lawyer and mom of twe sons Just (’10) and Quinten (’12) and she lives in Amsterdam. Regularly, she goes out with the boys on friday, her day off. Of course her boys are super sweet, but also real boys who make a lot of noice, knocking over things, making a mess and want to run around. So you can assume that whatever she’s doing, is in any case ‘kids proof’!

I’ve a little break in writing blogs, but sometimes I find something I really like to share with you! One of the people I admire a lot, is an old colleague of mine: Genna. She wasn’t afraid to give up the ‘ security ‘ of the job as a lawyer, to discorver what really makes her happy. This is mainly the reason for the start of the Peter Pan Club. Continue reading

WITH YOUR FEET IN THE SAND IN THE HEART OF AMSTERDAM by Evelien

Evelien is mommy of Piet (2010), Tycho (2012) and pregnant with her third child (a girl!) and lives with pleasure with husband and kids in Amsterdam. She loves to discover places where the kids can freely move and play and where it looks and feels good for the parent(s) as well, because that can be a challenge sometimes. Luckily there are increasingly more places where this combination is a match. In the coming blogs she will share her findings with you guys.

Strand Zuid (Beach South) has been on the edge of the Beatrixpark and the RAI for a couple of years. On the waterfront, so you can go there by boat too. Every year they change (read: improve) it! Since May 1st they’re open for the Summer season and recently I went there with Piet and Tycho, a bit insecure though if it would be okay with kids. To be sure I brought some spades and buckets, knowing there would at least be sand. Continue reading

GO OUT IN THE MAY HOLIDAYS: 5 TIPS IN ROTTERDAM

[Advertorial] The may holiday is an ideal time to go out with the kids. Get outside, breath in the fresh air and do some nice and active things. I prefer to do that with my boys or with some friends, who bring their kids as wel. We usually choose a place where all the kids can let off some steam and we catch up in peace. Continue reading

SYDNEY TIP: THE BOTANIC GARDEN BEHIND THE OPERA HOUSE by Linda

Let me introduce myself: my name is Linda, I am a Dutchy but have been living in Australia for the past decade with husband and 1 year old son. Together we enjoy city life, places of natural beauty, hanging out with our friends, discovering new eateries and designers. Together with my sister I have a webshop in the Netherlands: Kiwi & Koala. Through Kiwi & Koala we are hoping to introduce the original, beautiful brands of Australia and New Zealand, many of which are run by mums like us.

In each of the big cities in Australia you will find a botanic garden, a beautiful park in the middle of the city. Sydney’s botanic garden is magical: it is amazingly quiet despite its location in the middle of a city of 4 million people. Continue reading
