i’m not gonna lie – i do sometimes worry about how a baby is going to affect my wanderlust and travel-obsessed life. i’m sure i won’t mind staying a little closer to home the first few weeks, but then what? as if the universe somehow felt my panic, it responded by reassuring me – travel is always going to be a part of who i am and what i do. in december of last year i had a couple of meetings that ensured my enduring professional interest in countries and cities far far away. my collaboration with belgian travel company CONNECTIONS was renewed and is taking on increasingly exciting dimensions which i’m absolutely thrilled about. and secondly, as i already alluded to ON INSTAGRAM, i started a new and very cool collaboration with american travel platform CNTRAVELER.COM. from now on i’ll be one of their regular travel contributors – you can check out the articles i already wrote for them right HERE.

and when professional activities aren’t enough to satisfy my hunger for foreign inspiration, i’ll always have REMOTE, the wonderful book written by my colleague bloggers, writers, photographers and journalists debbie pappyn and david de vleesschauwer of CLASSE TOURISTE. they published their first travel-inspired tome with the same publishing company of my own firstborn book, LANNOO. and ladies and gentlemen, it’s a beauty. heavily inspired by the class and style of my favorite magazine monocle, it is both an object and a book. i love it just as much when it’s lying on the couch or kitchen table, as when i’m flipping through it, admiring the high-quality photos and reading the duo’s personal stories about visiting the most remote places in the world.

Welcome To Miami

December 22, 2014 • MiamiTravel

i promised you guys i would start digging into the tons of travel content i haven’t shared with you on here yet. so even though we are currently in new york (check MY INSTAGRAM FEED to see where we’re hanging out), i’d like to look back on the trip we took to miami around thanksgiving last year.

we were there to scout and photograph places for the CONNECTIONS urban explorer guide, and though we had not expected to, we completely fell in love with miami. it really is the perfect mix of sun, shopping, relaxing and good food. we discovered several nice restaurants, hotels and shops, all of which i’d love to introduce to you over the next few weeks.

for now these are a few snapshots of things we liked and loved in miami // old-fashioned indie cinema MIAMI BEACH CINEMATHEQUE // wynwood hair salon JUNIOR & HATTER // the miami location of old favorite SHAKE SHACK // the MIAMI DESIGN DISTRICT and its fancy shops // delicious coffee at PANTHER COFFEE // the coolest garage i ever did see on collins avenue, hiding ATRIUM // and more pastels than we thought we could stomach, but THE WEBSTER made it all worthwhile.
