Just across the border: Leer, Germany

Leer, Ostfriesland, Germany - Not so stuffy blog

Admitted: a daytrip to Leer was never appealing to us. I mean: it’s too small, has nothing special to offer, it’s just 10 kilometers across the border… A couple of years ago we were there by coincidence in December.

Because of all the laughing and jokes shoots like this are worth remembering: moments to be grateful for. So. A shoot. Again. Already. This time featuring a black ZILCH top, perfect for grey and rainy days like last weekend.

The best pizza ever in Groningen!

buurman en buurman intro

Back in the days Napoli and l’Italia were THE go to places in Groningen for pizza. To get ready for a night out in town, or just because you didn’t feel like cooking. Over the years I developed a more acquired taste. Free translation: I turned into a spoiled brat who only wants delicious pizza made in Italy. And yes, finding divine pizzas in The Netherlands, let alone in Groningen, is quite the challenge. So without expectations we went to Buurman & Buurman for pizza, after a visit to festival Noorderzon. [Read more…]
