Grab a bite in AmsterdamLike0

 Why is it that we try and squeeze everything we want to do in our lives in 48 hours, only to leave us exhausted by the end of a trip? This, is something I  can never figure out. I was in Amsterdam for 3 days, then again for 4 days. There was this moment where I looked at my watch and couldn’t believe how much little time I have left before discovering only 20% of the new places. Every year, new places open and every year they get better. I did however forgot to mention this FANTASTIC fish restaurant… apparently it is the oldest one in town. I seem to have left my camera and the name of the place back in Amsterdam. If anyone know where I am talking about then feel free to let me know! All I know is that it’s blue, we had dinner there and it was sublime!

Here are the few places I recommend to Grab a bite in Amsterdam. Summer plans are already in the making, so share your secrets with me!

Love,

Pompadour

You could see people looking from the window, drooling and just staring like it’s porn. It is actually. Just food porn. That sounds so vulgar, but I promise you, you will understand why this chocolatier won an award in 2014.

The Dylan Amsterdam Breakfast

I stayed there one night and woke up early specifically to enjoy the healthy breakfast I heard so much about at The Dylan. If you are there in summer, enjoy breakfast outdoors in the historic garden!

Did you know that King Lodewijk Napoleon Bonaparte (brother of Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte) favourite food in Holland was Dutch Pancakes. One of my favorite things to eat too! Pancakes is quite tight, like most fabulous places actually and be prepared to queue up. Serves no take away but has delicious pancakes with raw chocolate and GLUTEN FREE! Loved Pancakes!

Coffee Company

The first Coffee Company opened its doors in 1996. The CC Leidsestraat 60 was born out of love for coffee and Coffee Dicks Ricks love for the “big city ritual that he met in New York and London. The Coffee Company Amsterdam years conquered them with places like the Helst, Haarlemmerdijk, Doelenstraat and Beethoven Street. Coffee Company coffee enticed a new generation of fans with the versatility of coffee in a relaxed environment.

There are now 37 branches in Amsterdam, The Hague, Utrecht, Groningen, Leiden, Rotterdam and Delft and a distillery / tasting room in Amsterdam. Each with a unique place in the neighborhood. There are regular performances and on the wall place for local designers and artists.

  • For the longest time, I’ve been addicted to the sea. I’ve dedicated most of my passion for under water diving, kite surfing and being in flip flops. 
Asia was a huge part of my childhood and growing up to this day, I would only picture my future home in front of the ocean. But today, the ocean would maybe be the Arctic one. 
And now, I look back, only because it’s gratifying to do so. To see how far I have grown to love something totally the opposite but equally the same adventure of emotions. 
My goals? To be happy. To be really really happy. That’s all I ever want. 💫
  • The Arctic has become my comfort zone. A place where I can easily and happily go to re-align my thoughts. 
It helped me believe in giving people time...Time to process the good and the bad because there is something so beautiful about unforced bonds. 
I’m a forever kind of person. I don’t have room for temporary. I believe in big love, of growing old with your friends, soulmates and soul friends. 
I believe in being there for people through thick and thin. I believe in not giving up when things get tough. I believe in relationships that can make it through everything and anything. 
If the Arctic gave me that peace of mind, how can I ever leave? 💫

  • Do you ever have these conversations in your head where you actually pull a facial expression that would fit the conversation but then realize how weird it must look to someone who doesn’t know you are acting out a whole scenario in your head? 
That’s me. 
All.The.Time. 
Even more when I can’t put emotions into words and this landscape pops out of nowhere and blows me away!

  • There’s a synergy whenever you’re surrounding yourself with people who bring out your best self. 
Some best friends call each other “soul friends” because they always feel inspired and uplifted after spending time together.
You’ve got to find your ‘soul people’ the ones for which the answers to these questions; does our relationship feel easy? Am I better for knowing this person? Would they do anything to keep me in their life? Do they help me become closer to the person I ultimately want to be?— are always yes.
Thank you to those who have inspired me on our @travelwithtjd trips 💫 #TravelWithTJD #shotoniphone
  • I must admit, it’s not the first time I witness the northern lights, but it gets me every single time. I’ve been coming here for almost 4 and a half years and my feelings for @ourfinland has not changed, and every year I feel more love for this place. 
What’s exhilarating about the experience is the wait, in subzero temperatures with new guests on our @travelwithtjd series. The reaction on their faces, the magic moment where they are so grateful for making that leap of faith to join @dennisstever and I on this adventure and to create their own reality. Priceless!
Also, thank you @dennisstever for capturing this moment 😊 #TravelwithTJD #CreateYourReality

  • Leaving Northumberland and back to Dubai!
Join me tomorrow, I will be in @uterqueofficial at @thedubaimall with @louisenichol at 4pm to 6pm, talking about how I turned my passion into a reliable and profitable business on @travelwithTJD @TJDHospitality.

  • A little gem in Newcastle...
Have a beautiful weekend everyone ❤️
and thank you @visitbritaingcc @wegoarabia and @visitneengland for designing an incredible itinerary for me and for taking so good care of me during my bucket list trip.
  • Northumberland originally meant 'the land of the people living north of the River Humber'. The present county is the core of that former land, and has long been a frontier zone between England and Scotland. 
Caught moments before the tripod tumbled and turned thanks to that slight countryside breeze 😊 
I travel for that breeze :)

  • Any Vikings fans here?? I’ve ticked a bucket list place! Lindisfarne – also known as Holy Island – is one of the most important places of early English Christianity. Irish monks settled here in AD 635. 
To get here, there is only one road and that is covered twice a day by the North Sea at certain time of the day. About three miles of road disappears by the high tide and you can’t leave or get there until the tide changes back and the road re-appears.
Many visitors will attempt the ‘Pilgrims Way’ the ancient route across the sands marked by wooden posts. 
June AD 793 was destined to be one of their darkest days... it was here where the Vikings invaders from Scandinavia first landed in England on the shores of Lindisfarne, and launched a deadly attack on the church and the inhabitants.
