I spent the month of October visiting a few magical and amazing cities. While daydreaming about my stay in the most magical city of all, New York, I spent my weekends wandering around in Maastricht, a place that was made for me. Lots of small streets and charming bakeries. A few weeks later, I visited Antwerp in Belgium together with my darling mum and sister. I never realized how charming this city was. It’s safe to say I was amazed by the impressive architecture, the pretty hidden gems and the lovely old squares. I will definitely visit that city again. Hopefully some time soon.

I’m slowly realizing that September has been one of the best months this year. I enjoyed dinners with the loveliest girls, had a summer picnic in the parc and I got the chance to visit New York City, a city that I have wanted to visit for a very long time. When I came back home, my city greeted me with me some amazing weather. I am so happy the sun and the blue sky finally decided to make an appearance! I am wishing you all a happy week!
