Rare shoes

Did you ever buy any clothes or shoes abroad, thinking you’ll never find anyone back home with the same handmade local fashion?

Well, half a year ago I went to Kuala Lumpur and I visited a place named Central Market. There I bought these beautiful Indian sandals of which I thought I wouldn’t find other Dutchies wearing them as well.

This weekend I was in Belek, Turkey where I met a Dutch girl, Petra Horsch, who asked me if I bought my ‘rare shoes’ in Kuala Lumpur…

… Whoops!

A wrong name on an airline-ticket is expensive

About 60.000 Dutchies fill in a wrong name on their airline-ticket. This costs about 200 euros per person per ticket to change.

Filling in a nickname, instead of the Christian name, while booking online is the most common mistake.

Check, double-check and check again!

Eating bugs in Mexico

Clean, nutritious and tasty!

Insects are a common ingredient for food in Hispanic Latin American countries.

Let’s have a look at the Oaxacan (state in southwestern Mexico) menu: guacamole with grasshoppers. Yummy!
I personally recommend everybody to taste the Oaxacan grasshoppers as they taste like real good chips. I really like the taste and I even brought some prepared grasshoppers to the Netherlands for my friends after visiting Mexico for the 2nd time.

Want to try? If you are visiting Oaxaca and you would like to order grasshoppers, ask for a dish with ‘chapulines’ which is the Mexican name for these jumping bugs.

So I’ll plan my next trip to Latin-America: the favorite continent of my dreams! Great cultures, lovely people, beautiful nature and art, and the most enjoyable lifestyles!
