Anne Frank House| Amsterdam

Anne Frank’s story is pretty well known worldwide and I remember reading her diary when I was only 15 years old and being already very shocked with all the events. Now 13 years later, visiting The Anne Frank House in Amsterdam had a really big impact on me.

Of course, as we get older we see things differently and understand every little detail, but this was a very special experience that I believe everyone should go through.

The Anne Frank House was established on 3 May 1957 in cooperation with Otto Frank, Anne Frank’s father. They are an independent non-profit organisation that runs a museum in the house where Anne Frank went into hiding and their goal is to increase awareness of Anne’s life story all over the world.

We were not allowed to take photos inside and there was no point on doing it because you wouldn’t be able to feel it through the photos. You need to be there and I recommend you do it after reading her diary and the story in her own words. They have a guide during the visit and they will explain everything to you, but I believe it would be more impactful for you if you know the story already and then let the guide be your reminder during the house tour.

If you want to know more, such as prices, opening times, etc, visit The Anne Frank House on TripAdvisor.

Free the Sound| Sudio Review

There’s nothing that gets me more upset than being in the middle of a meditation section and getting interrupted by external noises. Or even when I’m on the train listening to my own music and the person next to me has really bad quality earphones, so I can hear their horrible taste in music.


But recently, I found a new pair of wireless earphones with 24+ hours of playtime and it only takes 10 minutes to charge!


It has an impeccable balance of instrumental tones and noise clarity. I was very surprised with the sound quality and definition, but most of all because every time I listen to music or do my meditation it’s like a whole new experience.

The brand is called Sudio and you can get 15% off by using my code at checkout –  TIGER15

Hippopotamus Restaurant|Paris

This year I decided to treat my sister with a weekend in Paris for her birthday and let her choose the entire itinerary.


Hippopotamus is one of her favourite restaurants in France and the main reason: chèvre chaud.


After spending the morning walking around Paris with 3 degrees, we decided it was time to have a delicious lunch so we headed to Boulevard des Capucines and visited Hippopotamus.


The food was excellent, the prices appropriate and the service was great until I decided to pay the bill in coins (I had to get read of that weight on my purse), and the server got extremely upset because she had to actually count them. Guess who didn’t get tipped.


But it was great to visit this restaurant again, since it was one of our most frequented places when we lived in Paris.

Visit Hippopotamus on Tripadvisor.
