Hi There! Hope You're Well!

It's incredible to believe we've been in London for almost 3 years now. Life really is what happens to you when you're busy making other plans, right?

After moving from a shared house in central London to our own one-bed apartment in the North, we felt it was again time to upgrade our life. So now we've settled in to a two-bed apartment -with massive balcony- in Leyton, in the North-East of the city... and we're loving it already!

No more annoying room mates (we're definitely too old for that now), no more mould on our walls (now we actually have windows that can open, wowza!) and no more blue ambiance light in our bedroom from all the police cars driving pass all night (gotta love rough English neighbourhoods)...  

Funny how such a relative small change of scenery can make all the difference to your well-being. And while we still have lots to unpack, our hot water and internet didn't work for a few days (talk about back to basic!) and none of our pans work in our new induction-hobbed kitchen, we already feel more relaxed, healthier and happier. 

keep on reading, because we're celebrating our move with you!


To celebrate our move (and life in general) we have a little big giveaway on the blog for you today! And trust us, it's one you don't want to miss.

If you've read our review of the 3-in-1 carry-on backpack by Standard Luggage last year, you might know that we're super-super excited about this piece of luggage. We use it all the time! So when we got an email from the guys at Standards Luggage, letting up know they've just launched version 2.0 on Kickstarter and asking if we'd like to again give away one of their bags in a contest, of course we said yes right away!

As we've been running our Reader Survey as well, we've decided that this bag is the perfect gift for those of you taking the time to answer a few questions that help us improve the website.

Some of you have already participated, so you'll automatically be in the running of winning the bag, but if you head over to the blog post, there is an extra chance for you to win, so scroll all the way down and fill in the form that you see there, it's really easy to do.

We wish you all the best in participating and will talk to your soon! 

Be healthy, be safe and make sure to appreciate your pots, pans, hot water and internet, because you surely don't realize how much they mean to you until they are gone, trust us :) 

Have a great weekend,
Nick and Nienke
