FIRST VIDEO ON PP

February 22, 2011

I want to make some video’s of my trips. Starting with London in about 2 weeks. This is a short video I’ve made in Playa del Carmen, Mexico of Basico. This is their lovely rooftop terrace. What do you think? Good idea or not? And do you want to see me in front of the camera? Or only interior?

Check my report on Basico over here

OPEN IN MAY: ENGELS ROTTERDAM

February 12, 2011

I just received a press release of Engels in my inbox. Engels is an ordinary grand café next to Rotterdam Central Station. I knew it had a rooftop terrace – with great views of the city – but I didn’t know they ‘greened’ it up. I can’t wait till the opening in May when I definitely go there for a cold drink or cocktail. And ofcourse I will keep you posted with a report. For now: sending you some spring vibes already!

TRIED & TESTED: THE VINE MADEIRA

July 15, 2010

My friend, and PR representative for FUSE Marketing,  Trees Korstanje likes to see the world. She wrote a report about the Blue Marlin in Ibiza two weeks ago and now she tested the Vine Hotel in Madeira – for herself but also a little bit for Petite Passport:

Most striking feature:

Their stunning panaroma pool on the rooftop. You’ll see Funchal (the capital of Madeira) and the sea. I love the daybeds by the pool who turned out to be multifunctional. After I ordered a Pina Colada by the pool I missed a sidetable but it was hidden in the chair itself. The use of black tiles in the pool is better then the white concrete they use in normal pools. If you’re done with lying by the pool you can move to the lounge area (see below) for an aperitif. Go to UVA for dinner: it was like we were dining in between the stars. Because of the height you’ll only see the lights of the city beneath.”

Rooms from 221 euro a night. Check out: www.hotelthevine.com
