Venice you have my <3

In the spirit of handing in all my final papers this semester, I went on a spontaneous trip to Italy, Venice and Rome to be more specific. Other than the mandatory gondola ride and a trip to the Murano island, most of the activities in Venice consisted of eating and drinking. Here are some of my takes on what to do/where to go while in The Floating City.

Breakfast: Rooftop of the Danielli Hotel

Lunch: The Gritti Palace and  Hotel Monaco & Grand Canal (both on the  canal terrace) 

Drinks: Harry's bar Cipriani (the birthplace of the Bellini)

Dinner:  Belmond Hotel Cipriani at the Cip's Club


We stayed at Hotel Danieli. Shortly summed up; it was in the perfect location (on the main island), beautiful interiors and the most amazing view from their rooftop terrace.

Sketch London

I forrige uke tok jeg en liten mini vacay til London. Vet egentlig ikke om jeg kan kalle det det, nr jeg har leilighet der og er der hele skoleret, men anyways, tok en tur for catche up med venner og f litt storby innsprytning (merker det er litt ddt tilbringe sommeren i Oslo nr man er vandt til Paris/Miami/London). 

Tenkte komme med en liten restaurant/bar anbefaling til dere, kanskje noen skal til London i nrmeste fremtid. De av dere som flger meg p Instagramhar sikkert sett jeg la ut bilde fra middag p Sketch. Vi hadde en kjempe koselig Girls-middag der fr vi skulle dra ut p fredag. For de av dere som skulle vre interessert s er det en restaurant, men med tre forskjellige barer. Googlet det nettopp for finne adressen til dere og der str den beskrevet som "Quirky, 18th-century townhouse tea room that transforms into a cocktail lounge every evening." Restauranten er veldig unik, i helt rosa decor og egner seg flott til bde lunsj/te og middag. Location er midt i Mayfair, rett rundt hjrnet fra flere clubber, noe som gjr den til det perfekte stedet hvis du vil ta noen drinker, fr du drar ut. Har flere ganger ogs dratt dit bare for ta drinks, noe som ogs alltid er en slager.

Holiday in Haiti

Hallo fra Haiti!

Nok en gang er jeg p besk i et av mine favoritt land, Haiti. Dette er faktisk den femte gangen jeg er her, og jeg elsker det bare mer og mer for hver gang. Til de som lurer, s er jeg p besk hos vennene mine fra Paris. Noen av mine beste venner fra studiene mine der er fra Haiti, og n som de har flyttet hjem prver jeg se og beske de s ofte som mulig. 

Jeg kom hit fra Miami fredag morgen og da dro vi rett til Beach huset. Helgen tilbrakte vi like mye til vanns som til lands. 



If I had to choose my favorite vacation ever, this years trip to Cannes would probably take the win.

If you follow me on Snapchat Leareiff* or on Instagram you might have picked up that I had an amazing holiday. Me and my two BFF's, Eline and Mari packed our bags and spent 9 amazing days by the French Riviera, half way through the trip, we where also joined by Elines cousin Thilde. The amount of laughs we shared must be equivalent to a stomach workout of 1000 situps a day, I feel as if I came home with a six-pack.

It's a bit hard to squeeze our days there into a post that would be organized and feature day by day. I had the intention of taking loads of pictures for the blog, but carried away with all of our fun, the camera got left behind(this always happens to me). But we did take a lot of photos with our phones to document this and that, so I will try to give you guys a recap and glimpse into our trip.

Most of our days where spent soaking up the sun at Boli beach on the Crossete. We tried some other beach clubs but this was by far my favorite. Their location on the beach is perfect, the food and snacks are good and it has great ambiance. We started most of the days with lunch there, then headed down to the beach.

Besides staying on the beach during the day in Cannes, we also visited Mala beach. A super nice and a bit secluded beach about 50 min drive from Cannes. There we met up with some of my friends from my time in Paris. We had a great lunch then headed to their boat for some swimming, tanning and waterskiing. I was so thrilled when I got to waterski again, it's been for ever since last time. From there we went to their house in Monaco and had dinner in Monte Carlo followed by going out.

Our days mostly consisted of going to lunch, the beach, dinner and then out. When it came to dinner we tried a few random places by our selves and went to some dinners with our friends. If you are looking for a great place to dine and drink before you head to the club, I would recommend L'ecrin and Boli. The both of them are right next to another, but L'ecrin is situated by the water and has a more lounge vibe, while Boli plays good music throughout you dinner and then turns into a club.

We went out almost every night. Accept from our night out in Monaco we either went to Gotha or Boli. Gotha is huge, but it was always a good time. We where there when Axwell and when Buster Rhimes played, which was a great deal of fun. Boli was our go to place and I have so many good memories there.

Postcard of the day

Not much more going on in Greece today. Spent the day by the pool and in the spa + a little game chess game played in the gardens of the hotel.

Yet another day in Greece

Today has been pretty much like all the other days here in Greece; very peaceful and relaxing. But I decided to have a bit of fun on the beach, so I dragged my bother out on a boat with me so I could water ski. I used to do it all the time a couple years back and I just love it. Jumping over the waves and the water splash in your face is such a lovely fun feeling.

Maxin Relaxing

I'm having such a lovely and relaxing time here in Greece. I work my days around what time I want to eat and tan, and that is just it. I feel like my inner Nemo is coming out, and I'm having a blast snorkeling in the water. Later today I think I might take up and old hobby of mine, water-skiing. Miss it so much, so I really want to do that while I'm here!
