Ethical is the New Black | Sustainable Fashion

While creeping on Instagram a little while back, I came across an Instagram post (which I somehow can’t find anymore) of my favorite Dutch online travel agency Vakantie Discounter, in which they asked people to answer the following question:

“If you had to choose between never travelling again or never shopping again, what would you pick?”

For me the answer is pretty obvious. I mean frack clothes then, right?! But that’s not really the point of me mentioning this. The point is that this question really made me think a lot more about the impact of the travel and fashion industry on the environment. Obviously I don’t want to stop travelling, so maybe I should think about living more sustainably when it comes to fashion?

We already do some things in our household to live a more sustainable lifestyle, like:

As the titel suggests, I have been to Berlin and…well I wasn’t very impressed. It sucks to say that, because after hearing so many people rave about the city, I really wanted to love Berlin! I’ve pretty much been putting off writing this Travel Journal for days weeks now, because I just really don’t want to come across as naggy or ungrateful! Because how cool is it that I am in the financial position to travel to Berlin (or at all)?!

But I want this blog to be a a place of honesty, so that means that I will sometimes have to put out content that isn’t exclusively about my positive experiences. Because the reality of travelling -and life in general, really- is that it won’t always meet your expectations. Along with the fun adventure times, you will probably have some bad or disappointing experiences too and that is OK! When something like that happens we just learn more about what travel destinations and/or activities are for us and which aren’t. Besides, we don’t all have to like the same things!

I don’t think it’s fair to blame it all on Berlin itself for not meeting my expectations. It was probably a combination of several things, like:

Somewhere at the end of last year I came across the Instagram account @NewInTheHague: a page that gives updates on new restaurants, shops and bars opening in Den Haag. Very handy for people who -like myself- love to go on little (food) adventures. Through them, I found out that a donut shop called Donuts & Co had recently opened. Just a slight glance at their Instagram page was enough to convince me that I just needed to get my hands on one of those donuts!

By now, I’ve actually already been twice. Once on my own (hey, don’t judge me!) and once with a friend, who surprisingly enough hadn’t heard of Donuts & Co yet. So I am here today to spread the love in case you haven’t either!

The Ritual Netflix Picks #3

Plot

The Ritual is about four friends who decide to hike the famous King’s Trail in Sweden: a hiking trail stretching almost 400 km through wild mountain landscapes, rivers and mountain plateaus. Reaching the end of their hike, the friends decide to take a shortcut through the woods, hoping to reach the lodge before nightfall. But – as quoted in the movie – “if the shortcut was a shortcut, it wouldn’t be called a shortcut, it would be called a route” and the friends soon find out why sometimes it’s best to stick to the path…
