Normally I do everything by car, but due to my busy schedules, Thalys is really the solution!
As you might know, I live in Rotterdam and from the Central Station I can take the Thalys to Antwerp, Brussels or Paris.
Last weekend I had to be in Antwerp for work. Unfortunately, I had a fairly busy week that week so I did not want to use the car. I have decided to go to Antwerp with the Thalys, from Rotterdam CS it is only 30 minutes in the train to Antwerp Central Station. With the car I would be on the road for an hour and probably would not arrive as rested as I do with the Thalys. I was also able to easily work that 30-minute journey time.
As you now know, I had a pretty busy week behind me. So I chose to travel with Thalys in Premium class.
Please see the benefits of Premium below:

Rotterdam knows a lot of restaurants but there is one restaurant in particular that many people do not know about.
You will find this amazing restaurant at the ‘Wijnhaven 85’
ENJOY HANGAR 85 BAR & KITCHEN
Positioned in the stunning ‘Wijnhaven’ you will find the hotspot of Rotterdam, Hangar 85 Bar & Kitchen. Located next to the authentic Four Lion Bridge and the rippling water, the modern facade immediately stands out. The style of the interior is cool and yet warm and the open design makes you feel at ease immediately. The kitchen prepares classic dishes with a trendy twist. Hangar 85 is the place to be for a nice lunch, a relaxed and cozy drink or a nice dinner. You can also come to them with large groups. Do you have something to celebrate, business or private? They like to think along with you.
You are most welcome.
This stylish restaurant with its open and accessible interior is suitable for any company at any time of the day. Whether you have a business lunch, want a romantic dinner, or in the evening with a last drink at the bar, Hangar 85 is always the right place.
The quality of the products are on number 1 at Hangar 85. You immediately notice this with the sophisticated dishes and carefully composed wine arrangements. You do not eat a standard starter and dessert, but different small dishes to taste more.
So, this is truly amazing with your love, friends or family! Isn’t it?
The young and enthusiastic team cooks classic dishes with a modern interpretation. Choose some dishes from the menu yourself or be surprised by a four-five or six-course menu from the chef.
I love surprises so, I chose for the six course menu from the chef and of course they ask what you like or not like. There is only one thing I can say about, it was absolutely delicious!
As you may know I am a wine lover! Red wine or white wine it depends on the food.
This time I chose for white wine and it tasted so good!
This restaurant has style and at the same time a warm company! The young team is enthusiastic and feels very strongly about hospitality. As soon as you step into the restaurant, you will feel right at home. So quickly taste the dishes, or just come and drink a good glass of wine on the terrace.
So guys, don’t hesitate and book your table as soon as possible to try it yourself!
And forget the try out the delicious crème brûlée!
Why do we choose for the city center?

From 12 people they prepare a menu.
Cornelis Bar & Kitchen is a wine-bar and grill-room, where you can have lovely dinners and fantastic parties!
As you have read previously, I celebrated my Birthday there!
I made a reservation for approx. 30 people and they had a nice spot reserved for me at the bar. The service was extremely good! As the wine bottles were empty, there was already a new bottle! The friends who didn’t drink wine they could order their drinks at the bar! Very easy going and as I told me before, the service was good. They often asked me if everything was alright.
OH YEAH, IT WAS!
Every month they organise a party. So last Friday I was there with my lovely friend @urbanfitgirls! Talking, dancing, had some wine and cocktails! It was a fantastic night!
If you would like to have a lovely dinner please have a look at the Menu: FOOD MENU
Today I decided to work from the Barista Café in Rotterdam. You’ll find this spot at the Wilhelminasquare. It’s just a 5 minutes’ walk for me to get here.
This is a perfect place for having breakfast in the morning, lunch or just to drink a coffee. The opening hours are just perfect as this place is already open from 07:00 AM. I mean, I will not be there at 07:00 AM of course, as I am not really a morning person but sometimes I have to wake up early to avoid traffic jam on the highway. Then I will take a coffee to go and get in my car. A one-way drive to my office is about 100 km, so imagine, I need to have my coffee in my FIAT500.
But today it’s not the case, I am working from home so I have the time to have a lovely breakfast, coffee and fresh orange juice.
