Traveling... If you believe everything you see on Facebook, it's all about glitter and glamour and if you take Instagram's word for it, we're all supermodels carying around a curling iron and a pair of heels in our backpack to always be ready for the perfect selfie.

HOTEL REVIEW: BAAN THAI HOUSE, AYUTTHAYA, THAILAND

We arrived in Ayutthaya in the early afternoon, after a long flight from Brussels and a 1,5 hours' minibus trip from Bangkok.

ESCAPE TO PARADISE: 3 DAYS ON KOH CHANG, THAILAND

After 2 weeks of non-stop visiting in Thailand, we were ready for some serious relaxing and some "us-time". We headed to Koh Chang, where we’d booked a ‘pool villa’ for 3 days and 4 nights.
