Welcome to the Blog

Welcome to the space where I share what I am up to. (scroll below this for the latest post)

On this blog I post my latest photos, music I am discovering, thoughts that cross my mind, work-related issues, travels and other randomness. It’s like a personal diary that I share with those interested in what I do – but also where I archive memories for myself. Things in here can be serious or not – mostly they are just random updates. Anyhow, I’m here – so if you want to get in touch or ask a question, feel free to send me an email via the contact form!

Enjoy! :)

7 months in Budapest

Parliament
I haven’t been hiding, I’ve just been very busy.

My time in Budapest on a very interesting mission is coming to an end, and I am leaving the city tomorrow – ready to take on a new challenge and new adventure, this time in Stockholm, Sweden. (After a couple of weeks of travelling.) I have photos and stories to share and will do so at some point soon – but first a quick shout out to those who sent emails asking what happened with the blog – I’m very much okay! And a big thank you to Budapest for embracing me with its enchanting architecture, great food and long walks. A true gem in the heart of Europe. Even being here, in such a great city, the job has still been responsible for most of the pleasure these last couple of months, it’s been wonderfully enriching and I can’t wait to tell you about it.

Beware of scammer using my name.

Did you get an offer to rent an apartment or get a request for money from me? Did you talk to a Caroline on some weird dating page on Facebook? No you didn’t.

No I’m not in the Philippines, no I’m not from California, no I don’t even work at UNICEF anymore. You have been subject to a scam and I’m thankful for having this website as a channel to warn you and protect myself.

Please let me know through the contact form of any profiles using my name, and please report them to the page they are using immediately. You can even link to this post. I would be much grateful if you helped me with this.

I guess this is to be expected at some point when you’re as active online as I am. People always said “why do you post so much online, aren’t you afraid?” and even if it sounds a bit strange – this is the exact reason why I have this website. I own my name and information online, and the page has very high rating on Google so it’s usually the first thing people find when googling me. Welcome.

Several people have contacted me and written that somebody is trying to rent them apartments in Australia or asking for money over Facebook messenger. They found me using Google and wrote to me through the contact form. Please do the same if you are here because of the same reason so I can keep track of what’s happening.

Being active online has always been part of my job and a way for me to stay informed and out there. I would be grateful if you could help me stop this person so I can continue being me.

Thanks a lot,
Caroline

Because enjoying life is also a must – Mexico’s Costa Maya, the in-betweens.

Playa

In between the circus hopping and the New Year’s celebrations, we enjoyed Costa Maya the way it’s supposed to be enjoyed. On the beach, eating great food at Casa Banana in Tulum and Almirante Pech in Playa del Carmen, having long breakfasts and days on the beach in Tulum’s La Zebra, dancing at Playa’s La Santanera and ordering guacamole with almost every meal we had. And, probably my favourite part – singing in the car.

Cirque du Soleil, Playa del Carmen – Joyà

Cirque du Soleil - Playa del Carmen - Joya

Went to see the acclaimed Cirque du Soleil show Joyà in Playa del Carmen on December 30th. A wonderful addition to a schedule already packed with impressions and highlights – and my first ever full Cirque du Soleil experience. It was amazing! The 250USD tickets (for two people) included a bottle of champagne and small bites of salty and sweet deliciousness (with edible spoons, yum!), and we were lucky to get some of the best seats in our price category, with a great view of the entire stage and all the little surprises happening around it. So very worth it. The stage isn’t huge like in other venues so it’s a very intimate setting and you’re literally part of the show at some points with things happening all around. The show itself was based on a simple adventure story, family friendly and entertaining – and blended a mix of languages, humour, dancing, acrobatics and of course great music into what became a rather magical night.

We had some time to have a drink and some starters in the restaurant Nektar just before the show, and were positively surprised by the low prices and really fast and great service considering the amount of people around and the absolutely stunning venue. All in all, a very positive experience, highly recommended if you’re in Playa!
