Kaagman & Kortekaas,

L’industrie, café restaurant in Paris

Café de L’industrie is located in Bastille. It is one of the better steakhouses in Paris and has fair prices and a lively ambiance, very Parisian. A simple and effective menu with classics, all for a reasonable price. It is nice to eat in a large space, which is still rare in Paris. This place feels like dining in a museum, the décor is made up of old pictures and paintings on the wall and old wood panelling in its original place.

 

 

 

Cape Standard, Guest House Cape Town

Cape Standard Guest House is stylish and chic, but with a laidback feel.

The Cape Standard is a comfortable four star boutique guesthouse close to the heart of Cape Town, located in Greenpoint.

Cape Town, one of my favorite beaches

Camps Bay is the premier tourist destination in Cape Town, South Africa, and is magnificently located on the Atlantic Ocean, at the foot of the Twelve Apostles moutain range and adjacent to Table Mountain. Camps Bay is a suburb of Cape Town, with a village feel, offering a convenient location only 15 minutes drive to the city center, 20 minutes from the V&A Waterfront, 30 minutes from the airport, 40 minutes from the Cape Winelands and 60 minutes from Cape Point. You can safely walk to the Camps Bay beachfront during the day.

Llandudno Beach is one of the Cape’s most beautiful beaches, surrounded by large granite boulders and overlooked by moutains. It is a popular surfing spot, but the swimming can be treacherous, with rough seas and extremely cold water. Llandudno has lifeguards on duty during the summer season, operated by the Surf Lifesaving club. It is also the access point for the walk to Sandy Bay, an isolated beach still popular with nudists.

Bakoven Beach is small and protected by locals, but its natural beauty and the combination of big boulders and white sands make it a superb haven for sundowners, and its little coves protect it from the wind. You are only 10 minutes away from the V&A Waterfront and the city centre here, and yet if you are staying on the beach side of Victoria Road with its attractive seaside bungalows, you could be mistaken for assumming that you are miles from the city.

Clifton Beach has a set of 4 beaches which are frequently used destinations for both locals and tourists. The beaches, which are named from 1st to 4th, are separated by falls of granite boulders and have almost pure white granitic sand. The four beaches of Clifton are one of the few areas well protected from the notorious south-easterly wind, which has a great deal to do with its popularity with bathers. Fourth beach is the most populated and glamorous venue, attracting families. Third beach is the smallest beach. Second beach is populated by students playing beach volleyball and beach bats. First beach, draws a mixed crowd of locals and surfers. Clifton Beach was noted as one of Discovery.com’s best beaches by region.

Huis Marseille

Huis Marseille was founded in 1999, making it Amsterdam’s first photo museum. With quarterly changing exhibitions, every season, a new look at the photography and versatility of this medium is being thrown. In the era of captivating image culture and ubiquitous cameras, Huis Marseille focuses on the image. Not only see, but really looking.

The original 17th-century layout of the house is still largely intact three hundred years later: with a front house, courtyard, backhouse and garden.

From September 9 until December 3 there will be an exhibition (Landscape with Tree) in Huis Marseille of Jamie Hawkesworth (1987), a British photographer who has risen to great height in the fashion world, with campaigns for, among others, Vogue, MiuMiu and Loewe.
