Ukiyo-e931bd8145465078e2eb2b65b1388b624We’re so blessed living in a country,
where we can drink from the tap.
Although we are very aware…,
sometimes it gives us a better feeling
to do something which will really make a difference,
instead of just being aware.

Well I know someone who’ve made that first step.
My cool bellaah surfing friend Liesje (Liselotte Brand).
An amazing lady who is making the difference.
She decided to become a CWC, a Clean Water Courier & fundraiser.

A busy working mama, very creative and very aware…
of what she’s eating, the way she’s living her life
and how she can help the world.

Her cool family, skating longbearded hubby
and two amazing daughters (15 and 5 years old)
are the most important to her!
But she loves to travel, visit festivals
and spending time with her best friends too.

Well, the cool thing is that she will travel to Bali this summer
with her coolio’s and the grandparents.
And she found a way to feel good about that.
Something which will make a difference.

A wonderful organization, Waves for Water,
that aims to provide access to clean drinking water for every human
is ‘the family’ she has joined.

Clean Water Couriers (CWC’s),
like Lies, are everyday people, travellers like you
inspired by the Waves For Water Mission.
They do what they love and help along the way,
distributing filters to those in need around the globe.

If you would love to support a project like this,
concerning this intense world-water-problem,
Liesje’s fundraising ‘BALI NEEDS CLEAN WATER’,
is a very cool, ‘make a difference’ suggestion.
Plus you will make ‘the cool heads’ incredibly happy ; )
We have a big heart for Bali and their citizens.

Another great suggestion, for Lies and other travelling coolio’s,
when you’re visiting Bali…
There’s an amazing inspiring project called
We wrote a big article about this, almost two years ago.
Worth to take surf lessons
(big donation from that
goes to Soul Surf Project Bali straight away)…
and pay a visit to their (THE!) FIRST ECO SURFSHOP!

Proud of all the lovely people in the world!

KINGS all over the place!


The sun is shining, the weather is sweet….
Today we celebrate KINGSDAY in our country.
The best celebration ever… so, go meet & greet!

Especially for kids. You can sell your (not the) cool(est) stuff
or just buy really cool wannahaves.
Just for a few eurocents.
In Amsterdam there are many spots to go to
with your (little) dudes (& dudettes).

Well, there are three area’s you would really like to visit:
1. Hogeweg-Bredeweg-area (Watergraafsmeer). East-side.
It’s like you will enter a nice village. Music, food and lots of things to buy.
The coolest place for the whole family ; )
2. Artis. Just on the new square at the gorgeous ZOO,
there will be a market where the kids sell their stuff. (9:00-13:00)
3. The well-known Vondelpark.
Which is just for kids to get a spot to sell their cookies,
cupcakes, candy and toys.
Be there right now (morning). Otherwise it can be quite busy.

And there is Amstelveld, around Utrechtsestraat (center).
You can walk around there and have a great time too.
But try to avoid the inner-city with kids.
For a lovely day visit the places we recommend.
You won’t regret ; )

Have an amazing day!
