Travelling: Destination Scheveningen

Bags: Roberta Freymann, Zara; sunnies Ralph Lauren; lipsticks: Cahnel Rouge Coco Baume and Mademoiselle 05; shoes Jimmy Choo; coral and ruby necklace from Russia,  nail polish: Dior 545, Chanel Blue Rebel, Estee Lauder White Beige; Guerlain powder Meteorites 03, Garnier Amber Solaire SPF 15, Lumene body shimmer
Excitement about summer comes not only with a good weather but also with an idea of looming around the corner vacations, long weekends, city get-aways and seaside picnics. Not taking the sun and warmth for granted and being a type of a person with a chronic urge for travelling and innate affection for seeing new places I always squeeze all possible from the three short months. Usually it means juggling multiple trips to all thinkable locations. Above said plus some quite impressive (not being too modest here) list of visited countries and cities made me to come up with a series of posts dedicated to my favourite places of escape and filled in with some handy tips "what to pack".


BEACH GET-AWAY
Scheveningen, the Netherlands. A favourite place of all Dutch and neighboured Germans and Belgians. 


Why I like it: Obviously because of the location. Half an hour drive from Amsterdam and Rotterdam and you're on the beach. Besides it's filled with friendly and cozy beach restaurants and chic and trendy clubs to party after a lazy day under the Dutch sun.
Why worth seeing: Not every day you get a chance to see the powerful North Sea. It impresses with a gloomy beauty, cold water, sandy beach and a guaranteed happy Dutch crowd hanging around there.
What to do: Play all possible beach sports, lazily enjoy the sun with a quality book, surf, stare at the handsome Dutch men. 
Where  to hang: Any of the super welcoming and relaxing beach restaurants. My favourite is El Nino for day and Wij for an amazing dancing night.
What to pack: Mild sun protection, glittering powder for night, bright nail polish for your toes, chic sunnies and either a pair of fancy flat sandals or pumps which are always good.
_____________________________________________________
Восторг по поводу лета приходит с хорошей погодой и маячащим за углом отпуском, поездками в близлежащие города, вылазками на пляжи и пикниками у озера. Будучи человеком с хронической необходимостью в путешествиях и врожденной любовью к новым местам, я всегда стараюсь выжать все возможное из трех коротких месяцев. Сказанное выше плюс нескромно внушительный список посещенных мною стран и городов дали идею о создании серии постов, посвященных путешествиям и советам "что брать в дорогу".


ВЫХОДНЫЕ У МОРЯ
Схевенинген, Голландия. Любимое направление голландцев и соседствующих с ними немцев и бельгийцев.


Что меня привлекает: Очевидное - месторасположение. Полчаса езды от Амстердама или Роттердама и вы на пляже. Плюс, множество уютных и манящих тенистой прохладой пляжных кафе, идеальные для ленивого дня под голландским солнцем.
Почему стоит посетить: Не часто можно похвастаться, что побывал на Северном Море. Оно впечатляет хмурой красотой, холодной водой, приятным пляжом и гарантированным присутствием довольных, улыбающихся голландцев.
Что делать: Играть во всевозможные пляжные игры, лениво развалиться с томиком хорошей литературы в руках, покорить волны Северного моря, катаясь на серфе, или просто поглазеть на красивых голландских мужчин.
Где быть: В любом из милых пляжных ресторанчиков. Мои личные фавориты - El Nino днем и Wij вечером.
Что паковать в поездку: солнцезащитный крем, блестящую пудру для вечера, яркий лак для ногтей и красивые сандали без каблука, или всегда приходящиеся к месту каблуки.
