Oh yeah! Burgers’ Zoo

Almost every year we come together for a family weekend. Only this year is more special, we’ll spend the whole week in a bungalow.

The first family trip was to London. It was in April 2010. We were only with 4 person.

Now that the family is expanding, and my parents in law are getting older; We tend to travel just around the Low Land.

I personally pick Gelderland this time. I went to Arnhem for the first time to watch my teenage Idol, Justin Timberlake 🙂

I was so strucked with the landscape! The greenery along the way. When I drive in this province, I feel like I come to another part of the world. It feels so serene, so beautiful.

And, because I have two small children; I picked Burgers’ Zoo as our first destination of the week.

I went two times to Blijdorp Zoo in Rotterdam. I liked it so much! It’s compact and well designed, plus…it’s so close to public transport too.

A perfect destination for a young family. Less hassle, more fun!

But then, when I came to Burgers’ Zoo just a few days ago; I must tell you that this Zoo is a MUST visit.

I love it from top to the bottom! From the beginning to the end.

It’s a wonderful place ❤️

Located among the nature makes it really special.

There are about 7 animal divisions in this Zoo. And I only missed Rimba and Ocean part but the rest, yuhuuu…❤️

I love the Safari part! There’s a restaurant overlooking to Giraffes, Zebras and so on. What a view…

There is also kids jungle with a huge in-outdoor playground surrounded by trees!! So gorgeous.

My oldest child is almost 4 years old and he certainly had enjoyed it. Surprisingly, my 17 months old child was also happy.

If you’re in the Netherlands and looking for something fun to do with your kids, I highly recommend this place.

It’s not only fun for the kids, but also you; their parents.

Happy Meivakantie!


Baby Jogger City Tour, is it your next stroller too?

I currently have two kids and having a good stroller is on top of my list.

After getting Bugaboo Bee for my first child, I struggled to find another one when the second one arrived 2.5 years after.

Bugaboo Bee is the best I have ever bought for my children, and I am certainly happy with it until now. You know, they say it’s like a Porsche for children ^.^ hahahaha.

Anyway, after I bought the extra wheeled board for my eldest child, I thought to have a double stroller but then my husband said NO!

Bugaboo, even the bee series, is too bulky. I need something compact and yet comfortable.

Besides the Bee, I also have Koelstra Simba in Color Jade. It’s an umbrella stroller, and I used it normally for travelling, since it’s light, affordable in price and the (almost) 180 degrees reclining system. And yet, I’m not satisfied.

Then I came to Tokyo and remember when I saw many young moms walking with a small, compact stroller. One day, I asked it to a stranger I met at the Station. What’s the brand of your stroller?

She said “Yoyo Zen”. Ok noted.

So I said to myself that this would be my next stroller. But then, when the second child arrived, I stumbled upon Baby Jogger City Tour (again) on Instagram! Thank you IG…you really is a great app 🙂

Then I made a comparasion in which come to the result that I chose Baby Jogger city tour over Yoyo Zen.

My reasons are:

1. It comes with a handy backpack for the stroller. Making it clean and tidy, easy to carry.

2. It has a footrest in which the Yoyo Zen missed.

I have used it now for almost 15 months and I am quite happy with it. The only minus point is that the folding system sometimes not as smooth as it promised, but it really is a minor problem.

Further, it is a easy to maneuver, it rides smooth, it really is a city stroller, stylish and it’s comfortable for my children.

And yes, this stroller is approved cabin bagage.

Thank you for reading this!

Bye for now,
