About us

We are Thomas and Cees. Met each other in 2000 and married in 2006. We do live in The Netherlands, near Amsterdam.

We are passioned about travel, food and lifestyle. Since we met each other we travelled the world. We have visited all continents except Antarctic. We love luxurious hotels, great restaurants (Michelin star) and hot spots. We are enjoying life as much as we can.

We are adventurous and curious, lovers of luxurious travel experiences, extremely good food (Michelin star) in trendy / cozy ambiances. We look not only to the food but to the complete picture. At home we love to cook and dine with friends.

Since 2017 we have a dog. The name of the dog is Tobias and he is an Australian Labradoodle. He lives together with us and our British shorthair cat Claire (named after Claire from House of Cards).

We also love a night bing watching Netflix.

We started this website to share our experiences. Every year we travel abroad. We try to travel and dine as much as possible. Exploring the world, seeing other cultures and fine dining is what we love.

This blog is about hotels, experiences, and food we prepared ourselves. Let us know what your thoughts are. In 2020 we had the intention going to Austria (winter sport), Spain (visiting Friends) but because of Covid-19 these plans were cancelled. We went to Austria in August 2020. No other plans yet. Hope we can travel somewhere end of the year.

At Explorer4Experience we provide detailled information of hotels, restaurants and things to do at destinations we visited. Besides this we share our own recipes as well. This is our Travel, Restaurant and Food Blog.
