Natural jungle vs urban jungle in the province of Liège

The Ardennes. I don't think I've ever been as much to that area of Belgium as the past year. It was one of the only options available in our current situation after all. Fortunately it still manages to capture my attention and distract from reality, which is one of the main reasons why I travel… Continue reading Natural jungle vs urban jungle in the province of Liège

Cycling along the L’Eau d’Heure Lakes and in the south of Hainaut

Soooo, the ban to cross the Belgian borders is still in effect - and constantly up for debate -, so that means it's time for another episode of my series called 'Tourist in your own country'. This time once more in combination with my series of 'Tourist à vélo' and in the province of Hainaut.… Continue reading Cycling along the L’Eau d’Heure Lakes and in the south of Hainaut

Hoge Kempen National Park; a long overdue visit to Connecterra and Mechelse Heide

March 2021. Almost an entire year since the first lockdown and corona is still a prominent part of our daily lives. With the entire Belgian vaccination campaign not running as smoothly as promised, it looks like we'll be in this situation for quite a bit longer... But I've managed to flip the switch. Instead of… Continue reading Hoge Kempen National Park; a long overdue visit to Connecterra and Mechelse Heide

On the hunt for winter scenery in Hainaut, Belgium

For the past seven years, ever since I started working, February has been my travel month. In February, I just have to go somewhere, anywhere! It's one of those things that gradually happened, but now after all those years, it has become a tradition. Until now. It's February 2021, and I'm being held hostage in… Continue reading On the hunt for winter scenery in Hainaut, Belgium

By bike through the Gorges du Tarn to Point Sublime

A beautiful, crisp September morning in the south of France. Yesterday’s storm had long passed, the sun was already making her presence known but the warmth of the day hadn’t arrived yet. And we, we were putting on our cycling outfit. Ready to discover the beautiful canyons that were surrounding us.

Stormchasing in La Cité des Pierres – Montpellier-le-Vieux

While we didn't have an exact itinerary for our roadtrip through France last September, there were of course a few places that we had in mind as a direction. The area around the Gorges du Tarn and the Gorges de la Jonte was one of those places. After a little - but not bad at… Continue reading Stormchasing in La Cité des Pierres – Montpellier-le-Vieux

Overnight stop in the Ardeche region to escape the heat

Completely satisfied, but also with a serious case of jello-legs, I got in the car to further our travels into France. Our time in the gorgeous Vercors Massif was over. Bummer! But no time -and reason- to sulk for long; new adventures awaited! The next region that we wanted to explore was the Cevennes. From… Continue reading Overnight stop in the Ardeche region to escape the heat

De-stressing in Pont-en-Royans and stressing on Col de la Machine

I've been traveling for many years now, and my favorite way of exploring a place has always been by foot. When I'm in a city, I love to wander through the labyrinth of streets, discovering little corners and unique streets with architecture that moves and inspires me. And when nature is calling me, I'm happiest… Continue reading De-stressing in Pont-en-Royans and stressing on Col de la Machine
