Peak moments in the Picos de Europa

No great September without a good roadtrip and this year was no different! With corona still not entirely out of our lives, I once again opted to depart from home rather than fly somewhere and rent a car on location. This way we were always able to go home in a worst case scenario. Fortunately… Continue reading Peak moments in the Picos de Europa

A quick trip along the Cote d’Azur

September has come and gone again, but definitely not without me exploring a bit of the world, as per usual! No travel in September is a big no go in my book! Ha! It’s tradition by now! Those following my Facebook page have already had an insight in my whereabouts the past couple of weeks,… Continue reading A quick trip along the Cote d’Azur

Luxembourg; castles, rock formations and an intriguing capital

Luxumbourg. Belgium's tiniest neighbor and the country you pass through on your way to Germany or Austria. That's what I knew of this country until a couple of months ago. And what a shame that lack of knowledge was! Covid-19 once again made me look for travel options closer to home and made me discover… Continue reading Luxembourg; castles, rock formations and an intriguing capital

Falling in love with the charm of medieval Monschau, Germany

When we set course for the High Fens two weeks ago, the weather wasn't all that great. Big, dark clouds threatened to literally rain on our parade on the very first day of our trip. And hiking in nature isn't really that idyllic with that hanging over your head. So, it was time to go… Continue reading Falling in love with the charm of medieval Monschau, Germany

Discovering the German-speaking municipality of Belgium; Eupen-Malmédy

The summer is right around the corner and finally the corona restrictions are slowly being lifted. Vaccination is going smoothly here in Belgium and I've also been lucky enough to receive my first shot last week. Yay! Freedom has never seemed closer. But unfortunately traveling abroad still comes with a whole lot of rules and… Continue reading Discovering the German-speaking municipality of Belgium; Eupen-Malmédy

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
