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

Enter a magic forest with bluebells at Hallerbos

Every year when Spring is in town, the beautiful bluebells make their appearance at the Hallerbos in Halle, Belgium. And just like that, an entire forest is turned into a magic purple blue kingdom. As far and wide as you can see, the flower is brightening the already lush green forest. It's a feast to… Continue reading Enter a magic forest with bluebells at Hallerbos

Why you should definitely take out a day to visit Ghent
