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

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

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

To the top of the Grand Veymont in the Vercors Massif

When the friend you're traveling with has a thing with hiking to the top of mountains on holiday, you have no other choice but to follow and make sure his tradition remains intact. Thank god I love hiking. And mountain tops. And a challenge. As you can see, following was a very big sacrifice on… Continue reading To the top of the Grand Veymont in the Vercors Massif

Exploring the gorgeous trails at Cirque du Fer-à-Cheval

After an amazing two days in the Jura region, it was time to continue our roadtrip to another region of France. Yay! A colleague of my friend told us about a place in the Haute-Savoie called the Cirque du Fer-à-Cheval, an amphitheater-like valley close to the Swiss border. We only needed to see one picture… Continue reading Exploring the gorgeous trails at Cirque du Fer-à-Cheval
