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

The highlight of our roadtrip through Norway; hiking Romsdalseggen Ridge

Exactly one week after our challenging Trolltunga hike, we had another day planned where we didn’t have to drive anywhere. Time to strap on the hiking boots again and find some magnificent trails to follow. The most notorious hike in the area of Andalsnes is of course Romsdalseggen, a 10,3 kilometer one-way hike where you… Continue reading The highlight of our roadtrip through Norway; hiking Romsdalseggen Ridge

A day in the most famous Fjord in Norway, the Geiranger Fjord

One of the destinations almost every traveler adds to their roadtrip itinerary when travelling through Norway is the Geiranger Fjord. Since this place is a UNESCO World Heritage Site it probably would have been a disgrace to skip it on the grounds of there being too many other tourists swarming the place. It did help… Continue reading A day in the most famous Fjord in Norway, the Geiranger Fjord
