Tackling two mountain passes and Lourdes in the French Pyrenees

Our trip through the North of Spain sadly ended after we finished our hike through the Ordesa valley, but it wasn't the complete end of our roadtrip. We still had to drive back home and for that, we had to cross the Pyrenees. Oh beautiful mountains, I can't just drive past you, can I?

Through the valley in the Ordesa y Monte Perdido National Park

When you've checked off all the sights in the area you had planned to visit and you have another couple of days left on your holiday, what do you do?

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. Deep in the Tarn… Continue reading By bike through the Gorges du Tarn to Point Sublime
