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.

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

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

De-stressing in Pont-en-Royans and stressing on Col de la Machine

I've been traveling for many years now, and my favorite way of exploring a place has always been by foot. When I'm in a city, I love to wander through the labyrinth of streets, discovering little corners and unique streets with architecture that moves and inspires me. And when nature is calling me, I'm happiest… Continue reading De-stressing in Pont-en-Royans and stressing on Col de la Machine
