UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Belgium

As I mentioned in my 30 before 30 post, I want to visit all UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Belgium. Now, several of my friends were interested in joining me, but most of them also don’t know what or where they are. I think pretty much everyone in Belgium has visited one or two of … Continue reading

Wallonia Day Trip (2)

After our stop in Namur, we drove on. Some time after, we found ourselves in Dinant, a picturesque city 30 km south of Namur. It’s a really beautiful city in the Meuse valley, and its name actually means “Sacred Valley” or “Luminous Gorge”. ✨ The pictures are a bit unclear because I had to take … Continue reading

Wallonia Day Trip (1)

My family has a tradition of going to the Belgian Ardennes every summer, and last summer was no different. My sisters, their spouses and kids, my brother, a cousin and her boyfriend, one sister’s befriended couple and my dad spent a week in the south. And me? Well, I’m not much of a family person, … Continue reading

Fort 8

Our last stop during Open Monument Day 2016 was Fort 8 in Hokoben, a fort built around 1860. By the time the first World War started, this building’s technology was already outdated, so they never actually got to use it. It’s a unique fortification, as it still shows the original bricks since it was never … Continue reading

Out-of-the-blue post time!

I used to post lots of updates on facebook, and usually people liked what I had to say, but last year in June, I decided not to post for a month. A facebook detox, you could call it. Ever since, I barely post anything, yet I have SO MUCH TO SAY. And I want to … Continue reading

Panoramic View of Brussels

Last summer, I read on the internet that there was a place in Brussels where you can have a panoramic view of Brussels for free, so I decided to check it out the next time I went to Brussels. We were lucky enough to have clear weather! There was one thing which immediately grabbed my … Continue reading

Cherry blossoms and more spring time!

Today’s post is going to be full of pictures! I really love spring because it gives so many photo opportunities. The world looks so much better after the dark days of winter. I love the dew left on plants in the morning. I love cherry blossoms, just like these I saw in Schaerbeek (Brussels, Belgium). … Continue reading

Signs of Spring (March 2014)

Spring is probably my favourite season, and so I take many pictures in this season every year. I love how the flowers start blossoming. I love how the trees turn green again. I love how the sun is already rising when I wake up. I love how the birds are happily tweeting when I wake … Continue reading

October 2013

Since I was still suffering a bit from glandular fever –I finally remember why I didn’t take any photos in July; I was in the hospital for a few days and then on the sofa for three more weeks– I could only do a short term job before going to Japan again. On the second of … Continue reading
