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 By the time the first World War started, this building’s technology was already outdated, so they never actually got to use it.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

August and September 2013

I’m going to try something new! Using Flickr to insert photos in my posts. It’s odd that I didn’t think of that earlier but it’s never too late I guess. I hope this works. 😉 Also, since I’m still writing about things that happened 1,5 years ago, I’ll try to speed up to finally catch … Continue reading
