Antwerp botanical garden

Antwerp botanical garden

          I’ve been secretly coming to Antwerp since I was about 14. I took the bus to school and on Wednesdays we always had half the day off. The bus to the city left right across from my bus home. I always lied that a friend was with me, but in reality I was often taking the one hour bus ride on my own. My mom would kill me if she knew. In the beginning I’d …

Out in the heath

Out in the heath

Where K and I live, there’s  lots of almost untouched nature and  farming activity. Half of the cars on the road are used in agriculture and there are vegetable and fruit farms scattered through out the landscape.

The sales are coming up and we are starting with a pre-sale …

A Day In: Bruges (Belgium)

A Day In: Bruges (Belgium)

2 Belgian posts is one week. I feel kinda patriotic right now! Last weekend we visited Bruges, the same day as we went to Knokke. It was a nice sunny day, and so the streets were very crowded. Everywhere I looked there were tourists snappin’ pictures of the typical architecture. I have some photos to share too. Not my best photography, but still worth sharing, in my opinion.
