A Day In Antwerp

A Day In Antwerp

My latest photograhy “things”: overexposure and out of focus subjects I wrapped up the schoolyear yesterday and those who follow me on twitter know I have landed a temporary full time job for the next two weeks. Starting today. Gosh, did that hurt in the morning, haha! I love the job though and I got to meet all the new co-workers that joined our team since my last day in May. The sales are coming up and we are starting with a pre-sale this friday,&…

A weekend in Germany

A weekend in Germany

Treis-Karden, walking along the river banks. The hills in the back are covered in vine yards!   An old fortress in Cochem Cochem Windbeutel: warm cherries, pudding, whipcream and vanilla ice cream. Yum! Koblenz, at the point where the Rein and the Moessel meet. Somewhere in March K, my parents and I took a few days off and went to Germany. Eventhough Germany is really close (hello neighbours!) I had never been there before, apart from two times we visited the Christmas markets in Dü…

A day in Lille, France

A day in Lille, France

On Thursday we drove down to Lille for some shopping! Well, actually my sister shopped, my mom paid and I was just beeing annoying and snapping a million photos of them. I had a pretty exhausting two days in the city. So much shops to do in so little time! I’ve found a perfect replacement for my trusty old levis and I may or may not have bought another striped tee. On arrive sur le sixième étage! This would make a lovely backdrop …

Versailles

Versailles

A little outside of paris there’s a beautiful domain named Versailles. The castle seems like it’s made of gold and the gardens are immense! Versailles was my favorite part of our trip (and probably K’s too). We had amazing weather, all the flowers were blossoming and the ponds were full of people in little boats. To add to all the magic there was music by Mozart. This year we also had time to visit the Marie Antoinette mansion. We took a nap …

An evening stroll in Paris

An evening stroll in Paris

Our first day in Paris, we payed a quick visit to Château de Vincennes and Parc Floral. It was really sunny outside. A sudden 30°C outburst in September, after a two week monsoon? Cah-raazay! If K wouldn’t have stopped me, I would have jumped into the lily pond to cool off. After we visited Parc Floral, we decided to stop by St-Michel to grab a pancake. St-Michel is the lively area next to the Notre Dame. Out of ideas on what to do …

Home sweet home

Those of you who follow me on twitter already know this, but I did not make it to New York. I’m sure you can guess of the reason: Irene. If I wasn’t in the Big Apple, then where have I been? Dans la cité d’amour: Paris! We’ve spent 7 days up there so get ready for a huge load of photos and stories. I’ll post the photos on my blog as soon as I can. Pinky promise. But …

Barcelona part 1: Sight Seeing

Barcelona part 1: Sight Seeing

May I present to you the first load of pictures from Barcelona. Prepare, cause there are many more to come! I became a real shutterbug, snappin’ everything I saw. I just didn’t trust my memory enough, so I had to capture everything on film SD-card. Barcelona was my first ever flight experience. I had never been in a plane before, so imagine me beeing pretty scared. Now I can tell you that flying is so much fun! I especially loved it when we landed …

Disneyland: The Pictures

Disneyland: The Pictures

Last weekend the boyfriend and I drove to France to go to Disneyland. We had to get up at 4am and were home at midnight, I was so tired! We celebrated my birthday with a huge candy floss and enjoyed the themepark. Here are some {very touristic, I know} photos of the day! You see why I said huge candy floss? It’s 2x the size of my head! I now must return to my books. There is only one week of vacation left and …

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.
