A Winter Weekend in The Netherlands

A Winter Weekend in The Netherlands

It’s safe to say that I travel a lot. I plan most of my trips in the months May, June and September to November. The rest of the year you’ll usually find me trotting around Belgium with my camera in one hand and my phone with a list of coffee bars in the other. That doesn’t mean the travel bug doesn’t bite in my ‘off months’. Since I graduated and started working full time in 2016, I’ve noticed a little itch every year around February. My boyfriend and I …

A Day Out In Het Vinne (Zoutleeuw)

A Day Out In Het Vinne (Zoutleeuw)

We’re not ready with winter just yet here on The Ginger Diaries. Today I’m taking you along to my favorite province of Belgium: Limburg! Why is it my favorite? EASY! It’s home to some of my dearest friends, beautiful nature parks, blossoms in spring and the crispiest apples in fall. I love coming here and always discover lovely new places. On our last trip we explored Provinciedomein Het Vinne in Zoutleeuw (Sint-Truiden). I had read a lot about and seen many photos of Het Vinne, especially the wooden pathways circling through the reed and …

A Day in Gewestbos Ravels

A Day in Gewestbos Ravels

No big post today, just a few snaps from a beautiful fall day in the forest. My boyfriend grew up near these woods and I loved coming here ever since we started dating. If you’ve been a longtime reader of this blog, you might also remember that a lot of outfit photos from the beginning were taken in this forest. Oh, how I enjoyed shooting here! There was nobody around to stare of judge us, haha. Quite a difference from where we live today, where I even get yelled at while taking snaps in my own garden (you&…

A Fall Walk in the Sonian Forest

A Fall Walk in the Sonian Forest

You might not have thought of it, but fall in Belgium is actually quiet a sight to see. Lucky me then, because I happen to live here and fall is my favorite season! I have exclaimed my love for fall on this blog numerous times before and am known to overshare images of the changing leaves on my social channels. After a few years of oversharing, I noticed the same question pops up in my inbox year after year: what are the best places to visit in Belgium during the fall? Well my friends, today is the day I reveal&…

Berlin Photo Diaries

Berlin Photo Diaries

Unpopular opinion: I do not like Berlin. My friends always rave about Berlin. The parties, the art, the culture and overall vibe of the city earn their praises. They asked me how on earth it was possible that I had been to nearly every city in Europe, but not Berlin. The truth is that Berlin never appealed to me. And that feeling hasn’t changed after visiting. It could have been the rain, a lack of planning or the fact that it was late Winter when we visited, but this trip left me feeling less than satisfied. I didn&…

2019 Travel Year in Review

2019 Travel Year in Review

2018 was a good travel year. I jetted off somewhere almost every month and even found myself on a different continent in December. For a long time it looked like 2019 was going to be a slow travel year for me. By August I had “only” spend one week in Poland and went on one girl’s weekend in The Netherlands. And then all of a sudden things started moving rapidly. In 2019 I traveled to 8 different countries and 15 cities on a total of 7 different journeys. 3 of those countries and 13 of those cities were new to…
