Apple Picking in Haspengouw

Apple Picking in Haspengouw

According to Statbel, the Belgian statistical office, there are currently 11.376.070 people living on the 30.528 KM² piece of land known as Belgium. Said little piece of land is divided into 10 provinces. And today I am taking you on a day trip to my favorite one: Limburg! Or as we Antwerpians like to call it “The Limburg”. I am imagining the Limburgers reading this collectively clicking away from my blog now. More specifically I’m taking you along on a field trip to the beautiful region of Haspengouw. Haspengouw is best known for its fruit farms, country …

Gdańsk Foodie Diaries

Gdańsk Foodie Diaries

It’s been a while since I wrote about our trip to Gdańsk, but I just realized I forgot to share my food diary with you all! The harbor city was my first acquaintance with Poland and to say that it made a good first impression on me would be an understatement. Next to some of the most entertaining museums I have ever visited and an absolutely beautiful historic city center, the cities food scene also blew me away.  Fun places to have a bite and coffee bars especially are one of the things I always look …

London Photo Diaries

London Photo Diaries

Now that the Royal Wedding is still hot and happening, I thought it was a good time to finally share my photos from London! You might spot the pretty fall foliage, which gives away that I visited London some months ago now. It was a glorious weekend in October, so we enjoyed nice long walks through South Kensington and the Kensington Gardens. We discovered some lovely breakfast and lunch spots and tried some of the best coffee bars around the Aldgate area. I spend about half a day in Victoria’s Secret trying to discourage my friend from spending …

The maritime resort of Sopot is a popular day trip from Gdańsk because it is close by and easy to reach by train. Sopot lies by the Baltic sea and is well known for its many luxurious hotels, spas and restaurants as well as the long wooden pier that stretches far into the salty water. This seaside town is refined, with many beautiful old buildings that date back more …

A Visit to The Zwin, Belgium

A Visit to The Zwin, Belgium

On a cold morning in February, my boyfriend an I decided to drive to the Belgian sea side for a day. We never go to the sea side. There’s nothing to do when it rains and it’s bustling with tourists as soon as the sun decides to peek from behind the clouds. Add to that the infamous Belgian traffic and you get a recipe for “nah, let’s just go somewhere else”. However, there’s a nature reserve near Knokke that I had been wanting to visit for many years. Following the …

Gdańsk and I, a Love Story

Gdańsk and I, a Love Story

I can hear you going “G-what“? Gdańsk is a harbor city the North of Poland and a relatively new tourist destination. Most people who pass through Poland will stop at Warsaw or Krakow and an odd few visit Poznan as well. Gdańsk is still a bit the odd man out. The city is unknown to many Millenials, which is a sad given since Gdańsk was the scene of an enormous social revolution that has set the tone for modern day living in Europe. I’m not a history teacher, so I’m going …
