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&…

Connecterra Maasmechelen with Fitbit| AD

Connecterra Maasmechelen with Fitbit| AD

I want to start this post by stating that the Fitbit Versa shown in the photos was kindly gifted to me at a press event. I was not asked or payed to write a blog post about it. You don’t have to travel far to see beautiful places. Connecterra is an excellent example of that. This large stretch of land was once a coal mining site, but has been turned into a national park after the mine closed in 1987. Overt the years Connecterra has grown to become an astounding national park with lakes and hilltops from where you …

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 …

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 …
