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 wander around the shopping street. They had the biggest Zara I had ever seen and …

Out In The Heath: Turnhouts Vennengebied

Out In The Heath: Turnhouts Vennengebied

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. There’s a strawberry automat next to the road that leads from my town to K’s and it’s fully stocked again since this weekend! It’s a must stop when  we meet each other again at the end of the week. Hmmmmm. After eating what felt like my …

Antwerp: shopping, eating and seeing

Last weekend, K and I headed for the city to enjoy the first sunny days of Spring. It was a most amazing weekend with a visit to the local market and a long, loooong walk through the city and harbor  K picked out a nice old piece of cheese from his favorite market stand and I and finally got myself a huuuuge bag with a nut mix. We enjoyed our treats while catching up on series before we stretched our legs and started our very own tour d’Anvers. Ah. After months of shivering in …

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, so I don’t have to tell you how hectic it was. …

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.

Antwerp in Black And White

Antwerp Central Station | Cathedral | MAS museum | Random Building near the MAS | Me Remember my courageous trip to Leuven two weeks ago? Well, It went great! I did not miss my connection in Lier {I almost did though} And when I arrived there was a kind gentleman who showed me the way to the exit of the station {yes, I got lost in a trainstation}. I had a great time with my girl J! The day after I catched a train to Antwerp to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. As we were walking through the city I snapped these photos.&…
