Some months ago, I went to the Train World museum in Brussels to see the temporary “Orient Express” exhibition, which presented the history of this famous train and even showcased parts of it. I have always been fascinated by trains and this exhibit seemed like a perfect way to go on a local adventure and learn new things.
Located in the Verdon National Park in the South of France, Moustiers-Sainte-Marie is a charming little town in the heart of Provence that has been listed as one of the most beautiful villages of France and attracts many tourists each year, thanks to its stunning location and very “Provençale” atmosphere.
Summer is definitely underway now and I already have a lot of things to share, holiday plans and goals and vision for the time of the year, which is probably my favourite. I feel like summer is the time of the year where I have more time, I dedicate myself to my hobbies much more and I just have more energy overall.
After many months waiting for warmer temperatures, summer finally arrived in Belgium too, and with it lots of fun activities and things to do. It felt as if the city woke up after many cold days and especially after 2 years marked by the pandemic restrictions.
The Elaphiti islands, or Elaphites, are several islands stretching out just northwest of Dubrovnik. The three main ones are Koločep, Šipan and Lopud, but there are many smaller ones as well. They are accessible by boat, and there are many tours that start in Dubrovnik and take you around them.
Lokrum is a beautiful island located less than 15 minutes away from Dubrovnik’s old town, so it is perfect for a day or half-day trip if you want to escape the tourists or the heat. There are ferries that regularly go there throughout the day, so you just have to check their timetables and hop on the one you like!
What are the moments you remember the most about last year, last month or last week? What are some of your happiest memories? And how can you create happy and meaningful memories to remember in many years?
This month of May felt like the perfect spring-beginning-of-summer month, with warm sunny days and rainy ones, packed with outdoors activities and little adventures. It was also a month of planning and looking forward to summer holidays, which I can’t wait for!
In the north-western part of the Brussels region, the area of Laeken is known for its huge park, the Atomium, the Mini-Europe tourist attraction and the Royal Palace and Greenhouses. It is there that the Belgian royal family has its official residence (yes, there is a Belgian royal family!). Once a year, the Greenhouses open their gates for only a few weeks to allow everyone to see how majestic and beautiful they are.
If you’re not new here, you may have realised that I have a thing for flowers: they brighten up a gloomy day with their touch of colour, liven up a room with their sweet scent and they are simply the sign that spring, summer and longer, warmer days are coming. So, of course, it was almost my duty to check the Floralia flower show, right next to Brussels!
