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!
April went by so quickly and was filled with amazing and beautiful things. It felt a bit hectic at times (what a surprise), but I really felt like I was making progress with my goals while still enjoying the spontaneity that the sunny weather allowed!
A few weeks ago, I was able to fulfil one of my long-time dreams of going to Iceland, and it was truly amazing. I went there at the beginning of March and stayed there for a week. It was still winter, so to avoid being blocked by snow or other weather-related problems, we decided to go on a road trip in the South of Iceland, which has lower risks of snowstorms. For this trip, we followed (and adjusted) an itinerary that I found on the Iceland Trippers blog, created by the couple behind the Follow Me Away blog and Instagram account. There, you’ll find everything you need to know about Iceland, as well as great itineraries and travel-related tips! They also have an amazing Instagram account so you should definitely check them out! Day 1: Reykjavik and the Golden Circle Our first day in Iceland was initially all about exploring the Golden Circle in details. The Golden Circle is the main tourist road in Iceland as it has some of its most famous landmarks: a …
With a week spent in Iceland and two days in Amsterdam, I feel like March was very short and extremely eventful at the same time. I think that I managed to truly enjoy the glimpse of spring we’ve had and also the quiet times in between.
I know this monthly review comes very late, but I just came back from a trip and sadly didn’t have time to write anything before leaving or while I was away, so here it is!
Behind this odd name is a beautiful 6 km hike that follows the course of the only Belgian mountain stream throughout tall trees, slippery bridges (in winter) and beautiful waterfalls. I went there with some friends at the beginning of the year and it definitely exceeded all my expectations.
This first month of the year felt very busy and really quiet at the same time. It seems like it flew by but also as if it had lasted 2 whole months. It was a good one though, I feel like I was able to do many things and to follow a bit my resolutions and goals.
I am finally back with a short blog post to tell you about a very nice local adventure I went on in December of last year. I haven’t uploaded one of these in a while and it is one of the things I really want to start doing a bit more of this year, so let’s start with a small throwback to 2021!
This past year was obviously marked by the pandemic, and even though there was some “getting back to normal”, things still aren’t like they used to be. However, I was extremely lucky in 2021 to be able to travel a bit, see friends and go out, and overall, I have to say that my year was filled with adventures. 2021 highlights: Work and university degree: this year was very intense, including professionally. I got very rewarding news at work with an extension of my current contract, and also finished my university degree (the 2nd year) in astrophysics! I don’t talk about it a lot but I still feel quite proud of what I managed to do! Hobbies: I talk about them in every monthly review, even though it is usually to say that I didn’t have enough time for them ahah. Between learning to use a sewing machine, reading, playing the piano, learning Russian and painting (very rarely though), I did keep myself quite busy outside of my working hours. I love having all of …
Happy New Year everyone! 🥳 And like that again, another month comes to an end. December was cheerful, very busy but also relaxing. I very much enjoyed the Christmas atmosphere, even though I wish my holidays were much much longer…!
