October is one of my favourite months of the year, because all the leaves in the trees turn orange and red, the weather is “cosy cold” – as opposed to freezing cold – and it is also my birthday month. This year, it was very busy but at the same time amazing! My favourite things about this month: My latest trips and adventures Hobbies and distractions: General thoughts: There were a lot of exciting and new things happening in October, in all areas of my life, and with the last two weeks of holidays I have mainly felt incredibly grateful to be able to afford and have everything that I do. These past few months have also been really busy and as this was my last big holiday of the year, I am also longing for calmer weeks and going back to a nice routine in my place.

Have you always wanted to escape your daily life and the hustle and bustle of the city you live in? Do you want to spend some time away from technology, reconnecting with yourself, a friend or a partner? Do you feel like you need to be surrounded by nature to truly relax? Well, staying in a cabin in the woods might be just what you need!
Already some weeks ago, the weather started to get rainier and colder, pumpkins started to appear in the stores, I seem to reach out to my blanket more and more, and sleeveless tops have been covered with chunky jumpers. It seems like Autumn is very much here, and even though letting go of summer is hard, I am quite excited for what this new season will bring – if it ever stops raining!
Even though September is supposed to be a summer month for the most part, this year it was really hard to forget that Autumn and Winter were on their way. Thankfully, I managed to extend the summer a bit with some holidays at the beginning of the month, but since I have been back to Brussels, it is mostly grey and rainy.
These two summer months have just been amazing. My summer started off with two weeks of holidays where I went to visit my family in the South of France and Italy – where I also traveled to Tuscany. After a few weeks in Brussels, I left again for an idyllic week in Greece, followed by two weeks in Brussels.
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.

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!
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!
