Summer review – July & August 2021

I had been waiting for summer in Belgium basically since September last year but it was, sadly, very disappointing. The month of July especially, since we had rain for days, so much that the country was hit by disastrous floods. However, I was lucky enough to have some days off of work that I used to escape the cold weather and rain and go to warmer places with a lot of sun. I also took a bit of a break from this blog, so this monthly review will be a two-in-one that includes both July and August! My favourite things about these months: Sea, summer and sunny days: I will talk about my adventures a bit more in detail later and in other blog posts, but my favourite thing this month by far was being able to enjoy the sun (and the sea) in three different countries: Croatia, France and Italy. After weeks of rain in Belgium, this was much needed! Visiting islands in Croatia: during my trip to Croatia, which was amazing, one of …

Monthly review – May 2021

This month flew by and I don’t think I was ready for it to end. Even though I did some pretty cool stuff and summer finally started here in Belgium, I do feel like the month of June is coming a bit too early… but well, you can’t really slow down time, and here we are! My favourite things about this month: Bars and restaurants reopened! I think I have been waiting for this moment since November, when they all had to shut down because of the pandemic, so this was definitely a highlight for this month! Of course, now they can only open their outside terraces, but it is still better than nothing, and I tried to make the most of it this month, especially since the weather is finally back to what it should be! Linked to this previous point, I have really enjoyed being outside: having a drink with friends, going to the beach (finally!!), reading in the sun, etc. Everything is better when the weather is nice and the days are …

Her blog is truly outstanding and beautiful, and her posts are incredibly interesting and informative, so if you haven’t done it already, please go and check out her blog!

Monthly review – February 2021

I said in last month’s review that February was one of my least favourite months of the year and that I was looking forward for it to end, but it actually wasn’t that bad, and it turned out to be a pretty good month with some pretty cool highlights! Favourites: Snow: We had some snow in January, but it was nothing compared to the first weeks of February when we had pretty heavy snow that stayed for days. Of course, here it never lasts a long time so you don’t actually have time to get tired of or annoyed by it, and it just makes everything feel magical, even though it’s absolutely freezing! Baby turtles: I told you last month that I had adopted a turtles’ nest through an initiative of two amazing bloggers… well the babies hatched this month and Markus and Micah sent me the cutest pictures of my baby turtles making their way towards the sea. I was so proud for my babies, and contributing to something like this made me want …
