For 2023, adopt a sea turtle nest!
In 2020, a small community of the Bataan province in the Philippines built a hatchery to protect the nests of the endangered pawikan (sea turtles) that came to lay eggs on the beach. To support the conservation efforts, you can too donate a small amount of money to “adopt” a nest and help the community…
My Winter bucket list
I know winter is still not officially till the 22th December, but it already feels very much there, and the festive season has already started, so I decided to post this a bit earlier! As you know, winter is probably my least favourite season, but it does have some things that I love, mainly the…
A small guide to staying in a small cabin in the woods
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…
My 2022 Autumn Bucket list
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…
All aboard the Orient Express!
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…
My 2022 summer bucketlist
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…
The Royal Greenhouses of Laeken, Belgium
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…
Celebrating spring: the Floralia Brussels flower show
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…
The Ninglinspo hike in the Belgian Ardennes
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.
Lanterna Magica: an enchanted evening walk
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…
