Winter in Iceland – 6 days itinerary

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.

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 …

Monthly review – January 2021

The first month of the year is already coming to an end and my very positive energy from the start of the year is already wearing off a bit – yay! I hope you all had a good start of the year despite the world situation that hasn’t changed much. This month’s highlights: Adopting a turtle’s nest! After reading this post on Markus and Micah’s blog, I immediately decided to sponsor a turtle’s nest. Markus and Micah have the nicest blog where they publish really interesting posts on a wide variety of subject, one of them being climate change. I highly recommend checking their blog out – if you don’t know it already – as I’m sure you will love it! Through them, I adopted a turtle’s nest to protect the turtles in their region, as they are an endangered and very vulnerable species. I received pictures from the hatchery and I’m extremely happy to be able to contribute to this amazing project of theirs! Cooking and baking: I have tried many new recipes this …

Monthly review – December 2020

Even though it is a cold month, December is nevertheless one of my favourites of the year: it is festive and feels very cosy, and the holidays, even though they were different this year, are, at the very least, a nice break! On top of it, the days start getting longer, and the new year approaching always brings some hope. My favourite things about this month: The festive vibe: even though there weren’t Christmas markets in Belgium this year, the streets and shops were still nicely decorated, as well as individual houses. In my own flat, I put up cute fairy lights everywhere – you never have too much of them – and streamed a fireplace video from Youtube almost all the time, it was so cosy! Indulging… in gingerbread cookies, spiced drinks and festive biscuits. You can obviously do this all year round, but I was extra motivated this month – and it also made my home smell amazing, which is always a good thing. The holidays also gave me more time to read …
