This first “Tips ‘n trips” post of 2016 is a recap of the past 14 posts that have appeared here on “The good, the fab and the lovely”. These past 14 weeks I brought to you posts on trips in Belgium, Holland and France.
In Belgium I visited several towns. Antwerp is near where I live, so I go there regularly. I made a post about an event I went to in September (Water-rAnt). That day I also went to Paleis op de Meir. You should definitely check out the post if you’re interested in good food, chocolate and interior design… at Paleis op de Meir you can find all these things at one adress!
A second post on Antwerp was on the 5th anniversary of a very trendy shop in the Nationalestraat : Renaissance. Check out this post to read all about it!
For the first time I went to press days. These were held on several places in Antwerp. I really had a great time with some fellow bloggers and below you see a selection of goodies I fell in love with that day… Read all about it here!
I can’t get enough of Antwerp… even in winter… there were two more posts : one on the Christmas market and the Sint-Anna foot tunnel (here)
..and another one on the Stadsfeestzaal and the Bourla Theatre (here).
I also visited Bruges, a well-known city not far from the North Sea. There are a lot of beautiful buildings in Bruges and we also visited the museum Historium, which I can really recommend if you want to know a bit about Bruges in the golden age.
A bloggers’ meeting with some fellow bloggers brought me to Leuven. This is a very beautiful student town. I only did a quick stroll through this town, but that was enough for me to decide that I will certainly visit this town again…
And then there was a post on Sint-Niklaas, a bit of a trip down memory lane for me as I spent my schooldays in this town…
There were several posts about our lovely neighbouring country… Holland. We love spending daytrips and weekend in Holland. The Dutch never disappoint us 🙂
I did two posts on a weekend break to Holland. The first one was on the lovely town Amersfoort. We really enjoyed our day in this part of Holland! In a second post on this weekend break I told you more about Zwolle and Kampen. Especially Kampen is really nice as it has so many registered buildings. And in the post about Zwolle I told you more about Schuttelaar, a wine and delicatessen shop where you can taste any wine they sell in the store!
At the beginning of October, I went to Paris with my good friend Katrien… Oh Paris… my heart is still weeping when I think about those horrible attacks in November… but these two posts on Paris really show what Paris is all about… fashion, fantastic food, a beautiful city with great buildings and parks!
And that my dear readers, was another ‘Tips ‘n trips recap’… Which post did you like best? It’s hard for me to pick a favorite… each trip has nice memories!
