Stadsfeestzaal on the Meir in Antwerp

I already did several posts on Antwerp and believe me… there will be some more in the future! Antwerp is very close to my hometown so we visit it very often. We usually go there to have a stroll through the old part of town, to have a drink at the Dageraadplaats, to visit the trendy Zuid or to go to the Eilandje and its surroundings.

Holland: Amsterdam – part I

Posted on Updated on


A couple of weeks ago we went on a daytrip to Amsterdam. We were with a lovely bunch of people : my sister Maggy, her husband and their three kids, my husband, my two daughters and myself. So quite a pack!

Amsterdam is only a 2 hour’s drive, so it can be perfectly done in one day… although you won’t be sorry to spend longer than a day in Holland’s capital! There is so much to see and do…  Click here if you want to know what we did on our daytrip to Amsterdam!

Belgium: Antwerp – Water-rAnt and ‘Paleis on the Meir’

Posted on Updated on

A beautiful Sunday afternoon in Antwerp.

About  a month ago I spent a beautiful Sunday afternoon with my youngest daughter Elizabeth. We went to Antwerp as there was an event Water-rAnt which I wanted to go to. My daughter went with me with the promise of an icecream… (a little blackmail now and then can’t hurt now can it 🙂 ). Read more about our trip to Antwerp!

Holland: Zwolle and Kampen

Posted on Updated on

Zwolle, Museum De Fundatie.

A couple of weeks ago you could read about the first day of our weekend break to Holland. On the third day we went to a wellness resort, but I have yet to tell you about our second day! Well, actually we wanted to go to Giethoorn, a delightful little village with heaps of canals, beautiful houses and gardens. Unfortunately the weather didn’t look very promising that morning as it was raining cats and dogs, so we decided to visit two little towns, Zwolle and Kampen, instead. Read more about our visit to these two bustling market towns!
