A Walk in Paradise – Trees

By | 7 Comments

Orange trees, bay trees, different types of palm trees, cinnamon trees, fig trees, … I was in awe, not only by the huge variety, but also by the size of some of the trees. As soon as you enter the Winter Garden and especially the Congo Greenhouse, you feel as if you are walking on a tropical island or in…

Yesterday I published our last post about Hungary; we hope you enjoyed our stories and our pictures! As I promised you, we will now post about our visit to the Royal Greenhouses of Laeken last Saturday. These are located right next to the Royal Palace of Laeken. In case you didn’t know, the Belgian royal family has two palaces: the…

Between Donau and Balaton – Time to Say Goodbye

By | 2 Comments

It was time to go back. It was time to say goodbye to Kőszeg, the small town that had been our home for a week. The weather had changed again; gone was the rain. We could see some clouds and sunshine. Lars and I decided to have a short stop in the center of town. It is actually quite pretty with…

It was our last day before going back to Belgium. And it rained. A lot. And it kept on raining… Lars and I decided that we would certainly see better weather if we headed down south.

About 3 years, Lars and I had passed Slovakia on our way to Croatia, but we hadn’t had the time to visit anything. I was very eager to see Bratislava, a city I knew nothing about. We arrived there late in the afternoon and decided to visit Bratislava Castle. If you want to know everything about the history of the…

Between Donau and Balaton – Villa Urbana

By | 6 Comments

Now that Lars and I had this combined ticket, it would have been stupid if we hadn’t visited one of the other historical sites. So off we went to Petronell – Carnuntum. The main site is the Open Air Museum, which is situated in the Hauptstrasse 1 and where you can visit the Roman city quarter. But first of all,…

Between Donau and Balaton – Stumbling upon an amphitheater

By | 0 Comments

Although I love the waterside very much, I thought after having stopped at 3 villages and taken pictures of the Donau, that it was about time to continue our trip to Bratislava. I didn’t want to bore you to death with dozens of photographs of the river (especially not after all the pictures of the Balaton lake). While we were…
