The Big Move – Competa


It took us some months, but Lars and I finally did it: pay a visit to the neighbouring wine town of Competa. It wasn’t the drive towards it nor its location in the mountains that was difficult: getting rid of your car is. After some minutes of wandering in the streets, you arrive at the central square, home to some fine…

Back to The Abbey of Villers-la-Ville


One of the first things I did when I was released from the hospital at the end of March was to photograph again. Almost 5 weeks without photography was unbearable… I wanted to go to a place Lars and I had visited so I could practice again. And a really photogenic place, not far from Brussels is the Abbey of Villers-la-Ville.…

Our Last Spring in Brussels – Part 3


Well, not all spring days are beautiful… I took these pictures at the Kunstberg/Mont des Arts – literally, hill of art -, a historic and cultural neighbourhood in Brussels. It is located between the Royal Palace and the Grand Place and features some of the most popular museums of the Belgian capital such as BOZAR and the Musical Instruments Museum.…

New On Our YouTube Channel!


I had completely forgotten about this, but Lars made a short video about our short stroll in the crypt of Laken/Laeken. By the way, I no longer use the music of my video editing software; instead, I go for the music that YouTube suggests. And I found a melancholy tune to accompany this video. Enjoy!

Creepy Travels – Back To A Haunted Fortification – Part 3


During our visit in the fortification in Sint-Katelijne-Waver, Lars made videos both inside and outside. Some of the videos that he shot inside, however, were completely black; apparently, our GoPro doesn’t function well in conditions with very low light. Nevertheless, I was able to put something together… Don’t forget that this building is on private property; we had permission to…

Creepy Travels – Back To A Haunted Fortification – Part 2


In this part, we explore the interior of the fortification. And we were in for a surprise as soon as we entered the building. Whereas the ground floor was completely covered with junk during our first visit, now most of the junk was gone… We quickly went to the first floor. It didn’t take long to notice that some of…

Creepy Travels – Back To A Haunted Fortification – Part 1


In the summer of 2011, Vanessa Morgan, Lars and I paid a visit to a movie location in Sint-Katelijne-Waver. It was a fortification built in the beginning of the 20th century, surrounded oddly enough by holiday cottages. You can find the original posts here, here and also here. When I transferred the pictures from my camera to my laptop, I…
