A Not So Successful Day in Dinant


The last Sunday before Christmas, Lars, Vanessa Morgan and I decided to visit Dinant, a beautiful town in the French-speaking part of Belgium. But things didn’t go as planned… Problem number 1. There is no direct train between Brussels and Dinant. The only solution is a two-hour train-trip with lots of stops, something I wasn’t aware of when I bought…

TBT Thursday – Enjoying La Dolce Vita in Berbenno di Valtellina


A new item on the blog! Since Lars and I still have to share lots of stories and pictures of our summer trip of 2015, we will feature these on TBT Thursdays.

An Alternative 60th Birthday in Brussels – Part 2


Thursday, 8 September 2016 was the day that Lars turned 60. And on that sunny day, we went to the Grand Place. The Belgian capital often organises free events, especially in summer. On the birthday of Lars, we could actually watch the Belgian finals of put shot for men, as part of the Memorial Ivo Van Damme, an annual athletics…

Japanese Birthday Dinner


I celebrated my 48th birthday yesterday. Lars bought me a drone, something I had been dreaming about for a long time! We wanted to test it yesterday, but because of thunderstorms we had to postpone our plans. In the evening we went to a local Japanese restaurant, called Sushi World. Have a look at their website; we went to the…
