The historic center of Prague


I have to admit it, I fell in love with Prague immediately! I had never seen so many beautiful intact historical buildings in one town. This is a place I surely want to visit again and again.

Misty mountain


Sounds impressive, doesn’t it? Unfortunately, there are no mountains in Belgium, so whenever you see the word “berg” – Dutch for “mountain” – it should be interpreted as a hill. The Viking and I went to a place called Kemmelberg. It’s a hill of about 160 meters high, not far from the small village called Kemmel. It’s situated in West…
