Throwback Thursday – When Things Go Wrong in Greece


We have done the Transfagarasan. We have done the Stelvio Pass. Thus, in the Summer of 2015, Lars thought we were ready for the next challenge: driving to the top of Mount Olympos. It was going to be the adventure of our lives. A challenge to our fear of heights. Thrilling. Dangerous! On that beautiful morning, I looked longingly at…

Throwback Thursday – A Lazy Day in the Bay of Kotor


On our way from Slovenia to Albania in the Summer of 2015, we decided to stay one day in the Bay of Kotor and explore this beautiful area. But things took a different turn… Lars and I had calculated that we would arrive in Kotor late in the afternoon. But our GPS stopped working as soon as we crossed the…

Awesome Aachen – Part 2


After the candy shop, something else caught our attention: a group of statues near the Elisenbrunnen. And it kept on raining and raining on our way to the town hall. Located opposite the cathedral, the history of the town hall goes back to the 14th century. It is one of the landmarks of Aachen. We had become hungry again and…

Awesome Aachen – Part 1


After a 2-hour drive, Lars and I arrived in Aachen last Monday. After a bit of rest in our hotel, we went to the centre of town, to have some dinner. We chose a restaurant quite close to the Aachen Cathedral, called Rose am Dom. We felt quite at home in the rustic but cosy interior. The menu features mainly…

Berlin Fabrik is the name of a burger and cocktail bar in Brussels. This weekend, they organise their own version of the famous Oktoberfest. And since we love anything German, Lars and I decided to give this event a try. We took the tram and got off at the Kleine Zavel, made our way to the Grote Zavel and finally…
