Those who have been reading my writings for a while - and have a very good memory - might remember that I have already written a post on the Bay of the Somme back in 2016. Then I went on a weekend trip with my entire family to the area. This time around however, it… Continue reading The Bay of the Somme in a day – by foot and by bike
Back in April, a couple of weeks into the Belgian lockdown, it had already become clear that traveling far outside of our country borders wasn't going to be in the books for the next few months. On a slower day at work, I was talking travels with one of our brokers and he mentioned the… Continue reading An afternoon at the Domaine of Chantilly
When I counted down to midnight on December 31, 2019 I could never have guessed what a rollercoaster of a year 2020 would be. Even when I went to Vienna at the end of January, I would have never believed anyone telling me that all my other travel plans for 2020 would fall through. But… Continue reading Three day roadtrip through Hauts-de-France on a budget
Even after an entire month of being locked up alone in my house, the whole situation the world is living in right now still seems pretty surreal. It feels like it's all a big nightmare or a plot of a thriller movie. But unfortunately it is reality and it frustrates me so much that a… Continue reading Stay inside now, so we can all go out and explore the world again together!
Whenever anyone mentioned Vienna to me before I had visited, the first things that came to my mind were Sisi, the New Year’s Concert and lots of pomp and circumstance. And now that I’m back, that’s still what I’m associating with the city. So I guess my view was pretty accurate. Now I only have… Continue reading Five times splendour in Vienna, Austria
Oh how I wish I could go back two weeks in time. Then I was packing my bags and making some last minute arrangements for our upcoming citytrip to Vienna. Those few days right before a trip are almost as exciting to me as the trip itself. Almost. For such a long time, Vienna had… Continue reading All things practical for a citytrip to Vienna
Eleven days on the road in Norway had brought us to the most northern point of our trip; Andalsnes. There is plenty more of beautiful nature to discover even more north, but sadly we didn’t have any more time to see those. It was time to turn around and head back to Olso. We had… Continue reading From Andalsnes back to Oslo, the final stage of our Norwegian Roadtrip
Phew, another year over and even more impressively another decade that has passed by. My oh my! Is it getting clichéd to say that time is flying by? Because damn it is! 2019 has been a big year for me with many changes in my personal life, the biggest one being moving into my first… Continue reading Here come the twenty-twenties!
Exactly one week after our challenging Trolltunga hike, we had another day planned where we didn’t have to drive anywhere. Time to strap on the hiking boots again and find some magnificent trails to follow. The most notorious hike in the area of Andalsnes is of course Romsdalseggen, a 10,3 kilometer one-way hike where you… Continue reading The highlight of our roadtrip through Norway; hiking Romsdalseggen Ridge
One of the destinations almost every traveler adds to their roadtrip itinerary when travelling through Norway is the Geiranger Fjord. Since this place is a UNESCO World Heritage Site it probably would have been a disgrace to skip it on the grounds of there being too many other tourists swarming the place. It did help… Continue reading A day in the most famous Fjord in Norway, the Geiranger Fjord
