One of my very first travel blogs was this one from Brussels in which I give tips to experience an unforgettable weekend in Brussels.
It was therefore a total surprise that this blog was named one of the 20 best travel blogs about Brussels by Luggagehero on July 17, 2019.
Florence is by far one of my favorite cities in Italy. That’s why I was very happy to create a travel guide with the best things to do in Florence.
I’m therefore very proud that my travel guide to Florence was published in August 2019 in the 3rd edition of ESCAPE-OLOGY, an online luxury travel magazine.
Our photo of Ginnie Springs was published in one of the most recent articles on Narcity.com. This about the fact that Nestlé wants to use these beautiful natural springs to bottle water. In this way a lot of damage will be done to the natural eco-system of the sources.
We had a great experience in Ginnie Springs and with great love we support the project that wants to prevent the exploitation of these resources. Read the full article here and don’t forget to sign the petition.
I recently had an interview with LieveNieuws. A magazine that monthly ends up in the mail of the inhabitants of Lievegem. Lievegem is the new name for a number of merged municipalities in Belgium, including Zomergem, where I grew up. It was a great honor for me, when they asked me if I wanted to tell something more about my journey as a travel blogger for their January edition about traveling. Below you can read the result.
I’m sorry but the article is only available in Dutch.
During the summer vacation of 2019 we traveled to the Deep South of the United States. On our road trip through no less than 6 states, we also stopped in the picturesque town of Savannah. Savannah is located in Georgia, also known as the peach town.
We stayed in the beautiful hotel The Alida where we had dinner at restaurant Rhett on the ground floor. In Rhett we enjoyed delicious, local, culinary dishes with a modern twist. The magnificent interior with a nod to the authentic 50ties dinner also contributed to a great evening. In short, we had an amazing time there.
It was therefore a great honor when Visit Savannah asked to publish a photo of us, taken in Rhett, in their 2020 Savannah insider’s guide. You can admire the result on page 32.
It was quiet around my blog for a while with the big C, but in January 2021 the new year started well with a nomination for the Belgian travel blog awards, with the article ‘The ultimate guide for the first time in Paris‘ in the category best lifestyle travel.
Unfortunately, the article didn’t win, but being nominated was already a great honor for me. Especially after a year without travel where I mainly had to draw inspiration from my travel memories.
In August 2020 we moved from the city to the Belgian coast. A very big change for me. Since we were busy renovating in combination with the big C, I didn’t have much time to travel. That’s why I decided to better learn my new home town ‘De Panne’.
I soon discovered that De Panne has more to offer than just the beach. Looking for the most photogenic spots, I found some hidden gems. When Radio 2 visited De Panne in the series ‘Zot van’, they wanted to find out about my FAVORITE spots in this versatile town.
On July 21, I was interviewed on the radio and my top 5 spots in De Panne were shared on the official radio 2 instagram account.
After a long period without travel, the summer of 2021 was a milestone for many avid travelers. We could travel again! It was therefore no surprise that everyone wanted to plan a trip.
This also became an important theme in the media. The online magazine Nina gave weekly travel tips. For one of these articles they asked me to share my tips for taking beautiful travel photos. Since this is my passion, I was of course happy to participate in this.
The tips appeared in the form of an interview on July 23, 2021 in Nina. You can read the full article with all my tips for the best travel pictures here.
