The 5 best things about Europa-Park in Rust, Germany

If you have kids like we do, theme parks come into your life at some point or the other, whether you're a big fan or not. ;-) So like any other family, the past few years we went on day trips to Plopsa, the Efteling, Bobbejaanland and so on and so on... Last week however, we were offered the chance to discover one of Europe's biggest and best theme parks, Europa-Park in Rust, Germany. Although the Park has been voted Europe's favourite theme park for several years in a row now... we had never heard of it... All the reason to go and see what is was all about! From where we live, it's a five and a half hour drive to the park. To know if we liked it or not... you'll have to read on!...

Go West! 24 hours in Nieuwpoort

Westtoer asked me and my family to come round to explore the Belgian seaside town of Nieuwpoort. Since we love taking trips all together... off we went! First stop of the day was the brand new concept store Kabine Koksijde....

10 things we did (and didn’t do) in Tulum

This blogpost is by no means the ultimate guide to Tulum (plenty of blogs about that btw), no, it's just an overview of what we did (and didn't do) in the six days we had....

To the left To the left – a roadtrip through Warwickshire

Last Friday, Sunny Cars invited me to go on a roadtrip through Warwickshire, in the heart of England. Being a real England-lover, as you could already read here and here, I naturally was very excited! We flew in the morning from Brussels Airport to Birmingham in less than an hour. Sunny Cars had three great cars for us ready and waiting....

Biesonder Boeiend Bilzen

The Province of Limburg is one of our favourite regions in Belgium to spend a short holiday. It's closeby, very green and the people are always super friendly! So naturally, I was very pleased when Toerisme Bilzen asked me to come down together with my family for a fun weekend! We stayed at the very comfortable Biezonder Holiday Home in Eigenbilzen. De provincie Limburg is één van onze favoriete bestemming voor een kortbij-vakantie. Het is er altijd heerlijk rustig, erg groen en de mensen zijn er super-vriendelijk! Natuurlijk zei ik meteen 'ja' toen Toerisme Bilzen ons vroeg om een weekendje daar door te brengen. We verbleven in het uiterst comfortable Vakantiehuis Biesonder in Eigenbilzen....

La vie est belle

Lucky me. For my birthday last April,  I received a voucher from my two best friends and my wife for a day trip through the Flemish countryside driving a true classic: the Citroen DS. I have always loved this car and she - yes, it's a she - has featured on my Instagram account numerous times before....
