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....

It is just a great place to go for a walk with the family in beautiful green surroundings and meanwhile learn a bit more about farm and village life in days gone by. ...

A wonderful weekend in Hasselt

Hasselt has been one of our favourite cities for shopping and wining and dining for quite a long time now , so when Toerisme Limburg asked me to spend two days here exploring the city a bit further, I did not hesitate at all! Hasselt is al lang één van onze...

Timeless beauty

Last weekend we headed to Belgium's oldest city Tongeren to go and see the 'Timeless Beauty' exposition at the Gallo-Romeins Museum. This exposition is a little bit different from what you usually get to see in this museum (also their permanent collection is worthwhile btw!).         A...

Delicious Ostend

A few weeks ago I was invited by the Ostend tourist board (Visit Oostende) to a lovely beer dinner. You first need to know that I absolutely love Ostend. Not only is it Belgium's only 'real city' by the sea, but there is always something new to discover....
