48 hours in Stockholm

Stockholm. Het was vier jaar geleden al love at first sight. Dat kon je hier al lezen. Vorige zomer verhuisde een goede vriendin van ons van Kopenhagen naar Stockholm en de voorbije vakantie trokken we twee daagjes met de kinderen naar daar. ...

De meest gastvrije najaarsbestemming vlakbij, Rijnland-Palts

Rijnland-Palts, de deelstaat in het zuidwesten van Duitsland, heeft heel wat te bieden voor een leuke nazomer mini-break. Ideaal ook voor families met kinderen, die er even tussenuit willen. (zoals wij dus) ;-) Trier. Ik kwam er voor het eerst zo'n 30 jaar geleden (!) onder leiding van mijn toenmalige leraar Latijn en de levendige studentenstad moet toch een indruk op mij hebben nagelaten, want ik keerde er sindsdien nog een héél aantal keer terug....

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!...

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....

4 sunny days in Whitstable

When the misses and I were young... hm, I mean, younger... we used to travel to the UK a lot, especially the South of England and the West Country, we even honeymooned in Cornwall. But somehow we lost sight of this beautiful country the last 15 years (busy travellling the world and so on... ;-)), except for our yearly trips to London, of course. Last year, we picked up on our tradition again and went on two trips, one to Rye and one to Canterbury. For this year's family trip, we decided to visit the lovely seaside town of Whitstable, which is only a 45 minute drive from Dover. We drove the car on the ferry at Calais and enjoyed a wonderful sunny crossing on board of one of the P&O ferries, called 'The Spirit of France'. An hour and a half later, we were already were admiring the famous White Cliffs of Dover. I completely forget how much fun it is to arrive in England by boat!...

Living the life – 4 days on Rhodes

Every summer there is one week that all three of our kids are out of the house all together (scouts camp) and usually the misses and I take that chance to get away just the two of us. It is sometimes good to get away together... I think the fancy term for that is 'to re-connect' once in a while. ;-) ...
