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....
"If not now, when?" states one of the many signs next to Tulum's main beach road. It pretty much sums up why @byevamaria and myself decided to head to Tulum for a short break, just the two of us. 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....
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....
Needless to tell you all I quite like Instagram... ;-) I love taking pictures with my phone and sharing them with you all. I myself follow around 900 people simply because all of them inspire me in some way or the other, every day again. This is why I've decided to share some of my favourite Instagram accounts with you all from time to time. Making a selection was incredibly hard, but I tried so... here are my first twenty:...
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.

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!...
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. ;-) ...
My wife and I have always enjoyed travelling together with our kids. In fact, we only really started to explore the world after we had all three of them. Our general advice to families out there would be without any doubt: the younger your children are, the easier it is. It...
