I’m back! Three weeks of wandering from Johannesburg down to Cape Town left me mesmerized, sun burnt and with a full-on country crush. And out of the abundance of the heart… Because boy, does my heart have stories to tell! But instead of writing a novel-sized blogpost with all of the things I want to share, I’d thought I’d break it down and start by the beginning. The first (and if you ask me: most magical) part of our journey:… Read more »

packed outfit

Howdy y’all! Reporting life from Austin, Texas:)  Enjoying the brainy geek fest that is #SxSW, or, as the word wizard also known as my boss has beautifully put it: confronting heat, thirst, endless steaks, burning sun, lousy beer and rattlesnakes, to gather as much information as we can get during long days, and endless nights. As you might suspect: this girl is one happy camper :) And as every seasoned camper (strictly for this analogy’s sake that is, there’s no world… Read more »

Plus, doesn’t every weekend feel like a mini holiday with this weather? Pick-nicks in the… Read more »

There are some cities in the world that conjure up very specific and instantaneous associations. Who pictures Paris without the Eiffel Tower or Sidney without its Opera House? Likewise, when mentioning Orlando, Florida to any girl with a lingering princess complex, you will most likely spot a little fairy dust in her eyes… So you can imagine how excited I was, when given the opportunity to travel to the Orange County. Not only did I get to meet and swap… Read more »

Leisurely Living @ Languedoc

Did I mention before how much I love travelling to France? Admittedly, it’s far from an exotic destination for us Belgies, but having this broad variety of holiday scenes and delights just a road trip away is part of its charm, if you ask me. (Someone once told me that the tendency to drive over 10 hours to a holiday destination, rather than just hopping on a plain is SO Belgian. Wondering if that is in fact the case…). We… Read more »
