Nowadays, all you hear is you can’t do this, you can’t do that. This closes, that is forbidden. Everyone is just so negative. But why always focus on the things you can’t do? Why not have a look at the million things we are still allowed to do? At least today :-)? While zipping our…
In the beginning, when this all started, some people said that wearing a face mask will become like wearing a seatbelt was decades ago : after a while it will become so normal that nobody talks about it anymore and everybody just wears it. It couldn’t be more true! Even though I occasionally still forget…
The 7 Seas
Brussels, our Capital.
Know your Masters
Lockdown seems eternal. We are allowed to go out for some particular reasons, but none of it is much fun. Shopping in crowded cities with masks on, having to wait in line, being attentive not to come too close to others, wiping your hands with gel so often the skin bursts. That’s not really relaxing…
Welcome to a New World
This is totally and utterly surreal. When we left our country less than 1 month ago on this photographic trip to Buenos Aires, the world was still how we knew it, the world I grew up in. There had been many changes over the years, but all those changes came slowly and we chose to…

The Sorrow of Belgium
The best thing about summer temperatures is that they are generally followed by thunderstorms. And that’s exactly my favourite kind of weather. As much as Belgians fear temperatures above 25 degrees, they also fear thunderstorms. The country even gets ‘codes’ when there might be thunderstorms coming. Code yellow, code orange, code red… depending on how…
The experience is real!
As I mentioned in my previous post, should one embrace tourism or try to stop it? Well, I guess what you will read here is kind of my answer to it! You all know Gent, right? Ghent, Gand, Gante, or whatever you call it in your language? It is a beautiful medeaval city, a lot…
Back in the game…?
Has this blog become dormant? Maybe it looks like it, but well, it isn’t anymore! We are now 3 years further in the 21st century and here I am again. A tourist, no longer an expat and always a local. Yes guys, I guess I have officially moved out of Argentina! For years I have…
