Hello, London!

Walking around London is so fun, especially because there are a lot of beautiful buildings and tourist attractions to see. We managed to walk around 21 km in one day and I only got 1 blister (it’s kinda ok, I guess). We arrived at 5am so we had the privilege of discovering the center of London with only a few people around. In front of Buckingham Palace were zero tourists and that felt really good, because the photos we made are tourist free and picture perfect. But I hope you enjoy them all !!! Kisses, C.

This weekend we decided to visit the lovely town Brugge that is famous for its Venice like streets and canals. It didn’t rain so we walked a couple of hours and just enjoyed the medieval atmosphere of this important tourist attraction from Belgium.

As always, scroll down for some of the best pictures we made.

Love, C.

Hello and welcome to my new neighborhood Wilrijk, in Antwerp.

When it’s sunny in Belgium, you can walk carefree and enjoy all the beautiful architecture. The green decor is stunning because it’s groomed with all the care and the respect it deserves.

So here are the pics. Hope you like them.

My birthday trip to Paris

Hello, beautiful ones!

Yesterday was my birthday. I turned 26 and I received one of the best gifts ever: a road trip to Paris, France.

If you want to see the pics and my comments, please continue reading.

First of all, let me tell all about the crazy traffic in Paris… It’s craaazy! We went on a Thursday, so I’ve expected to be less crowded than the weekend but I was wrong. The Parisian people have a very frenetic way of driving, but surprisingly, they all go on their paths in a “chaotic order”.

You see on their streets a very large mix of colorful Smarts, Scooters, Vespas and Piaggios that fill the roads paved with one of the most beautiful buildings I’ve ever seen. You can tell that they had a lot of time perfecting this fashionable city in every way possible.

But with no further ado, let’s see the pics all ready! 🙂
