As you know, we aren't full-time travellers and we actually like our day jobs quite a lot. This is why, week-end trips are our elixir of life. Sometimes you just need to open your eyes and see what is around you. Normandy, and more specifically Deauville, is a typical week-end destination for Parisians but also from Brussels it is only 3,5 hours by car. You are looking for beautiful white beaches, historic places and authentic villages? Then this is your place to go.
When travelling, I love spending time in Cafés at the most beautiful places and just enjoy the moment. However, it is not always easy to order your favourite coffee because every country has its own coffee specialties and many local places don't always have a menu. This is what you need to know to order your coffee like a pro on the Canary islands.
After our last year's camper van experience in Slovenia, we just had to have another camper van travel. This time, we chose the low season and a much camper van friendlier destination. So instead of going South, we headed North, to Denmark. This is the full story.
Most people, when thinking about Denmark, think about its capital with its colorful houses, its canals and last but not least its Mermaid statue. Who in Europe has not already thought about a week-end trip to Copenhagen? But there is more to the country than just its capital. Indeed, Denmark is a beautiful country with diverse countrysides from huge white sanded beaches, dunes and cliffs to wide yellow rape seed fields. This is the Denmark we wanted to discover. Here are our 10 must-sees.
If you love nature, an excursion to Mandø island, a small island of 8 km2 with only 40 inhabitants in the middle of the Wadden sea, is a must-do in Denmark. The small access road which gets flooded twice per day makes this day trip an unforgettable experience.
Compiègne, not even 90 kilometers north-east from Paris, is a great place to discover a typical french city far away from the usual beaten tracks. It is also a city with a rich history because Louis XV as well as Napoleon I and Napoleon III came here for leisure and hunting. In the famous forest of Compiègne, the Armistice of the first World War was signed in 1918.
It is this time of the year again. After a long and dark winter, the sun is showing its first appearences, flowers are growing and the general mood improves considerably. It is also the time for long week-ends: Eastern, Labour Day, Ascension Day and Whit Monday all offer great possibilities to travel. You have a long week-end ahead of you and don't know where to go? Why not discover Malta, the Mediterranean Paradise.
With no major experience in camping, we suddenly got this idea of travelling in a camper van to enjoy the freedom of stopping whenever and wherever. We therefore decided to just give it a try by renting a campervan for one week in August 2018. Our main destination: Slovenia.
The carnival of La Louvière in the french-speaking part of Belgium is a traditional event which takes place at the mid-term of the Fasting Period. Celebrations revolve around one symbolic figure: the Gilles.
During our skiing trip to Tyrol, Austria, we decided to spend one day in Innsbruck the capital of the Alps and famous for its baroque architecture and its breathtaking mountain panorama.
