    Atomium and Plasticarium

    July 9, 2019 in Belgium ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Amazing morning at the Atomarium built for the 1958 World Expo.
    Mind blowing visual exhibition inside called “ A circular journey”- could have spent hours watching.
    Beat any expectations.
    The design museum aka plasticarium was full of super cool furniture and domestic items.
    All of this followed by the best salad lunch in a little cafe up the road from our accommodation.Read more

    Aldi toidupood

    July 15, 2019 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Tahtsime tegelt minna Timmermansi õlletehase tuurile, sest Belgia on tuntud enda õlu poolest, aga jõudsime kahjuks liiga hilja kohale ja kõik oli juba kinni.

    Kuna meil söögipoolis oli otsakorral, siis läksime esimesse poodi mis Brüsseli teepeal jäi. Selleks osutus väiksemapoolne pood nimega Aldi. Meid Kadriga hämmastas kui odavad hinnad siin poes olid. Enne seda olime Prantsusmaal kus polnud küll röögatult kallis, aga kallim kui Eestis ikka. Siin Brüsseli külje all aga tundub, et on toidud Eesti hindadega või isegi odavamad. Vorst 1.5€, sai 0.40€, salat ja muu odavam kui Eestis. Alkohol märkimisväärselt odavam kui Eestis.Read more

    Europa im Schnelldurchlauf

    September 16, 2018 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Ein Tagesabstecher durch Europa und Brüssel im Miniaturformat. Das gibt es nur in der belgischen Hauptstadt Brüssel, die gleichzeitig Hauptstadt Europas ist.
    Ein cooler Ausflug mit vielen neuen Inspirationen für kommende Reiseziele.

    A Love Supreme followed by a late supper

    September 20, 2019 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    After Geertje met up with us and we had a drink, we headed off to Forest via metro and tram and a dance performance put on by the KAAI Theater that she works for. In ”A Love Supreme”, John Coltrane and his musicians start from blues based structures and construct a completely free improvisation that continuously breaks new ground. In 2005, choreographers Salva Sanchis and Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker created a quartet set to Coltrane’s music. His jazz is renowned for its exploration of the tension between tonal and rhythmic complexity and simplicity. This is translated literally in the dance: improvisation and composition interweave until they fuse completely. In 2017, Sanchis and De Keersmaeker adapted A Love Supreme with four young, male dancers. The performance was great, and the dancers were superb and enjoyed by all.

    Following the performance, with the dancers getting at least 4 curtain calls, we made our way back on public transport to the city centre and went in search of a late dinner. We first tried a favourite Italian place that they like, which was close to where Lisa, their daughter used to live, but the chef said no he was finished for the night. We then tried a traditional Brussels restaurant Le Pré Salé on rue de Flandre, and we had success, but had to chose our meals in one minute or the kitchen would be closed.

    We were very decisive - Geertje and I had Moules Frit, Gui had Lapin (rabbit), and Ian meatballs, and of course we washed this down with a bottle of red! The food and the company was lovely and we laughed a lot .

    We then headed back to our apartment, and Gui and Geertje caught the subway to Stockel, and then drove the rest of the way. Ian was feeling quite tired after 2 fairly late nights, and so headed off to bed immediately, whereas I stayed up to work on my blog a little more.

    D3.11 Zouthostel!

    January 24, 2015 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 3 °C

    We hadden geluk! Ondanks de regen wouden de chauffeurs het er toch op wagen om naar dit dorp te komen om dan te proberen de zoutvlakte over te steken. Voor zij die het nog niet begrepen hadden: (bijna) alles was van zout gemaakt :-)!

    Kleine kanttekening: als er veel water in de zoutvlakte ligt kan dat mogelijk gevaarlijk zijn voor zowel auto, als mens. Later hebben ze toch besloten een veiligere weg door de zoutvlakte te volgen.Read more
