If you walk Rue Antoine Dansaert until you reach the canal, you will find Walvis. In the corner building, this bar is like a ship ready to sail in to Molenbeek. The windows give a view in tree directions and even though it’s very open, the inside of the bar is cosy and warm.

Bulgarian handcrafts with a lot of charm

These pictures of Bulgarian handcrafts where taken a few years back on a trip to Bulgaria

This was a charming little shop for Bulgarian handcrafts that I passed one night on the way to the old town. I love the colors and the beautiful materials. The shop it self was very inspiring as it was both the shop and the artists atelier. It was located just a few meters from the sea, with fishing boats resting along the sidewalk.
I could not imagine a more perfect place to work. The sound of the water and the warm air that allows you to have only 3 walls in your working space. The artist who was making the leather pieces had her chair in the middle of the road outside the shop. There she was sitting and working on the latest piece unless a customer caught her attention.

Oyé_france

This summer we spent a week in Bourgogne France

Us two with the kids and my parents discovered this lovely region and enjoyed every moment of it..

We drove with the kids from Bruxelles and joined my parents in Luxembourg. From there we joined roads and enjoyed the lovely country side all the way to Oyé in Bourgogne. I remember when the GPS told us that we had 5 km left to our destination. We opened all the windows in the car that was rolling at 50 km/h. The warm air was overwhelming with a sweet and subtile sent of fresh baked bread. I will never forget this.. As we drove the final half hour with our windows down, we kept our eyes open with much curiosity to spot the house that we would live i for the coming week. The house was wonderful, full of charm and all the comfort you could ask for. The two gardens gave to the street and to the back, with a view of the Bourgogne landscape. My favorite came to be the front garden with wild roses, old stones and lovely garden furniture. We spent a wonderful week in Oyé. Most of the time in the back yard swimming pool, but also in the surrounding towns and villages. Bourgogne France was truly a wonderful place and if you enjoy wine, you will find your self at the right place. The Bourgogne red wines are much like Pinot Noir wine, light and fruity but very interesting. As you can see, we took pictures of wine grapes growing wild in our parking lot.. Lovely holidays, I hope to come back one day!

Stockholm-Single Apartments

Some of the lovely single apartments that I once lived in..

I found some old pictures while I was visiting my parents in Sweden and I decided to share some of them with you..

The first pictures are from a single apartment in Stockholm, where I lived briefly before moving to Bruxelles. I spent a few nights there when I was visiting Stockholm over the past years. It was quite lovely actually. I remember the bathroom fondly. It had one of those old and charming shower handles that you hang on a hook..
The other pictures are from my very first apartment in Bruxelles. I have lived in many places here but this was the first place I had to myself.
It was not of the highest standard and there was only one heater for two rooms and kitchen. The toilet was in the public stairs and the shower in the kitchen. Still it turned out quite great and I had some nice times there.
What I loved most about it was the view from the living-room window where you could see the rooftops of all Bruxelles.
It’s really nice to see the old pictures but in the end I am really happy that I live where I live today. It’s the best place so far..
