‘B Guest’ Bed & Breakfast in Bruges

If you’re planning on visiting Bruges in Belgium in the near future, I highly recommend you stay at B Guest Bed & Breakfast. We just spent the weekend there with my mom and it was simply magnificent. From the location, to the decor, to the hospitality, to the breakfast… everything about it was perfect. The place is owned by Caroline and Gert, a lovely couple that has thought through every single detail and do their outmost to make you feel welcome and comfortable. The room we stayed in at the top of the house (Onze Lieve Vrouwe) has amazing views of Bruges and is stunningly beautiful;  so much so, that I could actually live there! Caroline has exquisite taste and it is reflected in the way she has decorated the entire house.  I will definitely be going back!

I just want to travel…

I think I’m suffering from reverse culture shock. Transitioning into the traveller’s life was really easy, but coming back to my “normal” life is proving more difficult than I thought… I miss the simplicity, colours and beauty of Asia. I’m already planning my next big adventure! :)

Once in a blue moon…

Tonight was a full moon, the second in August, which is also called a ‘blue moon’. I was lucky enough to be in Athens, under the Acropolis, to see it. Magical!

Hartjesdagen 2012

Every year in August I love going to the Zeedijk for Hartjesdagen (Days of the Heart), which are celebrated with a lot of humor, cross dressing and fun. Hartjesdagen are famous for an ‘anything goes’ atmosphere with Amsterdam’s gay community taking a leading role. Here is one of my favourite characters this year! The full set can be found here.

Beautiful Stockholm

Stockholm had been on the top of my ‘European cities to visit’ list for a long time. I finally got to visit this past April and it didn’t disappoint.

Here is a sample of photographs I took. The full set can be found here.

Enjoy!
