Light festival Knokke-Heist, December 2018

Knokke-Heist now also has its own light festival. A journey along the stars, with the Little Prince as the lure.  The link with the Little Prince was often hard to find for me, but I didn’t have a kid with me to explain it… (“Les grandes personnes ne comprennent jamais rien toutes seules, et c’est […]

Slovenia, July 2018

It’s a region I hadn’t visited before: Slovenia. Maribor (Marburg an der Drau) was our home base, with of course the mandatory city trip to Ljubljana. And for those who like art deco architecture and wonderfully painted churches, it’s certainly worth visiting. And also for ice cream lovers: you can buy them at almost every […]

Bayreuth, July 2018

On our way to Slovenia we made a two-day stop  in Bayreuth, especially known for the Bayreuther Festspiele and Wagner. But it seemed that Bayreuth still had some other nice places to visit, among which an old, unique opera house… Eddy

Auschwitz, June 2018

The goal of my trip to Krakow wasn’t the city itself, the goal was a visit to Auschwitz. In the past I had already visited some former concentration camps, but never Auschwitz. In Auschwitz I, the story of the camps, of the people that ended up in the camps is told. Names and faces are […]

Oscar van den Boogaard is a Dutch writer who got a lot of attention lately, with his book ‘Kindsoldaat’ (child soldier). During a lecture that we attended, he gave some background about the book. A story about his life, the life of his parents, his grand parents and how past, present and future are interwoven, […]

Alhambra, April 2018

Since we weren’t that far from Granada, we had to visit the Alhambra. Our visit was rather short, due to the rain. But even then: the palaces are impressive! Especially considering they were built in the 14th century… Especially when comparing them with the additions by Charles V in the 16th century (unless he was […]

Andalusia, April 2018

Andalusia (in the South of Spain) is usually a sunny and warm place. Except the week that we were there… At the last moment we put a sweater in our suitcase, we really needed it… But, even in the cold Andalusia is a nice place to be. Eddy

CWxRM, April 2018

CWxRM – in full: Coming World Remember Me – is an artistic project that wants to commemorate the 600.000 victims of World War I on Belgian soil. For each of the 600.000 victims a small statue was created, by a volunteer, who ‘adopted’ one of the victims. It’s a story that started nine years ago […]
