Antwerp Pride: why there should be more events like this in the world

The Antwerp Pride is an event organized every Summer in Antwerp. The party event takes several days and consists of multiple activities. The main event everyone is always looking forward to the most is the parade. All organisations that are active in or support homosexuality, transgenderness, etc participate in the parade. Everyone puts on their finest clothes or costumes and is dancing happily around. This event is not just a party though. The most important thing about it is to create awareness.

The most beautiful photo locations in Santorini

Santorini truly is one of the most photogenic places I have ever been to. The view of the contrasting white houses built on the dark lava cliffs surrounded by the bluest sky and sea is surreal. I made so many pictures there during my stay, both at the famous Instagram spots and lesser known locations. But don’t think it’s easy to take these epic shots. If you don’t want to wait in line to take your picture (yes, it is that crowded) and you want to be able to reach the epic places behind the “private area” signs, you need to wake up very early (I’m talking about before sunrise).

Little things you can do to save the earth

After reading and watching the news lately, I’m getting so angry and disappointed. Deadly heat waves in China, extreme heat of over 48°C in Spain and Portugal, heat waves and drought in my own country Belgium, wildfires in California, Greece and even in Sweden… and let’s be honest, there’s only one who is responsible for all this: the human race. Don’t even try to deny it. It is you and me who are guilty of destroying our dear planet earth, our home!…

Where to stay in Santorini on a budget (in Oia & Thira)

Santorini on a budget almost sounds like an impossible thing to do. It is the last place you think about when traveling on a budget.

Everyone dreams of staying at those cave hotels at Oia or Thira with their own private jacuzzis and caldeira views. But those are super expensive. If you don’t want to spend 500€ a night, it is still possible to stay in Santorini though…

One day in Utrecht

Recently I spent a weekend in Utrecht and I loved this charming city in the Netherlands! Many call it “Amsterdam’s cool little sister” and I totally agree! You can find the same building styles, canals and vibe, but smaller and less crowded. Even though Utrecht doesn’t have many must see sights, it really is a city you must visit and experience. I stayed for the weekend there, but spending one day in Utrecht is enough to explore it at its fullest.

Megalochori, the hidden gem of Santorini

Sometimes you discover beautiful untouched places “by accident”. Megalochori is definitely one of them. I found this cute little town while looking for the three bells monument in Santorini that I pinned in my favorite maps app*. I completely lost sense of direction (which doesn’t happen to me a lot), so I decided to ask for instructions at the local Family Bakery & Pastry Shop of Megalochori. They didn’t really know about bells near the caldera edge, but they knew of some bells and churches in the town center. So I decided …
