If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you’ll know that I have a love for gardens and all things flower related. One of my favourite things to to do during spring, is visiting all of the beautiful gardens Belgium has to offer. Last year I showed you the Japanese Garden of Hasselt but I thought I’d take you to the Botanic Garden of Meise this time. Prepare to be amazed by an overdose of garden themed pictures!
As you may already know, I went to university in Ghent, Belgium. I have spent a good 4 years of my life living there and I absolutely loved it. If I had the opportunity to go back, I wouldn’t think twice about it. It’s such a vibrant city with beautiful buildings, friendly people and good food. Throughout the years I’ve gotten to know so many amazing places in Ghent so it wasn’t easy narrowing it down to a more or less reasonable number but hey, here are 44 things to do in Ghent, that I would recommend (see what I did there?).
I’ve said it before but there’s just something about autumn that makes me feel so cozy, all warm and fuzzy inside. I love the changing colours, the falling leaves, wearing cosy sweaters… Although the weather wasn’t great (it was raining. Again. Damn you Belgian weather!), we went on a little autumn walk in nature reserve De Teut, which is located in Zonhoven, Belgium.
This place, oh this beautiful part of the world. Breathtaking. Picture perfect I’d call it. The Lechtal Valley in Austria is one of the most beautiful areas I have ever visited. We have been coming here since we were kids. My parents started coming here before I was born, when it was just the 2 of them. This place is special to me. So I was overjoyed when we finally got to go back this summer.
To conclude my Rotterdam blog post series I thought we’d have a little chat about Rotterdam in general and if it really is worth a visit. I know many of you immediately think of Amsterdam when someone mentions the Netherlands. But to tell you the truth, there are so many other beautiful parts of the country. And Rotterdam might be something for you too!
