It is maybe true hat Hasselt does not pop up with a lot of details in all the tourism guides, but if you have some time to spend in Belgium or you live in this country, you should definitely pass by for at least a few hours especially in spring.
If you are from places like Greece, Italy, Spain, Croatia, Portugal or the Caribbean then you'll probably tell me that why would you spend your time visiting the Belgian Coast. Well because it's different! I know you won't have the super blue water or the white sand of some other places around the world but you'll get to experience some of the widest and longest beaches out there, making it perfect for long walks/runs on the beach.
Under the tag Gentse Winterfeesten, Gent dressed up in Xmas Cloths decorating the city with lights, but the main action is spread out from Sint-Baafsplein, along the Botermarkt and Klein Turkije to the end of the Korenmarkt.
Leuven is definitely a very nice and cute Flemish city, so it makes it a perfect 1/2 or even full day trip from Brussels. Here some of the 3 most interesting streets of the city (in my opinion of course :))
It's been long that I wanted to write a post about Brussels but as I never got to visit it in a structured way I somehow did not manage to put my thoughts in a clear way together. But now I think it's time to give it a try.
It was brought to my attention by a street-art project called Lier UP, which scope is to bring some color to the city. After that I also saw an advertisement in Leuven station that you can reach Lier in 35 min, so I added this little city to my travel list ;)
It's the city where I live and although small it has a lot of things to discover. Depending on your preferred activities you would cover it in a half or full day.
incredible or not, this is my second time in Bruges and I leave in Belgium for already 7 years. To be honest, there are so many nice places to see that sometimes you don't manage to see all for the second time.
It's beginning to look a lot like Xmas
It's that time of the year when all cities change clothes preparing for the magical Xmas time. The same goes for Leuven which this years pimped up it's Christmas clothes and is all super pretty decorated for Santa's arrival
