Antwerpen: bling bling?

There is much more to Antwerp than diamonds, but I guess that’s a big thing. Other than that, it’s got a very nice zoo, great architecture, an amazing train station,…, Continue reading “Antwerpen: bling bling?”

The European Parliament Mall

Yes. Maybe you already know this. Maybe not. Either way, you should! Brussels is the home to the European Parliament. What that means is that we get to have a lot more traffic more often. Continue reading “The European Parliament Mall”

Yes! (Well… sort of.) Mini Europe is the only place in the world where you can visit almost the whole continent in about an hour (more if you make a few stops). This unusual museum displays models (to scale) of majors cities in Europe. Continue reading “The Atomium is right next to the Eiffel Tower -that’s a fact!”

Cranes are not only for building

Below, you’ll find photos of cranes taken at Pairi Daiza -a zoo in Southern Belgium. I don’t usually like visiting zoos because I don’t think it’s necessary to keep animals captive. (Unless it’s for the purpose of saving a species). But this park is a little different, and they even take elephants on a walk around facilities once the visitors are all gone at night.
