Spring in the park!  

Yesterday we decided to pack a picnic and head to the beautiful Parc du Cinquantenaire which is in the European Quarter of Brussels. This parc is home to the the Cinquantenaire Musuem, Royal Museum of the Armed Forces and AutoWorld as well as some beautiful parkland! The sun didn’t exactly have his (or her!) hat on but we headed out with coats on, …

What type of traveller are you? 

I’ve been thinking about our travel habits lately and thought I’d ask the question, what type of traveller are you?  Are you a planner or a last minute traveller? – We are most certainly the latter. In fact we have been known to book and travel on the same day! I am not very patient when it comes to travel. The …

Snapshot Sunday 19th March 2017

This week we have been treated to some much needed sunshine! I thought I would start a new series called “Snapshot Sunday ” to share my favourites pic or pics from the week. More for us to look back on really 🙂 These are just a few shots from this week. Unfortunately the clouds and rain are back this weekend, …

The Perils of Itchy Feet!! 

I’ve just turned 39, one year off the big 4-0!! For at least half of my life I have have led what can only be considered a nomadic lifestyle. Whether moving houses, cities or countries I have always had a burning desire to move on!  My parents emigrated to Australia in 1981 from a small village in the Borders of …

Tapas at The Purple Rose (Brussels) 

Last Sunday we headed into the centre of Brussels. The sun was finally out so we wanted to explore a little more without getting soaking wet!! The last few weekends have been very wet indeed.  After pottering about soaking up the sun and the sights for a couple of hours our tummy rumbled so que the decision about where to …

Red Star Line Museum (Antwerp) 

We took a little overnighter to Antwerp recently and decided to explore the Port area of the city (Eilandje). It’s an area we haven’t really spent much time in so with the sunny shining our first port of call (pun intended!) was the Red Star Line Museum.  This Musuem is dedicated to telling the story of emigrants from all over Europe …

(REVIEW) Holiday Inn Express Antwerp City North 

During a recent stay in Antwerp we booked the Holiday Inn Express Antwerp City North for one night. We booked via booking.com as we always tend to do. We booked for a Friday night and the rate was €89 for a family room including a continental breakfast which we thought for a weekend in Antwerp was pretty good!  Parking is available at the hotel …

MOOF Museum (Brussels)

So Sunday heralded another day of rain in Brussels. We aren’t ones to still around all day so we started looking for something fairly local and undercover if possible. Google provided a few suggestions, one that was rather intriguing was the MOOF Museum! The what you say? That was our reaction. Located pretty much in the centre of Brussels we soon …

Car Mania at AutoWorld (Brussels) 

Now I am far from a what you would call a car fan, but the two male members of this family are huge vehicle enthusiasts!  Our 5 year old son has been asking for weeks to visit Brussels large car museum. With the weather due to be rainy and pretty bleak, we decided today was the day to visit AutoWorld, Belgium’s …
