Top 4 Museums in Brussels for Kids!

Brussels is one of our favourite cities! We recently spent four months living and working in the beautiful Belgian capital!  Now if there is one thing that I love it’s a good Museum but if there’s one way to turn on the “whinge” mode in Master 6 it’s a good Museum.  Thankfully when visiting Brussels you’ll find some fantastic child …

A little slice of Japan….in Belgium! (Japanese Tuin Hasselt) 

A few weeks ago we visited a gorgeous Japanese Tuin (Flemish word for garden) nestled in the lovely city of Hasselt, around an hours drove from Brussels.  The gardens were gifted to Hasselt by the Japanese city of Itami, to celebrate the two cities becoming sisters cities in 1985.  We visited just in time to see the beautiful cherry blossoms in bloom! …

Why we are going home! 

So a little over twelve weeks ago we made the big move from the UK to Belgium. A country we absolutely fell in love with years ago and one that still pulls on our heart strings!  I haven’t posted in about two weeks largely because the past two weeks have been two of the most stressful, heartbreaking and ultimately soul …

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, …

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, …

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 …
