Baden-Baden, Germany

One of the pluses of living in Strasbourg, is that it borders on Germany (and Switzerland is not so far away either), so you can plan a last minute trip to another country for the price of less than 15 euros return on FlixBus. Wow, who would have thought freedom of movement could actually be, [...]

Colmar, Alsace, France

Colmar, Alsace, France

Fun fact: Colmar, located in the Alsace region of France, is where the designer of the Statue of Liberty was from. But other than these cute little arrows guiding you around the hotspots of the small town, it was far more boastful of its Alsatian heritage. It is also just a cheap hour FlixBus ride [...]

A New Chapter in Strasbourg

Bonjour! A new update in life means I've needed to update my Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and now this blog. I left Brussels at the end of July, having completed my internship with the Greens, and now I am currently undertaking another with the communications department of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg!

Strasbourg, France

The adorable buildings, the canals surrounded by nature, the delicious food...all not done justice, so you will have to go yourself. To be fair, I was there [...]

Ghent, Belgium

Ghent, Belgium

May Day = Labour Day = No work day! With a random day off work and surprisingly no rain forecast, I used my Go Pass 10 to take a trip to Ghent, which is only around 40 minutes from Brussels by train. Once you reach the city centre - it is as quaint and as [...]
