A weekend Maasmechelen only ideal for shopping addicts? Think again! My mission is pretty simple: I am going to discover Maasmechelen beyond the shopping paradise! Let’s explore natural parks, water sports, local products and mouth-watering Italian dishes. Nature, water and hills The highlight of natural highlights is without any doubt the National Park Hoge Kempen, the 60 square kilometers nature reserve in East Limburg between Genk and the Meuse River. Located in Maasmechelen, Connecterra is one of the six gateways to National Park Hoge Kempen. It

The Terhills Hotel Maasmechelen, part of the Different Hotels group, is a 4 stars hotel in a historic mine building. Located between Maasmechelen village and National Park Connecterra, it’s an ideal base to discover Maasmechelen during a weekend. The charming lady at the reception told me that the hotel aims to offer a cocktail of fashion, nature and comfort… and that’s exactly what we discovered during a sunny September weekend. Terhills hotel As you walk through the beautiful French garden with its fountain and blooming flowers,

Travelling so much around the globe, we tend to forget that we have beautiful cultural heritage just around the corner! Located on a 30 minutes drive from both Antwerp and Brussels, Mechelen is known for its medieval architecture and scenic canals. If I had to describe Mechelen in three words, they would be authentic, charming and picturesque. Thanks to the many classified buildings, the city has an outspoken historical character. Interesting fact: since the last couple of years many hipster hotspots have been appearing

Martin’s Patershof is a former church transformed into a 4 stars luxury hotel in the heart of Mechelen, right in between Antwerp and Brussels. This Belgian hotel group accepted the major challenge to preserve the past and at the same time meet the expectations of today’s demanding travelers. And they succeeded. After an impressive metamorphosis, they now offer an out-of-the-ordinary stay in an exclusive historic setting. Gazing up at the church’s beautiful façade, I immediately notice the sound of clinking glasses inside. As I walk

Not “Mother of dragons”, but known as “City of dragons”, Ljubljana is protected by huge dragon statues on each side of the river that crosses the city. This bite-sized city with only 270K inhabitants is one of Europe’s smallest capitals and yet such an interesting discovery! In Slovenian, the word ‘Ljubljana’ means ‘beloved’. And this sums up how many Slovenians and visitors feel about this city. Dragon Bridge The main attraction in Ljubljana is the Dragon Bridge, adorned with four giant dragon statues. Built around 1900,

Visiting Slovenia is like stepping into a fairytale with medieval castles, cozy town squares and charming bell towers. Next to the heroic Predjama castle, Slovenia has even more mystery to offer! Piran and Bled are the two places where the country’s magic is captured. Piran is Slovenia’s cutest coast town and Bled consists of a stunning glacial lake and a medieval castle. Piran Piran, Slovenia’s main cost town is incredibly picturesque, situated on a narrow peninsula jutting out into the Adriatic. Slovenia’s Adriatic coast is much

With its 20 square kilometers and 2 million inhabitants, Slovenia remains often below the radar for tourists. Did you know that this small country has ski resorts, coastal towns and world-renowned caves? After my 4 days visit, I am truly convinced that Slovenia has something to offer to any type of traveller. On top of that, distances are so small that you can even combine hiking in the mountains with a sunny afternoon at the coast. According to an old Slovene tale, when the world

While discovering Slovenia’s mountains, wineries and coastline, I almost forgot that the country also houses the biggest cave systems in the world! Postojna Cave is the second-longest cave system in Slovenia (the longest is the Migovec System), but definitely the most visited one. Believe me, Postojna is not just a cave. You haven’t seen a cave like this one. No kidding here! In total, Postojna has 24 km of underground passages, galleries and magnificent halls to offer. The visit starts at the entrance station of

I can hear trees rustling and I feel the wind playing with my hair when climb the narrow cobbled road up to the gate. It’s a quiet (late) afternoon in June and most of the tourists and visitors already left. As I peer down at the Predjama village and its surroundings, I am in awe of the green colors, lightening up at every sunburst. Walking up the narrow bridge towards our guide, giant vertical rocks come closer and closer. My senses are just soaked

In between my trips, I spend a lot of time practicing several kinds of sports: from running to cycling and letting off steam on a cross trainer. That’s why I am a huge fan of the new Q Adapt headphone series of Libratone. The adjustable noise cancellation system makes this headphone an ideal companion during your work-out. Furthermore, the headphones are an absolute must-have if you are often in noisy environments such as cities or airplanes. As I am traveling often, I love using the

"Never work before breakfast. If you have to work before breakfast, get your breakfast first." I couldn't agree more with Josh Billings, the 19th century American humorist.
