Route 54, cycling on the abandoned train track

We all dream of sunny and exotic destinations. Those dreams make us blind for the beauty in our own country, but Belgium and the Netherlands have a lot to offer as well. On the first sunny Sunday of the year, my dad and I went cycling in our own region: from Waasland to Zeeland. CYCLING…

How to wash waterproof clothing

Your faithful waterproof clothing: rain pants, your daily raincoat, your dear 3-layer trekking coat and your skiing gear have two things in common: they are waterproof and they suffer from intensive use. If they are dirty or don’t smell very clean these pieces of clothing have to be washed. “Washing? Waterproof clothing can’t be washed?”…

Skiing in Belgium, a spontaneous adventure

Winter is in town. We got our skis out of the closet and decided, quite last minute, to go skiing in Belgium for a day. We drove to Ovifat for an entire day of snow fun. When you think of skiing, you think of a very long bus drive, kilometers of slopes, panoramic views of…

2017 Bucket List: Sports Edition

The beginning of the new year is a good moment to review your to-do’s and your bucket list. To be honest, I’ve never done that before… But better late than never, right? In 2016 I started inline skating as a new sport, and even though I’m not great at that yet, I’m already thinking of…

A reusable water bottle, a durable investment

Until about a year a go, I used to take a plastic bottle with me. The kind you buy in the super market, the kind you throw in the trash eventually. I used to refill those bottles a couple of times, but eventually they became kind of dirty after a while. Plastic is everything but…
