    A weekend away in The Veluwe (The Netherlands).

    These last weeks have been very busy and stressful for me. For a teacher, the end of May is a period of making new exams, correcting lots of tests and assignments and reading your students’ theses. This means working long nights, all work and no play. And this for 3-4 weeks. Now that this period has come to an end, things are finally slowing down again. But we really needed to get away for a few days and have some family quality time. A few days ago, Annick was searching the internet for cycling trips with a parent-kid tandem bike. It’s an activity that’s on her personal bucket list and Febe has also been asking about it for…

    The Dead Sea versus the Red Sea

    The Dead Sea is situated 417 m below sealevel.  While the political climate of Israel makes it a less obvious destination, I can assure you that you will want to go and explore this beautiful country when you’ve seen our blogposts about it. I explored Israel back in 2007. I covered quite a few sights of the country: Tel Aviv & Jaffa, Jerusalem, Caesarea, Akko & the Baha’ï temple, Lake Galilea, Rosh Haniqra and the Dead & Red Sea. I’ll take you through all these sites in the next few blogposts. Today, we’ll start with some water adventures: floating in the Dead Sea and snorkeling in the Red Sea. The Dead…

    What to do in Amsterdam

    A lovely tree in Vondelpark Amsterdam is a city with many sights. Annick has spent a couple of weeks there in total: some exploring on her own, others with work, tagging along 80 15 to 16 year old kids. We also took Febe to Amsterdam when she was only two, proving citytrips and (small) children go well. You can read all about that here! When you are visiting Amsterdam, what should you do? Amsterdam in a day Essential to see Amsterdam in a day is to walk around the canals, who are declared Unesco World Heritage. You can start from the Central Station (which is probably where you will arrive…
