Roadtrip – first stop: CPH

/ Denmark, Traveling

I love Copenhagen - navyplum.com

FR: Il y a 2 semaines environ, nous avions planifié avec mon compagnon (en dernière minute), un petit roadtrip. Notre première étape était Copenhague, où nous devions passer quelques jours pour son boulot. Ensuite nous avons fait une boucle par Berlin avant de rentrer sur Bruxelles. Berlin, une ville que nous ne connaissions pas encore mais dont beaucoup parlent avec enthousiasme!
Pour commencer voici quelques photos de Copenhague. Vous constaterez, en les regardant que nous n’avons pas eu une météo extraordinaire pendant notre séjour, un ciel gris, quelques averses, pas mal de vent,… assez courant à vrai dire pour le Danemark. Mais rassurez-vous l’été est quand même arrivé jusque là, oui, JUSTE après notre départ! Ahah 😉 Bonne fin de journée à tous!

 

EN: Two weeks ago, my partner and I planned a little last minute roadtrip. Our first stop was Copenhagen where we had to spend a few days due to professional reasons.
Then we made a detour by Berlin before heading home. Berlin is a city we never visited before but we had previously heard a lot of good things about it.
To start, here are some pictures from Copenhagen. The weather during our stay was windy with gray sky and a few showers, quite commun for Denmark actually. But summer finally arrived… ONCE we left! Ahah 😉 Have a good day everyone!

Noir Jaune Rouge

/ Belgium, Traveling

Atomium - BELGIUM

 

I’m back in Belgium!

 

I’m settling in Brussels where things are (slowly but surely) starting to become a bit more organised. Some stuff such as administrative details can take more time but let’s be patient. 😉
As I said in my last post, I haven’t been living in Belgium for about 6-7 years, so quite a bit now. I’m trying to rediscover my country with new eyes, a bit like a tourist.
Isn’t it exciting playing the tourist in your own country?!

 

So today we decided to really play the game… We visited the Atomium, a huge symbol in the Brussels skyline. You probably already have seen its spherical architecture.
The Atomium was the main pavilion of the Expo 58. It symbolised peace among all the nations, faith in progress and an optimistic vision of the future of a modern, super-technological world for a better life for mankind.

 

After that we went to “Place Jourdan” in order to enjoy a nice cold beer and savour some real Belgian fries from the crowned best chip shop in the city – the Maison Antoine (since 1948). Yummy yummy!

 

I hope you’ll enjoy the pictures. Have a lovely weekend everyone!

Goodbye London ☓

/ London, Traveling

Union Jack

 

I’ve been living in London for the past year and a half  but now my time here is almost over.

 

My experience in this city had been pretty amazing! Especially my work experience. I had the chance to be part of very exciting projects within pretty skilled teams.

After my degree in fashion design, with the time I became a couturier, a costume maker, a seamstress, a sample machinist, an embroiderer. What I really enjoy is to create things with my hands and the perfection you can get in caring about details.
Working for luxury companies such as Alexander McQueen or Ralph and Russo was very stressful at times but so fascinating and rewarding in the end. I’ve learned so much, for example beading and embroidery techniques amongst other things.

 

Beyond that, I tried to experience London and surroundings as much as I could. But now it’s time to pack and say goodbye…

 

With my partner we’re moving back to Brussels (at least for six months, not sure yet beyond that). We haven’t been living in Belgium for about 6-7 years so we feel excited and a bit anxious at the same time. Exciting to daily enjoy our families and friends again but a bit anxious to have to readjust ourselves to the life in Belgium.

 

Let’s see what the future holds… 😉 Hopefully, I’ll find a bit more time to spend over here soon!

 

Here are a few pictures I took for the past year and a half
