Brussels

Last Saturday I went to Brussels with friends to visit a friend. It was Kingsday that day, which basically means people in The Netherlands dress in orange and get very drunk and annoying (or buy lots of crap at the many flea markets!). So it was nice to fled the country and go to our neighbours. We walked around for hooooours, saw a lot of things, drank some beer, ate some Belgian fries. It was nice! It was my first time in Brussel and I thought it was a nice city :) Very big and prettier than I expected. It was kinda annoying though that almost everyone speaks French (and not Dutch), which is very confusing. When I tried to order chips, it sounded so good in my head (I had been practicing while waiting in the long line, as it were apparently the best chips in Brussels!), it sounded totally ridiculous when I finally uttered the words. My French definitely needs some practice!

So, here are a few snapshots. Well, a few, quite a lot actually. I hope your internet doesn’t break down haha.

Tonight I just watched the sunset from my living room for about 10 minutes, while listening to the twittering birds, with the air smelling like summer & hope & new kinds of energy, feeling that nice warm breeze that exists only when the day was warm and the night is cooling down (I make no sense now, I realize that, ssht). It was a little moment of joy, of happiness! Do I sound like a total hippie right now? I definitely felt like one at that moment…

As of today I’m going to do the ’100 Days Of Happiness Challenge’. But I’m not going to share everything, or take pictures of everything. I’m just going to make a list of good things that have happened that day, just for myself. I might post a few things here every once in awhile, but not too much.

(I’m a little at loss with this blog. Should I write in Dutch or English? Should I write at all? Should I get a new layout? Do I actually have anything interesting to blog about? Probably not… mm.. Should I make it more personal and write about movies & other things I enjoy? Not sure yet…)

Oh Edinburgh, how I love you! I feel like these pictures don't do you any justice and our time together was way too short, but let's try and make a blog entry about you. Again: I only had my Olympus Pen with me with the 20mm f1.7 lens, which isn't very convenient for traveling. There's no zooming in or out, just one image. This can be quite good for portraits, for example, but it's not so good for holidays I think. Oh well, I tried my best! I also brought my Olympus Trip 35 (analog compact camera) with me, same story though. I just got them developed and the quality is a bit underwhelming, sadly. But will post those pictures soon :) Anyway, on to Edinburgh. I went there from London by train, which was the best option. Not only is it cheap (it costs me about 30 euros, advance booking is a must! I used the Eurail site.) but it's also a lot more comfortable than flying. It's a long ride, about 4,5 hours, but flying will probably cost as much time. You have to go from London to the airport by bus (to Stansted, for example, this is like an one hour ride), be there on time (at least an hour beforehand), lots of hassle with luggage and passport and shit and when you have arrived at Edinburgh airport, you still have to take the bus there to get to the centre of Edinburgh. In fact, the airport bus stops right next to the train station. So yeah, going by train was the most convenient. Edinburgh itself was even more beautiful than I remembered and it's wonderful to discover you still know the way to everything. Going to a city for the second time makes everything so much easier! I just walked around for a bit, went to a few art galleries that I didn't see last time, find a few new views, still climbed to Arthur's Seat (the weather was really good but there was SO much wind, it was quite alarming) and at one point I even climbed onto a cliff like freaking Spiderman (true story!) and at the last night I was so tired that I went to the cinema nearby my hotel and saw The Grand Budapest Hotel. After obsessively photographing it's posters in the tube in London, I felt like I had to see it. It was so good! After that I went for a little walk.. it's crazy how small Edinburgh is compared to London. And where are the people? London is a bit too overcrowded (am I getting old?!), where Edinburgh is calm and small. It felt like a good combination, my head could use some rest after 4 days of London :) I'm missing Edinburgh a wee bit already (see what I did there? I tried to be quirky and use some Scottish word in a post about a city in Scotland WOW, much amazing!). This blog is slowly turning into a personal travel blog, I realize. I find it hard to write anything interesting though, I mean, we all know you're here to look at the pictures ;) Even though I had a crappy camera with me, I still took thousands (well, okay, not literally) of pictures. So here's the first post of more to come... (also, after editing a few pictures I ran out of the RadLab trial, so they might look a bit differently edited. Some are just not that.. Rad *badoom tssh*)
