Update From The Wild West

Posted on November 9, 2015

Time for an update of my travel through Western Australia, the largest state in the country. Since I’ve travelled down from Darwin to Perth, I’ve driven between 4500 and 5000 km, which is about the same as driving from Brussels to Iran! I’ve seen the ocean and finally swam in it (in the Northern Territory this is not possible), I spotted Southern Right whales and Humpback whales in the wild, I climbed a mountain, celebrated my birthday in one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been, tasted world class wines, I can’t even count the amount of times that I’ve seen the landscape change, I’ve traveled around in a 4WD, a stationwagon and a van and I’ve decided that I’m not ready to leave this country in the near future. Currently I’m in Perth, one of the most remote cities in the world and I’m gearing up to head back into the outback. Perth is a great city, however I don’t feel like I have explored it to its full potential. Traveling through Australia, one of the necessities is having a car, which I don’t. But if all goes well, that changes in the next few days. I’m on the hunt to buy my very first car! Yes, you read it correctly, I have had my license for 10 years and never had a car of my own. Many Australians will have their mind blown by this statement. Just one of the cultural differences between Europeans and Australians. Continue Reading

Seeing Clear with Polette

Posted on August 14, 2015

I can’t believe how nice it is to actually see clear. See the thing is, I actually need prescription glasses or lenses and I never made the time to get them. This means that I’ve mist quite a few beautiful things in my life. As I was planning my long-term travel, being able to see was quite important (go figure, right!?). A little while ago I found the perfect prescription glasses but there was still a problem on sunny days. Therefore, I jumped at the opportunity when Polette approached me with the option of testing one of their prescription sunglasses. Continue Reading

Dress Code Festival Fashion

Posted on August 6, 2014

There are a few things in life that make my heart skip a beat. Music festivals are definitely one of those things. Anxiously I await the dates upon which sales start, I’m obsessively listening to the radio to hear the first names on the line-up and when I can’t make it to a certain festival, my heart dies a little bit. For me festivals revolve around the music, the atmosphere, the friends, the fashion and of course the dancing! We’re already well into the festival season and I already got the chance to go Couleur Café and Rock Werchter. Pukkelpop is coming up in little over a week and I can’t wait to choose what I’m going to pack and which bands I definitely have to see. Continue Reading

Festival Hopping at Couleur Café

Posted on July 18, 2014

During the weekends of Les Ardentes, Dour Festival and Tommorowland I’m usually in France just as this year. Festivals I would all love to visit but then again I don’t mind the view that I’m looking at right now. One of my bad habits is counting down to the next festival as soon as the most recent one finishes. Before the summer really started in Belgium and here in France it was time for Couleur Café (and Rock Werchter the weekend after). Zalando invited us to choose a festival outfit and join them to the festival. I knew immediately that I would wanted to wear the Bandit shorts from One Teaspoon. We got the full treatment with a ProNails manicure and professional hairstyling. We even got the chance to ride to the festival in this amazeballs vintage Volkswagen Samba bus. I never thought I would actually get the chance to ride in one! I have to admit that it felt a bit strange to dress up for a festival but I sure wouldn’t mind to have it more often. I would suggest joining me to Pukkelpop? Continue Reading
