An amazing Saturday morning

I had an amazing Saturday morning visiting Bruges with a French group! Since the tour ended near the Beguinage I had plenty of time to take pictures of the city’s best sights. There was a good atmosphere in Bruges this morning and this pic reflects it!

Chocolate workshop

An activity that I really enjoyed this week. A chocolate workshop at The Belgian Chocolate Makers during which my group learned how to create the méndiants, melted chocolate studded with different toppings. They had a lot of fun and it was difficult for me to resist the chocolate temptation!

Nikki Maloof at Sablon district

During the last art galleries tour that I gave in the Sablon district in Brussels, I planned a stop at the gallery Sorry We Are Closed for my English-speaking clients. We admired the current exhibition “Gutted” by the American artist Nikki Maloof. We really loved her work. I particularly find the saturated Palette used by…

Every corner is worth a picture!

Yesterday I had the chance to spend an afternoon in Bruges with a nice group. It was a beautiful sunny day and we had so much fun! I love photo collages because it’s difficult to choose one picture from the ones I took…and every corner is worth a picture!

Memorable sunny days

It is really sunny here in Brussels and the last days were memorable! I traveled around Belgium with a nice family. We visited Brussels, Bruges and Ghent. We had lunch in Damme to avoid the crowd!

The Orient-Express at Gare du Midi

I admired the cars and their internal refined marquetry decorations. I have to admit…

In Waterloo

Last Friday I spent the day in the Walloon Brabant with an English-speaking group. In the afternoon we visited the Waterloo battlefield and followed a guided tour of the Lion’s Mound and the panorama. The Lion’s Mound was covered with a fresh blanket of snow and the bravest ones in the group climbed its 226…

René Magritte, Untitled

René Magritte, Untitled (The night), ca.1963. Today I gave a tour at the Magritte Museum and the teenagers in the group really appreciated this painting. I have to admit that it gives me a feeling of peace.

Guided tours at Train World

Last week I was very happy to give several guided tours in Frech at Train World. I also gave a guided tour in Italian organized by Guide Italiane in Belgio and it has been great to guide in my mother tongue. The Orient-Express exhibition will last until April 17 and I strongly recommend a visit!
