Ghana is probably one of the mostly popular and touristy West African countries for travellers, next to Senegal and Gambia maybe. Although I haven’t checked what are the things to do there, but I heard from many people that Ghana is worth going.

In general, West Africa isn’t the most popular destination though, part of reason being the flight connections. Living in Europe makes it easy for me to fly there but I can see why many travellers from other continent or even many world travellers would exclude this part of the world from their world trip plan. Fair enough, lack of primary touristic product compared to the East African countries, poor transport conditions, plus the visa (which is an expensive pain) etc. So many reason to hold you back from visiting it.

Then why do I still want to go? After a few years of “checklist” kind of travelling in many countries, I finally get tired of it. So many landmarks, so many things to do, but what’s the meaning behind it? Taking some picture and Instagram/Steemit them, look how many places I’ve been, how amazing I am?

I just get tired of it. haha.

Don’t think I’ll make much plan for things to do in Cote d’ivoire and Ghana, just see where the bush taxi takes me.

OK, back to my topic, getting visa for Ghana in Brussels.

I know most people get visa while travelling in WAfrica, but since I have a lot of free time, I did it in Brussels to save some time, I only have 3 weeks, it’s like nothing really in WAfrica. But for sure I’ll re-visit it again, maybe during the Voodoo festival in Benin. Variation is always the inspiration, right?

Memories of Poland

I’ve been to Warsaw several times and really love the city.

This photo was taken last year around xmas time, it was super super cold and was snowy. Warsaw under snow was stunning.

Why can’t I pose normally? Lol

But seriously, don’t be scared of cold and snow, it can be beautiful haha!

Some Polish food. I love Polish dumplings, the ones without cheese. I remember the fish ones are good. My favorite “dumpling” is still the Georgian Khinkali with potato fillings, but Polish ones are great too.

I’ve never been to Krakow though, so I have no photo to share there. Will take probably many this time. Looking forward to it now.

Two more years. Two more beers!

Hey everyone! I’ll share some pictures of Bloc Party concert.

It was the first time I came to Forest National, one of the biggest concert halls in Belgium. Normally the bands I like play in smaller concert halls such as Ancienne Belgique.

The other day I uploaded a song This Modern Love on DTube already:


Here is another wonderful song, Two More Years! How much we loved this song!

Jazz night at L’Archiduc Brussels

Hey everyone. Happy Monday!

Today I’d like to recommend a nice bar called L’Archiduc in Brussels. The center of Brussels is extremely touristic nowadays, spotting a normal local café among all the touristic traps becomes difficult. Luckily Brussels is small and compact, just a few blocks away the Grand Place, you can already find some nice bars to hang out.

L’Archiduc often has live bands playing there and the atmosphere is always great. I highly recommend to check it out, if you ever Brussels. It’s very center located.

Jazz night

The Jazz Club was opened in 1937 and is decorated in the vintage art deco style.

Address: Rue Antoine Dansaert 6,1000 Bruxelles

今天我想介绍布鲁塞尔中心的一家爵士酒吧L’Archiduc,周末经常有乐队现场演出。

来过布鲁塞尔的应该都知道,大广场附近很游客化,没什么可玩的,还好布鲁塞尔本身很小,其实离大广场不远的几条街有很多不错的酒吧可以去。

这家古老的酒吧开于1937年,是典型的ArtDeco风格,应该挺好拍照的,但是我专心听音乐忘了多拍点照片。

介绍以后来比利时的玩可以去这里看看,非常中心,很好找,离大广场也不远!
