Bamboo alley

Walking around Ha Noi old quarter, I found an interesting little street on my way finding some restaurant to have dinner.

Full of unfinished bamboo sticks, I guess in countries like Vietnam, bamboo can be made for many products.

Probably tourist girls in Vienamese traditional clothes.

Pancake lady

Lady stopped walking, sitting down and cook, because this man wanted to buy the pancake from her, he was talking to her while she’s walking then she stopped and started cooking on the street.

I wonder what he’s making but couldn’t communicate. He’s cool with me taking pictures, most Vietnamese people are cool with that in fact. But he wasn’t very happen when I took out my tripod taking selfies, because I stood too close to his bamboo, my bad.

I was wondering what those bamboos’ really for, then in another street, I saw a guy smoking with it.

Joy goes to Asia!

Hello, right now I’m sitting in the train to Dusseldorf airport. In fact, Brussels airport is just 30 minutes away from me but I have this impression that I barely uses BRU for depart lol.

Well, 3 hours train ride then 10 hour flight, one day long transfer in Beijing, then fly to Hanoi. What a hassle, but I guess I’m used to that amready.

That’s all my luggage, 7kg backpack one eco-bag, plus a bum bag. Can you travel lighter? Maybe. Because I packed quite a lot of stuff in the toiletry bag which can be much less, also a lot of clothes lol. Call me a packing expert then?

I’m a bit nervous, which is strange because I thought I’m an experienced traveller. I guess maybe because of the snatcher stories I heard about in VietNam and I’m taking pictures with phone and camera always, I’m a bit scared of such things happening, better watch out.

Anyways, I’m looking forward to the trip! It’s a long trip – for almost 3 months, so you can expect tons of photos and vlogs from me, I promise!

Stay tuned ^^

Throwback – Santorini memories


When you live in Europe long enough, you start to visit all these famous places, such as Santorini. The blue-domed churches have been the signature for the island and for Greece even, you see pictures of them in all the travel guide book for Greece.

I went there during the off-peak season, so you don’t see much tourists, only donkeys carrying stuff for the house owners to renovate the houses.

Nice and quiet but you can’t swim, in fact even the most southern part of Europe, summer time is rather short, how many months can you really swim in Santorini?

Photos aren’t of the best quality but that’s all I have at the moment, I hope to go back there enjoying the pool during the next crypto bull haha.

Belgian waffle truck

I live in Belgium, I like waffles.

We have so many different waffles, the soft squared shaped Brusselse waffle, Liege waffle, the one that is similar to bread dough, also sweeter and thicker. I prefer Brussels waffle better but on the street normally you find those sweeter one with different fruit and cream toppings.

Except those two famous waffles, I like those sold in the market and bakkeries. There is this cute waffle truck seeling fresh waffles of all flavors.

My favorite one is chocolate and salty peanuts.

❤️

You can buy a mixed bag to taste ^^

I think I got some with apple, cinnamons, chocolate and speculaas.

Have a good weekend!!
