Our mission is to get expats and Belgians alike to discover as much of Belgium as possible, so when we were asked to explore a corner of Brussels with a local, we jumped at the chance. Despite the chilly weather, we spent an interesting afternoon learning all about Molenbeek courtesy of the Brussels Greeters.
When I think about beer brewed by monks, I imagine dark, old buildings full of ancient brewing equipment, with a musty smell of old beer in the air. We recently travelled to Chimay to visit their brewery and to put my theory to the test. Boy, was I wrong!
This entry is part 2 of 9 in the series Euro Summer 2013.As much as we love exploring Europe’s beautiful cities, we also enjoy seeing the countryside of this diverse little continent. That’s why I jumped at the chance to take a tour of the Danube Bend, while on my recent trip to Budapest, Hungary.
This entry is part 13 of 24 in the series Portugal & Andalusia 2012.Gibraltar is weird. It’s owned by England, yet dangles off the end of Spain. You have to drive across an airport runway to get to it and its main feature is a giant rock riddled with caves and inhabited by monkeys. We couldn’t wait to visit it.
It’s not every night you eat a four-course meal while riding around Brussels on a tram, but maybe it should be.
With Europe in the middle of an economic crisis, many of us have had to cut back our entertainment budgets.While we all know it doesn’t cost anything to stroll through Grand Place or hang out with Mannekin Pis, it can be difficult to come up with activities, in the capital, that don’t cost an arm and a leg. But that doesn’t mean you have to sit at home. There are plenty of free things to do in Brussels and we’ve listed 10 of our favourites.
This entry is part 2 of 4 in the series Croatia and Bosnia.We spent a lovely day in Bosnia Herzegovina recently where we explored ruins, the countryside, a UNESCO site and, of course, food. It was a day we won’t soon forget. (If you missed part one of our day-trip read about Visiting Počitelj)

Normally the thought of eating in a moving vehicle conjures up images of congealed airline meals or hand-held drive-through snacks. Leave it to Brussels then to come up with a Michelin starred meal served while touring the city by tram. Welcome to the Tram Experience.
