Sometimes, when I’m lying in bed trying to sleep, the most amazing and dreamy ideas come to mind. For example for a new blog post or for a project I’ve been working on. But turning on the lights and writing it down feels like a real chore and I am already in this dreamy state that I really don’t feel like letting go of.

Mechelen in pictures

Mechelen had been on both of our lists for a while. We read about it and it made us believe it’s worth visiting. In 2016 we discovered why smaller cities can be really great for a weekend trip: there’s no rushing, you do not need to use public transportation and when you leave you actually have the feeling you got to know the city a bit.
