The last time I was in Belgium was waaay back in 2013 in my tour guiding days. This shot was surreptitiously taken in Brugges while slurping down Mussels in a hurry on an old point and shoot 😆📸 That’s why I’m so so excited to return this weekend to @visitmechelen and savour my time to explore for more than an hour! You can follow my stories all weekend as Stefan and I uncover the sights and more importantly the brunch spots and breweries of this gorgeous region 😊 I’m curious though, what do you think are some classic Belgian things to do and try? Would love your reccomendations!

Walking into the weekend like all my cliche Fall dreams are coming true! Gotta admit October is my favourite month of the year to be living in Vienna – the sunshine, fresh crisp air, the vineyard hikes, festivals and beautiful afternoons for exploring the city in muted light. It’s glorious and you have to visit to experience it for yourself! TELL ME: what cliche fall activities are you planning this weekend?
