Seeing the family in Germany

This last weekend, R and I took some much needed time to visit some of the family in nearby Germany.  We should have taken this trip much sooner.  It was really great visiting, getting to see M&J and the kids.

29 in Maastricht

I turned 29 the other day, and decided to spend it in The Netherlands touring around Maastricht and a local brewery.  R and I had an awesome day, the weather was perfect and it was really a great way to spend the day.  I also reached an important milestone in my weightlifting this same morning (225 squat), so I was happy all day about accomplishing that lol…. Overall, a great start to the last year of my 20’s (a bit creepy to say that).  I couldn’t be happier with the way our life is going together.

Hola Barcelona

What a dream this last trip was.  We spent just four days in Barcelona, and it went by way to fast.  We’d been suffering from basically nine months of winter in Belgium and for our own health and life we had to get outta there!  There was no better cure than a Vitamin D rush in Barcelona.

The Opera in Baden-Baden

Just got back from an amazing road trip that we had waited weeks for.  Belgium was really starting to wear on us, and we had plenty of perfect excuses to leave town: traveling to Baden-Baden, seeing our favorite opera singer, and getting out of the city.

A BEER POST!!  Finally!!

Sticking to the blog’s intended theme of travel and beer… we made a short trip yesterday to the Westmalle Trappist Abbey near Antwerp to check out the countryside and sample some of their famous beer.  It was a chill trip for a Saturday…

Snowed in…

Here’s some photos of around our apartment, here in Brussels.  We were thinking of a road trip until the snow hit… so we ended up watching a lot of zombie movies, taking turns scarin the crap out of each other 🙂  Oh, and we made a cheesecake!!!

Bringing on the New Year in Paris

So as if it wasn’t enough that we decided to go to Amsterdam for Christmas, we spent our New Year’s together in Paris!  Actually, we’ve been talking about making this trip for over a year now.

We took some extra time and spent three days in Paris, arriving a couple days ahead of 2013 to be able to explore the city a bit.  Three days is definitely not enough to be able to see Paris though… no way you can get it all in.

The city is incredible.  That’s basically it!  haha… not much of a description I could offer in words, but the photos hopefully do it some justice.

XMAS in AMDAM

R and I just spent Christmas together in Amsterdam, The Netherlands- which was a trip totally taken on a whim.  I like to joke with people: the best part about living in Brussels is being able to travel OUT of it, and so that’s what we decided to do this year for Christmas.
