Day trip to Delft

Hey everyone, I know I haven’t posted anything in a while but I’m back and this is what I’ve been up to.

On Monday April 14th my girlfriend and I took a quick trip to the city of Delft in the Netherlands.
We had a case of cabin fever and now seemed like the perfect opportunity to go have an adventure.

Warm Ghent Afternoons

Yesterday was a beautiful day. The sun was shining, the sky was blue, and the temperature
was just high enough so that it was comfortable enough to walk around in light clothing.

We found this little ball of fluff just chilling on a wall.

In case you didn’t know, Ghent is filled with adorable cats randomly sitting on walls or
hairdresser’s closets.

Have you people been able to enjoy some warm sunny days lately?

I wish you all an awesome Sunday and
Have a nice one.

Fat Tuesday

It had been a while since I had had american cupcakes. Over the week-end, my girlfriend Kristine and I went to a little store called “Little Britain” in Luxembourg in order to find some Betty Crocker cake mix and get our preparations going for fat tuesday.

American Idioms

During my 2 year relationship with my girlfriend, I have learnt some very interesting sayings.
Here’s a quick taste:

  1. She’s not the sharpest tool in the shed 
  2. He’s not the brightest crayon in the box
  3. You two are dumber than a bag of hammers
  4. Bless your heart (which in the South actually means: “You’re an idiot”) 
  5. That dress is ugly as sin
  6. Up yours (personal favorite) 
  7. Let’s shake the dust off our feet 
  8. Fat kid at heart 

I just wanted to thank you darling for this amazing insight you have given me in the wonders of the american-english language. 

Wish you all a good start into the new week. 
Have a nice one.

Back to Business

I went to Switzerland at end of January to enjoy the ski slopes with my family.
My days mostly consisted of snowboarding, going to the sauna, working out on various occasions as well as eating…a lot of eating.
Unfortunately, when I came back to Brussels on February 3rd, it was rather hard for me to get out of that comfort zone that I had fallen into while on vacation.
Don’t get me wrong, it is great as well as very important to take some time off in order to relax.
But the transition from holiday to working is usually a rather slow one for me.

However, the last couple of days I have felt the will to get shit done grow inside me again and so this means: Back to Business!!!

Over Valentine’s Day (or the NBA All Star Game week-end for the more sport enthusiasts among you), I made a short movie in Ghent with my girlfriend.
Go ahead and check it out here.
Furthermore, it would really help me out if you shared and liked my video as well as subscribed to my channel if you want to see my future work.

I wish all of you a great start into the new week.
Have a nice one.

Travel Plan

Today is Friday the 24th of January 2014 and on Sunday the 26th I’ll be leaving for Switzerland.
The plan for the three next days is as follows:

  1. Tonight, I will drive from Brussels to Ghent in order to see my girlfriend before I need to leave.
  2. On Saturday morning, I will need to drive from Ghent to Luxembourg to grab the rest of my gear as well as my holiday essentials.
  3. On the same day, I will have to drive back to Brussels in order to catch the train, that leaves on Sunday evening, which will take me from Brussels to Cologne (Germany).
  4. At midnight on Sunday, I will finally take the night train that will take me from Cologne (Germany) to Zürich (Switzerland) where I will meet up with my sister. From there we will make our way to St.Moritz, which is the end destination.

It’s been quiet a while since I’ve been in Switzerland for the last time, and I am looking forward to being in the mountains, enjoying the sun and snow with my family and local friends.

Have any of you ever been to Switzerland? And if yes, where? And what is your fondest memory of that place?

About Movie Making

In the course of 2013 I discovered this guy Casey Neistat, a film maker who lives in NYC.
His youtube channel randomly showed up on my feed and I just wanted to see what it was about.
I find it hard to describe the style of his videos but there’s something that makes it look handmade, fun and easy. You can check out his youtube videos to get a better idea of what I’m talking about.

Film making often sounds like that huge scary thing where you need to invest a lot of money, find actors, directors, camera men as well as a big production company. But Mr.Neistat made me understand that you need to “work with your limitations”: You only need a recording device and an idea to make it happen.
I started to become very interested by the way he was telling his stories and by the filming process itself, so I thought I’d give it a go and I have, since October, created a couple of projects of my own. The first one took place in Ghent (Belgium) and the second one in Luxembourg.

i’ve always wanted to do something creative, something different and making movies gives me the opportunity to discover those areas.
I just wanted to give you guys an insight on this as well as reach out to people who might be interested in working with in any way. I’m always looking for license free music as well as someone who might be able to create a design for a watermark for me. I know that there’s a lot of people with great talents and public exposure might help them to “get out there”.

So if you are interested let me know in the comments and maybe we’ll be able to make something happen.

Finally I would like to say that one shouldn’t be afraid to do something new, to step out of your comfort zone and do that thing you’ve always wanted to do.
Life is short and time flies by. ENJOY IT.

Have a nice one
