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.
I hope you people enjoyed your Tuesday as much as we did.
Have any of you celebrated Fat Tuesday? And if yes, what food did you eat?
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.
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:
Tonight, I will drive from Brussels to Ghent in order to see my girlfriend before I need to leave.
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.
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).
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?
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.
It’s official. I’m going to Switzerland for 1 week at the end of January. I’ve been waiting for this since 2011 since I went to visit my girlfriend in Raleigh, North Carolina, back in January 2012.
I have felt the call of the mountains for a couple of weeks now, and I can’t wait to get back to it: The snowy cliff tops, the cold wind, the blue skies and the delicious swiss food.
Also, I have been wanting to do a bigger movie project lately, and I think that this trip might just be what I need to make that desire happen. I plan on doing a short movie on the trip itself, as well as work on some time lapse photography and whatever else comes into my mind.
So I will make sure to keep you guys posted on that process and I will most certainly post a link to the project once it’s done.
Have any of you ever been to Switzerland? And if yes, where did you go and what can you remember from that trip?
