Budapest had been on our travel list for quite some time, though a part of me still believed there was a little too much fuss about this city. Let’s be honest, how could Budapest stand a chance next to Paris or London? Well, well, well. It was love at first sight, I tell you. Stunning architecture, splendid weather, delicious food and crazy nightlife were the … Continue reading Between Buda & Pest
Just like Picasso and his art, me and my closet already have been through a lot of different colour phases. Black everything, the pastel period or red rage: yes this ginger has really tried it all. There’s only one colour that keeps finding its way to my outfits, no matter what: blue. No wonder our latest trip to Budapest swept me off my feet. The city clearly has the … Continue reading Bluedapest
I can’t believe that just one year ago I was still studying like crazy for my exams, dreaming of economics and marketing, stressing about business law. It all seems so far away now that I can enjoy New Year’s Eve without thinking about anything else than friends and parties. I’m not the kind of person who has new goals every year.

Ever heard of selective memory? Well, it does exist and I don’t quite know if it’s a blessing or a curse when you choose a travel destination. Last year, we went on a backpacking trip in Thailand. In ginger language this means three weeks in a sauna (let’s understand each other, an amazing and breath-taking sauna!). Still, when we got back in Belgium, sweaty everything … Continue reading 10 points for Martinique
First of all, I am very glad to be back after almost 4 months of radio silence. Manon and I had planned many things for this blog except for the fact that we would both move in with our boy and live hundreds of kilometres apart from each other. I thought for a while that it would be the end of Les Rousses, but hey! I’m … Continue reading Good friday, bad friday..
Last week was a very short week in Belgium, which means I had a very long weekend! Who says weekend also says adventures and this time, the Spaceboy and I went to Groningen in the North of the Netherlands. Imagine a peaceful landscape with nothing else than small rivers, fields, sheep and the sea. Some of the villages only count a few houses and a … Continue reading Exploring Groningen
