The sun has finally decided to show up! So we seized that moment to visit another of Tokyo’s parks where the Hanami is more than actively taking place: the Ueno Park. The festive mood was present with a crowd of Tokyoites picnicking along the alleys of the park. Many food stands offers dishes that are … Read more

The 3rd day was a rainy one, which implied being particularly strategic: the 3rd day was hence declared Shopping day. Those two neighboring neighborhoods are ones I know well, since I almost went nuts in their shops back in 2007. This year, my shopping fever was somewhat less intense (although…).

As I told some readers, we have organised the planning of our visits according to the weather. As it turns out, it was raining the second day, meaning we needed to find an indoor visit.

Delicious Ghent

Let’s wrap up our tour of Ghent with the food talk! As one of you said, belgian gastronomy ultimately comes down to the two best foods there can be: Fries and chocolate. Very true, but that’s not all there is to it. Indeed, during the weekend, I discovered a number of other delicious belgian specialties! … Read more
