belgian houses


An egg problem


The house of Marie Querton, in Belgium.

Interior designer Marie Querton lives in this Belgian house, a modern architecture designed by Marc Corbiau who got inspired by modernist icons, such as Mies van der Rohe’s Pavillion and Le Corbusier’s Citè Radius: a building that is engaged in conversation with nature, thanks to a great transparency, to combine interiors and outdoor. The result is a stylish family house, immersed in greenery and featuring art and design icons.

The self proclaimed smallest house in old Brussels is not necessarily the most impressive one, I must say. It extends on top of what I thought it would be the smallest street in old Brussels - until I found another one just as narrow but with a nicer entrance. And there may be more like them, dark alleys taking you more often than not to a beer (noticed the arrow?)… it’s still Brussels after all. La Chouffe has just a hint too much sweetness to keep it away from my all-time favorites list. Only one small step away, because those aromas, those spices, those thick yeasts…


Bouillon :)
Bouillon is a small town in the south of Belgium which sits on both sides of the river Semois :) 

I have many nice childhood memories of walking along the river, going to the castle, buying groceries at the Pasquasy (pronounced  パスカシ :) (I’m not sure whether it’s still there (^-^;) or shopping for stuff in the shops along the river :D
The town is quite old too it was first mentioned in 988 and there is a nice museum about its history too :)

It has been a while since I went there since you need a car to get around there since there is no translation and no bus service worth mentioning (^-^;)
Also staying there is too expensive for a student like me (^-^;)

The town is rather calm and apart from looking nice and calm there isn’t too much too see :D
I just enjoy seeing the old Belgian houses, the landscape and the surrounding nature :3
South Belgiums landscape is beautiful and there are many nice path that are perfect for hiking :3
In some ways the landscape reminds me of Japan :D
Also the houses seem to sprout out of the hills and forests in a similar manner as they do in Japan :D

A wonderful thing to see is the fog rising from eh forests in the morning :)

I hope I can go to Belgium again at some point :)

I forged myself some tools this weekend and made rode my motorbike :)
This is basically all I did besides taking care of myself and stuff :D
I will return to Hamburg tomorrow :)

I hope everyone had a nice weekend as well :)

I wish everyone a great new week, with sweet dreams of nice childhood memories (^-^)/
