Flying Aegean Brussels – Strasbourg – Athens

In the final days of 2018 my friend Michel asked me whether I wouldn’t want to join him on a mileage run in January, he needed to fly four flights on Aegean Airlines to keep his Star Alliance Gold Status. As I had the time and never flew them before I decided to tag along.

Delos, the lost island

During my 2018 Mediterranean Cruise we called at Mykonos, from Mykonos it was only a small boat trip over the rough seas to the nearby island of Delos, while it currently is uninhabited (except for some archaeologists and a bunch of cats) it used to be one of the biggest and most important cities and…

Crossing Silesia by train

After our stay at the Holiday Inn Dresden and exploring the city of Dresden, it was time to continue our trip eastwards to Krakow in Poland. The fastest routes either go via Warsaw or Prague, but we decided on travelling on the classic route over Gorlitz and Wroclaw.

From Antwerp to Dresden by train

In May Ivan and I undertook another epic rail journey to Poland and Czechia in Eastern Europe. The first leg of this journey took us from our hometown of Antwerp towards the German city of Dresden.

An airline meal for the holidays

Airline meals usually get the reputation of being boring and uninspirational, just like the small and dry sandwiches airlines like Lufthansa and Air Serbia serve. To counter this prejudice United Airlines decided to release a cookbook highlighting the different types of delicious meals they serve in their business class cabin, all created with the help…
