- Antwerp, Belgium
- Welcome to the new, and improved version of Heaven in Belgium. I am Jientje. "Jientje", like the boys name Gene, followed by "chu"? "Gene-chu", that's how you pronounce my name. Yes!!!!That's it!! So now you know huh? I am an addicted blogger. I was born and raised and am still living in Belgium. Yeah, the "this-is- Tuesday-so-this-must-be-Brussels" kind of Belgium .. There, you see? Maybe you couldn't find it on the map, but at least I'm trying to change that a little by sharing lots of pictures. I really love to cook and create new things, like this blog for instance. I am a mother, not a grandmother,I don't know if I'll ever be, but I'll let you know in due time! Oh and um ... I am a wife too! They say I'm a traveler, and a photographer. Well that's just what they say, I love to make pictures, but I am far from professional ... If my English is not perfect, that would be because it's my second language. I do hope you'll forgive me any possible misspellings or strange vocabulary ... Now, as a result of all of the above, I get way too little sleep and my days are always much too short!
Heaven is in Belgium

Weekly Winners, Bruges ... Through my Eyes
She wants me to show you what this beautiful town looks like seen through my eyes.
I guess she has a point there.
After all, swans like me know their way around Bruges.
I think Bruges is the prettiest village in the whole world.
Hey, you don't have to believe me. After all, I'm only a swan.
But I live here, and I love my city.
I mean, look at that architecture.
I LOVE the old houses with their crow step gables. They feel so much like home.
There are umbrellas in case it might rain. After all, this is Belgium.
Hop on the boat, and I'll take you places, okay?
I know my way around the canals.
It's much like your streets, only on water. Right?
You folks of course need bridges to cross the water.
That's why Bruges has so many of them.
If I'm not mistaken, I think this is the oldest one.
But hey, names places dates ... I'm only a swan, okay?
There are always people watching us.
Hmmm, I think I like this.
But hey? We look like a fairy tale, don't we?
Come on, follow me.
There's still one place I want to show to you.
A very special place.
The place with the daffodils.
Breathtaking, isn't it?
There. I hope you enjoyed this little tour.
I know I did.
But I'm rather in a hurry.
I need to get back to my home now.
It's Spring you see. I still got a couple of things to take care of...
