About Me

My photo
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!

Truly glorious! Your photos always leave me dazzled.

I voted for your pics. You're currently in first place, barely!

hip chick said...

Beautiful! I love the boats because I love the way little dingy's like that look. But, the dragonfly is great and so are the flowers.

Danifred said...

Absolutely gorgeous- so hard to decide on a favorite this week. I think it's the boats for me!

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

Lovely set. My favorite was Moi? The duck seemed to pose for you.

The colors and composition on these shots takes my breath away! I especially love the gleaming green on the mallard's head...

The Old Fart said...

Love your pictures, you have such a wonderful eye for capturing what you want to share. I love your castle, oh to be back East and be able to walk amongst the old building of Halifax.

thank you for sharing.,

Melli said...

Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous! Love the bug! And the baby duck! I couldn't get the ones at the zoo to sit still like that! Neither could their Mama!

Thom said...

How wonderful. These are so great. The mallard is awesome. They all are. I don't know how you do it but it's just beautiful :)

Christine said...

Did you go for a boat ride? My favorite this week is the baby duck. Who could resist all that cuteness!

Gattina said...

just beautiful !
you are right we are good publicity makers for north and south ! We should tell it to the man who never laughs (van Rompoy ?) or the minster of tourisme but there is again a problem as we have for everything at least 2 ministers, one for the south and one for the north maybe there is also one for the German part ??
I suggest we send Albert II an email or to Flipke ! I think we both do a great job, lol !

This months it's 50 (!!!) years that I live in Belgium !

Nessa said...

Thanks for taking us with you. Beautiful.

Moannie said...

I cannot pick out one picture from another, they are all beautiful. You are quite a find by David at authorblog who has made you one of his Posts of he Day.

Grace Albaugh said...

I came over from POTD. Your pictures are beautiful! I'll be back for more.

Elizabeth Bradley said...

I'm here thanks to Author's Blog and David McMahon. Glad he chose you, I did just experience Heaven in Belgium. Many shots caught my interest, I particularly liked the Robinson Caruso one, and the tree with that incredible bark.

Cheffie-Mom said...
