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!

I love Bruges.
I had a wonderful time there two years ago.
There were many great cathedrals.

Love the pictures. What a beautiful little place.

Caution Flag said...

Okay, it's time to get a map out so I can follow your travels. I love those canals and think I need to do some reading about them when I'm done with the map.

James said...

Wow! I can't wait! This place looks wonderful. Beautiful old buildings and plenty of reflections for me to photograph. :)

I always love canals around houses.
What a nice way to live.:) and then to have a small boat waiting for you is just like almost living the dream.
Very nice:)

Beautiful red ruby pictures - I would love to walk along that canal!

Carletta said...

Wonderful shots Jientje! Quaint was the word that readily came to mind.
Did you see Rapunzel at that tower? :)

Loree said...

I have to say again that Bruges is gorgeous. I am entranced by the third photo. Is that Rapunzel's tower?

Dianne said...

beautiful scenes!!
I love the canals

Linda Higgins said...

the colors of all the buildings is so beautiful and quaint. There is so much history in your town and city. It seems that in bigger cities every wonderful old thing gets torn down and replaced with 'new' stuff. Don't get me wrong, there is always beautiful architecture in new things but....I just miss seeing the "old" disappear. Wonderful photos!

Susanne said...

How beautiful. That tall column shaped building is so neat. Is that someone's house?

Kala said...

What a beautifully quaint place.

The Retired One said...
