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!

Wish I had an impressive castle so close to visit!

Colleen said...

That last shot is my favorite! So pretty.

Rebecca said...

Amazing detail. I love the angle you shot the castle at in the first shot too.

I enjoyed the photos.

Leora said...

What a beautiful place. Love all the architectural details. The live flowers caught me by surprise; everything else has an ancient, no longer living sort of look.

Susanne said...

LOL. Looks like a beautiful old building.

Rob and Mandy said...

Great place, great photos

Oh my goodness what a lovely place to visit. Is it cold inside the walls of the castle? No wonder all the ladies had to dress the way they did! I like how the door mat was placed on the gravel...hmmm. LOL

I love castles - even though this one doesn't look like the traditional castle. I do like the small tower with pointy roof (I expect it has a name?) at the right of picture.
Lovely photos !

James said...

It looks like a wonderful place. I really like the bottom photo!

Eve said...

Beautiful doors. I sometimes wonder what it would be like to live in a place that has buildings that old. Most of Idaho has been settled for 125 years or less. Nothing around here more than 100 years old. I like your pictures of historical places.

Lew said...

Wonderful shots of the cstle! Looks like they did not want people climing in the windows.

Kala said...

Gorgeous old castle, wonderful shots!

Gattina said...

Didn't you visit the flower exposition there ? I wanted to go but I have a cold and am locked inside and feel lousy.

Christie, Describe Happy said...

Oh wow, that first door is too cool! The shape, the details, the color, the texture. One of my new favorites for sure!

If your work depends on it, learn to check just three times.

The ship owner could see that the captain had paid the on going rate
and the merchants were all given the same
opportunities to offer their services. Its weight is 122 grams
and casing measures 111 x 51 x 13.
