About Me

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!

Street Views in Provence, Le Barroux, the Castle




Over the years, on the many walks through small villages in Provence I took photos of street views. Some of the houses, windows and doors are beautifully decorated with flowers and plants, and I can never get past them without taking pictures.
Over the next couple of weeks, this is what I intend to share on Thursdays ....





Last week I showed you a street view from Le Barroux, and this week I'm taking you all the way to the top of this little sleepy village.






All the way up, overlooking the village is this huge twelfth century castle which was rebuilt in the 16th century and restored in 1960.

Your street views are always enjoyed, I like all the stone work of the buildings, streets and walls.

The perspective on these shots is great and give a wonderful feeling of being there with you.

Love the expression on the tabby's face. He has lot to smile about.

It is just so beautiful and reminds me a bit of San Gimignano in Italy. I loved it there. I think I would love Provence too.
