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!

Weekly Winners, the Chateau



Weekly Winners is hosted by Lotus, AKA Sarcastic Mom at I am Lotus.
It's easy, grab your camera, post some of your favorite photos of the week that has past and join the fun!


My favorite photos this week are from the Chateau Marnix de Sainte Aldegonde in Bornem.
It looks like a castle from a fairy tale, and is completely furnished and decorated inside, as the owners still live in it. Unfortunately, we were not allowed to take photos inside, but the beautiful views of the castle and the river Schelde where it is situated made me glad I did bring my camera!


This is the view from the backside of the castle.

That is a gorgeous castle. I'm stunned that it's still a private residence.

Couldn't begin to imagine the experience or expense of living in such an enormous home, but it would be wonderful to explore.

Wow, that is an enormous castle. It kind of reminds me of a place near me that is no more. It was magnificent, but it was destroyed by the wrecking ball because there was no one with the funds or interest to purchase it and maintain it. Very sad when things of beauty are destroyed.
