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!

Bike City

These bikes are for rent in Antwerp. It is part of public transport. There are 82 bike stations all over the city of Antwerp.
You can buy a day-, week- or year pass online. A day pass will cost you 3€. Biking is free the first half hour, 0.50 € the next half hour and you can use the bike for up to four hours in a row.





I think the bike stations are rather photogenic!

In Brussels it's the same now, only the bikes are yellow.

India needs something like this! people in cities have sadly switched to motorbikes and that really messes up the air!

Very very pretty:)

We has these in Rome for a short while. But the streets aren't made (aren't safe) for biking and the project was dropped after a short while.
