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,a grandmothe and 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 view in Antwerp

There is a little hidden place in the heart of the city of Antwerp where it looks like time has stood still. It's the beguinage, and I love to come here and enjoy it's peace ...

This is a lovely shot, Jientje - perfectly done.

One of the things I love about Europe is the antiquity of places - ancient names and buildings so old they're irreplaceable - This shot reminds me of Oxford, England, in a way - the architecture is different, but yet, very much similar.

I didn't know that Antwerp had a beguinage.
