Being born and raised in Aalst (Belgium), I really have to promote its ´world-famous’ carnival. Although not as famous as the carnival in Rio or Venice it still attracts around 90000 people to the parade on Sunday each year. If you are in Belgium around that time, you must come and celebrate carnival in Aalst. It is a special and fantastic experience.

Reykjavik was the start and the end of our road trip around Iceland. On our first day in Reykjavik, we did a free walking tour. It is the perfect way to explore all the important places in the city and learn more about it and Iceland in general. And we were very lucky with the weather: a beautiful sunny day.
Zion National Park is located in Utah and is dominated by Zion Canyon. We already visited this National Park twice, as it has so much to offer. You keep coming back to it. And we are not alone: it is one of the most popular parks in Utah. Zion National Park is most famous for The Narrows and Angels Landing.
Starting in Achouffe, you can do a beautiful 8km hike. It is a round trip that can be extended to around 12k.
In the beginning, you have to cross a little river but because it is not deep, this is fairly easy to do: take off your shoes and socks, roll up your pants and just go.
You follow the river constantly while walking in between the trees. At the end, there are some ups and downs but the most part is flat.
An excellent idea for enjoying the outdoors at the Belgian Coast is a visit to The Zwin, a nature Parc with a lot to offer. The Zwin dunes and polders are perfect for walking, cyclists, or horseback riding. Bird spotters are in the right place because of the thousands of birds that land at the Zwin to breed, hibernate or look for food. Especially the stork stand out when you enter Zwin Nature Parc.
