When meeting up with friends, we always go to diner. Normally, we try to go to a different restaurant every time. Except this one; when we are meeting in Sint-Niklaas, we always go to Bizzy Beloy because of the great service and the good food.
A lot of people say it is impossible to have good (and healthy) food in the US. They say you only can get fast food like burgers and pizza. During our trip (and previous trips to the US), we discovered that you can get really good food, sometimes by doing some research, like using Tripadvisor or yelp for example. In the small towns, the local diner always has a big variety of choices for not only dinner, but also lunch and especially breakfast. Also in the supermarket, you have more choices for healthy and adapted food then we have in Belgium.
When we were interviewed at the airport in Amsterdam about our trip to the US, we got the question why Des Moines? Why? Well, we were invited to celebrate the wedding of friends. It was a very nice and lovely experience to be part of. We had a very good time in Des Moines and had the chance to catch up with old friends.
In about one week, we will leave for our little road trip in the US. We will start our journey in Des Moines, Iowa and through Yellowstone and Grand Teton we will drive to Salt Lake City.
My last business trip took me to South-Korea. A business trip is still exciting for me, and this one especially because it was the first time for me to go to Asia. After a 10h flight to Seoul, the business partner was waiting for me at the airport. From there we took the KTX train to Gwangju where I would be staying.
If you are near Aalst and you want some really good Belgian food, you have to go to Afspanning De Jaeger. This restaurants has a certain theme: the interior is full of statues, old pictures that gives it a warm feeling. In the summer, there is a fantastic outside place where you can enjoy your diner.
