Looking for a last minute tip on how to spend your weekend? We’ve got an idea for you: #MODEinOOSTENDE. This weekend (17/09 & 18/09) #MODEinOOSTENDE is back for its 3rd edition. It’s organised by Belmodo and Tourism Oostende to highlight some of the city’s most fun hotspots.   The entire weekend is dedicated to fashion and we couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it! During this weekend you will be pampered at the participating stores with fashion advise, fashion shows and fabulous drinks. Tired from all the shopping?

Summer in Berlin

  Citytrips are always a good idea. Not only for discovering new places but also to clear your head. Two weeks ago I took a flight together with one of our best friends Anne to Berlin (yes again). Last time when I was given a ticket to Berlin as a present I really lost my heart there. Now I was ready for a little bit of Summer in Berlin.   Hackesche Höfe   Because Anne had never been to Berlin we needed to see the well known touristic spots, like the Brandenburger Tor, the Berlin Wall, the Holocaust monument and the Berliner Dom. They were as pretty as I remembered. The fun thing about being in a city you’ve been before is that you can discover more spots which aren’t touristic. So don’t hesitate to visit a city twice.

Berlin

This year I got a citytrip as a graduation gift from my parents. It was such a hard decision to choose where to go to. So many places, so little time… I’ve heard a lot of fuzz about Berlin, that it’s an amazing city and a MUST SEE to discover! So the decision was made, Off to Berlin! This city trip was intended to be a ‘mother – daughter’ getaway, but we doubled the trouble with another ‘mom-daughter- duo. The first thing that caught my eye in this city were the amazing graffiti paintings. On every corner and almost every wall you could find (properly done) graffiti. This street art is characteristic for Berlin and it gives the city a very urban and cool vibe. If you’re in for a day of casual shopping you should visit Alexanderplatz, besides the stores you can find a few touristic attractions and some fun bars! Of course we also went shopping, girls will be girls… The second day we discovered Berlin on bike!  It was a great experience to discover the city in a fast …
