We’re a big group, about 30 people, the food is delicious, the alcohol is flowing in abundance… We could hear bursts of laughter in the room. The atmosphere is relaxed, we’re having a great time, and damn we eat so well! […]

2 days in Brussels

Brussels is the capital of Belgium, but it’s also called the European capital. Indeed, a lot of European institutions are in Brussels (European Parliament…). It’s nice to spend 2 days in Brussels.

How to haggle when traveling

I recently realized that I’m quite good when it comes to haggle when traveling. At least I’m better than other travelers when bargaining. As I was talking with fellow travelers, I realized I’m often the one who paid the least, either a taxi ride, a day trip, a souvenir… In fact, a lot of Westerners […]
