Frangipane pie with quince and red fruit

This weekend we celebrated my father’s birthday! Since I occasionally feel like baking or cooking I decided to make him a birthday pie. I was searching on the internet for something I hadn’t tried before and came upon the frangipane pie with quince! Quince is usually a less known fruit, I know it because we grow it in our garden. It is good for your digestion, so each year my father makes jam and syrup of them when it is the right time. Continue reading “Frangipane pie with quince and red fruit”

The Greatest Of These

A beautiful post by Julie from Emotionalpeace!

1 Corinthians 13:13 (NKJV) And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

This I Pray

     From beginning to end the Bible is about the love of God. God even showed Cain love after he killed his brother Abel. God was merciful to him by putting a mark on him to keep others from killing Cain. Jacob deceives his father and steals his brothers blessing, and God gives him a new name and he becomes Israel. Saul has Christians killed and on the road to Damascus he is blinded by God, and when God returns his sight he becomes Paul.

In the commandments God forbids adultery and murder but David has an affair with Bathsheba. When he learns that she is pregnant with his child he tries to cover up their affair. When he fails, he sends her husband out to be killed in battle. Does…

About exams

January in Belgium isn’t the most fun time for college students. Exams. A necessary thing to get that degree. It’s funny when I realize that just two months of my entire year are fully dedicated to it, yet these times seem very long, and my co-students and I like to complain about it. Basically it isn’t that bad, I know that, but right now I’m just caught up in the eat-sleep-study-waste time on the internet routine. Continue reading “About exams”

Chasing knights at t’Gravensteen in Ghent

Let me start by something remarkable: for the first time in my 22-years I managed to not only follow my schedule, but to actually be ahead of it. Yes, I have time left to study, something must be wrong. Anyways, in September I visited t’Gravensteen in Gent/Ghent, a city in Flanders, Belgium. Gent might probably be my favorite city in Belgium. There is just something about it. Together with a friend we decided to be tourists in our own country and explore ‘t Gravensteen, a medieval castle.

What’s in my backpack?

In between studying and the holidays, I felt it was time to write another post. In July I backpacked for three weeks in the USA. It was something I had never done before. The key for me was to pack light, very light. I can’t carry a lot of weight around for long, so I wanted to stay as mobile as possible.  Continue reading “What’s in my backpack?”

Merry Christmas everyone!

In January I have exams, so for the next weeks I won’t be very active on here! After my exams I’m heading to Spain for two weeks, so I will then update you with fresh stories! 🙂

I’m wishing everyone who has upcoming exams: lots of motivation, concentration and also a bit of luck.

For those who already had them: (lucky bastards) enjoy your well-deserved holidays.

And for everyone in general: Merry Christmas! Enjoy your food, drinks, family, friends, … enjoy everything!
