Rome, forever city

I could talk about another fantastic orienteering weekend that happened in the first three days of November 2019 in Rome, but this was a weekend so much greater than that! Don’t get me wrong, the event itself was really fun, with great organizers, interesting courses and perfect locations for all three days. However, if you…

Airport life

When you get to fly quite a bit like me, airports naturally become a part of the journey and sometimes, depending on how soon you arrive at the airport or if you have a connecting flight (which is often my case), it tends to be a place where you spend a lot of time. Most…

A trip is a trip

Antwerp, a city with great vibes

The Antwerp Sprint Orienteering Meeting (ASOM for short) in 2017 was also my first City Race Euro Tour event. A lot of firsts, I know… Antwerp couldn’t have…

Checking out the best hotel deals

Traveling preparations can sometimes be a bit stressful. After deciding a place to go, taking the time to determine where to stay can be difficult if you don’t know what the offer is. Some people leave that work to a travel agency, as I often did in the past, to be honest. However, leaving to…
