Going Out Pop In

Sometimes you’ve just got to hang out with the guys. And when you do, there better be some beer and rock music involved. So that’s exactly what Romain, Rogier and I did. We went to Pop In, a bar at 105 Rue Amelot, 75011 Paris, where they have great Hoegaarden beer. In the basement there was a concert … Continue reading

Love Le Louvre

After a month of fashion, going out and seeing friends, I really felt the urge to do something cultural. Accompanied my my camera and no one else I went to Musée du Louvre to watch my favourite sculptures: the Nike of Samothrace and Amor & Psyche. (Up: Amor & Psyche by Antonio Canova) I filmed … Continue reading

1 month in Paris: unseen pictures

I’m proud to announce that it has been one month since I left Antwerp, Belgium and came to Paris, France. In this time I’ve made some pictures that I like, but haven’t quite fit into a blog post. I think this is the perfect opportunity to share them. Up: The Eiffel Tower photographed from Palais … Continue reading

Strutting at Night

The perfect thing to do at night in Paris, is to strut and that was exactly what Aïcha, Laura, Charlotte and I did a few nights ago. We had dinner at an all-you-can-eat chinese restaurant at Gare de L’Est, bought a bottle of wine and strutted from Tour Montparnasse to the Elysée.

Stupid grévistes.

Nothing says more ‘Paris’, perhaps besides the Eiffel Tower, than striking. Normally my good friend Sammy-Jo, who’s living in Reims, would have come to Paris, but because of the strike – or in French “La Grève”- she couldn’t make it. So I wanted to go to Reims myself and get a free tour at Veuve … Continue reading

Dinner at La Comète

A friend of mine called Gert, who went to Paris a year ago, gave me this amazing Moleskine guide with magnifiscent addresses. So when Charlotte, the girlfriend of my cousin, came to town and stayed at my friend’s Laura, we just had to have dinner at La Comète (29, Rue du Faubourg Montmartre, 75002 Paris). … Continue reading

My first date in Paris

Last Thursday I had my very first date in Paris. I went to the movies with Stéphane, the guy I met the first time I went to Le Baron. We went to see the new Gregg Araki movie ‘Kaboom’. The movie was completely bonkers. It was just sex, drugs and the supernatural. Actually, I quite … Continue reading

Concert at Le Baron

Aïcha Condé and I went to Le Baron two days ago. There was a concert of an indie band for a select crowd. Aïcha didn’t like the music at all. I thought it was okay. Besides the band, there was a transgender woman looking like a Parisian version of Amanda Lepore accompanied by a transvestite … Continue reading

My Mother’s Birthday in Paris

Last weekend was my mother’s birthday and she came to Paris to celebrate it. I had bought her some nice Berko cupcakes. In the afternoon we went shopping on the Champs Elysées. Since I’m not going to see her on my birthday in November, she already bought me two beautiful sweaters. We had dinner at … Continue reading

Pizza Gossip Girl

I caught up with my fellow Belgian Erasmus friend Laura last Friday to have dinner and go to the movie theatre. We found a nice place in Rue Montorgueil where you can order delicious pizza slices with a wide range of toppings for only €4/piece. My toppings were shrimp and garlic. We also had red wine in … Continue reading
