i’m not gonna lie – i do sometimes worry about how a baby is going to affect my wanderlust and travel-obsessed life. i’m sure i won’t mind staying a little closer to home the first few weeks, but then what? as if the universe somehow felt my panic, it responded by reassuring me – travel is always going to be a part of who i am and what i do. in december of last year i had a couple of meetings that ensured my enduring professional interest in countries and cities far far away. my collaboration with belgian travel company CONNECTIONS was renewed and is taking on increasingly exciting dimensions which i’m absolutely thrilled about. and secondly, as i already alluded to ON INSTAGRAM, i started a new and very cool collaboration with american travel platform CNTRAVELER.COM. from now on i’ll be one of their regular travel contributors – you can check out the articles i already wrote for them right HERE.

and when professional activities aren’t enough to satisfy my hunger for foreign inspiration, i’ll always have REMOTE, the wonderful book written by my colleague bloggers, writers, photographers and journalists debbie pappyn and david de vleesschauwer of CLASSE TOURISTE. they published their first travel-inspired tome with the same publishing company of my own firstborn book, LANNOO. and ladies and gentlemen, it’s a beauty. heavily inspired by the class and style of my favorite magazine monocle, it is both an object and a book. i love it just as much when it’s lying on the couch or kitchen table, as when i’m flipping through it, admiring the high-quality photos and reading the duo’s personal stories about visiting the most remote places in the world.

i am so in love with these photos by WARD ROBERTS, i can’t even begin to describe how they make me feel. the geometrics make my ocd heart beat just a little bit faster, the muted pastel colors are perfection, and the emptiness of the courts makes my imagination run wild. the sight of these images is unleashing this sense of wanderlust in me, but also some form of creativity that i find hard to put my finger on. like i don’t know what to do with it yet, but i’m very sure i have to do something. do you ever get that feeling? it’s the best and the worst all in one.
