Thank you for a great day

Time flies, especially when in the time span of 1 month you have survived your own wedding, packed up your whole apartment and put it in storage, prepared yourself for an 8-month travel, and spent three times 24 hours in a train in Russia. So this post comes a bit later than planned, but that doesn’t make it any less true.


This post is to say thank you to all of you for making our wedding a great party and an unforgettable day. It is also to say thank you to everyone who helped in any way, whether is was helping to set up everything on Friday, clean up on Sunday, make a paella or desert, take care of last minute decorations on the big day, or invaluable moral support throughout the whole experience. But most of all, it is to say thank you to these four amazing people below. Not only would we never have existed without you, it means the world to us that we can always count on you. It would have been impossible to organize this wedding without all of your help! So thank you for being our parents. We couldn’t have wished for better ones.




We did it!

We have only received a handful of pictures so far, so we will share all pictures at a later date, but we couldn’t wait to share these beautiful highlights of the photobooth. We definitely laughed a lot when looking at all the crazy pictures that were taken in the photobooth.

Pray to the weather gods

While predicting the weather is a tricky business in Belgium, there are already some weather forecasts from reliable sources available for the big day. (That also means the wedding is coming very very very close now, which is both exciting and slightly nerve-wracking!) So far, it seems that our big day will be cold and rainy. Like most Belgian summer days, according to Manolo.

Luckily, Belgium is not Sevilla, and weather predictions are often completely wrong. So we hope you will pray to the weather gods/light a candle/do a dance (whatever floats your boat) for good luck on our big day!

We know we will be refreshing the web page with the weather predictions like two maniacs until it makes some better predictions.

Locura de miel

As you all know, we are not only planning a wedding, we are also planning a crazy trip. So how is it going with that? As with this whole PhD-wedding-crazytrip experience, progress is slow but steady.

We started doing filling out pages and pages of paperwork, and succesfully obtained a visa for Mongolia. Now we only need a visa for Russia and China before we can leave Belgium. We have also booked our plane tickets to Saint Petersburg and have started booking some trains across Russia. We are leaving on the 14th of July! Finally, we have also bought half of all the stuff in the A.S. Adventures shop of Wavre. They probably know our names by now.
