Unfortunately last year, in mid-August 2020, this very special event was canceled. From the 13th of August to the 16th, the Grand Palace in Belgium hosts, every two years, a carpet filled with begonias. In 2018 as the picture illustrates, the theme of the flower carpet was Mexico. It takes an impressive 1 million begonias and 140 volunteers to create a magnificent centerpiece 77 meters long and 24 meters large. Normally, thousands of people from all over Europe come to get to glimpse at the flowery marvel. Let’s hope that this will continue in the near future.

Iceland, famous for its glaciers, the Northern Lights, and frankly sub-freezing temperatures. However, what gets left out a lot of the time, is its nature without the above mentioned. Iceland is terrific for those wishing to experience the country with a pair of hiking boots getting to climb mountains and having a stroll by the water. And while doing so, it creates a sense of liberation almost feeling alone. The area isn’t that habited and thus making you enjoy nature at its purest without the interruption of others.
