Places to Visit »Snow and Ice Sculpture Festival

antwerp snow and ice sculpture festivalMy friends have had such exciting adventures across the globe. This week, I share Ashleigh's trip to Brussels and the amazing looking Snow and Ice Sculpture Festival:

“The theme was the life and works of Peter Paul Rubens. It was held in a huge refrigerated tent and it was c-o-l-d.It'sa weird and kind of rave-ish place to want to transport myself to, but the hot mug of Gl?hwein they gave you to keep warm as you meandered through frozen Bizarro art history made it a thoroughly lovely outing.”

This year's celebration dates are to be announced here.

Places to Visit »Th??tre Royal de Toone

Written by friend, Mike:

Perhaps its from my recent trip to Venice and my obsession with one craftsman's marionettes there (Roberto Comin), but right now, I'd really like to be in the “house of toone” in Belgium, drinking a beer and taking in a puppet show. The place is this really old puppet theater/bar (a concept I think is ingenious) in a small alleyway in the heart of Brussels. like many European bars, they also have an awesome cat that just walks around, and an amazing selection of beer. I was gonna paste a wikipedia link to it, but I just noticed the only one anyone has written is in french ( so i might have to go make the English entry myself.

I should note I took this above photo from a flickr stream of a user's 2008 trip to Belgium. Sadly I only took 3 photos in the place myself when I was there, so I must give credit where credit is due.
