Antwerpen Travel Diary Day 3

So here is Day 3!

Started the Day with a good breakfast @Charlies and went to the Foto Museum afterwards. They had two really nice exhibtions. The older pictures you see are from Herman Selleslags. The more modern pictures were from Alec Soth.
Unfortunately the fashion museum was closed since monday, so we should have gone on sunday. A perfect excuse to visit Antwerp sometime in the future again!
Checked in at Dries van Noten’s awesome flagship store.

Went to the Ruben’s house aftwerwards for some of his art and to experience the way he lived.
Little tattoo session for me after we were done. Still very rainy on the third day so we treated ourselves with some Simmentaler tomahawk steak @meatandeat.

Antwerpen Travel Diary Day 2

Solid 10km of walking on Day 2. Rainy tho. But who cares, right? Went to a little Banksy exhibition wich was curated by Steve Lazarides. Which was ok, but kinda meh for 20€ entry! It kinda felt wrong because Banksy didn’t agreed to show these old prints he gave to Steve for 25GBP each. It was a money making machine in the name of Banksy, for Steve. Cheap Truckercaps in the little merchandise store and stuff. But some unseen stuff which I liked.

Went to the Frites Atelier afterwards. Unreal stuff. They are pretty new in Antwerp, but the Amsterdam store is well known. The truffle mayonnaise is pure gold. Couple of beers afterwards at the infamous “Den Engel”. Which is like a little time capsule inside the city centre.

Antwerpen Travel Diary Day 1

Here we go again. This time, I’m posting this after the vacation. Forgot the Macbook tbh. But also it was kinda nice to just shoot pictures the whole day and dont have to edit and post them right away.

But here we are. Had an awesome time!
Day 2 will be up tomorrow evening. Stay tuned!


Arrived on Sunday morning. Went straight from the hotel to the flea market. Strolled through the city. Had some “All you can eat” Ribs at Amadeus which was incredible. Ate 4 racks. Regrets came later.
