“Look, the sun is shining! We must have a drink outside!” In Flanders they call it “een terrasje doen” when they go to a bar and sit outside. We must eat outside too. Study, work, read a book or simply sit under the gorgeous sun.
2. White wine
Back home we used to barbecue whenever we felt like it, usually on Sundays. Since I moved here I learned to associate (and appreciate) barbecues to sunny and warm days. It’s just so nice to be outside, drinking a cold beer and grilling.
4. Beer Festivals
Take a look at this blog post and learn all about the best beer festivals in Belgium this year.
Belgians love their bikes. I bike to work every day, through sun and rain (and often hail), but in spring and summer I see more and more cyclists on the streets and more and more Sunday bikers, as I call them. You know, those people in tight outfits and skinny bicycles.
It’s also time for cycling events, like the Ronde van Vlaanderen and the Tour de France. They watch that like Brazilians would watch a soccer final!
7. Ice-cream trucks
They bring joy and remind you that those dark cold days are over. Until next winter.
It’s time to get out, get some fresh air and shed the winter pounds.
Marathons, Fun Runs, cycling tours with a beer at the end, yoga at the park, it’s all happening, folks. Check your city schedule if you’d like to participate.
How about you? How are you enjoying the warmer days?
