Kbecq Profile

We are a couple living in Brussels and love to travel.

Although we do not select our travel destination based on the WHS list, we find the list a good guide to discover a country's most interesting (and sometimes otherwise overlooked) sites.

Kondoa 10-Nov-18

Kondoa by Kbecq

We visited the Kondoa rock art site from Arusha with a rented car. The archaeological museum where guides to visit the site(s) can be found is actually in Kolo, a little village 25 kilometres on the main road before you reach Kondoa. The whole stretch Arusha – Kolo is in very good condition and took us about 3.5 hours.

Kilimanjaro National Park 15-Oct-18

Kilimanjaro National Park by Kbecq

We climbed Mount Kilimanjaro end of September using the Machame route (six days, five days up and one day down).

The first day – starting at the Machame gate (1.600m) to Machame camp (almost 3.000m) – is a 10km walk through tropical forest where some monkeys can be spotted.

Day two is short with only 5km but also steep since it ends at Shira camp at 3.800m. Right from the start the forest changes to heathland/moorland.

Wadden Sea 02-Jan-18

Wadden Sea by Kbecq

A couple of years ago we visited the German part of the Wadden Sea WHS with stops in Dorum (where you can have a look inside the Obereversand lighthouse) and Dornum (where you can make a walk along the Wadden Sea following the Heller path).

Painted Churches in the Troödos Region 23-Apr-17

Painted Churches in the Troödos Region by Kbecq

Preparing for our trip to Cyprus, we noticed that very little practical information (opening hours, ...) can be found about the painted churches, so maybe the below is useful for future visitors. Note that we visited all 10 churches mid March, so potentially the opening hours may be different in other months/seasons.

Salzburg 21-Jan-17

Salzburg by Kbecq

We visited Salzburg at the end of December, hoping for snow. While this was not the case, Salzburg was still an enjoyable and beautiful city with a cosy Christmas atmosphere.
