I spent my adolescence, went to school and lost my virginity in Mechelen. That time, the city hosted many breweries. One of them, Lamot, left its heritage with a fysical urban landmark. The Lamot brewery and production centre were radically renovated between 2000 and 2005. The historical legacy of the site and building set the footprint for the ‘Lamot Conference- and Heritage Centre’, a bistro, a hotel, offices and lofts. The ‘Residentie Lamot‘ is a newly built residence (condo). This contemporary architecture has been succesfully integrated with monumental heritage and urban renewal.
During the time I worked in France, I lived in Paris for fifteen odd years. Hence, the many ‘wine ‘n dine‘ places in and around ‘the city of light’. I lived in the east, the south west and, above all, on the left bank in Saint Germain des Prés. Rue du Dragon is in the heart of the left bank. Victor Hugo lived here in 1821 at n°30.
During the time I worked in the UK, I lived in a place called Goldcliff near Newport, South Wales. It was a unique setting in a round house on the border of the Seawall. Spectacular views of the Newport Wetlands Reserve and the Bristol Channel. The Round House next to Hill Farm, owned by Martin, and The Fisheries, owned by Adrian, was well thought for its location. Here’s looking at you guys!

A part of Paris less visited by tourists, this neighborhood in the 13th Arrondissement is worth a visit. Until the mid-19th century, the area was an industrial and residential slum and one of the poorest parts of the city. Today, it has retained its village atmosphere and quiet charm.
