Corona measures

We always inform trip participants beforehand about the updated agenda and other things that make the day more enjoyable for everyone. Needless to say that due to the current corona situation we also inform everyone about the measures we put in place together with our travel partners and welcoming destinations.   We travel only if allowed A total no-brainer, but the most important rule is of ...

Trip review: Stargazing

On Saturday evening 15 August a group of expats gathered hundreds of free wishes during our annual stargazing trip to the dark Ardennes. Every year we visit the Brussels Planetarium, followed by a visit to the observatory in Grimbergen. That local event is great to learn about the stars and still be able to see some deep celestial objects. However, Brussels is not the most optimal places for some ...

While in Brussels

So now and then I am hired to meet with a high-level incoming expat manager to talk about “daily expat life in Brussels”. This service comes as part of their transition package organised by their company or organisation, which also involves some intercultural training and relocation services (offered by specialists). Literally the first thing I always say during those meeting is to go ...

Must-see destinations in Belgium

Brussels is a great city with lots of things to do. We’ve written several blogs about this, like this one with a few great ideas to (re-)discover the city. We always recommend newcomers to go out there and explore as much as possible. Not everything at once, but to take some time every weekend to visit yet another part of town. It’s hard to imagine, but once you have had enough of Brus...

Expat Club & UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage

Since the foundation in 2013, Expat Club visited countless destinations in Brussels, Belgium and other (surrounding) countries, either by bus, train, flight or (overnight) ferry. In fact, the flags on our destinations map keep keeps on increasing month after month, including farther places. Whether near or far, we think that all the places we visit are totally worth it. Some destinations, however,...

Tips for expats in Brussels

One of the main guiding principles for Expat Club is to bring people together. Our diverse and open-minded community guarantees a relaxed and safe atmosphere in which you can share beautiful moments together. Another great aspect is that you can endlessly learn from other expats. Questions I hear all the time are: “Where should I find a house?”, “How does it work with social secu...

Trip review: Kiev & Chernobyl

At Expat Club we put an incredible variety of destinations on our trip calendar, including some awesome industrial places. Would you like to have some examples? What about car factories? We visited the Audi plant in Brussels several times to live observe the A1 production. Also, we travelled the Netherlands for an exclusive visit to the Tesla factory. So cool to test drive their P90d model in ludi...

Time is of the essence, so read this post

Have you ever boarded a flight on time and then had to wait passed the planned departure time due to unforeseen circumstances? Sometimes the flight needs to wait in the queue of takeoffs. Other times is a technical issue, which is probably the most nervewracking of them all! And then, there’s the missing passenger situation.  I’ve been on flights where you can almost feel the tension w...

It’s not about the drinking and all about the experience

Many of our trips revolve around certain famous alcoholic beverages, but our mission is very clear. We provide experiences and opportunities for discovery, not wild drinking parties. Here are some interesting facts about these particular themed trips and why you should consider them in your travel plans, even when you're not an alcohol drinker.

Trip review: D-Day 75th Anniversary

After every trip I organise and host I ask myself the question what could have been done better. For our recent D-Day trip to Normandy I certainly have some (very) small points for improvement for a next edition (see 2020 trip). But overall I can look back to a successful and deeply impressive project. We got so much more than I had hoped for, despite that traffic on the small hedged-border Norman...

Top 15 must-see Expat Club destinations

After six years of organising Expat Club trips, I am quite happy when I look at our destinations map. We’ve been to well over 100 destinations, including cities, museums, regions, mountain tops, beaches, Christmas markets, waterfalls, panoramic viewpoints, castles and many more famous and less-known landmarks. I believe all places we visit are worth seeing, but now I put my brains at work to reall...
