MONACO WEEKEND!

by admin on / BLOG, CARS, LIFESTYLE, TRAVEL

Another weekend, another roadtrip – Monaco that is for this one! A little mix of business, fun, food, proper views, an amazing atmosphere and just a fantastic roadbuddy!

We decided to drive to the Côte d’Azur via Italy and Swiss (well, actually the Bmw navigation system decided to give us that route). From the rainy Belgium to the snowy Alps to the sunny French Riviera, more then enough beautiful sights during the road down!

I couldn’t wish for a better roadbuddy aka co-pilot then this lady!

It’s all about the roadtrip and it doesn’t matter if you’re stuck in a traffic jam or miss the right exit, these views are all just worth it. Talking about the most ridiculous subjects and having the most stupid laughs all ride long is something I’ll sign for every time.

Having a typical French breakfast at the Cafe De Paris is a must-do, beside the tasty croissants there’s a fleet of supercars passing by, win-win!

From Porsche 918’s to the newest Ferraris and an overload of Aston Martins, even spotted a Ferrari Enzo but I was too late to have a picture of it (read: sad face).

The weather and those perfect temperatures as in 22 degrees were just perfect, they contribute amazingly to the atmosphere which Monaco is delivering. You can not not like it.

Strolling around the city and seeing the link to the Formula 1 track, curbstones all around the city, F1 heritage everywhere you look.

The Port Hercule where all the yachts are is just on another level. Nowhere in Europe you’ll see so many and big yachts. The Dilbar (which was actually there the day before) and the ‘A’ yacht are only a few of the many famous ones which dock very often to the Monaco port.

And who would I be if I didn’t snap a little picture of these 2 beauties in the harbour with some fancy looking boats on the background. (Got waaaay to many shots but will share these on my Instagram over the next few days/weeks)

And shooting makes us hungry! Little snack at the port – yes, we love food!

The day after we decided to go for a little breakfast on an abandoned beach just outside Monaco. It was by this little alley we ended up at the beach, pretty cool!

A couple of tasty donuts and a big coffee from Starbucks was just perfect as we were still full from dinner the night before haha!

Jup, the little black spot on the photo above is us. It couldn’t be anymore perfect as this, hearing the sound of the waves and seeing the beautiful blue/greenish water was everything we just needed.

It doesn’t get any better then this, wish I could have breakfast here every day!

No words needed! Azure blue water!

Monaco things, a Cars & Coffee on a sunday with some classic Ferraris, A Mclaren Senna, Porsche 918 and some Lamborghinis… I had worse sundays.

Just a typical sight when you’re walking around the city. A perfect family wagon with an AMG badge and the classic Huracan spider, what’s not to like?

And Margaux’s G-wagon fetish was well feeded during the weekend! This Brabus G with camo wrap was probably the best one around! The sound was even more amazing!

When you walk in the city or just sit on your balcony at your room, you just hear supercars all day long. It’s hard to explain but the luxury cars creeping all over the city create such an amazing vibe, motivates me a lot and sparks many ideas.

With my motivation and ideas work-wise on point, I got energy kicking in hard!

Bars and good drinks all over the city! Mojitos and Cosmopolitans coming our way! With Nobu in the city we went for dinner over at the restaurant. Read all about it at Margauxs blog over the next few days!

Walking home is never dull at Monaco, ne-ver!

Sightseeing is one thing but heading over to the Tête-du-chien is the best thing you can do when you’re around Monte Carlo. You won’t be disappointed, take my word.

A full overview over the city and a breathtaking view!

Monaco on the left and Nice on the right side!

Time to head home and get back to work, fully energised and many ideas loading in my head! We’ll be back soon for another trip very soon!

I can’t get tired of this sight! My 2 babes looking pretty as always!

On the way home we stopped for a quick picture at the historic Reims racetrack, I’ll drop some more pictures of this in my next blogpost. Stay tuned folks, thanks for reading!

LET’S GO SKI!

by admin on / BLOG, TRAVEL

Ok, by this time you’ve seen many of these images from your friends who went skiing or snowboarding! I wanted to go skiing in winter for ages (like really, ages!) and this year I just did it. I love the wintercold in a paradise like this, loads of snow, loads of sun and the perfect setting, what’s not to like? France, here we come!

An amazing hotel with an even more amazing staff makes the short trip so worth it. Exiting the hotel and being directly on the ski slope was just amazing, the feeling of clicking on your skis and just slide your way down to the elevator was great! Imagine dragging your gear out of the hotel first and then to hit a bus for 30 minutes to the skislopes and when you’re all done and tired to the bone waiting for a bus and a bus ride back to the hotel… I was pretty happy with this!

I mean… I’ve been in many hotelrooms lately but these ones are in my top 5 for sure! Ok, the food buffet and restaurant was amazing too! Food is life!

I love dimensions so I was pretty excited to fly my drone here! Bit scary tho as it was -15 degrees when I flew it out there to get these shots, not sure how those drones handle cold air but it survived so we’re all good. If it would have crashed, I would have started a national search and rescue action – haha!

The funny thing was I had to launch the drone from the room (which had no outdoor area) so this was a bit tricky!

Not sure if I flew my drone so high I arrived at Mars or… This just looks so amazing! Seeing these images makes me want to go back!

I went skiing for so many times on an indoor track but this means nothing with this fresh snow and this view! Sign me up every year please!

And as you guys know how I love my sunsets… these were just on another level!

I went for the ski while Margaux went for the snowboard! I was so suprised by how well this lady could handle the board! She always had to wait for me as I was so slow – ha! I love it when somebody pushes me to go harder, that’s how you get better and improve yourself!

I’ll be honest with you guys! The first day I almost broke every bone in my body by falling over a hundred times! As I always used to ski indoor, the fresh snow and feeling was so different and I wasn’t used to this. I adjusted my technique the following days and I never felt again (ok, maybe 1 more time (really)).

This is what heaven looks like when you love skiing! Can’t we just go back please!?

The most important thing after skiing is obviously the ‘apres-ski’! (read: booze) Fresh mojito’s all day long!

The mojito’s were amazing but the food and desserts were even more amazing! I don’t think I ever ate so much! (Ok maybe in Las Vegas at the buffets)

And to work off all the food and drinks, we went swimming in the pool with the sickest view I ever had from a pool! It doesn’t get any better then this – feeling lucky!

And we finished with a proper gym session (I didn’t had any photos of me working out so I guess you won’t mind if I use one of this lady) to stay in shape and get some more energy. And this was the perfect way to get my Red Bull ice cold, just how I like them!

I literally can’t wait to go back! One of the best trips I’ve done and I finally went skiing!

KEVVE-INC

by admin on / BLOG, LIFESTYLE

You guys know that I can’t sit still and that’s also the reason why it’s been a bit quiet for a while on the blog as it’s pretty busy. Remember my merch line which I started with just a simple logo of myself? I decided to spice up the design a bit and this 2.0 design is really something up my sleeve! KEVVE-INC is born and it’s time to get the word out there and push this to the maximum! We now have 2 designs available (1.0 and 2.0) in 2 colors as in black and white and as it’s winter I (and you guys) could use some hoodies to keep you warm so there’s also a hoodie in light grey available.

As I love quality goods, I went for the proper warm hoodie with double layer to keep you warm in any condition. Same goes for the T-shirts, quality materials and assembled in Belgium of course.

I hope you guys like the details! I love them! It’s cool to see a product come to life and seeing it out there. As with all the other products I make (and made), we’re shipping worldwide!

Would love to thank Kevin and Margaux for helping me with this as it’s more than just making a T-shirt! Go check out Margauxs blog – lots of good reads on it! And of course, stay tuned for more on KEVVE-INC.

MY OWN MERCH!

by admin on / BLOG, CARS, LIFESTYLE

It. Is. Finally. Here. My own T-shirts, my own merch! I wanted to do this for such a long time now but if you want to do something good in life, it takes time. Been working on this for the last few weeks and the finals are here. I runned a few other samples first but I wasn’t really convinced about the previous samples and quality. Now, we here and pretty happy with the result! Design 1.0 is now up in the webshop (link above or click HERE) and I’m already working on design 2.0 – Can you feel my excitement?

I want to thank Kevin – Illukrative for designing this logo/artwork together with me. I had this idea/design in my head for such a long time but could not make this in to reality without his magic hands and vector artwork. Need a logo or artwork yourself? Check out his website and say hi!

As I’m keeping up with my new years resolutions, here’s another vlog. Showcasing my merch and taking a closer look at the M4 as promised!

VLOG #193 | CARS UPDATE!

by admin on / BLOG, CARS

As a lot of people were asking about the vlog and the E30… Here we go, let combine those 2 and make you guys happy! One of my new years resolutions is to get the vlog back up again so I’m keeping my word. The wheels on the 7 are like new again thanks to Jeroen from J-Wheels, the place to be to get your wheels look like new again. The lips of the Rotiform wheels on the 7 are high gloss piano black and very sensitive for scratches by sand or road dirt. As I like everything mint and like new it was time to get them re-done. When it comes to the E30 we got a whole lot of work to do, the works on the car were down a bit over the last few weeks during the holidays but we’re back in full force. Enjoy the video peeps!
