FROM CARTE BLANCHE TO PICTURE PERFECT

Could anyone possibly get tired of Italy? I myself am convinced that this is the most gorgeous place for elegant weddings or any type of event for so many reasons: the stunning sights, the fabulous venues, the delicious Italian food and the welcoming attitude of the Italian people. I want to share with you this amazing event bureau for whom I made a video to promote their business.

DUETTO EVENTI

Duetto Eventi is set in a region called Veneto with famous cities like Venice and Verona and also the beautiful Garda Lake.

Three of Shakespeare’s plays are set in Verona. But for me the most important one is Romeo & Juliette. You can find the statue of Giulietta at the Casa Di Giulietta in Verona. All who write down their love vows to their partner and stick them on the wall will – according to the popular belief – stay together with their partner for the rest of their lives and will be very happy. Even touching the right breast of the bronze statue of Juliette in the small courtyard will bring luck to all who are trying to find their true love.

Venice. The City of Romance they call it. Almost everyone I know wants to visit the city in Italy for a number of good reasons. It’s a perfect spot for events or maybe tying the knot!

“YOU MAY HAVE THE UNIVERSE, IF I MAY HAVE ITALY” – G. VERDI

Whether it comes to tying the knot, renewing your vows, business meetings, incentives, parties, retreats or any other private or professional happening, Duetto Eventi is your number one to make all of this happen.

Seville, the city & culture!

A southern Spanish city to lose yourself in and surrender to its magic.

But to do so you must embrace the heart of the city and it’s culture. So when in Seville, do as the people of Seville do: promenade along the river, grab yourself some tapas and a cerveza (a glass of beer), spend the day outside and see where the city takes you. Living in Belgium I have to deal with a lot of cloudy and rainy days. So spending all day outside in the Spanish sun? I need nothing more to be honest.

I, for one, love strolling around the old city centre and observe the way of life. Walking around until my legs can’t carry me any further! Let yourself be amazed by all the authentic architecture the city has to offer. Standing under the Giralda or strolling in the stunningly gardens of the beautiful Alcazar Palace. Take a walk up to the Barrio Santa Cruz, which is the old Jewish quarter.

In the narrow streets you can often find small inside gardens where you can relax and escape the warm temperatures. If you had enough city for a while, take the bike and escape the to the Parque Maria Luisa. It’s an amazing place, a bit of nature in the city. Absolutely try to see the beautiful Plaza de Espana.

Sevilla

One of the things that are important to me as well is the experience of the culture and to try to capture a few special moments with my camera. Luckily I was in Seville during one of the main cultural events in Seville: Semana Santa (the holy week which takes place around Easter).

The Semana Santa is religious event, but for most of the week, there’s a lot of frivolity. I am not religious at all. So for me it was amazing to see how a city could change overnight in to this holy place and how everyone goes along in this tradition, young and old. It’s amazing how everybody gets dressed up putting on his or her Sunday suits for the procession. Throughout the week, the processions leave churches all over the city from early afternoon onwards, strolling through the city and back to their resting place many hours later.

 

One Human Family

What can I say about Key West?

A continual welcoming and accepting attitude toward all kinds of people has created a unique cultural mix of different ethnic groups, languages, traditions, religions, foods, and freethinkers. It has resulted in a different cultural character that the community of Key West refers to as the “ONE HUMAN FAMILY” philosophy.

I took these pictures on one of my walks around the town. They represent the unique neighborhoods of Key West with unique people striving to live harmoniously and work side-by-side with one another, setting aside all social differences, regardless of ethnicity, social class, or sexual orientation. Key West is connected with the mainland by different bridges that stream down over 100 miles of small islands. Once you get to Key West you’ve become part of a tiny diverse and harmonious social universe. Give yourself the chance to get to know the local ways of Key West.

All People Are Created Equal Members of One Human Family. It’s the Official Philosophy of Key West, Florida, adopted by resolution by the City Commission in October 2000.

If you happen to be in Key West when it’s the Key West Songwriter’s Festival, you’ll have a great way to experience the local ways and people surrounded by music.
