Okay, it’s not really Bruxelles, it’s a 30 min drive away by car. The Hergé Museum at Louvain la Neuve just opened three years back and is a must-see for every Tim & Struppi aka Tintin & Milou aka Tintin & Snowy fan. Very impressive to learn about the process of comic making, too

Looking back again at all the familiar characters and stories from my childhood was like a trip on memory lane. I devoured Tim & Struppi when I was a child. It’s a timeless classic. The museum tells the story of the life and work of Hergé and of course of Tim & Struppi.  The most fascinating and fan friendly rooms where the exhibition of the original decor like the rocket model from “Destination Moon” or the life size shark submarine which was build only for the books as a reference for Hergé and his fellow workshop artists.

We spend a lovely afternoon in the museum and have to come back: every first sunday of the month is free entry!  Although the location of the museum at Louvain la  Neuve is a bit strange. It’s a superficial student town (catholic university) with a very sterile atmosphere.  At the museum I missed a bit the critical historical connection between Hergé’s work and colonialism or the war.  But I enjoyed the ride through Hergé’s and Tintin’s world.


UnknownFinding it very hard to find nice and unique baby clothes and accessoires I turned to a good old friend that never failed to disappoint.

Etsy offers a massive selection for babies either recycled or handmade. And I have found dozens of one-of-a-kind things for my little one of-a-kind-girl.
