Eva in Brussels, Belgium

Eva was born and raised in Brussels where she studied Contemporary Art History and Cultural Management. As far as she can remember she was always fascinated and passionate about anything related to art and culture, but mostly about the people who have the ability to create and transmit an idea through any kind of medium. During the last four years she has been living and working in Tel Aviv and London. She started a blog, The Bubblist, to share her experience with the local art scenes while still keeping an eye on Brussels.

Logistics

Where did you travel?
We went to Reykjavic, Iceland in January, 2011. We wanted to go someplace that had a city, nightlife, and art to see as well as natural adventures. We only had about ten days to travel so we also liked the idea that in a short amount of time we would be able to see a lot (most) of the country. Continue reading “Leslie in Iceland”
