About @Jojes

45 years old • Female • Citizen of Belgium

Hi

I am Jessika and I'm one of the members who was shocked by the news we got on January 6th about Trip Advisor closing down the website Virtual Tourist.
I have been a member there for some years and it was like an online home to me. I mostly participated in the different forums and had a couple of travel pages.
In case anyone is interested, this is the link to my VT page (should be online until the end of February). http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/114fff/

I live in Tongeren, which is Belgium's oldest town. It's a lovely town that dates back to the Roman times.

Together with my husband and our 2 sons I like to travel, discovering what the world has to offer.
We go back to Austria a lot, so the Salzburgerland area is quite known to me.
We also have some kind of ongoing 'love affair' with Iceland, visited 3 times since 2012 and planning on definately going back.
2014 saw us spend a month in Canada and the summer of 2016 took us to South Africa for a month.
So you see we're not the resort-type of travellers.

I'm just starting to explore here, so I guess I'll be calling on the 'older' members here for some assistance ... so thanks for that already in advance!

I hope that all of us coming from VT can find a new home here ...

Tongeren

Tongeren ... the town where I was born, where I grew up and where I still live 😉.

Mittersill

We’ve been to Salzburgerland 20+ times, always staying in Saalfelden am Steinernen Meer. But since we have ventured out over the entire Salzburgerland, I might be able to also assist in this destination.

South Africa

We've been to south Africa for a month in July 2016. We only covered the eastern part of the country during that time, from Johannesburg down to Hluhluwe-Umfolozi, Kosi Bay, Krugerpark and nearby areas, Mapungubwe National Park and back down via Pilanesberg Natonal Park. And apparently we have a case of “Africanitis” ... some VT’ers warned me about that: Africa gets under your skin and you can’t get rid of it ... so you keep returning 😉. And that’s what we did in 2017 ... we went back for 24 days, again covering the eastern part of the country.

British Columbia

Travelled around Alberta and British Columbia for a month in the summer of 2014. We still have to cover most part of it, but I look forward to help out on the parts we have seen.
