One of the most wonderful and greatest exhibitions in the world is planning on stopping in a winter wonderland of a city that should be considered visiting.
The exhibition is none other than the International Festival of Ice Sculptures ‘Ice Magic’, which is due to come to Brussels after a huge success in Paris. The festival, as the name would suggest, is about ice sculptures and will be running at Place des Palais from December 20th 2013 to February 9th 2014.
The inspiration for this display will be classic comic strip characters, and all of the favorites in Europe will be there in full see through and illuminate force, including Tintin, the Smurfs, Asterix the Gaul and Lucky Luke amongst many more. There will also be many sculptures of famous Belgian landscapes, some of which will tower at over 20 feet.
The ice sculptures are going to be made out of a whopping 420 tons of ice and will be carved in 3 weeks by 20 master sculptors. Of course, this isn’t the only thing to do at the palace as an ice slide, sure to be a thrilling experience and a bar made out of ice where one can drink a hot beverage and marvel and the carvings around them are also available. Be sure to pack all of your warm clothes though, as the temperature can go to a minus 10. This is one attraction to consider visiting in Brussels.
One designer accessory that works as a camera case and will even hold a small thermos to withstand the outdoor temps is an authentic Louis Vuitton Monogram Reporter. The design is based along the line of the type of bag foreign correspondents use to carry. They needed a place for everything, just like any traveling guy or gal would need today.
The Reporter case features the exquisite and recognizable Louis Vuitton monogram canvas which is coated, making it weather resistant. The natural cowhide leather trimmings and gold tone hardware add to its amazing large frame.
It features two zippered compartments around the bag utilizing gold tone LV engraved pulls. This easily allows toiletries, iPad and camera and important papers, such as a passport, to have their own space.
The pre-owned Louis Vuitton Reporter has a long adjustable cross body strap in canvas making it easy to carry heavier items within it. the shoulder bag also contains a front pocket, perfect for storing a few flat items.
The interiors are lined in a beige linen-like fabric and will protect whatever is within.
The authentic Louis Vuitton Monogram Reporter is a unisex bag but is a favorite for divas to carry when sightseeing.
