On the road again… After out great adventure in Munich we decided to take the orange Urban Art NOW hippy van down to Roeselare, Belgium to check out the DayOne Festival. We found great murals, some good friends and made new ones, got a great tour by Bjorn from Street Art Belgium and had a blast of a day. Check out our travel report!
Besides that Roeselare (BE) is famous for cyclist Jean-Pierre Monseré, lots of great poets and the burgerbar Open Kitchen (so good!), Roeselare is now also famous for its beautiful mural…
