About us


The Epic Guide is written by Dieter Vander Velpen and Patricia Goijens. We’ve been a couple since 2008 and love to travel. Our main passion when traveling is citytripping. We love discovering great shops, restaurants & bars,…although we love a good cocktail on the beach from time to time. As an architect (Dieter) and online boutique owner (Patricia), we’re are always focused on discovering the architecture, fashion and design in cities that intrigues us.

Since we regularly get e-mails and questions about our favorite hotspots and tend to take a ton of pictures anyway, we thought it was about time we started a website with the addresses we love. Our focus is on the cities we’ve lived in and loved: our current hometown Antwerp, Barcelona and London. We share our favorite addresses elsewhere on our blog.
