Day Three: Tongeren and the Gallo-Roman Museum

Tongeren is a must for a Sunday morning in Belgium. Every Sunday there is a massive antique fair in the town. Tongeren is the oldest city in Belgium and was founded by the Romans. The museum in Tongeren has some lovely Roman pieces found in the city.

Day Two: Waterloo

Our visit to Waterloo was a combination of beautiful weather, an interesting history lesson, an impromptu photo shoot and two hundred and sixty odd steps. Very fun!

Day One: Brussels and Bonne EspĂ©rance

My brother and I arrived in Belgium yesterday and were met by our dear friends who reside there. In order to dispose of jet lag we were taken out on whirlwind tour of Brussels (pausing only to scarf down a waffle) followed by a visit to The School of Good Hope, an abbey which dates from 1125.

Afternoon in the Woods

I went on little jaunt recently at a local park with a dear friend. The park has some short wood-sy hiking trails which we traversed, taking our time, laughing lots, snapping pictures. We ended with an impromptu portrait session at a covered bridge and on some nearby railroad tracks.

What I did for my birthday…

Watched my brother play football and I had a great time! Except for the part when someone tried to sing to me. We won’t say who…
