Antwerp Belgium 6 November 2013 It rained on and off during the night at Camping Memling in Bruges but we were warm and dry. This camp site had a bread dispensing machine which has fresh bread in it every morning except Thursdays. There was also a machine you could buy an hours internet use. More and more we are seeing automation/self-serve machines at camp sites and more restricted reception times. Camping in 6 degrees and with constant drizzle of rain I guess encourages Europeans to stay home. Back to Antwerp. There was only 80 kms between Bruges and Antwerp. We arrived at about 11.00am. We parked the camper on the banks of the major River Schelde which flows into the harbour. We parked next to the Steen Plein which was a fortress built around 1200. It ... read more

De kindjes konden hun ogen niet geloven wanneer plots hun bompa 'moto' na meer dan 7 weken voor hun ogen stond. Na wat keuvelen en vertellen over de reis trokken we in een stralend zonnetje naar het strand. Ook de wind was volledig verdwenen dus het was echt warm, ideaal voor waterpret, zandkastelen en vooral veel springen over de soms, zeker voor de kindjes, hoge golven. Rond 16h trokken we terug richting caravan voor een aperitiefje om nadien bij een lekker Texels biertje en gamba's op een terrasje heerlijk de dag af te sluiten. Toch zeker met bompa, wij hielden nog een lange douchebeurt en sloten de dag samen af onder een prachtige sterrenhemel. Na klaarlichte nachten is het enorm fijn om nog eens van een mooie sterrenhemel te kunnen genieten, zeker als ze vergezeld gaat ... read more

We had a rest day for the Porsche today. We all had a trip to Antwerp in Tom & Marta’s 7-seater Ford C-Max. We had a leisurely start after a proper breakfast for a change. Not so sure about the rest !! for us after the quiet of the Hotels rooms ,as we are now sharing our space with William and Hannah, Tom & Marta and Granny Dinah. We were all able to get into the 7-seater, so we gave the Porsche a rest. It was reasonably warm in the sunshine today but cooler in the shade, but perhaps more importantly dry. As the very privileged guest blogger today, I will fill you in on the day out. We became sightseeing tourists for the day and joined the throngs in a lovely sunny Antwerp. We set ... read more

‘”To eat ethnic food in the place that gave life, and to immerse oneself in the history and culture of that place, can transform an otherwise mundane meal into an extraordinary experience. “ ( Benning J, 2010) Belgium is famous for its many types of cuisines. I really enjoyed my stay here in Belgium since we ate authentic Belgian Waffles, Belgian Fries and Belgian Chocolates. Most of the Cuisines that I tried were from random restaurants, cafes and food stand ups. I did not anymore researched on what would be the best one since I think it is all the same, so I picked the restaurant/ cafe which will be convenient for my walking. Luckily all of the foods that I have tasted were really good. While walking in the shopping district of Antwerp, Belgium, I ... read more

Our last minute decision to make a quick stop in Belgium was a success! Although we had booked open train tickets to return to Amsterdam from Hamburg as our last trip, we decided that once we hit Amsterdam we would quickly book tickets to Belgium and hop on the first train out. This was all going very smoothly as the next train departed 15 minutes after our arrival; we grabbed a quick bite, bought our tickets, and jumped back onto the train. About 20 minutes into the ride, we started to notice that our train was taking an extra long stop at one of the stations along the way. An announcement came over the speaker rambling something in Dutch and then a lady came through the cabin to alert everyone that a kidnapping had taken place ... read more

Binnen twee dagen wordt de droom echt werkelijkheid! Dan vertrek ik naar Miami om drie jaar lang een opleiding tot filmregisseur te volgen. Hier heb ik jaren op gewacht en naartoe gestreefd en eindelijk gaat het gebeuren.. Nu is het nog wel heel stresserend allemaal: visa in orde krijgen, koffers inpakken, van iedereen afscheid nemen, ... En daar zal het ook niet meteen van een leien dakje lopen waarschijnlijk: nog een kot zoeken, de buurt leren kennen, ... Hoe het allemaal verloopt daar zal ik op deze blog nog wel uitgebreid meedelen, dus als je geïnteresseerd bent, log dan af en toe eens in en wie weet staat er een nieuw avontuur online! Tot de volgende blog!... read more
