Really casual morning today, it was raining so instead of walking around Bruges a little more we decided to push on to Lieges. After an uneventful two hour drive we made it. Hostel is nice, and gave us good advice on a walk around the highlights of Lieges. A mammoth hill climb and a few miles (and beers) later we're ready for a nice evening meal. Spa tomorrow, but it looks like it may well be wet, so we may have to improvise a little. Jason - asleep, got a sore back, possibly car related Tom - asleep Steve - asleep Joss - comforting his mother on the phone ;) Mike - waiting for people to wake up Overall everyone is loving the trip so far, Belgium has been great and the car has been a ... read more

Palaces, saxophones and elevators for boats among other things The main goal for our visit to Belgium was to visit the town Baarle-Hertog/Baarle-Nassau. We have already written about that part of the trip. We had a few more days on our hands and decided to drive around and see what the rest of Belgium is like. If we are to give you a quick resume we can say that the rest of Belgium is very enjoyable and interesting and we will definitely go back again in the future for another road trip. We loved it! The only downside we can think of is the food. We had way too much french fries to eat these days. There are many palaces in Belgium. We are not saying that there are more palaces per capita there the... read more

Hello Everyone! Sorry it has been a while since I have been able to get to a computer. I only brought my Iphone with me instead of my computer and I don't think typing a blog on my Iphone sounds like much fun. Anyways, we had an exciting adventure in Paris over the weekend and now we are in Liege, Belgium. Tomorrow we travel to Luxemburg and then on to Brussels. The trip ends there for the study abroad program but Emily and I are off to Rome on Saturday (YESS!) We left on a 4 hour bus ride to Paris on Thursday morning and arrived in the city around 3:00 pm. We walked along the Louvre area and the shopping center there. Friday we went to the eiffel tower and were there for a total ... read more

Today I went to Liege, which is the capitol of the French speaking part of Belgium. Liege is located next to the Meuse River and close to the Netherland and German borders. The Liège-Guillemins train station was designed by Santiago Calatrava and is quite the architectural structure. From the train station I first went to the Liege Cathedral, also known as St. Paul’s Cathedral. It contains St. Lambert’s tomb and is one of the original seven collegiate churches in Belgium. I then headed over to and began to climb the 400 steps stairway "Montagne de Bueren", which leads from Hors-Château to the Citadel. I didn’t end up going to the Citadel, but at the top of the stairs there is a magnificent view over the city. After climbing and descending the 400 steps, I walked over ... read more

Toutes les belles choses ont une fin, même les plus folles...Après avoir passé 2 jours en compagnie de Nicolas dans son petit paradis montagnard, j'ai repris mon sac et la route vers Paris. Le trajet fut plus rapide qu'initialement prévu et ce grâce a Christophe qui m'a acceuillit a bord de son camion à la hauteur de Baune et avec qui j'ai parcouru les 300 derniers kilomètres me séparant de Paris. Paris...peut-être la plus belle ville du monde et encore je ne laisse le "peut-être" uniquement car je n'ai pas encore vu toutes les villes du monde. Chaque fois que je reviens en ses murs, j'en tombe un peu plus amoureux. Cette ville hypnothise et ensorcèle...jusqu'au moment où il revient de payer la note...probablement son seul defaut d'ailleurs. 3 jours passé en retrouvailles et promenade avant ... read more

Time is up. For now As I pull into the final few hours of my month long trip to Belgium I just wanted to end it on a rather lofty note. This trip has no doubt been unforgettable. I have learned so much and had fun doing it and at the end of the day that's what its all about. Did you take gain something from being there that day or did you waste it. No wasted days here, even on those days where a nap and an early bed time were necessary. Please enjoy these last few pictures that I will share with you and feel free to any that I've posted as your motivator to start your own adventure. Good luck. ... read more

Belgium the Magnificent! Welcome back to another exciting segment of Adventures in the Land of Belgium with Patrick. Today's blog will focus on different cities all throughout Belgium. Have a look! Antwerp As soon as you pulled in to the train station you are greeted by beauty. As seen in this first picture. Antwerp itself is all of 2 hours away from where I am staying in Liege. Fantastic. Without a doubt a very built up and nice city however, it definitely had its blissful little subtle nuances. First order of business, find Morgane's friend who was spending the day with us, and obtain food. And what better place to do that than a Patisserie? I bought myself an awesome little bagel like bread substance with this cream in the middle that borders on the ... read more
