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

Do your self a favor You can go anywhere you want in the world. Anywhere you want in life! But you have to want it bad enough to work for it. If you have ever thought about traveling then do yourself a favor and go. I don't care if its another city or another country. Leave. Take a road trip. Pack a bag. Buy a train ticket.

Twelve Feet Protecting Devices A sketchers commercial once said that the first thing a woman notices are the shoes a man is wearing. Good thing Belgium knows nothing of sketchers. I bring to you a sneak preview of my Belgian shoe collection before anyone else will see them. I came with 3 pairs, im leaving with 3 pairs. Those last three pairs just happen to be new thats all. Some of you may be asking why I bought so many pairs of shoes, and what is the purpose of having 6 pairs!? Dont one pair of shoes do the same as any other pair? no Each pair of shoes serves a completely different purpose. They all have their strengths and weeknesses and that is the purpose of this Blog. Learn the reason behind each shoe ... read more

Episode 5 Welcome back to the ever fun yet never dumb adventures of Patrick in the Land of Belgium. Well i'm back and updating on a Saturday (thank me later) to bring you whats new with me and my travels. This week has been an exciting one from Skating on the town to visiting Holland so follow along and enjoy. Monday, I realize that traveling for more than a few weeks at a time can have a hefty toll on your body. So I decided to do myself a favor and get healthy! I tied my skateboarding shoes extra tight, grabbed my iPod shuffle and headed out for a jog. The morning was crisp (at 11am) and I was slightly less than awake. I went for what I estimated to be a 2 and a ... read more

The Haps I just wanted to let you all in on a few things that I have been doing over this first week, and let me warn you if you get jealous of travel as easily as I do you may want to just read over my food blog again. Hah Well lets start things off with a bang. Of course you all know I love to skateboard, its my passion! So naturally I brought my board over seas with me to experience new territory. And boy did I ever. Morgane mentioned that there is not a skatepark in Liege per say but there is a skate spot. So on my first excursion by myself I brought along my skateboard, within 10 minutes of getting off the bus I see a skater roll past me. ... read more

Belgian Food Of course, when you think of Belgium your thinking of only one kind of food. And I speak of the Belgian Waffle. Now, demonstrated in my first picture you are correct, that is a very prevalent food source out here and it happens to be their national snack. However! There are many different kinds of things that I want to talk about. Such as the fantastic fries. All over the cities and towns you can find stores/shops dedicated solely to selling fries. You may think that is crazy, well i'm here to tell you its crazy sweet. You can get more fries than you have ever had in your life.. in one sitting. You can get fries with ketchup, mayonnaise, mustard, other stuff, mayonnaise, etc. The list goes on and on. Oh and ... read more

Hello, this entry covers my brief stay in the Belgium Ardennes. Upon leaving Maastricht, I slowly climbed the hill towards the old fort, passing a midget golf course on the way (I even doubled checked, it was midget and not mini - a very strict entry policy if you ask me), before rounding a huge quarry and then joining the GR5 as it made its way into Belgium. I had been told to look out for 'a hut' where I could get a certificate for completing the Pieterpad but despite my best efforts, I was unable to locate it, which is a shame as I was planning to frame my certificate and place it next to my degree - after all, I probably worked just as hard to get it. I'm sure I'll be able to ... read more
