Breastfeeding Dad and Beer

BELGIUM | Friday, 26 Jun 2015 | Views [459] | Comments [1]

I went on a walking tour of Ghent yesterday afternoon. I generally prefer to go on walking tours the first day I see a new town, but I didn't arrive until late the previous day, so that wasn't an option. So although I left Ghent last night, I went on ... Read more >

Bye Belgium

BELGIUM | Friday, 26 Jun 2015 | Views [253]

Yesterday was my final day in Ghent, and in Belgium.  It was a nice day-First I went to the Belfry, which was the watchtower for the town. Unlike other countries in Europe, the Belfrys have nothing to do with the Church-they we're simply used as ... Read more >

Under the Bruggen Clouds

BELGIUM | Monday, 22 Jun 2015 | Views [236]

Yesterday, I spent the day in the company of two different women. First of all, the weather was...blaah. It was in the 50's, (it felt like), cloudly, with a few rays of sun. Although traveling is great, I will gladly take the weather at home. The ... Read more >

Yesterday,  I awoke and took the train to Bruges. Why am I here? Well, way back in Seville, at a hotel bar, the waitress had a name that obviosuly wasn't Spanish,  so I asked her about it. She mentioned she was from Belgium-I told her I was ... Read more >
