Lyn’s last day with us so we headed to the Antwerp train station.  The train station alone was worth the visit – a marvellous marble construction with a clear roof.  We put Lyn’s bags in storage and headed into town. ... Read more >

Had a walking day and covered about 20km!  Started at the Cinquantenaire, a large arch that celebrates 50 years of Belgium.  Inside it was a beautiful structure (to my mind similar to Crystal Palace) and is the museum of the Armed Forces and ... Read more >
