    June 25, 2019 in Belgium ⋅ ☁️ 27 °C

    The Port of Antwerp is one of the biggest in the world, ranking second in Europe. The city is also known for its diamond industry and trade.
    We walked into the city after dinner to look around. We went to the top floor of the Museum aan de Stroom for some great views of Antwerp.
    We continued into the old town and into the main square, the Grote Markt, with its extravagant city hall (which was sadly covered up while being renovated), its 16th century guildhalls, and many restaurants and cafés. We picked a nice pub in the square and had a drink before heading back to the boat. Antwerp old town is a very easy to walk around.

    Old Town Antwerp

    June 25, 2019 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    It was very quiet when we were in the old town!
    Also threw in a picture of the Museum aan de Stroom to show some modern architecture - this is the building the previous photos were taken from - 10th Floor.Read more

    Show #26 Antwerpen

    January 19 in Belgium ⋅ ☀️ 6 °C

    Angekommen in Belgien. Die letzte Show dieses Blocks.

    Da die Kellys hier nicht so bekannt sind, spielen wir nur 2/3 der Halle. Was den Vorteil hat, dass wir einen der Trucks hinter der Bühne stehen lassen können.

    Der Aufbau verlief durch die großräumige Halle und den Luxus das die LKWs in den Innenraum fahren können sehr fix. So hatten alle einen entspannten Aufbau.

    So langsam kann man über die Show schon wirklich nichts spannendes erzählen. Patricia hat sich auf holländisch mit dem Publikum unterhalten, Kathy auf Französisch und der Rest auf Englisch... Ein bunter MischMasch.

    Der Abbau hat sich leider verzögert, weil die Trucks mitten im Abreise Stau standen, sind wohl zu spät losgefahren... Für uns vom Ton hieß das dann mit allen Helfern 30 Minuten rumsitzen bis wir etwas machen konnten. Sehr ärgerlich. Dafür haben wir dann eine Rekord Ladezeit hingelegt, immerhin. 💪🏻

    Bis nächstes Wochenende 👋🏻

    On the road again....

    July 3, 2019 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    After spending a great time in the UK visiting family and friends, as well as servicing and MOT's, it was time to hit the road again.

    A quick Dover - Calais crossing on a beautiful sunny day and then along a busy coast road towards Belgium, destination Antwerp. We were surprised at just how busy the traffic was, lorry after lorry transporting goods between the UK, France, Germany and Holland alone. It was slow going around Antwerp and we arrived at the Camperpark to be checked in by a guy who wasn't wearing a shirt (well, it was a hot day) but what he lacked in clothing was made up for by upper-body tattoos and a right nipple piercing! Despite being on the outskirts of the city, right next to the exhibition centre, the site was amazingly quiet and had plenty of greenery and lots of wild rabbits.

    The reason for us heading to Antwerp was so that Chris could meet up with Frederic Konincxx, an old work colleague and Belgium Lotus car dealer, whom he had not seen for 20 years! Not that it made any difference as they chatted away as though they had only seen each other last week, as Frederic showed us around his showroom and cars.

    That evening we had dinner together with Veronique, Frederic's partner, in an Italian restaurant in the grounds of an old castle. The food was amazing and we had a lovely evening together promising to keep in touch.

    Day 22: Rotterdam/Antwerpen

    July 30, 2019 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    We leave our crowded festival-like camping for another day of travel.

    Our first stop is Rotterdam, where we have about an hour and a half to visit before our next train. As we come out of the train station, there is an Indian man posing in front of the station, with his friend kneeling down to get the best angle of the not so amazing backdrop. I offer to do the same, but Mikel decides that today is not a modeling day. We obviously start our exploration in the Cool District, but soon discover that it is not so cool. Instead, we prefer to rest a bit in a park near the river to relieve our backs from our pretty heavy backpacks.

    Next is Antwerp, with, in my non-engineer opinion, the most beautiful train station so far. The city is also very beautiful, we love the town center with the cute restaurants and the vines overcoming the facades. We head to the port to catch a view of the Scheldt river before deciding to taste the famous Belgian beer. We chose to go to Dr. Beer, a beautiful beer shop with hammock chairs inside, and decide to enjoy the sun out on the terrace. The manager, Dr. Beer himself, with his amazing beard and Dali-style 'stach serves us the best beers we have tasted in our whole lives. We fall in love with this place, and enjoy our beers while playing Mikado (which Mikel surprisingly wins).

    We maybe enjoy the place too much, and realize that we don't have that much time to catch our train (as usual, we aren't the best to evaluate time) and make literally a run for it. My beer-filled belly doesn't enjoy the run that much, but we are also always lucky, and arrive 4 min before the train leaves.

    Day 6 - Essen/Uhlenkrug

    October 11, 2019 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Definitely the best food today. We drove out of France and had to make it through Belgium once again. We stopped at a gas station with a restaurant on top. Thomas and Andrew got fish, Doug got a burger, and I got schnitzel. It was weird because at this rest stop you could buy beer and wine and they had the appropriate glasses for them. So strange. The food was fine.

    We got back into Germany and made it to our gig. It was an old timely schnitzel house with family styling seating, and four choices of drinks: Beer/radler, Coke, wine, or water. That’s the norm here. Some places it’s literally coke, the local beer, or weird fizzy water. We ordered schnitzel with potatoes. When we got it it was amazing. It was two giant pieces with these incredible potatoes, plus a salad. The sauce was a peppercorn sauce. It was the best but I ate too much.

    The gig was fun. We had a few people sit in including Rick Alan on alto sax, a German guitarist and singer also (forgot their names). We had met the singer at the Swordfish. He apparently plays bass too but recently broke his shoulder. He sang really great.

    At the end of the night we stopped at some Turkish place. I didn’t get food but tried their tea. Pretty good. We then went back and the night was over.

    Just wanted to mention we met a 95 year old WWII vet at the gig. He fought on the Nazi side and was imprisoned for three years by the Russians. He was very nice. What wasn’t nice was the weird drunk artsy guy who kept trying to touch my earplugs.
