    Day 8 - Engis/Culturel Centre

    October 12, 2019 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    It was a standard morning of a meat-plenty breakfast in Germany. We said goodbye to Anya and headed out to Belgium. On the way we stopped and got some snacks. I discovered fizzy colas here aren’t as good (mushier) but the “Hungarian” flavored potato chips are awesome and just like Humpty Dumpty.

    When we got into Belgium we were greeted by lots of cows and the smell of cows. Our little hotel is in the middle of nowhere right next to a school of some sort. There was no innkeeper inside the hotel but our rooms were labeled and with keys, so we just took them. Each room has a small kitchenette which was cool.

    The gig was super close by and they had a really nice stage. It took forever to soundcheck but after we got to eat amazing food. Rouladen with polenta, onion, and zucchini inside, some kind of potatoes, a zucchini stuffed with polenta, and fire roasted tomatoes. For dessert we had vanilla ice cream with some kind of sugar around it, and in the middle was a ball of coffee ice cream. There was also a raspberry and some chocolate covered fruit that tasted horrible. Maybe a gooseberry.

    We started the show and only played an hour. It was a great set but apparently they thought we wanted smoke machines and a light show. Afterwards we met people and signed autographs and took photos. Doug unfortunately sold out of CDs. The last set was even better and was insane. Lot of Thomas stunts, us standing and picking up things, and dancing. It was awesome. We even got a great encore clap.

    After a man asked for drumsticks for me and the band to sign as he collects them from the bands. So we did that then ate paprika flavored Lays potato chips. Very good. We then went back and went into Doug’s room. His room has a humongous table in it which he found out was the public table. For some reason his bed is attached to it! We had soda and Côte D’or Pralinettes. Then I went to bed.

    Last day today!

    La Rive Gauche Restaurant, Huy, Belgium

    July 1, 2018 in Belgium ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    The restaurants usually close down at about 2:30 in the afternoon and don't open again until 7pm. There was people sitting on the patio watching the FIFA game so we asked if we could get anything to eat. They said no but changed their mind when we went to leave. We had a terrific dinner on their beautiful patio.Read more

    Hotel Sirus, Huy, Belgium

    July 1, 2018 in Belgium ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    We agree this is the best hotel yet (although it was supposed to have a tub). We were awfully warm in Arras as there was no air conditioning. This place has the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in!Read more

    Grande Place, Huy, Belgium

    July 3, 2018 in Belgium ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Did a little shopping this morning. As you wandered the cobblestone streets the shopkeepers would shout "bonjour Madam". It felt like I was in Disney's Beauty and the Beast movie. Clothes are expensive here.Read more

    La Glace Timbree, Seny, Belgium

    July 2, 2018 in Belgium ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    We decided to head out for a drive to see the countryside in Belgium. It's stunningly beautiful! We stopped in at this restaurant in a small village. It was very good but the usual slow laid back service. We were there for over 2 hours but the apple caramel crepe dessert made it all worthwhile!Read more
