    Friendly Belgians!

    October 17, 2017 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    Great sleep then up and over to the Grande Place for breakfast. Had a wonderful waiter who had lived in Canada - said he would be “shedding a tear” after we left :). Fabulous breakfast- Mike had this amazing French dish (in pic).

    One more time hauling suitcases over cobbled stones (would never have done it without Mike!). Wiggled our way out of Brussels! Hurray! Last more complex town!

    Good drive to Chimay - had Chimay beer and Britt and I had yummy regional dishes - her’s was eel!! And she liked it! Mine a salad all full of yummy bits of cheese and pate etc.

    To the gorgeous Abbey de Sacramont and we were able to wander their grounds and go into their church- very peaceful and lovely.

    Drove to the commercial side of the Chimay beer which seemed a tad more commercial- things not beer like- than others. Didn’t stay long.

    Found our precious Hotel Franc Bois. UP 3 flights of stairs again! Poor Mike but he’s a trooper. Strolled the area on just a perfect day - very beautiful in this area of Belgium.
