    Antwerp

    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.Read more

    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.

    Angekommen

    June 4, 2019 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Eigentlich ein toller Tag! Immer nur am Fluß entlang, perfektes Wetter und jetzt lecker gegessen und getrunken in einem wirklich schönen kleinen belgischen Ort. Wenn nur der Gegenwind nicht wäre. 106 km nur Gegen Wind, das nervt irgendwann. Egal, es ist vollbracht und ich bin in einem sehr schönen Hotel. Seht selbst😁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.

    Brasschaat Park near Antwerp

    August 30, 2018 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    We are stationed at an official stopover just 11km from Antwerp. A line of mature oaks, thick bushes and a cycle track seperate us from a busy main road, but with the woodland behind us, the site feels more rural than it actually is. We could stay hear for up to 72 hours and were pleased to see it has all the facilities, including recycling; something we've found difficult to source of late.

    It was a later start than usual this morning as we took advantage of the sunshine and looked around the town we'd stayed in. A short drive took us to Aldi, whose car park we lunched in, before making our way up the motorway. When we hit traffic jams the sat nav suggested a different route. Unfortunately we didn't realise until it was too late that this new route took us through central Antwerp; Belgian's 2nd city. We'd visited in November and it seemed like half the streets had roadworks on them. Sadly this was still the case and we spent goodness knows how long inching our way along with the rest of the nose to tail traffic. We were therefore very relieved to arrive at our destination and put the kettle on!

    The stellplatz was adjacent to a city park in which there were a myriad of tracks. On an evening stroll we discovered mature deciduous woodland, a small lake and an open stretch of well mown grassland, at the head of which was Brasschaat Castle; a country home currently hosting a wedding reception. It was a lovely location and we were very happy to be given access to the grounds on our free overnight stay!

    Brecht, Belgium

    June 27, 2018 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    From our stopover close to Dunkerque in France we picked up some LPG and made our way into Belgium. The external temperature rose to 34°C in the sun as we retreated from the cooling coastal breeze and Poppy was very grateful for the air conditioning as we drove. We approached Belgium's 2nd city of Antwerp around 3:30pm and were caught up in a horrendous traffic jam for 2 hours. People were becoming impatient and soon after being passed by an unmarked police car, its officers directed us to the inside lane, as they set out cones around a lorry that had hit the side of a car we assumed had been lane hopping.

    Brecht was a small brown brick town not far from the motorway. Initially we couldn't find a suitable stopover, so pulled into a car park to check the phone. Just as we had given up and were starting to drive away, a local builder approached us and asked in English if we were looking for a camp ground! With his directions we were able to find the car park beside the park and library building. It had no facilities but 2 vans could stay free for up to 48 hours.

    Selecting a spot that would soon be shaded by tall trees, we were able to step out straight onto the grass. A wooden picnic bench (albeit with a bit of grafitti and chewing gum on it) stood nearby and Vicky sat out with Poppy in the warmth of the evening. Will soon joined them with some delicious cool oysters, followed by veggie spag bol and a rasberry tart with a dolop of cream.

    The breeze had kept Poppy cool enough but she had become too tired to stay out. Back in the van she found it difficult to settle with the heat but with a combination of ice packs and dousing her in cool water, she eventually relaxed and we went for a stroll through the park and very functional looking town square with its council hall, steepled church and traditional statue of a local dignitary. The park was well maintained with an old petanque pitch surrounded by sculpted trees and a couple of fountains in the duck pond. Again, we felt very lucky to be invited to access these facilities in the van and although we didn't need anything, we treated ourselves to a couple of tarts at the bakers the following morning, in order to make a small contribution to the town.
