    Catching our breath

    April 23, 2017 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    We've been a little remiss lately about posting. We're not afraid to admit it ... we're getting tired. We had our first less than stellar Airbnb experience in Auvers, the town from which we visited the Normandy beaches. Let's just say the best part was the little goslings, though the mother goose was terrifying.

    We left a day early and had a surprise stay in Cambrai. We loved our 8th floor studio with a view of some WWI (we think) ruins. We had one of our better meals yet at a hole in the wall restaurant recommended by our host and left for Belgium feeling considerably better.

    We are staying in a little vacation home in a development up in the hills. Very comfortable. We are grateful for the pellet stove, however, because it's damp and low 50's. Maybe 40's. It's 25 minutes to Dinant which is a beautiful little town right on the River Meuse and I would not have thought to go there. We will try for some photos tomorrow.

    But we are getting tired. More and more inclined to just sit. In a few days we will have been on the road for 6 months. Hopefully we'll get a second wind as we still have over 5 weeks til we head back to the states.

    Anyway, the Belgian beer is definitely worth the trip and we're right on the Beer Trail. We're toasting to all our friends and family who are loyally keeping us company as we wander.
