Been following your thread since the beginning- really dig the photo's. I've enjoyed my couple of visits to Belgium  - not a bad place at all.

You were over there on a contract if I remember? Have you managed to stay permanently now?

You are correct. My two years would have come to an end at the end of August. Luckily, have signed an offer for a permanent position. The result being able to buy a panel van etc. All good. Loving Belgium and the people. My french still needs lots of work.

I bought this there, as a child somewhere in the previous century. Still have it, but much faded as can be seen.

Has been completely renovated. Very impressive. A big hit with British tourists.

And Swedish musicians.

Then I must make a plan to visit again.

Awesome news on getting the permanent position!  :thumleft:
