Flying Home

We got up early, showered and ate breakfast and continued to try to stuff all our stuff into our little bags. Its a good thing we stayed at the airport – the two days of training around Belgium made us tired (yes, it was an American vacation, and maybe we’re getting too old for that). […]

Brugge

I finished Stiff – very good book, unique (needing no adjective) and entertaining. We walked from the hotel to the main market square and then visited the Basiliek van het Heilig Bloed (Basilica of the Holy Blood); its named that because it contains a relic in glass of, well, holy blood. Ticket to see the […]

Antwerp

We got up and had a good breakfast and then took a cab to the main art museum, the Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten. This is a must see museum, as they have some very famous works. The most interesting painting in my opinion was the Virgin and the Child by Jean Fouquet. Fouquet has […]

Departing for Antwerp

This trip was a good reading trip for me; between flights and the late nights and needing to relax before trying to sleep, I managed to finish Salon, by Jaida N’Ha Sandra and Jon Spayde, a book about the history and modern creation of salons, and The Art of the Start, by Guy Kawasaki, which […]

Flying home

We got up early and ate breakfast and continued to try to stuff all our stuff into our little bags. We got to the airport really early – we had lunch at a pub in Paddington Station, and caught the express train to Heathrow. We had to perform an emergency landing in Newfoundland because a […]

London

We got up late at 8 this morning after staying up late (for us at least) last night. We ate and went out walking to St. Pancras, a church local to our hotel. Its claim to fame is that it was built as a copy of the Erechtheoin that was on the Parthenon grounds. We […]

Bath

Well, Aviva is 50 today – guess she can join AARP finally. We got up (was Aviva a little slower?), ate and got to the Paddington train station to catch first class seats to Bath. I started reading a book about The Troubles, by Brian Feeney, in Northern Ireland that Aviva bought in Dublin. We […]

We got up and had a good breakfast. The wireless internet access isn’t working – oh well. Anyway, we got out and walked over to the St. Pancras station – its one of the oldest rail stations left in London and is being refit to be the end of the Channel Tunnel line. We then […]

We got up early and started figuring out what we want to do while we’re in London. I think we’re going to the National Gallery today and to Bath on Friday (a day trip!). Breakfast was okay – they had hard-boiled eggs, some cheese, croisants and cerials. We managed to get cleaned up and going. […]

Arriving in London

We ate, got cleaned up and rode out the airport. We had an inconsequential flight to London – the good news is that the plane was actually spacious. We took the high speed train from Heathrow to Paddington Station (15 minutes) and got a cab to our hotel. The weather is just wonderful – we’re […]
