We'll be leaving for Antwerp tomorrow, a short city trip to to relax and shop. 3 days in a first class hotel and we've booked a restaurant in advance for Friday evening. The weather promises to be fine so I'll do a lot of beer tasting :D

After we return I'll order this:



A display case for 24 (wide) watch bands. I've accumulated 20 and there are 10 more on my rotation. I'll show you the result next week! Cheers all!

Safe travels and enjoy the trip!

Plenty of sightseeing to do while there.... the Central Station, Museum Plantin-Moretus, etc.

I know, this must be the 18th time we go there :D To my dismay there's a very serious bomb thread at Antwerp Central Station right now and all rail traffic has been suspended :( We have train tickets because going by car is a disaster and the parking rates are insane. Dang! :mad:

Edit: it was a false alarm, some joker phoned in with a thread but after a thorough sweep nothing was found. I hope he or she burns in hell :mad: :mad: :mad:

It sure is! We go there 2-3 times a year. We had a great, great time and the weather was more than fine. I bought a kilo of hand made chocolates at my favourite place, Elisa :D. We are planning to go to Gent next time, it's an equally nice and historical city.

Very true. GoodWatch, if I remember correctly, the hotel across that plaza from the station is the Radisson, right?

Yes, Radisson Blu Astrid, we were on the eight floor, this photo was taken out of the breakfast room on the second floor.
