    Spring has arrived, and we started visiting historical places again
    Last Sunday, we were in Tournai (Doornik).
    Here's a few pics !

    Reviving my old thread, since we visited another historical place yesterday.

    We were at the "Orval" Monastery, that some of you might know for it's beer and cheese as well.

    This is how the place looks ...









    Have a nice day,

    Health problems have kept us from traveling around much, but last weekend, we were in Leuven, and I shot a picture of the -still unfinished- Saint Peter's Church ...
