welcome to Antwerp Belgium

Arriving in Antwerp is a pleasant experience… at least the train station is amazing

World’s tiniest car… I seem to be the only person in Europe that is impressed with it 😛

When I got up I decided to look for the world’s best beer, went over to the elevator and pressed the button. As the elevator showed up, so did a man from around the corner. I waited for the door to close before attacking my pray. “Hey! Where you from?” No escaping this one buddy 😉

The plan worked! We ended up friend if course, looking for this beer together was unsuccessfully… but he suggested a local spot that had great prices, food and beer.

Anyways it was a really great adventure !

  1. Please let us all know when you have connected with Don Jay…He’s looking for you at the airport… don’t forget he’s not as tall as your dad…

    1. I had no internet to contact Don or read/write any posts.
      Thanks to Skype being able to load offline I was able to get his phone number, finding someone who would let me make a long distance number involved pinning down the people responsible for losing my luggage.

  2. probably the reason that you like churches is the same reason that I liked churches when I was in Europe they are the epitome of the history of the town in architecture. you’ll see one in Montreal like it but in Europe you’ll see hundreds that are superior to our best architecture of the time and some of them have amazing acoustic and wonderful atmospheres. they broke the hustle and bustle of the cities for me.
