MY WEEKLY WINNER - BLOGFRIEND VISIT
More participants here at Sarcastic Mom Weekly winners
My weekly winner pictures this week are without any doubt the visit I had from Diane coming from Norway together with her husband Rennie who was in Brussels for a buisiness meeting, so I didn't see him.
We had better things to do ! Diane took the train from Brussels to Waterloo, which only takes 25 min and I picked her up at the station. We recognized each other immediately and it was so much fun to meet her life.
First thing we did, we drove to the historical place of the Waterloo Battle and had a coffee and chatted and chatted and chatted .........
Then we bought our tickets to visit the Lion and the Panorama of the battle.
Diane studies the battle strategies
while Napoleon watches over her
The little tourist train was still empty and waiting for visitors to come
Diane decided to go up a few steps so that I could take a picture. But ten steps later she decided to climb all 253 steps up to the Lion and have a look over the battle fields. I had done this before several times and was too lazy. I watched her climbing !
a little greeting pause
and up she was !
and then the whole way down !
After the Lion we visited the panorama. It is very well done because you stand in the middle and around you the battle goes on with the sounds of the battle, arms, horses and screams.
and here we are in the middle of the battle field !
To make a little break in our touristic tour, we went to my home and had a little snack.
After that I took Diane to my favourite junk store, where we had quite some fun with all these nice or funny or strange things which are sold here.
Finally Diane decided to buy an antique coffee pot and a Madonna.
Then we visited the center of Waterloo and had the last coffee besides the Wellington museum in an old Tavern.
Time went by so fast in good company that we didn't even realize that it was already past 5 pm
and she had to go !
It was the first time I met a blogfriend and it really was very nice day ! Internet is finally a great invention, we would never have met without our blogs.
