FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE



more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.





1. I started the week with preparing my trip to Egypt, which included laundry, shopping, making lists etc.

2. The mussel season started here in Belgium and as it is one of the typical Belgian plates, I went with Dominique eating our first mussels ! It was delicious. As the weather was sunny we had a cup of coffee at the Waterloo Lion and could even sit outside. There were many tourists from all over the world to see where Napoleon had lost his battle.

3. Spending the whole day or nearly at my computer transferring all things I need on my little notebook which I always take with me when I am on holidays.

4/5 After having gotten up at 4 am, to be at the airport at 5.30, we arrived finally in Hurghada without any delay. But then the troubles started but I will report about this tomorrow, now I am so tired that we will just go for supper and then fall into our beds !

One thing I can tell you already, when you go to North Africa you have to be armed with a lot of patience !! "In a moment" can easily mean in an hour !

Sorry if I am short in commenting, getting Internet was also a whole story !

Omw, Gattina! Yes, Africa time is like no other time in the world! My husband often grits his teeth at the "in a moment" phrase. Hope you're having a good rest and ready to share Egypt with us. Yes, I agree with Cezar and Leia above: you're almost Egyptian already! Have a WONDERFUL sunny holiday. Jo

We have had the joy of trying to get internet connection while travelling. That is why I don't bother much but Bill perseveres. USA was definitely the best place. We had free wifi connection everywhere we went. Not in Australia.

When Hubby was flying he often was in Brussels. He loved the mussels. So he would joke "Mussels in Brussels" makes a happy pilot!

I really love mussels, with french fries....oh I can taste them in my watering mouth....
Have a nice trip, and take lots of pics.

When we lived on the east coast things were done yesterday
On the west coast they are more laid back and it is very irritating. Its like nothing matters.
Times change and there is nothing we can do lol

Hi, back from my travels and trying to catch up with all my favourite bloggers. I see that as I arrive home you have just departed, however unlike you I had a blogging break while I was away. :)

Hope all goes well and that you enjoy your holiday. I try not to let mishaps spoil my fun and I know you won't either.
