Mons, Belgium

This afternoon I left the office with a coworker and we drove to Belgium. Our meeting with the customer is first thing tomorrow morning. It was an easy drive and we were passing Antwerp and Brussels in no time. After another 30 minutes we pulled off the highway, following the sat nav system in the car.

We pulled onto a main road and drove a while. Then we pulled onto a side road and drove for a while. Then we pulled onto a tiny country road and drove (carefully) for a while. Where oh where was this hotel???
I couldn't imagine this was a good sign. The hotel only has 5 rooms and couldn't be farther from somewhere than it was. Thankfully, this is what we found...







Good it's pretty. In July I expect to be here for about 3 weeks. Alas, I would trade roses and gardens for.... something (anything) to do.

Jeez you're right it's beautiful, maybe not if you have to stay there for 3 weeks, nothing for miles and miles, but good enough for a romantic getaway (light bulb moment).

Am a bit worried about that fire exit though ;-)

The place looks great ! I'm just sorry for you and Nancy that she appearantly isn't the coworker that's there with you.... :-) Vincent and I will be in Belgium at the end of June, staying in a house with no heating and only cold water, how's that for romance.........

Nancy, the fire exit involved only a short drop to the roof... but from there I have no clue where they expected people to flee too.

Irene, no hot water? Do you also have to carry the water in buckets from the river?

Theresa, thanks. It was a great day!
