... the outside of town, through pretty tree-covered paths and past majestical lakes (the Lake of Love in fact).



We stopped off for chocolate and banana waffles along the way (a specialty in Belgium) and found ourselves at a little cafe (Vero Caffe) in one of the back streets. Oh. My. God. The BEST double espresso we have had in a long time. It would rival the best places in Brisbane. ...

After returning to the Hotel, I took my Netbook to the Lobby to catch up on E-mail and try to make at least a short entry to my Blog. I spent about 1.5 hours and decided to go for dinner at the historic Vlissinghe Pub & Café, which is only a short walk from the Hotel.
