Barontoo's Blogspot

Welcome on the webblog of Barontoo, the first Belgian blog listed as a WAYMARK. I started this blog in July 2005 in my mothertongue Dutch. But since it is listed as a Waymark I continue to write my comments in English. So take a look at it, post somewhere a comment and do not forget to log it! To do so click on the 1st link in the left frame hereunder and click then on "Visit Waymark (Post log)". Thanks!

Visitors from Switzerland

This weekend we had guests: Manuela and Sandra, 2 lovely and friendly girls from Switzerland. They arrived from Paris by Thalys, the international high-speed train between Paris and Brussels riding at 300 km/h! They arrived at 10.40 AM on Saturday morning. First of all we visited the part of Brussels arround the royal palace and the "Grand Sablon". At 1 PM we went together with Nicole for a light lunch in a local Italian restaurant. Afterwards the girls went shopping in the Woluwe Shopping Center. In the evening we visited a Swiss restaurant in Brussels! We all enjoyed it very much.

Sandra, Manuela and ... Enzo
On Sunday morning the 2 girls woke up late in the morning, they were so glad that they could sleep in a great bed. We had our breakfast at 10.30 AM. Then we left home to visit the center of Brussels. We looked at the most important buildings, we saw Jeanneke Pis and of course Mannenke Pis and ended in a typical Brussels café on the market place, after admiring the old townhal and surrounding houses. We eat afterwards in the Opera House and then it was time to go to the Brussels Midi Station where we arrived just in time to put our visitors on the Thalys.
Both of us, my wife and I were very happy with their company during this 2 days. We all had together a good time. Auf Wiedersehen, Maunela und Sandra (hoffentlich in der Schweiz!)
