Lori arrived on Thursday and has not stopped moving since. She visited a cathedral and the castle, climbed the belfry, drank Belgian beer, ate a waffle, and tried the regional dish, gentse stoverij and that was just day one. The next day we drove through Holland to Monschau, Germany then drove to London for 2 nights and today we went to Brugge. She's been here 6 days and seen 5 countries. Thursday we are off to Paris for 2 nights and then Lori will fly solo to Amsterdam for one night before leaving us on Weds. Whew! She's going to need a vacation from her vacation!
We are all loving having her here...
