    • Few hours to spare between Zaventem and Charlerois.

      Brussels Apr 15, 2015 at 1:14 AM

      I will be dropping a friend at Zaventem (2pm flight) and then another two friends at Charlerois (6pm flight). I don't want the "Charlerois friends" to just wait at the airport for half a day so I want to show them some more of Belgium. I have a problem though with what I can do in this time frame somewhere between those 2 airports.
      For now the best I can think of is Nivelles & Villers-la-Ville.

      Any other ideas on where to go would be appreciated. Also some advise on where to spend those few hours if it would be raining.

      Thanks in advance for any tips!

      Weekend in June

      Brugge Mar 27, 2015 at 10:33 AM

      Hi all
      We're going to Brugge for a weekend in June. We are staying right in the centre and would like to enjoy nice Belgium food. Which restaurant would you recommend for traditional food aimed primarily at locals rather than tourists? We usually enjoy cosy little family restaurants or big busy brasseries with wood & shiny brass decor but not clean, sterile 'trendy' places. Please let me know if your recommendation is best for lunch or dinner or indeed both!
      Many thanks!

      travel pass or buy 10 tickets for short/long trip?

      Belgium Apr 4, 2015 at 11:48 AM

      I am still not sure which is worth it. I heard about the 10 trips for 76 Euro. but does it mean for example if I am going to bruge and stop by another city on the way, then I will have use 6 tickets for 2 people? for that day?

      there is also short trip 10 tickets for a price I remembered. does it only include bus trips in Brussels or anywhere in Belgium?

    • Train from Ghent to Amsterdam

      Antwerp Apr 2, 2015 at 6:19 PM

      We are about to book a train from Ghent Belgium to Amsterdam in April. It has one stopover in Antwerp to change from the IC train to Thalys train. There is only a 7 minute stopover, is this going to be enough time to get from IC train to Thalys train at Antwerp?

      tips - ideas

      Belgium Mar 28, 2015 at 3:47 PM


      We will be travelling to Belgium as part of our UK/Europe holiday in April. We will hire a car at Lille for 4 days and have booked accommodation in Yvpres. We will be arriving at Lille by Eurostar from London. (Should we book the Eurostar return ticket before we leave Australia or is it ok just to arrive at station and book). Preceding our Belgium visit we are on a cruise from Rome sailing into Anzac Cove on the morning of Anzac Day and spending two full days in the area.

      When we return to London from Belgium we have five days free, we will hire a car and thought we may head to the South Coast

      We have planned and organised the entire trip ourselves from internet and research and hope to fit in as much as we can but also want to enjoy everything and not just go, go, go. My husband is 69 and I am 66 and reasonably fit.

      Any advice/tips/ideas of any kind would be extremely welcome.

      Safe travels

      Belgium 10-journey passes

      Belgium Apr 10, 2015 at 4:14 AM

      I'm intending on purchasing a 2nd class, 10-journey pass that that The husband and I can share during our 8 days in the country, and which will cover us for just about everywhere we're going (math works). A couple of questions:

      One of our journeys involves a 6-minute change in Leuven (platform 8 to platform 3). Can we make it? If for some reason we can't, can we just take the next train as long as the final destination/type of train is the same? The instructions (which aren't exactly explicit) notes that if a mistake is made, don't cross it out - fill out the next lines - but we'll be out of space on the pass at that point.

    • Live in Mons or Tournai???

      by chace411 Online Now Oct 31, 2010 at 10:35 AM

      I may be moving to Hainaut Provence and am torn between where to live between Tournai and Mons. We definitely would prefer to live in a 80-100 m2 apartment and have access to the city. We do not want to live in a house.

      The wikipedia pages and pictures are not enough for me to tell the difference between…the amount of parks…trees and the slope of the surrounding land…i.e. rolling hills or just plain flat. I realize this is a tough question, but anything you could offer is greatly appreciated.

      Thank you very much

      by Iljagreen Online Now Dec 9, 2004 at 6:07 AM

      I'm interested in living and studying French in Tournai. It seems that the "heart of the french kingdom" seems like an appropriate place..... I do have already an intermediate knowledge of French (studied in Canada) but I'm looking at something more officiele.... Any suggestions...?

      VT meeting - Discovering Tournai ?

      by Djinn76 Online Now Apr 1, 2004 at 10:36 PM

      Nowadays Tournai is just a small provincial town and that's probably why too many people are overlooking it. However, this is the oldest town in Belgium and its past is extremely glorious (root of the French kingdom) !! The Cathedral and the Belfry are both on the World Heritage list. Not that I want to advertise it (just a little bit ;-), but have a look to my VT page to make your idea by yourself... Norali wish to vist it, Myriam suggested to organise a meeting and Mique agreed... well, who else is interested ? Waw, that would be my first VT meeting and I'd organise it ;-) Next question is when? May-June timeframe sounds ok to me: more chance to have some nice weather but well, we are in Belgium so we can never tell... Anyway even if it is raining like hell, with 8 museums, we could still easily find sth to do... "Les 4 corteges" takes place the second WE of june, this is a folkloric parade but, shame on me, I don't know much more, since this always falled during my exams time, I've never seen it... This year could be a nice opportunity ;-) Let me know your ideas, suggestions... JF
