      Gnome statuary flipping the bird

      Brugge Jul 2, 2016 at 9:25 AM

      Where can we find garden statuaries of gnomes giving the finger? My husband saw them while we were on the City Tour bus, but failed to get the store name nor street name, nor get me aware so I may have paid attention.

    • Antwerp to Amsterdam Stopover?

      Antwerp Jul 2, 2016 at 6:41 AM

      We are going to Amsterdam from Antwerp via rail (and with backpacks...). Is there a place that would make for a good stopover day trip (with backpack storage and no overnight stay)?

      Thank you!

    • Charles Mertens, the man who worked to rebuild the castle of Beersel

      by seccotine Online Now Apr 6, 2012 at 12:12 PM

      I am working on the history of this beautiful castle and I was estonished when I visited last october 2011 : so little was said about Charles Mertens, this great man who worked so hard to transform the ruins into this splendid medieval construction.

      As if everything was due to Mr Pelgrims de Bigard !

      I have bought the old book - 1942 - written by Charles Mertens "Beersel et ses seigneurs" and reading it, there's no doubt this man devoted himself to the castle.

      Is there anybody who can give me a reason to explain this strange oblivion ?
      I would be delighted to read your answers.
      Thanks
