      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!

      Who were you?

      This is a long shot! Last July/August I asked for advice on this site for a suitable stop-over in Belgium. Someone suggested Durbuy and on his recommendation we booked a hotel there. We really, really loved it and had a fabulous few days there. I had never heard of the place before and was so glad to discover it.

      I intended thanking the person who made the suggestion but cannot find the post. I can find my post making the request and two replies but not the one suggesting Durbuy. It could have only been this site (Trip Advisor is the only other one I use.)

      Anyway, many thanks and - Durbuy is a lovely little town - a chateau, restaurants, pleasant shops, villagy atmosphere, river activities and the hotel we stayed in - Hotel Sanglier Des Ardennes, was great.

      What's going on there?

      Maybe the BeNeLux VT members can help me find an answer to this riddle: As I was touring the Ardenne river valleys last weekend, I was also trying to visit Durbuy. I did manage to enter the village, somewhat bewildered by the many cars that were parking well out of the place already. But then, as soon as I entered Durbuy -- boy, this IS a crowded place! Even though the houses looked very picturesque, I tried to get away from these masses as quickly as I could which proved difficult because there also was a first class traffic jam. What's the matter with this place? What makes it so popular that apparently all of Liege and half of Brussels plus a third of the Netherlands is squeezing into this tiny village???

      Are there still summer holidays in Belgium?

      Win,
      definitely coming back, but during less popular times
