      Dialing a mobile in Belgium

      Brussels Nov 3, 2016 at 2:15 AM

      I am planning a trip to Brussels. Having communicqated with the landlady by e-mail, I have now a problem with her phone number - I guess something is missing.
      The number starts with +32 for Belgium, then it has 2 for Brussels, and then seven digitals. But it doesn't go!
      I tried to put in '4' - as Wikipedia advises - no result
      It's the first time I have such a problem, all other numbers I dial from another country - in France or Sweden, for example - function OK

    • Doubts Regarding Visa and Return Flight

      Belgium Nov 12, 2016 at 6:22 PM

      Hello everyone! I'm planning to go to Belgium as a volunteer for six months with a long-stay visa. After finishing my job I would like to travel in Eastern Europe for two months. My question is whether I'm allowed to get a Schengen Travel Visa after my work visa expires, or if I have to leave the zone immediately? I've read on other sites that it can be possible to leave the area for a few days and then enter again, so it would be possible to travel for 90 days. What is the truth?

      My other doubt is regarding my return flight. Since I'm planning to stay for eight months in Europe I think that a cheap return flight could be difficult to find such in advance. Is it possible to buy the ticket once I'm there or does people entering Belgium require to have a return flight?

      Thanks!

      Do-it-yourself trip to Brussels

      Brussels Nov 3, 2016 at 2:57 AM

      Trying Home Exchange - anyone knows where Avenue des Merles at Woluwé Saint Pierre is?
      I checked internet maps, it appears to be a 1 - 2 storey suburb about 30 - 40 minutes both from the airport and Brussels centre.
      Thank God, there is metro, and it looks like a direct line to Grand Place etc.
      I wonder if it's feasible to plan a day trip to Brugge?
      I do not know much about Brussels, unfortunately, and will hardly be an expert before I get there. For this reason I expect three days will be enough for me to see the main attractions. But I have about 10 days in May, must figure out what to do.
      By the way, do they have a May 1 day off? - In France I once saw that the transportation does not function as everyone holds a meeting! And then May 8 - fireworks or something?

      Sacred Heart Statue

      by V.Heywood Online Now Oct 14, 2010 at 7:46 AM

      There is a statue of the Sacred Heart on the alter of our little Oratory commemorating the lads from what was then called 'Kingstown' (now named Dún Laoghaire) County Dublin, Ireland, who were killed in the 1st World War in the trenches and at the Battle of Ypres. The little Oratory is one of Ireland's treasures as its Celtic Revival Murals, painted by Sister Concepta Lynch, are unique.

      The Dominican Sisters tell me that the statue came from the town in Flanders where the Irish soldiers of the Irish Guards where billeted. They didn't know exactly where. Helped to research this question I have found that the Statue may have been sent from Poperinge; I've noted in your photo of the Church interior that the Altar is without a statue.

      My question is: Would any member of Poperinge Church congregation be able to confirm my theory by searching the church archives?

      I would be most grateful if I could be informed as to whether my hunch is correct.
