    • 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?

      Hi fellow vt-ers, can someone help me to find a nice B&B in Tournai?
      I've searched the web already but could not find a B&B in Tournai itself.
      Hopefully you can help me out.
      Thanks in advance.

    • 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

    • Studying French in Tournai

      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
