Hello friends , we’ve been back from our travels for one whole week we’ve been so busy here mainly with the garden you wouldn’t believe how much things had grown it was like a jungle , we are still trying to get on top of it besides picking Blackcurrants ,Peas , Strawberries etc. I’m so glad we had someone in to mow the lawns ..

We had a wonderful holiday ,we did and saw so many amazing places I will try to list some with photos .

Our first few days were spent in Brugge with it’s many waterways ,thanks you for advising the boat trip Mushy we very much enjoyed that .


Viadem


Larachette


Damme


Sorry I can’t give details of individual places it would take to long .
Luxembourg an amazing place with it’s Casements


The Casements with it’s long underground galleries carved out to a depth of 40 metres were used during two world wars, the Casements were used not only to protect thousands of people but also artillery and weapons ,workshops , kitchens bakeries ,slaughterhouses -an underground city !
The market in the City centre with it’s dazzling array of plants/flowers /cheeses etc. kept me occupied for sometime , I only managed to sneak one plant in my bag .. Honest :o)


I think I’d better finish here and carry on in a part two , next stop Strasbourg …..

Thanks Dave I'm sorting through some more photos now ! we have changed our Rasberries this year Paul we had half summer and half autumn ,the autumn ones were so much bigger and tastier we decided to take out the summer ones and replaced them with the autumn ones ... I can't remember the name I have it written down somewhere ....

Terrific blog, Amy, cheese and plants - two of my favourite things, lucky you :) I had to skip over the caverns quickly as I don't do underground - very brave of you to go down there and hard to imagine people having to live and work down there during WW2. Fascinating blog, and I love the view through the window. Glad you had such a good time.

Thanks Gee I'm glad you enjoyed it I don't mind you skipping the caverns you wouldn't have liked them I'm sure it would have been quite easy to get lost it felt like a maze also it was on different levels which meant going up and down . the sun felt good when we came out !

Late as usual, wonderful photos, a most interesting place to visit, you must have been quite high up in picture 9, what a view!! I would not enjoy the casements, very claustrophobic!! other than that a fascinating place to visit.

Thanks Angela , no 9 was from the casements it's a strange place with miles of tunnels on different levels above ground and below , you almost need a ball of string and a stick of chalk to find your way back :o)

I can't believe I missed your holiday Photo's Amy..! and we weren't away either..sorry..
Well what beautiful places you went to,I remember a boat trip in Brugge as well.so relaxing..and those caves certainly make you think of the people who used them.. a daunting thought...doesn't their produce always look so appealing and attractive? ah well,they have good taste :o) off to look at part two now...
