Noel 2009 - Be- Greece

In belgium:

Sarah arrived a bit exhausted 8 h later than scheduled because she missed her plane connection in Atlanta due to delays, and had to fly to Amsterdam instead of Brussels, which revealed to be a good solution, also brussels airport closed the next day due to large amounts of snow on the tracks. Her bag did not make it at the same time, she had to wait 6 days before getting it, just on xmas day! the day before our departure to Greece...

Snow, patinoire in front of the house

Bruxelles, grand place, ice skating, le marche de noel.

where is little jesus? ah maybe not yet born ;)

resto with Estelle, Audrey and Anton in Bruxelles.

Tournai, la cathedrale, le tresor de la cathedrale, les tapisseries.

horse sausages.. heuu bof

coin coin

les ascenceurs hydrauliques de Stépy-Thieux from 19th century on the canal du centre.

Noel! the crazy gift lottery! we had to pick cards and get the smaller number... but my sister and husband did not stop getting all the little gifts! aaahhhhh Sarah finally picked the lowest card number, she got so excited that she tried to open the package fast but she did not know it was a pot of confiture and it opened and spilled on her knees... oops

Greece trip.

Sarah! a new friend? the reconstitution of an old text, the original stone is darker.

really nice weather in there!



the canal of corinth : 6.5 km long, at its top, the cliffs are 90m above sea water level. dug in the 30's

that s what you get for eating too much feta cheese... the bed bends with your butt s weight and you get a big belly

what is her preferred color?

the nightmare of street workers: the random discovery of ruins of houses everytime they dig !

Old Corinth

NB: contrary to what touristic guides say, the museum & archeological site of old corinth CLOSE at 15h00 and not 17h00!! we missed it because of that.

Video part 1/3: in Belgium + Greece (delphi & acrocorinth & old corinth & the canal)


you must see that video: the replacement of the guards of the Greek parlement.

the temple of xxx one of the 100 columns fell in the 19th century during a big storm... the arch of Adrian it has funny writings :)

the resto, not eating alone ;)

National greek archeological museum

oops she fell asleep after so much walking. And 2 h earlier she told me she was ready to walk more in the cute little streets of Athens ;)


Cap Sounion, the temple of Poseidon

here is a picture for the touristic guides: NO the temple of poseidon is no opened everyday!! notably it is closed on 1st january. thank you Michelin.

Departure of Sarah:

after a terrorist tried to explode himself over Detroit,Mi, the security was increased in airports, only 1 bag was therefore allowed in cabin. Sarah had to pay an extra of 50 euros to get the bag checked in. funny that she saw some people with 2 bags in the plane... the airline companies are inconsistant!
