Road Trip: Happy New Year from Belgium

One of the realities of making friends in the expatriate community while living abroad is a higher than average likelihood that friends will move on without you. The upside, of course, is that you have friends all over the world. Here are a few photos from our recent day trip to Gent:

Oh, and the chocolate? I'll try to bring back some for sharing, but I can't guarantee its safety on the trip home. 


  1. Oh Belgium looks so beautiful. What a nice way to welcome in the New Year! Happy New Year to everyone at your house. Miss you lots Oh and congrats on the Mac isn't it awesome love mine how cool that we both got one.

  2. There is the school of thought that when you have expat friends they leave so why invest time in them. My answer is that I would have missed out on wonderful people if I hadn't taken the time to know them and for that experience I will put with the sadness of their leaving. Still am thrilled, however you're still around for a while.
