Unexpected trip to Eeklo, Belgium

February 18-24, 2014

We traveled to Eeklo, Belgium, to attend the funeral of my beloved aunt Annie, who passes away rather suddenly. She will always have a special place in my heart. And I will miss her.

It was good to catch up with family and good friends.

Meanwhile my mum was in hospital for previously scheduled, minor surgery, so we took the opportunity to visit her twice a day while there.

We contacted Landrover Garage Vernaeve in Gent to pick up some consumables for the car. We’d rang them on Wednesday and they had our things ready for us on Thursday. We handed out some cards with our travel blog and hopefully we’ll have a chance to stop by there when we get to Belgium with Sterlin in October.

Stefaan (my brother) kept me informed of our mum’s condition and after a some additional minor surgery, all is now well and we are looking forward to her going home in the next few days.
