Our First Visitor

Last week, our friend Victoria from Toronto came to stay with us. She was travelling through Europe for two months, and spent a week with us before finishing her trip off in London and heading home. As much as I've enjoyed meeting new people here, it was so refreshing seeing the familiar face of a dear friend.

The week flew by... and looking back, I think we struck a pretty good balance between sightseeing, going out, and just lounging around on the couch chatting. Though, I admit, our days mostly revolved around eating and drinking.

Here's a peek at our week:

Our first night together in Leuven
Laurent is excited to meet Victoria

Victoria, meet everyone. Everyone, meet Victoria. 
Sightseeing: St-Pieterskerk
Victoria's first waffle
Coffee breaks at outdoor cafes
Fancy cocktails

Not pictured: Lots of wine, chocolate, beer, laughter, and our couch (where we spent many hours curled up chatting). As nice as it has been emailing friends back home, chatting on skype or staying connected via facebook (where would we be without technology!?), you really can't beat kicking back on the couch with a good friend and a bottle of wine.

Thanks for visiting, Vic! We loved having you...  and I miss you already!
