The weekly challenge from frizz: R for RETURN

This time last year we arrived here in Belgium because my husband was granted a bursary to come and do some research in his field of interest.  Originally we would have stayed for about 6 to 8 months but very soon he realised that more time was needed to reach the point where he could continue back home in South Africa.

Now we have reached the point where we start making plans for the final return . I will only be here for another 6 weeks

It was a wonderful experience.   Europe has so much more cultural history than we are used to.  Although hubby had a tight schedule and very limited time, we tried to visit as many places as possible.

Every place has a beauty of its own.  During our stay here in Belgium we missed the open skies and abundance of sunshine that we are so used to.


On the other hand we enjoyed and appreciated the change of seasons which in South Africa is definitely not as  noticeable as here.Image

And then for yet another R:  We will fly to Rome next week. I have never been there before and really look forward to it.

    Love your return story. R is for Rome also. It is a wonderful city to visit. Hope you can visit the Vatican also while you are there.

    You will love Rome, although I’ve not been there in winter. Enjoy. 🙂

    ROME is great, we’ve enjoyed to stay for a week … – many FIAT cars there and old architecture – and charming people …

    Rosie, daar is te veel in Rome om in ‘n week te sien, maar twee goed in Rome wat jy nie moet nalaat nie Villa Borghese, een van die mooiste parke op aarde en Trastevere (die authentic Roman quarter oorkant die rivier net Suid van Vatikaan). Dis nie so toerisme mal nie, die kos is die beste (en goedkoopste) en die Santa Maria is een van die oudste kerke in Rome. Geniet die most amazing stad in die wereld.
