Last weekend, Meredith and I took off for a long mother/daughter weekend to a new country: Belgium. Land of waffles, fries, mussels, beer, and chocolate. We had a wonderful time traveling together, exploring Brussels and Bruges. The weather was clear and very, very warm. We enjoyed museums, parks, canals, and of course, the food. Meredith is becoming quite adept at navigating around Europe, be it in airports, train stations, or subways and trams. She’s developing a keen sense of direction and observation. She’s a great travel partner, and I hope we get more opportunities for adventure.
