Herent Belgium

 
We're staying in a town called Herent, in Belgium. Our apartment is in a renovated manor house on a working farm (goats, chickens, ponies, cat).

Herent is a few kilometers north of Leuvan and only 20 minutes from Jane, Michael and our new granddaughter Zoë.

It's an easy drive back and forth except for the snow and Belgium drivers. Today we're off to our first babysitting job!!!!

  1. It's an easy drive back and forth except for the snow and Belgium drivers.

    Is it hard to drive in the snow in Belgium because of the snow (different from Toronto's), a poorly-winterized car, or mainly the low winter-driving-skills of many other drivers?

    I thought Canadians weren't allowed to complain about driving in the snow when in other countries (with the possible exceptions of Finland and Russia).
