|Gig and the kids in the Grund|
During her visit, we managed to take Gigi to four different countries.
To start off, we took a trip to (1) Trier, Germany. We'd been there before but this time we did one of those Hop-On Hop-Off bus trips, and the kids loved it. It took us by the ancient Roman ruins and then up to the top of the hill which provided a spectacular view (sorry, no pictures).
Then, we headed to (2) Bruges, Belgium. What a beautiful place! Even Will, who's not easily impressed these days, loved it. The whole town looked like a postcard:
One of the highlights was a horse and carriage ride. Yes, it's corny but the kids loved it. I did too, actually. Here's the horse. He had a name but I forgot it:
The jostling of the carriage didn't do much for my pictures, since my camera battery died and I had to rely on my iPhone. So most of my pictures look like this:
But you can see how much fun the kids are having:
It afforded beautiful views of the architecture:
And this cute dog the guide said was always perched on this windowsill:
The kids also loved our hotel:
Will was particularly fond of this little critter on the staircase:
We loved Bruges.
We want to go back!!
