Last weekend, I spent some quality time with my three best girlfriends in the Ardennes, the most well-known forested area in Belgium. To reminisce over the wonderful memories we made, I thought it’d be a cool idea to make a photo report. Here are some photos that made it to the family album. The pictures are a combination of three locations: Spa, Lierneux and La-Roche-en-Ardenne.
It’s funny how you don’t see the falling of the leaves
but the barrenness of the trees surprises
It’s funny how you don’t see the light slipping away
but yet you notice the darkness of the hour
It’s funny how you don’t observe the days getting shorter
but evenings have never felt so long
It’s funny how you don’t notice the first moment you put on a scarf
until you feel the sudden chill creeping up your spine
It’s funny, the way the colours evolve,
the seasons change,
and time slipping away,
It’s funny, how life catches up with you
While you are doing dishes and deciding what to have for dinner
While making lunch boxes and booking summer holidays
While riding trains and making ways through crowds
While folding laundry and putting memories in boxes
It’s funny, this whole ticking of the time
The way life just
Nice to meat you! … is what I could’ve said to this restaurant in Sint-Gillis in Brussels. The name doesn’t lie: this concept restaurant revolves all around meat balls. You can order 1 or 2 depending on how big the hole in your stomach is, and pair them with whatever sauce tickles your fancy. For the healthy ones amongst us, there’s salad to go with that, and for the others (me, who am I kidding?) there’s chips. The food is nice and the place is bright and open with lots of windows to people watch. Yet.. nothing really compares to Balls & Glory. A solid and deserving alternative, me thinks! You can also order their meals through Deliveroo!
