  1. It would be cool to explore that Belgium town.
    Now I'm hungry...

  2. Bringing in the New Year at a hotel spa -- how lovely! And that pumpkin ravioli looks SO good!

  3. I want to cozy up to that fireplace right about now.

  4. Er is hier behoorlijk wat gefeest! Proficiat met al die verjaardagen enz. Die koffie ziet er bekoorlijk uit en sommige van die schotels, daar zou ik ook niet neen tegen zeggen!

  5. love the pics, especially the food ones :)

  6. The spas look lovely! I like the idea of an "energetic" tea! I bet the Greek Meze was excellent. I'm very fond of Egyptian mezza, too -- a little bit of everything (but not seafood). Thanks for sharing. :)

  7. Pumpkin ravioli? What did it taste like?

    Beautiful photos. Are you on Pinterest?

  8. I love your "life in pictures"... especially the doggie sketch (wish I could draw...) and the frothy beverage...
    I love a good cappuccino (which can be difficult to find)... and a spa visit is the ultimate in self-indulgence...
