Long ride in

  So I had met Sylvie the last time in Dusseldorf, and she was all set to organize a meetup in Antwerp... and boy she did!! A couple of days after coming back from Dusseldorf, I found myself automatically added to the confirmed list for Antwerp! So what the heck, a good opportunity as any to visit another country!

The train ride started at around 11 from Zurich.. straight to Brussels Nord. It was long and tedious, about 8 hrs with a long stop in Luxembourg. 
And another 40 min ride to Antwerpen Centraal station in one of the local regional train. I met the gang in Qwik and had some quick burger fries dinner. We walked from ther to Groenplatz, next to the cathedral and chilled out over some awesome Belgian beers! Daniel helped me pick some of the interesting beers to try.

Next up... clubbing. In the old town part still, we just walked over and shook booties till like 3 am I guess. Some of the guys left earlier and I joined them later at Peter's house. The booze flowed again once we were settled in. We were all being drunk and joking around... I got knighted by Peter and his sword. Slowly started to pass out. Martin was leaving soon in a few hours. I slept on the floor next to mighty snoring Alex. Good thing we were piss drunk or none of us would have slept a wink in all the snoring haha.
