TB sweettangerine and I know each other from an organized trip in Peru (Sept./Oct. 2009). We kept in touch by e-mail and finally met each other again Aug 7th 2010 when Tania was visiting Breda, my home town in the Netherlands. As we had a great day we decided to meet  again soon, this time in Mechelen, Belgium.

After coffee with cake at Tania’s home we drove to Mechelen and started a nice walking tour. Tania wrote a blog about our ‘Day trippin’ in Mechelen’: http://www.travbuddy.com/travel-blogs/77693/beautiful-sunny-day-Mechelen-1

In sweettangerine’s blog you can read about all monuments which we have visited. One of the highlights was climbing the big tower, ‘Tour de Saint-Rombaut’.

Many of my photos will be about the same J We had a great day, were very lucky with the weather and had the opportunity to visit (or walk by) many interesting places in Mechelen.

After all the walking, climbing and chatting Tania invited me for a lovely dinner! Thanks again!

As far as I know by now we’ll meet again in Amsterdam, Sept 25th 2010.

You can certainly use a camera. I like the idea of two of my friends enjoying this together.
