Life in the South ( and country)

My kids... she worries so much

If you like the country, well let's say that the South might be kind of place you can enjoy. The summers are humid and hot, the winters are not too chilly, and most of the people are kind. However my favorite part is enjoying a ride along the peach orchards in summer, gorgeous south I love you so..

Fresh picked peaches
Speaking of old barns, can you see the lovely truck peaking?
This is my type of trip, less than 50 mph, country roads, windows rolled down, the peaches smell still in the air

Day Dreaming vacation In Bruge Belgium

The fisrt time I visited Bruges , I was 14 and it was in the summer of '93, it was love at fisrt sight, Bruges has been ever since in my dreams, last time I visted I took my whole- and small- family with me, we had the time of our lives, you can stroll in Bruges at 3 a.m whithout fear, it's clean streets, it's perfect charming canals leads to enchanted  inner gardens and historic buildings. This city has much more to offer, I promise you won't forget  the best  chocolate, fine lace boutiques, flavored beer, mussels and scargots, Bruges is sure a feast to the senses.
In case you plan to visit Belgium in summer or fall, consider taking at leat a day trip in Bruges, you won't regret it. Pictures from The Triptiek  B&B in the Heart of Bruges.
