Belgium Chocolates & Brussels Sprouts

Bonjour and Hallo, just back (since thursday) after a few days training in Belgium. The company decided to get each of the marketing departments together to train and bond :-) There was Portugal, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Germany, UK, Belgium and Ireland, talk about International Relations. HQ is in Brussels but we stayed in a place called Edegem near Antwerp.

Because it was such a short visit we didn't get to see much of the country. With 2 hours to spare before the flight on wednesday, Joke (pronounced Yoka) brought myself and two others to a town called Machelem near Brussels for a quick visit. She was brilliant, bringing us to the chocolate shop for pressies and then to a bar to taste the local beer, yummy!!! I got a a few photos with my phone of a beautiful square with the most fantastic buildings, the architecture was amazing!!








Crafteire was amazing, it was wonderful meeting up with the girls and making friends with some new faces :-) Unfortunatley the batteries died in my camera, so no photos. I'll have to rob them off everyone else :-) Roll on Crafteire 2008!
