I have crossed the ocean and arrived in Belgium – Wooo! Once I have posted this I can go eat chocolate and waffles and drink beer! – Double Wooo! I had thought that having already put up a blog about crossing the oceans writing a second one would be more difficult, that there wouldn’t be […]Continue Reading... 7 Comments.
