    Ugh, the very mention of that vile substance brings me out in sweats.

    I'll be in Belgium around that time, but remains to be seen whether I can get away from the family.

    How to get there by plane

    Airport Brussels (Zavemtem), than by train from the airport:
    ! Don't take the airport "Brussels South", because that's the Belgian City of Charleroi (3 hours by bus from the capital Brussels)!

    How to get there by train


    Brussel - Leuven: one-way-ticket train 2nd class is € 5

    Best is to buy a one-way-ticket from Brussels to Leuven and the second day when you return you buy an one-way-ticket to Brussels, because a two-way-ticket is exactly the double, but you have to use it on the same day.

    Train from Brussels to Leuven is easy: there are 3 stations in Brussel, South, Central and North. Get on a train in one of these stations, once you have passed the 3 Brussels stations, the next one is Leuven (takes about 22 26 minutes).

    For train tickets: on the week-ends you can get a week-end ticket which you can use from Friday 19:00 'till Sunday 23:59 (to and fro) and which costs about as normal one-way fare.

    To paraphrase Walter Scott, and the valiant Brian de Bois-Guilbert, it shall be universally known then that "the cowardly Anglo-Saxon knights refused to enter the tournament, because they had cooler stuff to do". (We know how that ended for him, of course.)


    :ohno:

    Seriously, too bad. Would have enjoyed to have that chocolate shake with you that we could not have last year. (Reading a book "Belgium, Land of Chocolate" this week. Seems some integral part of the Belgarian culture was lost to me last year.)

    The immediate future:

    I can probably attend on friday and saturday. Have a bit of a date on saturday night though so... Probably won't be joining for glorious beers and fun fair shenanigans.

    Edit: should I bring a heavy Gi vest? Or will the grappling be no Gi?

    There will be at least 2 people there with no Gi, so... whatever you want.

    Hell, I'm just bringing a can of olive oil and a stick of butter.
