Our Route around Europe

Our Route around Europe

Saturday, February 11

Belgium - done!

After the first night in the lovely Novotel, followed by a huge spread of possibilities for breakfast, we made it to our first venue, St Rumbold's Cathedral in Mechelin. A very generous welcome, and a spacious acoustic greeted us, along with an organ replete with faults and mechanical failings! Mr Palmer did a sterling job negotiating its traps, and the choir sang to an audience of just over 200, including visitors from Malta and Russia!

A long coach journey followed, arriving in our twin-town of Marburg, and our second hearty, hot meal of the day.

Sleep time!
