Our 1st Anniversary...

Which we spent in Bouillon. Bouillon is beautiful city along the Semois river in the Belgian province of Luxembourg. The drive from Sterrebeek could not have been easier only taking about 90 minutes. We arrived in the Ardennes early Saturday morning to a light mist.

Bouillon is home to Château-Fort de Bouillon. The Château is famous for being used to finiance the 1st Crusades. The Château was also the home of Godefroy of Bouillon who became the 1st ruler of the Kingdom of Jerusalem.

Along with many tunnels...

And Dungeons

Along with some great views.

Once we finished with the Château we walked around town and took some more pictures then enjoyed a great meal at the Vieille Ardennes.

We then headed to our hotel and called it a night. In the morning we headed on our bike tour of the local area as well as some local brew.

The tour was called the Greedy Excursion 40km VTT. We set of from Bouillon around 10:30am and arrived at the 1st stop within the hour.

After some coffee and cakes we set off again.

Stopping to take pictures along the way. Here is Jane standing on the edge of a cliff.

Me enjoying some Sangría.

It's so nice to see a new post again. Thanks for sharing your anniversary trip! Dad and I are finally getting around to making your wedding album. We have spent most of the long weekend printing out, replacing ink, fixing the power source, know how it goes. This is why most people go to Black's and have them do the photos!! We're enjoying the memories of that special evening and wishing you all best love.

Glad to see you are doing well =o)!
