how sexy is the sound of those names? i entered saint waltrudis church with the intention of finding them both and holding them dear to my heart. i was stopped in my tracks by today's busy priest setting up an art show 'and would i gently step out of the way, thank you'.
i didn't find c&c, but i let myself slip into a town stroll mode instead. the campine town of herentals bathed in sunshine, luckily not too hot. a rather extraordinary family visit under my belt, i felt at home in this place too. i wondered why. it wasn't the fairground a(ttra)ction.
but i quickly understood this antwerp province town feels alot like the town i live in, same hickledy-pickledy architectural lay out and an interesting if unassuming city centre. add a romantic beguinage to the equation and i'm not complaining on a first time visit.
