Mons, Belgium

united_kingdomMons is a francophone city in Belgium. It was lovely to visit, not just because of the main sights, but also because it was Sunday morning and the streets were empty and almost no traffic.


romania_flagMons e un oras in partea francofona a Belgiei. A fost tare draguta plimbarea mai ales ca duminica dimineata orasul era gol, fara trafic sau oameni pe strazi.

    • Yes, it’s true, especially the smaller cities have a very calm and relaxed atmosphere. And the architecture adds to this charm. It’s a lovely little country this Belgium ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Beautiful photos! I especially love the trees with knitted blouses. I saw something similar for the first time in Germany last Christmas and it made me laugh ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. We’ve been so desperate for spring in this part of Canada. Your photos have made the anticipation that much more wonderful. We’re getting there … slowly! The knitting is always such a treat to see. I’ve been surprised by bits of it here and there in my town, but nothing as colourful and fantastic as this.
