I love the Ardennes

It's become somewhat of a tradition for us over Easter - hiring a house in the Ardennes. This time we stayed in Mirwart (famous for its castle that looks more like a stately house rather than something from a fairytale). The Ardennes are special for us living in the Netherlands for two reasons 1) It is mountainous and 2) It is really possible to get away from other people and feel like you are alone in the wild.

This year we weren't snowed it, there was just a little rain but when the sun came out it was actually quite pleasant. We ate at a super fancy michelin restaurant (AUBERGE DU GRANDGOUSIER), had a yummy five course meal, watched lots of T.V, went on one or two walks, and I ate more chocolate in one sitting than the entire year. Hope you all had a great Easter.
