Ah, at it again. Managed to squeeze another day trip in before spring break. This time a friend and I headed to Bouillon, Belgium. It is a picturesque, small town about an hour away from Lux City. Bouillon sits right near the French border in the Ardennes region of Belgium. It boasts an enormous castle, Château de Bouillon, that holds daily raptor shows.
We arrived in town, got our bearings and headed to a charming boulangerie for a brioche and a coffee creme. After that we visited the castle and stayed for the raptor show! The star of the show was an enormous condor, although I preferred the owls. There was a barn owl and 2 eagle owls. All the birds wowed the crowd by flying frightfully low over the stands. After the show we had delicious warm goat cheese salads for lunch, stopped by the boulangerie to buy some bread, and then headed back to school to pick-up the kids.An absolutely wonderful day.
p.s. you can find me here today.
