VTT

I've been thinking about how to do VTT this week. March has been a pretty busy month in our household. On top of that, we were away last week. Very far away ;-) So the Vintage Things I want to share with you are about our time away.

We live in a country that has it's beginning a couple of hundred years ago. Last week I traveled with my dear hubby on a business trip to Belgium. Now THAT is an old country -

It is amazing to me that some of these building were built in the 1400's.


I believe this building on the right is a newer one. Built in the 1600's.

When I was younger, I did a lot of traveling. I never got to go to this interesting place. I am not sure what the buildings were made of back then, but they seem stronger and better built than some of today's.

I love that Old World architecture. I had that same feeling when we visited Germany several years ago. It makes you realize just how young our country is in comparison.

Beautiful buildings, what a great feeling of history. You are so right, we forget that our country is just a baby in comparison to the world. Have a Happy Easter!

Really beautiful buildings!!! And great pictures too.
When I go home to see my family in Italy, I am amazed too to think that certain buildings are as old as 2000 years old, like the Colosseo in Rome: it gives me chills to think I walked where Julius Caesar walked, the same stones!!! wow...
