...and which trip was best?! Doesn't take a genious to work that out!!!

I had two days in Mons mid-week for work.. And this past weekend (Sat/Sun) Heiko and I went to Antwerp with some friends and had a really EXCELLENT time!

On Saturday we visited Antwerp Zoo were we spent forever at the tiger enclosure!!!  :cheer:  In the evening we ate at a restaurant nearby the cathedral and escaped a brief spell of heavy rain as a storm passed over us. Thankfully the storm had cooled the temperature down by the time we walked back to the hotel, tho it was still very warm.

On Sunday we drove to Planckendael Zoo which is a really nice zoo to visit. It's really relaxing to wander around as the enclosures are larger than most zoos, there's lots of greenery especially trees, and concrete and cages are minimal. There are also lots of playareas for the kids so they were out of our way most of the time we were there! Enjoyed two cheetahs grooming each other, otters and monkeys posing for the crowds, a red panda in the open tucking into some grasses, and snow leopards lazing in the sun.

So.... you can probably tell we have a lot of photos... so look out for them appearing online!!  :scorpionblood:
