The Best beer in the world, is...

In Belgium of course!! and is the Westvleteren 12 produced by Trappist monks from the Saint Sixtus Abbey! which is located in the little town of Westvleteren ! Which is damn hard to get! as you can only buy it from the Monks! once or twice a year...

I can tell you first hand! it is a pretty nice beer.. but watch out since it has 12 degrees of alcohol! Before coming to Belgium I really didn't like beer at all... but here in the country of beer... you always end up finding one that is pretty nice :)

Westvleteren is quite a drive from Brussels but well worth!

is in the middle of nowhere :) but if its sunny is quite nice !

almost there!!!!

here it is! the number one beer!!!

you can snack a croque-monsieur sandwich with pineapple and yummy cheese,

and for dessert.... apple pie with ice cream! the prefect ending!

and then ? sit back and enjoy your Westvleteren in a sunny day!!!

Remembering Prague

Working and studying in part time for almost 2 year has been quite demanding! But the reward is coming!! we are 3 months away from our wedding and a well deserved time off!!

My personal therapy to keep focus and move forward is to revisit our travel albums :)

This week I was getting inspired with the trip we did in July 2009 to the amazing city of Prague! which I simply loved!! and its the country of my favorite artist Mucha :)

The famous Astronomical Clock,

statues in the famous Charles Bridge,

Apparently touching the statue is a Prague ritual, It is supposed to bring good luck and to ensure that you return to Prague soon.

The impressive St. Vitus Cathedral,

Amazing Mucha's stained glass window inside the St. Vitus Cathedral,

Mucha's paintings in the Prague's Municipal House,

Prague is an amazing city!!

Prague is a beautiful city without any doubt! plus there is a lot of really nice jazz clubs :)
We stayed at the Hotel William which has a very particular decor :) kind of princess style ehhehe but it was pretty good, close to the Charles bridge and had a pretty nice price :)
