Mr. Pigeon goes to Belgium

It's been a while since the last post but this time I have a decent excuse. Mr. Pigeon and I were on our own in Germany over Easter and so decided to go and see family in Brussels for a few days.

Here you can see Mr. Pigeon on the train to Frankfurt (both trains to Belgium were so typically German and efficient that we had to keep stopping because they were too early)...



Being in Belgium has obvious benefits...


...Pierre Marcolini - the best chocolates in the world EVER! Once you've had Marcolini it's hard to go back.

Unfortunately the packaging isn't very pigeon-friendly...



And it's absolutely impossible to choose a favourite...


Mmm...white chocolate and raspberry heart, Earl Grey tea and dark chocolate and violet. The good news is that there are also branches in London :D

In woolly news a new friend arrived for Mr.Pigeon in the post...all will be revealed next post!

The "pigeon in a bag" photo just made me LOL this morning.

Those chocolates look yummy.

Can't wait to see the new arrival.

The adventures of Mr P always made me laugh! Bubble enjoys many outings but my photography isn't great, will have to send you a pic of his knitted tank top, it keeps him nice and warm.

Generic Viagra I really like this blog because is a slightly atypical blog, since most of them are about nature workshops, and also I enjoy to read something about it.
