Winding down the Whirlwind...

August 25, 2008

This morning we did some final packing and then went over to Aunt Janis and Uncle Alfred’s for a quick visit. I had the opportunity to see their vineyards and beautiful home. We were also treated to homemade limoncello (a lemon liqueur) and lemon sorbet. I had tried limoncello on the cruise and was not a fan but Aunt Janis’ version won me over! It still left a warm (okay, very warm) trail down to my stomach, but smooth and delicious! Now that I have tried her lemon sorbet, I have no doubt that she will be able to concoct the lemon and ginger sorbet we tried in Gozo. No pressure! We returned home for a final lunch before packing up the cars and heading to the airport. We ran into several of Paula’s colleagues also returning to Brussels and sat around waiting for our flight to be called. It is the final part of Paula’s journey while mine ends tomorrow when I return back to Florida. We arrived to much cooler weather here in Brussels and went for a late supper before heading back to the flat so I could repack my luggage, enjoy some apple tea from Istanbul and trade photos. Tomorrow we buy chocoloate (the genuine Belgian article) before heading to the airport where I begin my trek home. Unbelievable…
