I have a recording of Jacques Brel's original version and also one by Joan Collins and one by a Greek singer Nana Mouskouri. Whenever I hear the song I become a bit homesick. I still think of Belgium as my second home.

I love beaches, and that effect on the sand reminds me of one of the reasons why!

yea, it'd take like 6 hours to drive to the ocean. there are some pretty big lakes that aren't as far but lakes aren't as much fun. =[

Of course it'd be :) If you like culture and good food, it's be a good place... and nature if you have some more time, because the cities are the interest points :)

Take careee!

Thanks a lot! :D As well for the favourite!

In love is a big word, my previous camera wasn't that bad, but the D80 has slightly more features, and works better in bad lighting... I'm really happy of the buy :) But my heart was more conquered by the D200, but not my wallet :p

Que La Panne? Chiaaaaant! :p Ostende est plus joli et il y a bcp plus a faire (de manière culturelle, et aussi pour les sorties). Mais La Panne n'est pas mal non plus :) J'ai encore fais un stage là dans l'office du tourisme...
