This next week or two will be filled with a lot of tears, and "lasts". Today was the last train ride for awhile. Since it was a public holiday, we set off to Antwerp, via train, to an aquarium.
I had forgotten how impressive the station is at Antwerp Central, and just walking through makes it well worth the effort to haul 4 kids there.
When at the end, in the gift shop, the kids asked if they might buy something, I suggested a post card to write to dad. They decided against postcards, or any purchase, stating that they'd rather save the money and put it towards a return trip to Belgium in the future. 
The only comfort in leaving is to know that we can come back to visit friends and places here that we truly love.
