A weekend in the Ardennes with the in-laws

The radio silence on every bit of media except some ‘Facebook liking’ was caused by a weekend in Belgium, nearby Durbuy. I’m not entirely sure if you can call a Friday to Wednesday period a weekend though.

My mother-in-law and father-in-law (the latter being largely responsible for getting me into whisky) organize a family weekend every year and a half or so. It started with some anniversary about five years ago and since then we’ve gone back to the same spot a couple more times.

There’s a lot of good stuff about the weekend, but as with many festivals, I’m going to stick to some photo updates from my phone.
