Het Gebaar

Happy to have my parents in Antwerp!

Yay! My parents are in Antwerp!

Before we head off to Italy, we made reservations at Het Gebaar to have an early birthday celebration for my mom. You may remember Het Gebaar from two other posts: 9 year anniversary and when I won the free brunch. Het Gebaar is the Michelin star restaurant from Roger Van Damme. Van Damme is most famous for his desserts, so we booked our reservation in the early afternoon for a sweet lunch!

Het Gebaar is located at the edge of the Botanical Gardens, so on our way we were able to take a stroll (posing for a few photos along the way). Normally my parents come in May, when the tulips are in bloom, so it was nice to show the gardens in the fall.
