A view on the Scheldt. Antwerp is close enough for a day trip from Brussels, but every time I go, I want to stay for a couple of days to get the full experience. Who’s in?
De Schelde wordt net buiten de stad een uniek natuurgebied met slikken en schorren... Wordt het een Gents Zwin?

The Scheldt becomes just outside the city a unique nature reserve with mudflats and salt marshes ... A Ghentian Zwin?

The Brabo fountain, in Antwerp. Brabo throws the severed hand of Antigoon into the Scheldt. Sculpture by Jef Lambeaux (in 1887)

Druon Antigoon is a Flemish folkloric character. He was a mythical giant who lived in Antwerp.
Guarding a bridge on the river Scheldt, he exacted a toll from those crossing the river. For those who refused, he severed one of their hands and threw it into the river. Eventually, Antigoon was slain by a young Roman soldier named Brabo, who cut off the giant's own hand and flung it into the river.

According to folklore, and as celebrated by the statuein front of the town hall, this legend is the origin of the name Antwerp: Antwerpen, from Dutch hand werpen—akin to Old English hand and wearpan (= to throw), that has changed to today's warp.

Today’s spot: TOURNAI (Doornik in Dutch): one of the oldest city in Belgium near French Border. The 72m high belfry is the main attraction (oldest in Belgium) and you can climb the 256 steps for an incredible view 😍Lovely place for a casual strolling in grey Winter days. So I googled about this city’s history (which I rarely do) and it turns out that It is the only city in Belgium which was once English🤔
