Au revoir, Geneve!
We checked into the Coco-mat Residences, an apartment style hotel in central Antwerp. The enormous apartment on the 6th floor had huge windows with sweeping city views, two bedrooms, one and a half bathrooms, and a full kitchen. Parking (not to mention driving!) is difficult in the center of town. A parking garage is located nearby coco-mat for €18 per day. Just outside our door was a pedestrian friendly area with lots of shops and restaurants. A large grocery store was also down below, providing easy access for cooking on our own in the apartment.
For dinner, we met cousin Inge and her boyfriend Raymond in a historic neighborhood of Antwerp. The majestic and stately homes were once occupied by all one family, but many are now subdivided into multi family units.
