This coming Sunday I propose a day out to visit Floralia, the spring flower exhibition in the park and the greenhouses at the castle of Grand Bigard. We will have the opportunity to discover over 500 varieties of flowers including 400 tulip varieties. Bonus: for this 12th anniversary there will be a Venetian parade at 2 pm – we shouldn’t miss that!
There is a cafeteria in the park, with a choice of sandwiches, salads, light meals and cold dishes, should you want to buy something. We can as well bring our own food and have a picnic in the park.
Entrance: 12€ (if we are over 20, the price goes down to 10€)
Practical details: this event is based on car-pooling. If you have a car and are willing to drive, please let me know (also indicate how many passengers you can take). If not enough cars to accommodate everybody, the first come first served rule will apply.
Date: Sunday 19th April
Meeting place: Montgomery roundabout, south-east layby next to Bd. St Michel (metro exit in front of the Auto Ecole Stop)
Meeting time: 10:45 for departure at 11:00 (please be on time as we will leave at 11:00 sharp)
Journey (one way): 10 km
Return: late afternoon
Fuel: split at the end of the trip (usually varies between 5 and 7 EUR per person, depending on the total distance travelled and how many seats are occupied)
