Abbaye Notre-Dame d’Orval

Abbaye d'Orval, Belgique, Europe

Orval Abbey, Villers-devant-Orval, Belgium

Founded as a Cistercian monastery, the abbey is well-known for its history and current spiritual life. Trappist Cistercian monks still welcome guests for short retreats.

The Abbaye Notre Dame d’Orval attracts also many tourists probably thanks to ist local production of Trappist Beer and typical cheese!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Today

Weekly Photo Challenge: Today

I have not been really committed to share photographs recently… I just discovered a challenge that will (hopefully) help me to upload photographs on a regular basis:

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2012/06/01/weekly-photo-challenge-today/

So from now on, one photograph every week (at least): ENJOY!

Note:

I did not share many photographs recently… but it does not mean that I do not play with my camera! It is just laziness which prevents me from sitting in front of a computer and updating this blog!

This morning roses in the garden were smiling to me, reminding me of The Little Prince written by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
