It’s been nearly three weeks since we arrived in Europe for Ronn’s performances in Belgium. The first week was rather hectic adjusting to the time change, jet lag and the rehearsals for the premiere VIP performance of the variety show, “The Bolle en de Beautiful” which is already a big hit in Blankenberge. Since this was our first time in this part of Belgium, we found the beaches of Blankenberge were gorgeous. There is a boardwalk of great restaurants and shops near the theater where the weekend performances will be held all summer. And the food in Belgium is amazing, especially the mussels and seafood! Belgium is known for their french fries and wide variety of beer and of course amazing chocolate!
We also explored a bit of the gorgeous town of Brugge, which has picturesque canals throughout the village. We stopped in Antwerp for lunch on our way to Amsterdam and look forward to seeing more of both these cities when Ronn starts the run of the play, “Brasschaatse Huisvrouwen” which is a comedy, this fall. So far our stay in Belgium is turning out to be quite fun and we look forward to bike rides along the beach and throughout the beautiful little town of De Haan.
After that first week of the VIP performances, we learned to our surprise that we had a two week vacation before the actual run of the variety show would start and decided to visit beautiful Amsterdam by car, compliments of Peugeot! So Ronn got to experience driving for the first time in Europe. We were invited to be on the RTL Amsterdam show, “Boulevard” and met up with our DevRonn fanclub members for a drink before that show. Coincidentally, we found that we were staying with dear friends in Breulelen, which is a beautiful little village a half hour outside of Amsterdam. Turns out it’s also the hometown of our very own DevRonn fanclub president, Angelique de Vries!
Ronn is getting so found of driving the Peugeot that he wanted to take the 9 hour plus drive to visit our dear friend and pop German artist, known for the beautiful bubblegum art of Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn, Michael Moebius. We have never really seen Germany and wanted to visit Dresden, so this has become quite an adventure so far! Ronn has been driving very fast because there is no speed limit restrictions in some areas the route here in Germany!
Ronn has upcoming TV shows and appearances in Italy and possibly, St. Tropez, Nice and Amsterdam to look forward to before we leave Europe in late October. Right now, we are enjoying spending some quality time in Dresden and have been staying in the beautiful “Hotel Taschenbergpalais Kempinski” compliments of Michael Moebius. This place is truly amazing and so elegant.
We and Mr. Prince have been enjoying some amazing dinners and made the cover of Primo magazine for Belgium. Seems the magazine editors have been so impressed with our adventures that I have been offered my own weekly column about Ronn and Me while we are here in Europe. The weekly column will debut the first week of August. So I will surely keep you guys informed up to date on our upcoming adventures with the one and only Mr. Prince also.
