Pictures from Ian and Kat's Digital Camera: Our apartment at the Groot Begijnhof
[Up to Sabbatical 2014/2015 ]

Photos from our 2014/2015 sabbatical to Cambridge, UK and Leuven, BE.


At the end of February, we moved from Cambridge to Leuven, Belgium. We're staying in the Groot Begijnhof.

The great room (most of the apartment). The living room area is in the foreground, with a couple of work desks, a couch, and some chairs. The eating area is in the background.

The living room area, which for some reason includes a small guest bed.

The eating area includes a microwave that somehow doubles as a small grill and convection oven.

There's a tiny little kitchen.

We're on the top floor, so we get this very pretty A-frame interior. It's all-wood (pegs, etc., not nails) construction from we think the 1600s (except for a few metal braces clearly added later for reinforcement).

Being on the top floor, we have to come up some pretty tight and windy staircases.

The stairs to the bedroom. One has to use these stairs in the night to go to the bathroom. Fun.

The bedroom is quite large, and includes a sitting area, and the same A-frame construction as the great room.

One of the dormer windows in the great room.

The view out the kitchen window, into the streets of the Groot Begijnhof.
