Time flies when you’re having fun. My three-week vacation is almost over. I had a great time. It was my best vacation in four years time, thanks to my family and best friends. Yesterday, I went to visit the Averbode Abbey.
Averbode Abbey is a Premonstratensian monastery situated near Diest (Flemish Brabant), in the Archdiocese of Mechelen-Brussels in Belgium. It was founded about 1134-1135 by Count Arnold II of Loon. With land donations from the Abbey of Sint-Truiden, the lords of Aarschot and Diest, and some years later Godfrey III of Leuven, the abbey was situated right on the border of the County of Loon and the Duchy of Brabant. The first monks and abbot Andreas came from the Sint-Michielsabdij in Antwerp, founded in 1124. (Source: Wikipedia)
