Mons - Charleroi airport..

by Drugness

Hello all
How easy is it to travel between Mons and Charleroi airport by public transport?
Is there regular buses going to and from the airport?
Thank you!
DG

Easier to go by train from Charleroi Sud station, I should think.

Hover over 'Passengers' on the airport website and you'll find transport info to/from:

Belgian trains here:

Takes about 30-45 mins, direct trains.

ROYAL TREATMENT

by lmkluque

One of my fondest memories is having the opportunity of stepping out on to the Royal Balcony to view the Grand Place below. I'm not sure if it was part of the "Package" offered in the Tour or not. In any case, I felt quite Royal for the moment.

That is me, on the left holding the flag from my face with my cane.

A PROFOUND DISCOVERY!

by lmkluque

One outstanding Fondest Memory was the moment the refrigerator door was opened. Nothing in it but cans and bottles of beer, white wine chilling and a few cans of soda!

You imagine that this is at the house of a bunch of wild students? Not so, it was the well stocked fridge of a professor!

Feeling hungry in the middle of the night?

by Djinn76

In this case, just do like most of the students (and others), get a "mitraillette" (litterally translated, "machine gun") chez Bily.
This is one of the most popular "friet kot" in Mons. Normal, they have the best belgian fries in the area...
During the day, you could easily miss it, but once it is open (from 10pm if I remember correctly) the queue is sometime ending on the street...
Btw, I let you discover what are these very healthy mitraillettes...
In short, a french bread with meat, belgian fries and different sauces...

Traditional students...

by Djinn76

If you meet weird people wearing a dirty coat and a long cap at the end of a big chain, don't be scared, they are simply traditional students.
Newbies who wish so are first going through a few weeks of "training" where they are thaught the usual student songs and how to drink beer.
Once they are gone through this process, they are entitled to wear the cap (called "une penne").
This is an highly controversial subject, some people are totally against it! True that sometime it may look like some scenes out of Full Metal Jacket. This is however highly different from an university to another and personally, I think anyone who don't know should not criticize. I went through it and if I had to, I would certainly do it again...
In short, if you are walking in Mons around september/october and you meet one of the new students (without a cap but probably disguised) trying to sell pens, bottle openers or other stickers simply support him and buy some...
