“I’ve been in music for 30 years and this is my busiest year yet,” says Pat Krimson. And then there is Eurosong on Saturday, where Loredana is one of the finalists. To relax in between, the sympathetic musical duo goes to the following addresses.

2. Hove House in Zonhoven

“We recently discovered this charming bistro in our own municipality. And we’ve been there a few times already. That says enough, doesn’t it? (laughs) The map is Italian tinted. You can even have an Italian breakfast in the morning. The atmosphere is also very cordial.”
