King Filip kite-surfing in Armenia: "Enjoy your last holidays!"

The Royal Palace has released a video in which King Filip of the Belgians can be seen in full action, doing kite-surfing.  The Royal family wishes everyone a nice end to the summer holidays. 

The king and his family are enjoying a "private cultural holiday" in Armenia. Kite-surfing is not new for the Belgian monarch: last year he did it on the North Sea in July, also wishing everyone a nice summer holiday. This time, he is led by music composed by Collegium Vocale Gent, led by Philippe Herreweghe. 

Kite-surfing is one of the king's passtimes that we recently got to know, just like painting.  Armenia is one of the rising stars in tourism, boasting a wine tradition and the Geghard Monastery and the Upper Azat Valley as tourist hotspots, among other things.
