Breakfast is served from eight thirty, so we’re making an effort and set the alarm only at seven thirty. In the small breakfast room I have baguette with smoked meat, with a soft brie-like cheese and one with a boiled egg, with crème d’Anjou as dessert, yummy. It started raining during the night and the… Continue reading Rain (and some castles)
Alarm at seven, breakfast at eight. I remember that I have two bananas here, left over from home, and decide to have a toasted bread slice with choco and then banana slices on top. It's a small banana, but also a small slice, so the pieces are about 15 mm thick, takes some coordination to… Continue reading Down from the Wurmberg
Alarm is at six thirty, but I wake up a bit earlier, courtesy of the cat. I've prepared my bags yesterday evening, so I can take it easy this morning. I have some water, take my meds, put in my lenses and generally hang around. I'm doing 16:8 intermittent fasting to help my IBS and… Continue reading to Racour by bike
When we get up this morning the sun is shining and there's not a cloud to see in the sky! We decide on a 15 km walk right on the border with Germany, once again from the 'Pleasure Walks' book/website. We drive through Eupen (listening to ancient Pure Music cd's - or rather the Spotify… Continue reading a beautiful day
Admittedly, this summary is a bit later than planned, in my defense we came home Sunday evening, I did some laundry, we had food and went to bed. Next day up at six to go to work, by bike. So now we're Thursday and this is the first free moment I've had to look back… Continue reading Summary
Breakfast is served at the table in a large, empty dining room, I think we must be the only guests in this hotel. Some restaurant and hotel people say it's a bit quiet, but not too bad, mainly the foreign tourists are missing. Other hotel owners say it's been too quiet and are worried about… Continue reading A short way back home
Quite warm in the room, there's a fan but even so I take the blanket out of the sheet and use the sheet to sleep under. Alarm at seven, we put on our decent clothes and a mouth mask to go to breakfast downstairs. It's strange.. you can take the mouth mask off only when… Continue reading Deer!
Alarm at seven, we slept okay, not too hot in the room fortunately. We go down to the breakfast room, they have just switched back to the classic buffet system, but ask that you follow a one way tour throughout the area to avoid close contact with others, though there is no requirement to wear… Continue reading Sunny hills
early out of bed, we want to take advantage of the mild morning temperatures to take a walk through the Wilhemshöhe Bergpark. there is an app that has all the info, though we get mixed signals about whether the impressive waterfall system will be operational. on the website it says there is maintenance, other sites say… Continue reading home!
It’s a short day, so we get up a bit later, take our time with breakfast and leave around 9h30. We get turned around leaving town, but once we find the right waterway we’re off. The weather is still stormy and windy and we’re expecting rain, but it’s a beautiful road along the Maas river.… Continue reading CHARLEVILLE-MÉZIÈRES – LE CHESNE: 50 KM
We had decided this would be a quiet day. We’ve had several very active ones and don’t want to overdo it. In the morning we go to the Albufera Nature Reserve, which is a huge area of rice fields with a lagoon at the center. It is a reserve because there is a lot of… Continue reading Albufera Nature Reserve
