      On Sunday we were ready for our second stage of the GR 412. We left an hour earlier because Komoot predicted that we would arrive in the dark.

      After departure, we cross the largest wind farm in Belgium.

      We had to walk again for 8 Km before finally arriving at the first slag heap, which presents itself

      On March 1, 2021 we walked the Boucle Noir in Charleroi, which Katrien put in the spotlight this WE. This circuit and the history of the rich Walloon past triggered us in such a way that we were curious to discover more of it via the GR 412. We started this extended WE.

      The second day in Versailles we did the rest of the gardens. We also went to the Trianons and the farm, but those photos can be found in another report.

      In the gardens the "bushes" (bosquets) were open and the fountains spouted water at certain hours and under music. Beautiful to see.

      Well, you can certainly walk enough here ;-).

      The middle part of the walk on the second day. Le Grand Trianon, Le Petit Trianon and the Queen's Farm. Another joy for the komoot walker. And Versailles is more than the castle.

      We started with the gardens and the "bosquets", these are paid during les jours de Grandes Eaux et de Jardins Musicaux. But these bosquets and the spectacle of the fountains are beautiful. The continuation of this spectacle was for the next day.

      After the castle we visited the large stable with beautiful carriages (carrosses) and the small stable with statues.

      In the evening there was a spectacle with horses. A pleasant spectacle even for non-children. :-)

      Everyone knows Versailles, but we certainly hadn't been there yet. The beautiful weather and the end of the high season (30/10) encourage us to tick this off now.

      We bought a two-day ticket where they propose you a program....

      That program is by no means adequate. The ticket insinuates that you can only

      This WE the grandson was visiting. This led to a visit to Pairi Daiza. This "most beautiful zoo in Europe" has already been beautifully portrayed by @ Viviane. But it was still an excellent moment to let the camera loose. Until the battery had to be replaced and I noticed that I had an empty spare battery

      With this good autumn weather we went again to the Condruzian plateau in Hun to check off another walk from origielewandelen.be.

      We already know the region and so I moved the starting point on the looped trail to the well-known hotel/restaurant Les 7 Meuses. Tip: a beautiful location for a walking weekend
