In order not to forget about walking, we took a short walk in the area today. We left from the beautiful church of Wondelgem - where the priest proudly showed me the new organ - and so on along some beautiful green and quiet sides of Wondelgem.

Today our last mapped out walk in the Veluwe. Crossing the beekhuizerzand was not easy, because it is not easy to walk, but the desolate view is nevertheless impressive. Finishing the holiday tomorrow with a visit to Amersfoort.

Today a nice walk through mainly forest, but also through the heath and through a sand drift. The latter is a bit more difficult to walk, but it is very nice to walk through. It's a pity that you can't share the scents of forest, the sensations of a breeze, the sun that warms you,...

In Vandières I first walked on the route to Santiago and then finally connected to the GR 5 via a connecting route. Read regularly that the stages… read more

Today we mainly walked through the forest. It was incredibly hot and there were a few tough climbs that demanded a lot from me due to the combination of the heat and the (heavy) backpack. I think I'm going to have to learn to travel with less weight. At a certain moment I really doubted whether I would… read more

Today a stage that started quite flat via the Moselle, but soon conquered the first slopes. The last 8 km were the hardest because there was a stretch there that was a steady climb for almost the full 3 km. And if you already have quite a lot of miles in your legs, it's a matter of showing character… read more
