      Done...! Yes, I did it ... 😀😀😀
      Walked from Switzerland to Holland ... I covered the last kilometers almost floating, I really enjoyed my arrival in Holland ...
      Great, wonderful ... 😀
      Forgotten are the exertions, the many climbs, the tired and heavy legs, the oppressive backpack, the sometimes tedious search for accommodation (because of Corona many hotels, restaurants, campsites etc. were closed ...), (with many thanks on " Home front "for active support ... 😍), rain and heat ...
      All that mattered to me now was my experience, the great experience of my hiking trip.
      This remains unforgettable ... With its landscapes, the many animals along the way, the scents of nature ... And: my joy of movement, my own strength ...
      All that remains now is to thank my loyal followers for your "accompaniment" and support, "living with us" and a good tip ...
      Thank you so much ... !!! 😀😀😍

      Today: sunny and warm. It still had its slopes, so it was time to sweat again ... 😁
      In the last few days, more and more GR5 goers came towards me. Most were only on the road for a few days. A striking number of young people were there, including women, alone or in pairs ...
      My hiking adventure is almost over now, tomorrow is the last stage ...
      First conclusion: Physically very tired, but otherwise very satisfied, about what has happened in the last five weeks ...

      Banneux, known as a place of pilgrimage (only not with me ... 😁) There were eight appearances of Mary in 1921. Since then hundreds of thousands have come here every year ... I was one of them, but for another reason ...
      Soumagne, known for its "Domaine de Wégimont", a huge leisure area around a manor house, so Kastel, with countless leisure activities and: A nice campsite ... 😀
      And so you keep learning, making new experiences ... 😀
      And with my new knowledge I left the Ardennes and move more and more towards the southernmost province of Holland ...

      Again the altitude meters are deceptive. According to the altitude profile, I started this morning at -20 m ... well ..., blub, blub ... 😀😀
      Otherwise I stayed dry, it was covered, but it wasn't raining. It was even pleasant ... 😀
      And that's how it should be ... 😀😀

      It was predicted. And they came. The rain and the drop in temperature ...
      The rain started when I wanted to get started. And stopped for a long time when I arrived in Spa. Perfect timing...
      It was also a shame the fog went over a beautiful plateau in front of Spa, but the view was gone ...
      Well, tomorrow the weather should be better ...

      The stage was not long today, I had a lot of time to practice the "art of walking slowly". Not only did I try to slow down the walking pace, no, initially I used almost every opportunity to sit down somewhere. For a few minutes ...
      There were felled trees, there were a number of benches with different seating qualities. Unfortunately, I have to say that the Belgians should do some catching up on "anatomy of the body while sitting" ... There were real "back torments" ...
      But I should continue to perfect the art of slow running, it just worked poorly ...
      But I stay tuned ... 😀😀

      I walk lightly through this friendly landscape. Things are going up a little, I'm sweating.
      Cows on the side of the road stare at me silently, several flies buzz around my head. I'll take it easy ...
      Life means well with me right now. The head is responsible for planning and logistics, the legs are responsible for running. A reasonable division ...
      Carefree. The only question is what the place of accommodation looks like. Hotel, Chambre d'Hotes, campsite ... Depending on needs and situation ... Otherwise everything is open and free. And this is so nice about long-distance hiking or trekking ...
      I think this could go on for a while ...

      Saying goodbye to Luxembourg was not easy. The last 5km on the bank of the river "Our" were wonderful to walk. Flat, shady, with beautiful grazing light from early sunshine ...
      Once over the border to Belgium came the first climb, more followed ... Then the heat made itself felt, sweating was announced ...
      But a fresh shower after the hike quickly made her forget ...
      Tomorrow we continue ...
