    Return to De Gavers

    November 1, 2017 in Belgium

    De Gavers country park was one of the best places we'd found to stay so far in Belgium so we decided to return for a couple of nights. Despite having several large cities in this region of Belgium, the majority of land is very agricultural and we passed fields of brassicas and harvested sugar beet. As well as growing plants, the flat fields are used to keep an interesting range of animals. We've seen a lot of horses, deer and donkeys. Sheep and goats are a regular sight although they are often specialist breeds such as pygmy goats. According to our WWOOF host Diderik, Belgians have not tended to eat lamb or mutton regularly, but the muslim population are creating a growing demand for it.

    Will enjoyed a canalside cycle ride at De Gavers but Vicky was poorly and only managed a short walk along the lake shore. We are beginning to think more and more about our imminent return to the UK and reluctantly about the job of giving the van a clear out now we have more of an idea of what we need and what we don't. For example, we were ashamed to find we had three oyster shuckers on board - does anyone need one? 😂

    De Gavers Park

    October 15, 2017 in Belgium

    After the urban intensity of Brussels, De Gavers Nature Park was a welcome breath of fresh air and greenery. The final 50m or so of a track was allocated especially for motorhome parking. It was full when we first arrived but soon cleared as day visitors departed. We were able to slot neatly into a space and put our rubber mat outside the door. We always feel more at home when there is a sign inviting vans to park!

    We were sad that Beth and Richard were no longer with us but it was a beautifully warm sunny day so after a cat nap for Vicky, we set out on a walk around the lake. There were hundreds of people on the well maintained gravel track and we felt lucky to be going with the flow! We usually don't like crowds but today it lifted us up to see so many walking, cycling, scooting, taking dogs and jogging alongside the shore surrounded by woods and grasslands.
