    Musée du Malgré-Tout, Belgium

    November 18, 2017 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 5 °C

    From our French stopover in Charleville-Mézières we did a short hop to a Carrefour supermarket to pick up some wine and other bits and bobs. Vicky was not best impressed when she was required to remove and open her rucksack before being allowed to enter the store! However, it had almost everything we wanted, including an extensive organic food section. There was quite a buzz around the boxes of Beaujolais Nouveau that had arrived, they had notices printed on the boxes instructing for them not to be put on sale until the 3rd Thursday of November!

    We returned to Belgium but the road continued to dip in and out of France to the extent that we didn't know which country we were in at points! One border crossing that occurred within a town demonstrated the different approaches the two countries have to christmas. We approached from the French side, where christmas lights were strung accross the road. However, as soon as we crossed the border, they came to an abrupt halt!

    The aire we stayed in was a patch of gravel near a museum and petanque club. It was big enough for 4 vans and when we pulled in we saw two Belgian and one large British motorhome. The occupant of the latter didn't seem very sociable so we didn't push it and indeed, he soon escaped to a parking spot outside of the aire. We guess as we draw closer to the ferry port we will see more and more GB plates.

    Ein netter Ort mit Laden, Café und Gite. Bis hierhin fährt eine Museumseisenbahn, mit der es über Mariembourg Anschluss an das Staatsbahnnetz gibt. Von der Grenze ist die verkehrsarme Hauptstraße der direkte Weg, während der offizielle Jakobsweg durch den Wald mäandert.

    Vierves-sur-Virion, Saints Rufin&Valère

    October 22, 2017 in Belgium ⋅ 🌧 8 °C

    Der Jakobsweg geht bis hierher nördlich oberhalb des Viroin-Tals entlang, kreuzt hier jedoch diesen (und die Museumsbahn), um auf der südlichen Seite durch Wald zu führen. Am Café beim Bahnübergang hängt eine Jakobsmuschel, und hier gibt es einen Pilgerstempel.

    Da zufällig eine Taufe war, erhalten wir einen Pilgerstempel im der Kirche. Am Bahnhof der Museumseisenbahn ist erst einmal Schluss mit dem Pilgern für dieses Jahr. Olloy ist ein Knotenpunkt: Weiter geht es entweder über Rocroi nach Reims und von dort nach Paris oder Vezelay, oder über Saint-Quentin nach Paris.Read more
