    Lovely stay in Overpelt, Belgium

    April 27, 2017 in Belgium

    We are staying with our hosts Jodie and Nancy.

    There is a small fridge stocked with good beers so we don't have to go out to sample the beers.

    Yesterday afternoon when we got back, I could not find my wallet. So we drove to the last place I had gotten out of the car, the windmill. We did nothing t see the wallet on the ground so we went and knocked on the door of the house next to the windmill. Fortunately Heather speaks a bit of German, so we found out that the gentleman had found the wallet and taken it to the police station. When we got to the police station and the officer got off the phone, he greeted us with "you must be Herr Sweet." Two minutes later I had my wallet and everything was good in the world again. I want to that the wonderful Belgiums that affirmed my belief that people are almost always good.Read more

    Trappist Monastery Achel-Hamont

    April 26, 2017 in Belgium

    This is one of the six Trappist monasteries left where the monks brew the beer themselves. It's right on border with Netherlands and Gordon had earmarked it as one we should try to visit. We had no idea it was 20 minutes from our Airbnb in Overpelt. Good beer, too.

    Neerpelt Belgium

    April 26, 2017 in Belgium

    A MOST eventful trip to neighboring Neerpelt. Gordon saw the first clearly identifiable barber shop since we've been here. As you can clearly see from the photos, he was channeling his inner hippie and his eyebrows were channeling their inner woolly worms. He is now a happy camper.

    We celebrated by stopping into the local tea room for lunch: toast topped with melted Brie, sautéed apples and mushrooms, thick crispy bacon, all on a bed of lettuce in a mustard vinaigrette. Wow! Lucky guess since we can't read a word of Dutch.

    This is the first place we've been that people seem to routinely use bicycles to go about their daily business (as opposed to bicycle touring or racing). We have tried many times to get a good photo without success. We kind of liked the one here, though, clearly shot through the car window, reflections and all.

    Kaasmakerij Catharinadal

    April 26, 2017 in Belgium

    This famous cheese maker is tucked away in a residential area about 15 minutes from where we're staying. It is owned and operated by our host Nancy's uncle. Fabulous cheese. We got 3 kinds: two hat incorporated Achel beer and their international award-winning blue.

    Hamont, Belgien

    May 11 in Belgium

    Lille fin camperplads til 4 stk, rolige omgivelser, men ingen faciliteter.
    Der er rigtig mange cykelruter herfra, først skulle Freja lige testes, hun har haft pause fra lange gåture, hun var i formiddags på en tur på 8 km, det gik fint men det er nok det maksimale lige nu.
    Pladsen ligger i skygge så Freja kunne sagtens være i bilen om eftermiddagen. Vi tog på en cykeltur rundt i omgivelserne, 35 km blev det til, stierne er gode og godt afmærket.Read more

    Abschluss der Belgientour

    February 13 in Belgium

    Die letzte Station ist ein ruhiger Platz am Kanal. Ideal geeignet zum relaxen, auch wenn es kalt ist.
    Und: es ist tatsächlich der erste und einzige wirklich schöne Stellplatz auf dieser Tour. Die anderen erfüllten maximal ihren Zweck. Dafür haben wir tolle Städte kennengelernt, die auch einen zweiten Besuch lohnen würden, wenn es mal wieder wärmer wird
