The land of the Valleys

Who knows me a little bit, knows also that I don't be a "normal" tourist.
I visit a country first with my friends, my feet's, my eyes and my belly.

Enjoy it,



Qui me connais un peu, sais que je ne suis pas un touriste "normal".

Je visite une région premièrement accompagné d'amis, à pieds puis mes yeux et enfin mon ventre (ah, ah)

Beaucoup de plaisir,



On the road again.

We did about 20 km in one of the most beautiful Belgian countryside . The rivers here has Lesse and Meuse as name.

We started from Foy-Notre-Dame to Anseremme for a wonderful walk along the long distance footpath "GR 126"


Nous avons parcourus 20 km dans un des plus beau paysage de Belgique. Les rivières ici ont pour nom: Lesse et Meuse.

Partis de Foy-Notre-Dame pour une magnifique randonnée le long du Grande Randonnée 126 pour arrivés en fin de journée à Anseremme


An other castle

In the valley of the river Lesse, we came along the amazing Walzin castle.

You can read more about on one of my tips: "Things to do ".

    Jean-Pierre, excellent little page with brilliant photos of Dinant here. The town is well known for its scenic location and I would love to visit it some day in the future. Even better that there is a beer museum.

    J'étais venue grimper à Freyr il y a quelques années (si je me souviens bien le café en haut des voies est le Chamonix bar) C'est vraiment un endroit superbe !
