Monday, September 6, 2021 by N.D.Change the starting point to Kerkplein 1, 2230 Blauberg instead of Herselt. Auto-gps does not find this, confusing so you can not find the node numbers. Walk itself is often on horse trail which is difficult because of deep sand, not suitable for strollers. A lot in woods, boring, also a lot of mud despite the last few days being dry.

Monday, February 22, 2021 by D.V.In the footsteps of Willem Elsschot, this walk leads through a varied landscape: meadows, fields, pristine woodlands and winding forest roads alternate.

Thursday, January 30, 2020 by J.P.Quiet walk through forest, grass fields and quiet streets. I always regret it when I have to walk on streets with cars, but the many long stretches make up for those few streets. One long very muddy stretch to get to 165 though, next time wear boots or wait until it has been dry for a while.
