Despite the long walk of yesterday we feel rather fit so we opt to do another long walk but this time we will cross the border with the Netherlands. And more important: Elgar joined us for this trip. So....watch out for the pictures with a moose on it.

Good to know:
Distance: 21 kms
Rate: easy
Map (incl. elevation information): Teuven circular walk
GPS-track available for download: yes

As always all photo's can be enlarged by clicking on them.

Again start is from the B&B de Kraanvogel in Sint Pietersvoeren. It is so convenient not to drive to somewhere for a starting point but just to walk out the door of your B&B and to start walking.
The church of Sint Pietersvoeren in full sunlight and once again a picture of the half-timbered houses in Veurs.

This track is familiar to us now as we have crossed this path on every hike we did in this area. But like stated before, it is our favorite spot.

After the easy stroll yesterday it was time for a long hike and we decided to walk to Aubel and then see if we could make it to the Abbey of Val-Dieu.

Good to know:
Distance: 22.5 kms
Rate: easy
Map (incl. elevation information): Aubel
GPS-track available for download: yes

As always all photo's can be enlarged by clicking on them.

Again start is from B&B de Kraanvogel in Sint Pietersvoeren.
It was lovely weather: sun and blue skies, not too warm, just perfect walking conditions. The first part of the track is familiar to us as it is the track we ended up with yesterday. Nevertheless we enjoy the scenery. Just like these cows.

Our first day in the "Voerstreek" and we decided to do a walk from a booklet containing hikes in this area. It is the so-called flint walk (in Dutch we name it "Vuursteen wandeling") as those stones can be found throughout the walk.

Good to know:
Distance: 8.8 kms
Rate: easy
Map (incl. elevation information): Sint Pietersvoeren
GPS-track available for download: yes

As always all photo's can be enlarged by clicking on them.

The walk starts and ends straight from the doorstep of our B&B in Sint Pietersvoeren (in French: Fourons-Saint-Pierre) so that is very handy.As you can see from the pictures, the terrain is somewhat hilly and there are also a lot of fruit orchards around.

We just returned from a short break in Belgium, to be precise in the Voerstreek, where we stayed in a lovely B&B called "De Kraanvogel".
"De Kraanvogel" is situated in Sint Pieters-Voeren and is surrounded by hills and forests.

This B&B has a huge garden which even has ample place for a ......horse (see the stable on the lefthand side of this picture)

As Elgar is not a real horse fan, we planned for several walks instead and because the weather was just great, we managed to do 3 lovely walks, which all started straigth from the doorsteps of this B&B. So stay tuned for more pictures to come shortly.
