... but we arrived back in Balen mid afternoon and went to the local pub for dinner...called De WaterKant ...its right on the canal and has a thatched roof and is quite nice. We had a chicken stir fry and frites .....way too much food. Then back to the house to pack. made sandwiches and fruit for the road tomorrow. Klaas built a nice fire before ...
... no wind. Not bad. Stopped for soup at Rochefort. More road works and pavements being replaced. Good soup and back on the road, this time taking the road less travelled. Obscure roads through tiny villages veering across the countryside.
Unfortunately, the weather deteriorated as the afternoon progressed. Drove through persistent rain to the small hamlet of Cartigny. Think ...
... and thinking miles... you only had 20 miles to go."
****. I should have known better. or got a GPS..
Next day I looked up the next few Shell servos en route. They have staff. While in France and Belgium I will be sticking to Shell, as I know what to expect, while sounding as Ocker as possible.
More rain into Belgium. Finally in Luxembourg the rain lifts and but Germany it's a nice fine ride.
Still I didn't enjoy ...
... the self guided tour turned out to be just right and we enjoyed our visit. Namur had far surpassed our expectations. It was a great stop.
-we drove on to our hotel in Rochefort. Our host was a bit grumpy and the room had alot of road noise. A bit of a disappointment.
... size packs of chocolate and peanuts
2 cases of wine (ranging from pretty decent bordeaux down to 8 euro box wine - aka later to be converted to mulled wine as otherwise undrinkable).
Camped for the night in the Vallee de la Meuse very near the Belgian border and joined in a local French guy's birthday party by accident, though at least got to enjoy plenty of Belgian beer which I would have missed out on otherwise.
