The Ardennes

My friends Chantalle, Sophie and I went to the Ardennes in Belgium. We had amazing week; we explored the village of La Roche, visited La Roche's castle, did some archery(?), ate out went kayaking, and ate crêpes.

The train from Maastricht to Liège
 Being stuck in Melreux for several hours we decided to get a drink.

I didn't expect Belgium to be so different from the Netherlands. From where we live it would have been a three hour drive by car to La Roche, but the environment is already so different. I will defenitely be going back to the Ardennes sometime.


  1. This looks like so much fun! That's such a range of different things you tried. I really want to have a go at archery though it looks pretty difficult.

    1. It's not really that difficult at all actually! I have been a member of an archery club for about half a year. In the beginning I was not realy that good, but I soon saw that I was making progress. That is probably why I love the sport so much, you can always see how you are doing and if you are getting better.
