sunny 16 °C
View Not The Italy Tour 2015 on Eric_The_Viking's travel map.

Headed up to Belgium today through the forests of Lorraine, very windy & tiring leaning over to compensate , harvesting season is well under way and it looks like this is the time to fix the roads too.

Arrive early in Bouillon, booking 2 nights in the Best Western, the town looks very deserted despite the warm sunshine.

Evening meal included a bit more than was expected.

Thursday was a lazy day a look round the town in the morning, shame there are alot of places closed or for sale here as it's such a nice place.

'Ello oh' They're rebuiling the old castle, not surprising really, as it was originally built in 1010when Sir Geofrod was here having a punch up with someone, then went off to the Holy Land. I think that may be why they're rebuilding alot of the streets too, we were there at 1145 so they've done really well.

Very warm at lunchtime so we plan a route through the Ardennes and go for a play on the bikes and have a spot of lunch high up looking down into the valley, all very civilised.
