To me it certainly seemed that this was the first sunny Sunday in ages. Hence, quickly the map, a bottle of water and some biscuits in the bag pack; plus the camera and everything to fix a flat tire and off I went to la Hulpe.
Or to be more precisely to Château de la Hulpe – a bit more than 1:30 hour cycling South of Brussels. Though I certainly enjoyed the park and seeing the castle, the most beautiful part of the trip were the long alleys of beeches, sunshine filtering through trees and the silence on the less popular ways.
To pick up chestnuts on the way home and roast them in the oven was the cherry on top of this beautiful day. If you see what I mean.
