An adventurous up-and-down hike through an Ardennes river valley
I am a full-time freelance writer based in Belgium, where I now have joint Belgian-British nationality. My day job is a technical copywriter, which involves writing content for websites, blog posts, white papers, presentations, video scripts etc., for companies in a range of industry sectors.
Discovering Belgium is my personal blog focusing, not surprisingly, on Belgium. It covers suggestions for days out, hikes, cycle rides, nature reserves, castles, museums, city trips and much more.
DenzilWalton.com is my professional technical copywriting site.
