Brabant Wallon in Belgium is a gem for hikers. It has a network of shorter footpaths, while a couple of GR long distance footpaths run through it. The whole area has some lovely countryside and picturesque villages. What’s more, once you leave the towns, you can be guaranteed some peace and solitude.
A 7.5-km walk around Doiceau, with opportunities to harvest the fruits of the wild. No, it wasn’t the sunniest day. In fact it was grey and getting greyer by the minute. But I came back with a big bag of chestnuts to cook for supper. Oh dear, that didn’t work!
