Tuesday morning I was up early, packed my stuff and loaded the bike.
Hetty made me a good breakfast, before I said goodbye and went on.
Riding on I enjoyed being on my own again. I had a great time with team rrr and the weekend with the dutch guys I rode with was also ok, But I love to be on my own.
I wanted to ride to the western part of the Ardennes, where I hadn't been yet.
First stop on the day was the town Bastogne holding some museums from the war.
Arriving in Bastogne luck wasn't with me. There's a sherman tank on the main square, but the city had started a lot of construction on the main square, so it was all fences, noise, dust and so on.
I managed to get a decent pic of this jeep on the square.
A then the museum was closed another hour for lunch... I didn't want to hang around waiting for that so I rode out of town again.
Passing a war memorial.
Passing through small towns.
I arrived in the town Han-sur-Lesse,
where I wanted to see the Grottes du Han, Belgium's most famous caves.
After a 10 minute ride with a little train we arrived at the entrance to the caves,
and went underground.
Daylight again, at the end of the tunnel.
After this interesting visit I rode west, starting to look for a hotel.
At my third attempt, I found this nice hotel Le Saint Hubert, after crossing the border to France.
This ment french food for dinner, yummi. Here's my starter.
Followed by salmon.
And cheese for desert.
It was a nice mild evening, so I sat outside for like an hour or 2 with a cold beer before going to bed.
