GR daydreams

WPBlog001 1077

My visit with my grandmother in her final days has strengthened my resolve to live simply and to live well, as she did.  My thoughts return to Europe and to our continental scavenger hunt.  I look forward to chasing red and white blazes again.  I look forward to bumbling around the world on bikes with Lael.  I look forward to a vigorous outdoor life.  I am on a plane back to Bruxelles right now.

  1. Hi there,

    Glad your back on the saddle! How’s your mum? It’s been nice to follow your whereabouts through my country (Holland). Really did, completely sympathized. Made me crave more and more for my hike which starts saturday in Menton, near Nice heading for Lake of Geneva. I will be on the GR5 too! Of course i stumbled upon you googling for gr5. So have a GREAT time on the GR5 and maybe even we will bump into each other somewhere! I’ll keep following you anyway on your posts.

    Met hartelijke groet,

    Fred van Diem

  2. Oops i’m so sorry, you went back for your grandmother.. Excuse me for not yet being quite awake.

    Anyway, i smelled the mistake and reread your kind words about your grandmother to realize that

    My grandmother was Polish and i recognized more than a few things.

    Met hartelijke groet,

    • Fred, I am excited for your upcoming trip. I am not sure of the timing, but there is a chance that we will see you if we stay on the GR5. Near Maastricht at the moment. The trail has become much more interesting as we have entered the hills of southeastern Belgium.

      Enjoy the walk!
