going all the places, running all the races, eating all the things

The Kalmthoutse Heide is a park about half an hour drive from Antwerp and which straddles the Belgium/Holland border. It’s theoretically possible to go on a short wall which crosses over – though we chose another route this time.

The walking is on sand which makes it a bit harder work at times. This bring Belgium however it is also so flat that it’s almost hard to believe. Apparently there is also a herd of sheep that live here and some shaggy little cows too.

There is also a Suske and Wiske walk with sculptures all the way.

It’s really pretty terrain, and quite varied – definitely strange for an Australian.

One of the last remaining places I know that do a proper Australian salad sandwich – with grated carrot, beetroot & the rest is the takeaway in Leura in the Blue Mountains.

$3 for a trip down memory lane to the taste of being a kid. They also do great sweet potato scallops.

It’s a gorgeous part of the world, the national parks always & the suburban gardens particularly in Autumn for the changing leaves.

20130616-231726.jpg Before or after a hike I like to pop by for a quandong icecream – The Conservation Hut at Wentworth Falls has a gorgeous view. Cafe looks ok but icecream gets my money every time. They do some bush tucker type flavours & some more traditional ones.
