[By Tonio:] Early afternoon today the sun was shining bright, so we decided to prepare some snacks and map out a route for our next adventure. When we were ready a few minutes later, the sky was overcast and it was raining heavily. The weather had been alternating that way all morning, so we decided to go in spite of the rain, hoping that by the time we arrived at the start the rain would have stopped.
And so it was. The sun was shining again when we left the car at Sint-Joris Weert, close to Oud Heverlee. We had our raincoats handy, of course, and soon enough we had to put them on. The weather was crazy all day today and throughout our walk I had to keep putting the raincoat on and taking it off again, as it was too warm while the sun was shining.
The places we walked through today were beautiful, and made even more so by the sun those times when it came out. Most of them we have already been, although Gianluca couldn't recall any of them. There were open plains where we also saw a couple of deer, narrow muddy paths in the forest, a playing area with an ice cream van, from where we bought an ice cream each and where I had my very first attempt at a conversation in Dutch with the old vendor. Mid-way in our walk we rested on a bench made from a hollowed out tree trunk.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable adventure. As usual.
