Again, road works and closures made it difficult for us to get to Sint Joris Weert for the start of our adventure from no. 109. This time, I switched on Google Maps and finally we arrived at the car park next to Meerdaalwoud.
More problems ensued as the numbers have been messed up somewhat in this area, with new ones added creating confusion as regards the trails we needed to follow. The route we had planned for today was particularly long, so at one point, after following signs saying something like, "110 via 127", I had the suspicion that we were going a different and even longer trek and that we were effectively lost. Once more, it was good old Google Maps that saved the day: I could confirm that we were in the correct position after all.
From then on the walk proceeded well. From start to finish today we walked along forest paths surrounded by tall trees. The highlight of our discussions was certainly an argument we had about a group of trees that Gianluca had spotted while we were trying to find our bearings. Much later, in another section of the forest, he remarked that we were passing through the same group of trees. I insisted that this couldn't be as we were far away from that spot. We never reached an agreement on this.
It took us a long time to get back to the car, but once there we were satisfied at having completed a rather difficult and eventful adventure. Our legs could take a well deserved rest.

Tonio: "Because it looks interesting."
