    two weeks ago a buddy and me left our home in the north of Belgium to do a small 'Battle of the Bulge' ride in our lovely Ardennes. ardennen01.jpg

    the trip included some of the 'left behind' tanks that are in the area, the Bastogne War Museum. unfortunately two other planned museums were closed... ardennen08.jpg ardennen06.jpg

    My wife is from Bruges, so we explored in the Ardennes quite a bit, just not on bikes, we borrowed my brother in laws camper.
    So I really enjoy seeing your pics.
    And I certainly agree about having a good Belgian beer. Thanks for sharing your pics.

    It must be nice to stop at any random bar and be able to order an Achouffe! I'm envious.
