My favorite one is the one … Continue reading Tale from the trail (10): short stay?!

On the 15th of June 2014 my boyfriend and I got on our bikes and started what is our biggest adventure so far.
My boyfriend took me on a weekend getaway to les Hautes Fagnes. It was one of those perfect little escapes from our daily life. This time everything went wrong, only so it could go perfectly right.
