During my travels, my compensation for free accommodation for one night, was for me to write a daily travel diary. Of how I got to my next location, the people who would host me, the food I was offered and everything else. Below you find the archives of the highly extensive reports. Know that English is not my native language and most reports were written at high speed around midnight. Enjoy.

--> Tessenderlo (B)

I got all the time to work up my reports and still relaxed after the Antwerp-night cause the hosting family brought me to the next place in the afternoon, where I had fancy talks in the backgarden in Tessenderlo.
I got up at 10 oŽclock and the family would have breakfast outside in the garden at 10.30 in the morning. Mother Ingrid was just finished reading the Saturday newspapers out of this region and breakfast was served with a cup of warm coffee with milk and double sugar.

After this breakfast I checked my emails. This really was relaxing, because I could be busy on my website with all the time on my side, without the hury or rush of getting away again.

Ingrid told me sheŽd bring me to me next address too; the place Tessenderlo was only 19 kilometres away from Geel – why should I hitch that piece?
