A walk around the block
Jan convinced me to go out for a walk this weekend anyway and so I did and I enjoyed it. In the beginning my cold actually seemed to get better while walking so we extened our intended tour a little bit. Unfortunately now it's hitting back twice as hard to me :p.
But while doing the walk I grabbed my camera along since I still had to/wanted to answer's Carol's post where she tagged me to post some pictures what you see when you walk around the block in your area.
I could have filled this post full of historical magnificent fabulous buildings of Leuven, but we walked in the for outsiders maybe less known edge between Leuven and Heverlee towards the Abbey.
We have a nearby park with also some new business development, administration offices and a brand new very modern big sports centrum (swimming pools, climbing walls, fitness, basketball hall, ...). Very very handy to have it so closeby!
Railroads everywhere (incl the international Thalys high speed line Cologne - Brussels - Paris) and pedestrian railroad crossings
Some neighbourhood houses
'De Vesten' or the green space where the old medieval city walls used to be. Some parts are still visible as a clear green space with roads on both sides. The actual city center of Leuven is still a perfect circle because of those old city walls.
De Abdij van 't Park, an Norbertine abbey just around the block.
For more pictures of other walks, check out here a nearby castle or when we were showing Lisa around in and around Leuven.
Whoever feels like playing along, just leave me a comment, so we know that you are playing!
