A autumn walk around Spa

Spa is a historic city in the middle of the Belgian Ardennes, well known for the many sources , its mineral water brands , its wellness hotels popular among nobility throughout past centuries making the word spa a synonym for thermal treatment resorts in different languages.

The beauty & the proximity of the region combined with quiet fall weather made us head out to the south-east of Belgium this afternoon for a walk. And on our drive back home through the valleys, along the meanders of a little rushing creek with view on the woods with turning leaves, I thought for a moment that I was in North America, I felt on vacation...



Some boglands just south of the city of Spa


Fall colours...Yes Lilacspecs , we do have fall colours here and there :p. Not red, but some yellow & orange

Heh, actually I said Flanders had no color in the fall and you were in Wallonia. But it's true, the other day I say some nice yellows when we were driving to Lochristi. I even commented on it to CB that you guys did have changing leaves, we just never got to see them living in the city.

Beautiful photos! I love the colors...we have so many beautiful colors here now too. It's great to walk around and enjoy them all :)
I just stumbled onto your blog. I was in Brussels last weekend and loved every minute of it! You have some really nice photos here.

I was in Belgium as a teenager, but was too young to appreciate its beauty. I was only interested in what the local boys were like! Sadly, I was with my parents, so did not have the chance to find out!

What a beautiful walk! You are so fortunate.

Thanks for all of your visits,

Kat
