Weekend means free time! It’s a great opportunity to share a nice drive and travel along scenic routes. If you’re not sure how to plan this trip, this short article will give you a roadmap for a purely enjoyable experience.
A real adventure
- Set a goal: the restaurant with a beautiful terrace over the Semois you’ve heard about, discover Borgloon’s transparent church, or even a temporary exhibition... have an activity as a destination.
- Let your journey be determined by chance, let the landscape guide you along the road whilst aiming for your final destination. If you get lost, don't worry, you can activate the navigation system or your passenger can use a mobile app. You could even immerse yourself in a good road map. Outdated as it may seem, it is still a real source of information.
- Vary your route: winding roads, a panorama, a picturesque route or a castle. It takes a bit of preparation, but it is ultimately very rewarding to follow a selected route with care rather than blindly obeying a GPS voice.
A bit more organised
- Search on the internet for a tourist itinerary for visiting one of the beautiful regions of our country.
- Follow a marked tourist route using the hexagonal signs, even if they are not always easy to find.
- Sign up for an outing with a car club to experience the pleasure of a finely tuned course. There are all kinds of clubs and tourist rallies. Your passenger becomes your co-pilot and communicates detailed information from the roadbook to you. This is a perfect opportunity for your team or family to discover and enjoy the 'spires and steeples'. These trips are sometimes accompanied by challenges. Count churches or wind turbines, identify photos taken along the route or do a quiz about the places you pass. All the ingredients you need for a great day out.
The car is always an ally to escaping and discovering great things. These moments can be shared with friends or on social media. #BonneRoute!
