We left early Saturday morning to drive towards Namur by coach. It’s located about 40 km from Charleroi. In Namur, we first went to admire the landscapes that were really cool and quite different from Finland. I was surprised by how much green there was, because I thought that there would not be. Spring was well under way in Belgium and at the rest of the week was already very warm. (The first thing I missed when I came back to Finland!)

After eating we headed back for the bus, which would drive to Maredsous. Maredsous is an old Abbey, which was built in 1892. We had a guided tour of the Abbey premises in English. In Maredsous, cheese and beer are also produced, which are well known in Belgium. After visiting the Abbey we started off back to Charleroi.
