September 1: For now the last garden stay in the garden of a lovely couple (Bastogne)
Tuesday evening around 6 pm I arrived in Bastogne at the house of my ‘Welcome to my garden’ host family Julien and Virginie and their daughter Rose and son Arsene.
I had just received the news that a close friend’s illness had taken a bad turn and so I decided to interrupt my trip. When Julien heard about this, he immediately offered to take me to the train station in Libramont, 35 km further, the next morning. It would have been a very tiring and slow journey by bus.
It’s really heartening that someone you barely know wants to help you that way. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Julien and Virginie for their warm-human reaction.
