28th of July: Camping IJzerhoeve: Wendy supports Street Nurses vzw


When I arrived in the centre of Diksmuide at about 5:30 pm, I checked on my phone until when the reception of Camping IJzerhoeve was open. It appeared to close at that very moment. I then decided to call immediately and inform them that I was on my way. I was still shopping and back to the camping was at least half an hour walking.


Wendy made an oral arrangement right away so that I could get a key to the ladies’ bathroom. When I was on my way to the campsite some time later, she passed me. With that big backpack on my back I am easily recognizable.


We immediately arranged the camping fee because she wouldn’t be there the next morning. Wendy manages the campsite all by herself. When I gave her a flyer, she immediately dropped part of the camping fee, despite the difficult corona times.


The next day – I had stayed longer than usual because of the very good Wi-Fi connection that allowed me to update the weekly photo albums on Flickr – Wendy told me she used to be a social worker. She also gave me some tips about where I could meet homeless people in Ieper (Ypres). So I will probably stay in Ypres for two days.


Gifts for my walk for Infirmiers de Rue asbl can be made via their website, stating ‘gift walk eva’. Many thanks in advance.
