Where is your black, yellow and red paradise?
For some of us, the closure of the borders has allowed us to discover small, unexpected corners of nature in our country. Others kept outside our borders dream of those places that remind them of family holidays, childhood memories, trips with friends or even places to discover on a future visit.
It only takes just over two hours to drive from the North Sea to Arlon but that doesn't stop Belgium having a very varied natural heritage. From North to South, East to West, there's no lack of places to enjoy the generosity of nature. Beaches, forests, lakes, marshes, rivers...
Take, for instance, the beaches of the North Sea from Westhoek to Zwin, the Kalmthout Heath Nature Reserve in the Province of Antwerp and its numerous marshes. The Lommel Sahara in Limburg and its desert landscapes.
Lake Virelles with its preserved biodiversity in Hainaut, the High Fens-Eifel Nature Park in the eastern cantons, the Fondry des Chiens site and its impressive abyss in the Province of Namur. The trails of the Villers-la-Ville abbey in Walloon Brabant. Not forgetting the Arboretum of Tervuren and the Sonian Forest, the lungs of our capital.
Everyone has their own little corner of nature, their small black, yellow and red paradise where they can recharge. So, where is your slice of paradise?
