My World Tuesday

Last week I spent a few days in the Belgian Ardennes near Durbuy. I think it is the most beautiful part of Belgium. It has historic places and a wonderful scenery.
The first thing that strikes you in Durbuy is the imposing castle build in the 11th century on a rock overlooking the small town located at the river Ourthe. Most houses are built of Ardenese stone and have a real ancient look. Almost all of them are restaurants or hotels. Never seen so many in a small town.

Oh, how lovely! The beautiful old, old castles in Europe were one of the things I enjoyed so much, those and the little old towns, with their narrow streets. Living is such a young country, it has always been wonderful for me to be able to see and enjoy so many really historic places -- in time if nothing else! Love your photos!! Have a great week!
