Having just got back into training after a too long off the bike, you really start to notice things that normally just pass you by.
Today I notice just how many houses are left derelict here. They are the kind of houses that in the UK would be snapped up by developers and converted in luxury houses, or barn conversions. It really is a shame the young Belgians don’t see the beauty in these old houses, and prefer to build new houses in their place.
Today we saw a pretty exceptional house on our ride. It looks as though it was someones dream house in the past, and surrounded by beautiful outbuildings. But unfortunately, the whole site is empty and fulling in on itself. Such a shame as it’s hill top location would make for an amazing place to live.
It wouldn’t be a bad place to return home to after training, that’s for sure.
