ah right!, that would explain why Santiago was signposted as 800 or something kilometers away a few miles down the road, we figured it was probably a pilgrims route or something.


Thanks for correcting me on the Foral/Floral thing, i did just notice that lol, sorry

So how come I did not have to show any passports or anything of the kind personally when I crossed over the English Channel from Dover to Calais about a year and a half ago?

Realistically speaking, they probably know they have nothing much to fear, I guess.

They implanted a tracking device under your skin when you thought you were safe, so they're cool.

10 years ago showing a passport was no big issue going from France to England, then in 2001 they began checking them all and now they do it electronically, but sometimes they are not too bothered again it seems.

Today, I have made a trip to the major border crossing point between the Netherlands and Belgium, Hazeldonk. Here the Dutch A16 continues into the Belgian A1, and both road have the European number E19.

Around the motorway there are some industrial areas: "Transportzone Meer" at the Belgian side and "Hazeldonk" (officially: "Breda 6000-7000")at the Dutch side.

Along the motorway there are 2 parallelroads whch connect both industrial areas (and cross the border, of course).

First I have driven the parallelroad to Belgium, there I have joined the motorway to the first exit after the border, turned towards the Netherlands, left the motorway before the border, and made some pictures at the other parallel-road exactly on the border. As you can see, there is no sign when entering the Netherlands (except on the motorway itself). After that, I have re-entered Belgium and then re-entered the Netherlands again and left the borderarea.

Furthermore, some pictures of the border from Essen (Belgium) towards Roosendaal (Netherlands), where the Belgian N117 continues into the Dutch N262

Heading to Roosendaal


Netherlands: 2km.


Driving to the border.




Approaching the border.




The Border: No sign anyway (but you can see the change in pavement)


Some old trafficlights (this was once a very big crossing, nowadays there is hardly any traffic)


Welcome to the province of Noord-Brabant.


Speedsigns and the first roadsign in the Netherlands.

The N262 is some kind of at-grade expressway, right? I've never been there.

Me neither. I've seen pics of it before though. I don't go to Belgium very often anyway. Though there is no sign there, it's still quite visible. You can really see this was once a big crossing

This is quite usual in Belgium. While Belgium is a very rich country in income, their public space too often looks like some 3rd world country although I don't think they will admit it that easily. Last year, I drove through some U/C local residential street, which was also a through street in Wallonia (near Cheratte) which was just mud with huge holes in it. Other countries would close such a road temporary, but there wasn't even a detour route in effect.

Most Belgian roads used to be quite bad. AFAIK they repaved the worst parts now (can't really tell, last drive in Belgium was 4 years ago)

Yeah, things have improved a lot in Belgium, especially in Flandres, but there's still a long way to go. The economical crisis back in the 70's (I think) hit Belgium much harder than the Netherlands, so many roads constructed back then were constructed on the cheap. Maintenance is still a problem though. But I don't think you compare it very good to the Netherlands, we have extremely well maintained roads, it's like a contrast of day and night.
