My trip :
Villy, destroyed by the Germans in 1940 :
Margut, the last French village before Belgium :
We reach Belgium (Province de Luxembourg) with the Abbey of Orval : suddenly the weather becomes rainy.
France is in the forest, Belgium in the plain :
That's irredent France !
The Semois valley :
Deep Ardennes with Corbion and Rochehaut :
Ze Germans are coming.
Somewhere in Province de Namur : the joys of Wallonia.
Froidfontaine and Beauraing :
Then came France and the sun suddenly shone : manifest destiny. Givet and the Meuse river.
Going South alongside the Meuse :
With Renwez end the Ardennes : it's time to visit Charleville that deserves more than just being an overrated poet's birthplace.
The Place Ducale :
Towards Mezières :
Time to come back to Champagne with the highway. Nouvion-sur-Meuse :
The last town in Ardennes : Aussonce as seen from the highway
Then comes the austere département of Marne : Lavannes.
