It was a wonderful adventure! Vacationing on a bicycle is something I've always been curious about, but there was something that stopped me from taking the leap and trying it myself. Slowby was the impetus I needed to get over my hesitation - it was a great first introduction to what will hopefully be many more car-free and care-free trips in the future.
During the trip, we bicycled about 150km over three days and stayed two nights with Welcome To My Garden hosts. Both places were so unique, in one we were welcomed at a local co-housing project and in the second, slept in a pasture surrounded by very friendly donkeys. Both of these places would not have been on our radar without Slowby, so it was a really great chance for a new and unexpected experience. Happily, the weather was perfect and we found the bicycle infrastructure very well-maintained along the route. We saw some beautiful scenery that we didn't realise existed in Flanders and feel like we know the region much better now - it's great for newcomers who are trying to get to know Belgium.
The trip was a wonderful experience and I now feel equipped to plan a second trip myself!
