Every time I go out in the High Fens, located in the south-east of Belgium, I am amazed by the minimalist splendour consisting of a lot of twisted dead trees rising high against bleak surroundings. This area is a beautiful nature reserve equipped with several hiking trails, but how satisfying and challenging it is to dive into the wild and be amazed and blown away to leave you with a big smile
