Visit a Hare Krishna Community and "The Smallest City in the World!"

For a comfortable break, why not travel to Barvaux and visit the Hare Krishna community of Radhadesh? If you're under 26, any train ticket within Belgium only costs 6 euros online so it's cheap to get there. The temple is beautiful, the food delicious and the guesthouse is comfortable and inexpensive. Free yoga and meditation classes are offered daily. It's a fascinating glimpse into a different style of life. While there I saw a calf be born and got to milk a cow. I also sat in on their religious services as I'm fascinated by various religions; they weren't at all offended to hear I'm an athiest. Nearbu is "the smallest town in the world" AKA Durby, a charming French city in Belgium that reminds one of Hogsmeade in Harry Potter with its cobbelstone streets. The world's largest collection of artistic hedges is there (even one cut to resemble a famous actress!) and not far off is a giant labyrinth to explore.
