NSR2017, Day 5, 22/10

Day 5, Sunday 22/10,
We woke up in the Castle hotel, skipped breakfast, the others took a swim in the pool and I slept a little more. Check out, pack stuff in car. Then off.
We drove through Dinant. A town with many saxofons. North and then West towards Maredsous and the abbey with Monks making beer, cheese, bread and ham. Perfect for breakfast!
Further south in the Ardennes, in the valley of Meuse. Crossing the border to France and then when we left the national park area we headed out on the motorway towards Reims.
Straight into city center to park the cars along the street, go for lunch and quick glimpse of the cathedral.
When starting up the cars again, the clutch release bearing had quit…
It was very difficult to drive and we had to stop at IKEA in West Reims. We decided to tow to ibis hotel and try to fix the problem. It rained… We finally gave up and booked rooms and then went for dinner in a nearby restaurant. Had a drink at the bowling place and then bed at midnight.
