The road to Monschau is switching between Germany and Belgium. During the trip I received several SMS notifying me about the country I am in. The bus leaves from the center of Aachen and stops right at the entrance of the old town.

Small, beautiful and quiet, Monschau it’s a perfect location for meditation. On the Panoramaweg, in the woods, a bench is waiting for you to help you forget about everything and fall slowly and deeply in the charm of the town.

We visited the town right after New Year’s Eve and the reminiscence of a fascinating Christmas was around us. The houses were still decorated, lights shining on the streets and usual Christmas scenes were at every square. In my imagination I added snow and it was the perfect picture for a book.
