I participated in an excursion to the region Avesnois in France near the Belgian border which had been organized for the seniors of our city. Located in the south of the Nord d├ępartement, it is so green that it is known as "The Little Normandy of the North". A little paradise for green tourism, hiking and cycling... It is an area that was classified as a Regional Nature Park in 1998 and which is famous for its wooded countryside, its forest-covered slopes ...

We only saw this through the bus windows and unfortunately not too much because it rained a lot the whole day.

we were in the green bus

But the purpose of this excursion was not for the landscape but  visiting the industrial life of this region in the past. So the rain didn't bother us too much.

We first stopped in Fourmies where we were served a cup of coffee and a huge croissant.
