Belgium 2015

For a decade the Belgium Muscles team have built an outstanding reputation for their generosity and hospitality.  As a result of the 2014 project at Tongerlo Abbey, US Muscles team members Frank and Amy Soto extended an invitation to the Belgians to visit the Pacific Northwest of the USA and enjoy ‘American Hospitality’.

The offer was accepted and for three weeks in August 2015, Johan, Else, Evelien and Lissa, Rob, Ann and Marieke toured the west coast from California to Canada while based at Frank and Amy’s house in Issaquah near Seattle.

Outrageous fun on the Oregon coast sand dunes for both families.

Seven hikes in six days, dune buggy racing in Oregon, zip trekking in the Rocky mountain area of Whistler, Canada – its all a bit too much for Captain Johan !
