Belgium – you may want to go to Holland, Sir!

We stayed in a campsite that used to be a Spanish fort made of sand, the Fort of Bedmar, on the outskirts of the town of De Klinge. If any film director is looking for a completely empty town to film a post apocalyptic 1950’s style film, De Klinge is the perfect place. No need to even remove the residents, they don’t go out of their houses and the place is deserted!
The campsite owner summed it up, “if you want anything decent to see or eat, go to Holland”.

De Klinge Casino also has to rate as one of the more interesting contradictions. The advertising literature really does not tell the whole story. See below the close up of the entrance that could easily make its way onto the advertising literature…       then the reality.

The advertising literature that draws you in

This is what you actually see when you arrive, the literature did show the entrance, honest!

Saying that, the campsite was fine and we left for Germany (via Holland).
