Distance Travelled

Approximately 14½ km (9 miles)


Walked from Boxtel southwards through the countryside, at times on a path running parallel to the busy railway lines. Once I arrived in Best I visited the church and neighbouring chapel, both dedicated to Saint Odulf, the ninth century saint, monk and Frisian missionary.

In the city centre I got talking to Barbara and Henny of the Jehovah’s Witnesses, who kindly gave me a free book.
