A Road Less Travelled. The Road to Antwerp Beach – A Journey along the N1
(Derek Blyth) The Low Countries - 2006, № 14, pp. 86-92
When the author of this piece decided to drive from Brussels to Antwerp on the old N1 road, it was partly an attempt to discover the other Flanders, the space between the cities. He imagined that the whole journey would take a day at most. The total distance is 46 kilometres and the speed limit is normally 70 kilometres an hour. Even if he seriously dawdled along the way, he'd be in Antwerp by late afternoon...he thought; but he was wrong, and it took a day to cover the first 18 kilometres and two days to reach the end of the journey.
