Sabena cache - Travelbugs Int'l Gateway Traditional Geocache

This cache has been archived.

Pick: I am archiving this cache as most of the visits were done by car, despite the ease of access by public transports or bike.

It is urgent that we all change our behaviours on this planet. Geocachers should understand this as lovers of natural spaces.

Geocache Description:

Easy access with public transports:
- From Brussels Airport: bus 359 (see below)
- Metro 1B Roodebeek (beautiful walk along the Woluwe river)

In the beautiful Valley of Woluwe, a tribute to Belgium's bankrupt airline: SABENA. This cache aims to become Belgium's international gateway for travelbugs and other objects traveling from cache to cache.

Located a few miles away from Brussels Airport, right in front of Sabena's headquarters (Hof Ter Musschen farm), close to Woluwe's Windmill, this cache contains tools to clean ourselves, us Belgians feeling dirty after our National Airline's bankrupty.

This is the place to visit before a trip abroad, as the goal of this cache is to attract travelbugs waiting for a faraway take off.

About what you could bring along, some old Sabena stuff like spoons, napkins, pens, etc... would be really appreciated for this cache.

If you are on a layover in Brussels Airport, take bus 359 (destination: Metro Roodebeek) and get off at "Hof Ter Musschen" (takes about 20 minutes one way, the bus rides at least every hour during the week, less on Saturdays and has no service on Sundays and Bank Holidays). To get back to the airport, take the same bus 359 (destination: Zaventem Luchthaven (=Brussels Airport)). If you have 50 euros to spend, a taxi will get you there, wait for you to do your things and get you back in less than an hour. Ask the driver for Sodehotel Woluwe.

(There are visits of the Hof Ter Musschen area organized by the municipality of Woluwe-St-Lamb. every first Sunday of the month at 10:00am.)

Spoiler: The container is hidden on the ground under old branches.
