On holiday in your own country! That was the message due to the corona pandemic this summer. And of course the local media responded to this and started looking for fun outings in their own region.
On Wednesday 8 July 2020, a camera crew from the RTBF entered the parking lot of the lake of Nisramont. Hilarious moments ensued: a camera crew and presenter in wetsuit, on the paddleboard, in exciting positions while the equipment had to be absolutely dry! A morning to remember.
Bienvenue Chez Vous!
And that was not all. "Matélé" with their tourism show "Bienvenue chez vous" came by to get some footage. For these recordings we had made an appeal on Facebook to find a number of extras. We went out with a nice group of people. And these extras turned out to be avid dog lovers. They returned five more times that summer to paddle with their dogs!
Here is some of the footage:
Papers and magazines
In addition to film recordings, we received calls from various journalists from newspapers and magazines, such as "Femme d'Aujourd'hui" and "De Standaard". The telephone interviews resulted in nice articles.
