Discovery trail - Path of Happiness, Sornetan

"I decided to go on the discovery trail, which is suitable for all age groups, together with my family. It starts at the church, and from there a marked path leads to the different stations. These suggest activities to discover the senses and elements, encouraging the visitors to ponder upon their sentiments and thoughts. We also really enjoyed the beautiful landscapes we encountered on our walk. At the end, we recorded our impressions and experiences in the golden book in the church."
