I will be attending the University of Leuven- KU Leuven (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven) in September of 2015 for my yearlong master program and am trying to get a game plan for my housing options. I do see university housing as a possibility, but would like to explore the options of living in apartments/renting something for that year. I would love any suggestions or websites for finding long term and affordable housing would be much appreciated!
Also, I am a backcountry trekker and tent camper and am curious of any suggestions for best National Parks in Belgium/ or countries near Belgium (weekend trips). And would like suggestions for longer weeklong backpacking trips in Central/Eastern Europe countries (Hungary, Slovenia, Romania, Czech Republic). These could be hikes in parks or scenic strings of cities/villages.
Thanks for your time and feedback.
