Hi Dimitrii
The first one seems to be Guarbecque or Gaverbeke (in Flemish) (Attention, I think there is also a city with the name Gaverbeke in Belgium) located in the Pas de Calais Department:
https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guarbecque
The second one seems to be Gonnehem, located also in the Pas de Calais Department
https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gonnehem
The distance between the 2 cities is +/- 10km by the road.
Kindly regards from Belgium
Prosper :wink: :wink:
