Hiking

Okay, let me start off by telling you why we moved our plans around from going to Oberstdorf to Slovenia for our honeymoon. We have been to Oberstdorf for 2 times in the past year (read about it here, and here) and we absolutely love it there. Two weeks before every trip we make I begin to check the weather forecast daily. It was clear that Oberstdorf wasn't such a good idea based on the...

So it's almost march and spring will be on our doorsteps before we know it. It's also the time I'm starting to make my outdoor plans for 2018. It might be a bit late, but some of them have been on my mind since the past 2 years. I for one can't wait to explore these adventures this year, and of course I'll write all about them in the future! May - Oberstdorf part 3 (Germany) So first...

So when I say I started hiking in 2016, I would be lying just a tiny bit. The first time I really went hiking was years before that and not planned at all. I went hiking in Rurberg around the Obersee. It was near to where I lived back then and it was a beautiful and warm day. I really wanted to go for a walk. It turned into an unplanned 16 km hike. I...

So we've had our fair share of hiking fails during our first year of hiking. We didn't really plan our trip to the Mullerthal trail, we didn't do training for longer distances and I forgot to properly check the map in Oberstdorf (part 2) to see if we would hike around or over a mountain. Which is a big difference of course. So I want to tell you all about our hiking fails so far, so...

The Mullerthal Trail is a trail of 112 km in Luxembourg. It's called Little Switzerland due to the surrounding nature and rock formations you'll encounter on the trail. We hiked our first sections on route 2 of the Mullerthal trail in July 2017 during a badly planned hiking trip.

That'll...

So I've written about hiking in Oberstdorf before in part 1. The second time we went to Oberstdorf was a bit spontaneously since we weren't quite sure if it was a good idea to go on a trip with our newest addition to our family. Zara had been living with us for only 1 month after she'd moved from Curacao. She picked up her new life rather quickly so we decided to give it a...

So we went hiking in Oberstdorf twice now. Before we go for a third and (for now) last time, I'd like to look back on those two trips. Let's start off with the first one. We wanted to go to a place with proper mountains, as close to the Netherlands as possible. After looking at several locations it was clear that Oberstdorf would be a great location to travel to. It was the best decision...

Once upon a time, not so far far away, I started hiking. I don't know why, but I woke up one day feeling it might be a very good idea to go to my horse's stable by bus and walk back home. Not the fastest most direct route, no not quite. The area where my horse lived was near to a great area filled with hills surrounded by thick forest, it's called The Veluwezoom. Hills...
