After the adventures in 2017, the year 2018 started with getting back to work! I found a new job in another city and since starting there I also moved to that city and now I can go to work on a bicycle which is great 🙂 The last couple of months I’ve been setteling into my new situation, making plans trying to get fit again!
About a month ago I bought a new mountainbike! The city that I am living now has beautiful tracks with a lot of altimeters so I can train the muscles in my legs a lot. Also, I build up some stamina and I think it’s fun to do 🙂 Let’s hope I don’t crash too hard against a tree or something. You can follow my mountainbiking on Strava. I know mountainbiking is not the perfect training for hiking but you are outside, in the woods going on a little adventure trying not to hurt yourself. Also, I think it’s very nice to do it with someone else.
So what about my plans for 2018? Well, I’ve got 2 very small trips planned and 1 quite long hike. The first small trip is a long weekend to Lauwersmeer. This is a national park in the top of the Netherlands. It is very beautiful here with a big lake and a lot of different animals.
The second small trip is going to a concert in Bloemendaal aan Zee and make a weekend out of it. The concert is from Damien Rice and the location is beautiful. So listening to some beautiful melancholy music,
get drunk and walk on the beach.
And what about the hike? Well, it will be around 500 km and I’ve got 3 weeks to make it. Sounds like quite a lot but I think it is doable 🙂 In a next post I will talk about the hike and until then, have a good one! 🙂
