I woke up quite early, had some breakfast in the hotel and I was ready to go walking! Unfornately I had to wait almost 2 hours for the bus. Listening to some music and had some coffee, the time went pretty fast.
For today I found a camping right in the city of Groningen, in a parc. So that was my goal for today.
After a 20 minute bus ride in a very hot bus I really could start walking. The sun was out and already shining hard down on me. In my opinion, you have got a couple of choices, wear the bare minimum and use a lot of suncream which I dont like or wear enough clothes to protect yourself from the sun. In opted for the clothes, which I think after walking is not a bad option, but you do need suncream. My hands were getting a lot of sun, also my ears.
There were a handful of people also walking. I have walked for more then an hour with a man and we had nice talk. The sun was burning hard so tomorrow I want to start as early as possible! So when the heat really starts coming, I want to be at my next stop.
The stadspark camping Groningen is not expensive for just a small tent like mine, 9,95 including the tax is fair. There are more small tents around then I would have guessed! But most of them arent hikers I guess because the tents are quite heavy 🙂 bikers probably.
Right now I am drinking a cold beer in the shade. Will make dinner some time later and go to bed quite early.
