This morning I left the house of my sister leave the cutest puppy behind, which was a bit of a sad moment.
At 6:20 I was on the road again in the area that I grew up in. The official route was through Gramsbergen all the way around and then back to Hardenberg. I know all these places and I did not see the sense in walking 3/4 km extra for something that I already know, so I didn’t.
After an hour I walked through Hardenberg, amazed that so much has stayed the same, apart from the very, very ugly city hall. It is like mango ice fell into sand and now you have to look at it.
After Hardenberg the view got better, walked in the woods for some time, which was very nice.
Today was harder then other days. I have a blister on the heel of my right foot which is quite painful.
The official route for tomorrow goes to Ommen and back again. I know this area pretty well and it seems to me that it is a very long way around trying to go South. Perhaps the city of Ommen paid the Pieterpad to have to route go back up again and down to basicly the same spot that you started. So I am not gonna do that 🙂
The goal for tomorrow is to walk to Holten, or close to it.
