2014-03-01 - Hiking @ National Park De Groote Peel

On Saturday the first of March we had to go to Limburg, a province in the south east of The Netherlands. On the way back we decided to stop at National Park De Groote Peel. It is a heath land where formerly peat was cut. Today it is a bird-rich area, ideally suited for walkers to enjoy their natural surroundings. It has a marsh and also various wooded areas making it a divers place to hike. We had never visited this National Park before, because it is a bit far from home but we liked it a lot. If we are in the vicinity again in the future we will definitely pay it another visit.

Bellow are some pictures and a GPS track log of this 6+ km hike:

2014-03-22 - Ice skating for the last time this season

Yesterday we went ice skating for the last time this season. Spring is coming so the ice halls are all closing. We drove to The Hague yesterday (no traffic problems due to the National Security Summit yet!) to go skating at De Uithof. It wasn't particularly crowded, but all the usual people were there. We didn't go for a very long time, I guess I skated for about an hour and I took it easy. I ended up skating 45 laps which is 18 kilometers. We now have to wait for about seven months before we get to put on our ice skates again. Lets just hope Spring will be beautiful without much rain so we can go out for regular hikes again.


2014-02-02 - Hiking @ Het Weegje

On Sunday the second of February we went hiking at Het Weegje, a small park with a lake near our home. The weather was pretty nice (more spring then winter) so we decided to do a slightly different route than we usually do here. Along the way we saw various water birds such as the swan, the Eurasian Wigeon, and the Great Crested Grebe who were fishing. We even caught one on camera carrying a fish! We hiked somewhere around 5,8 kilometers on this nice winter day.

Bellow are some pictures and a GPS track log:

2014-03-08 - Ice skating @ De Uithof

Last Saturday I went ice skating at De Uithof again. The ice rink in Rotterdam is now closed for the summer season and will reopen its doors next winter. It had a very successful first run and we are looking forward to going back there again at the end of 2014. We had a busy schedule last Saturday so we didn't go skating for very long. I skated 64 laps which is 25,6 kilometers. We will probably go one or maybe two times more this season before it is time to stash away the ice skates.
