Last summer, I hiked 32 km from Cuijk to Nijmegen, by way of the Mookerheide. Day two started quite sunny! I took it easy, had my breakfast, freshened up and aired out my tent. Even though it’s a double-walled tent, there was still condensation. Maybe it was also because of the way the inner tentContinue reading “Mookerheide hike – day 2”

My Dusty Flip-Flops had nominated me for the 10-day photo challenge, which I happily took on! She grabbed the idea of doing a recap from someone else and I decided to nab it from Dusty. So here is my recap. Hope you’ll enjoy! Day 1: Sólheimajökull, Iceland A visit to a glacier obviously couldn’t beContinue reading “Travel photo challenge recap”
