For a few days I like to post another photograph. So here is another hiking photograph, one I made this Saturday while walking PieterPad here in The Netherlands. I was hesitating to post another single image, especially image which is nothing more that nice tourist snapshot. Another reason for this hesitation is that I am preparing redesign of this web site.
This new look will not be only cosmetic change, but will mainly focus on set of images and their corresponding text in form of essays. I like to turn from presenting single image to more story like presentation, possibly of some personal themes, which are touching me in recent years.
Back to the another hiking photograph
This country, as you may know is very flat. So flat that is I walk inside of my house to the second floor I probably double the high about sea level. Hiking here is more walking around, but there are some very nice places as well.
I discover myself quite surprise when I decided to walk to next city. Instead of having 10 minute train ride I walked for almost three hours and crossed extremely nice forest, great parks, walked around water channel with boats. It was nice and mind cleaning experience of fourteen kilometers. Surprisingly so as I was expecting just flat surface around fields.
PieterPad is long distance walk of almost 500km. You may find more details on long distance walk web site. Vierka and me we decide to give a try to one last leg in reverse direction. We walked from Maastricht to Spaubeek train station. I was very surprised how we could walk those almost 24km almost completely in beautiful nature. We walked around fields, forests, rivers and small villages. Limburg (as is this part of The Netherlands called) is hilly. It was very pleasant to the eye after the flatness of our place.
