Good walk this morning and I was able to see all the way to the ocean from the Crest Lookout. Good to see the flowers alive and well. God bless you and your family.

p.s. Going on travel for a few weeks, will post again when I get back, taking all my camino gear including backpack and baston de madera, and hopefully will get some good photos on the mountains and canyons.

Walking the local roads still as the ground is so wet. The water is still running down the road in many places.
More white violets and now primroses as well as gorse are in flower.

Plane first, then car, then train, and a lot of walking... where did I go? Not to tax your brains too much: I was in Coimbra, and from there went to Lisboa for a couple of days. The photo with the roof was taken in a building where academics were imprisoned, to save them from the vulgar mobs in ordinary prisons. It was in use till early C20. Typical crime: Plagiarising. As ever was. Portugal had an illustrious past, and this is shown in many of its wonderful historic buildings. For those with interest in the not serious thread, note the elephants... And the serious gent, courtesy of Rodin, in the Gulbenkian Museum, a treasure.

Found this sign outside Canterbury Cathedral in England. Apparently Rome is only 1800 km away so thought I'd give it a try. Gave up at the coast after 30km as I didn't fancy a swim. Will try again from the other side of the Channel.

My local walk in southwest France takes me past this abandoned pigeonnier (dovecote) and the fields are full of various wildflowers, including these Lady Orchids. Impressive storm clouds on the horizon this morning but I was able to avoid the rain.

Walking with camino friends in Holland and then England before heading to Spain on April 23. This past week, near Groningen - a lovely walk that followed along a small part of the Pieterpad and to a hunebed in Drenthe.

There are many different Pilgrim Routes and Caminos in life.
This is my walks the last couple of days:

Short 4-5 km walks around my small Island of Trossö.

Friday even smaller walk around my car when I changed the tires from winter to summer tires.

Saturday I rented a trailer and went to Kalmar to help a friend buy a new bedframe, and had a walk around IKEA.

Sunday walked to the gym and then went over to my friend to assemble the bed for him. So i strolled around the bedroom a few times..

And today we have amazing 18° C in the shadow. I have been down in the basement to bring my table and chairs out, and up and out to the balcony. No more winter! Now I´m going to have some lunch and then off for a walk to my allotment/garden to look if the birdhouses I biult have any birds in them yet. Then of to buy some flowers for the balkony.

Spring is in the air!

how was it for you to walk there ?
It was fantastic, Peter, to be up on the dyke, the sea on one side and the (relatively) new land on the other - with the cool wind off the sea and walking on land so flat that all the lines of sight were disappearing to points far on the horizon. It felt like the meseta on steroids (and I do like the meseta). There were birds everywhere, too; geese, ducks, shorebirds...everyone headed north (@FamPed no doubt your birdhouses will soon have occupants, if they do not already!).
On the way back we drove through Pieteburen, with its beautiful church - and the beginning of the Pieterpad.

I've begun a more serious regimen on the Camino here, down from the top of the Maritime Alps at La Turbie down to the once-a-month Pilgrim Office at Carnolès by Menton on the Italian border of the Way to Rome.

Historic Camino on the ancient Aurelia that is, not the mountain-hugging GR route.

It is a beautiful training hike, filled with History & Tradition, simplicity and altitude, locality and love.

Greetings to the good decent people of this forum. Gorgeous weather in my walking area with temperature at 74f/23c., and not a cloud in the skies. During my walks I check for interesting/different type of road signs, today I took a photo of a good one. The Pacific Ocean is about two kilometers from this point, but this is a low elevation area. You do not see many of those signs here in the United States of America. I talk with mother nature during my walks, and count my blessings. Closing now, God Bless you and your family. And to all caminantes heading to Santiago de Compostela, ánimo, la luz de Dios alumbra su camino.

As the most of you know by now, my hometown is built on Islands.
Yesterday I went for a walk, I left my Island of Trossö, over the tiny Island Ekholmen, to the Island of Saltö, then on to the Island of Dragsö, were I went to a peninsula called Brändaholm.
There are the sweetest small red and white cottages with tiny gardens. They are just lovely! (IMHO) The sun was out for the most parts, but the winds where strong. In all I walked 9 km, and enjoyed every minute. :)

Do you want to see some picturesque photos from my walk yesterday? I thought so.. ;)

A beautiful but very touching and somber walk today to the memorial at Kamp Westerbork. The daffodils are blooming, and spring is just beginning here - life (for now) has prevailed here and in the world. Long may it be so.

It's indeed very touching.
People can walk the " Westerbork pad " .
That begins at the Amsterdam central station and ends at Kamp Westerbork after 340km.
It's almost everywhere beside the train track as a remember off the transports to Kamp Westerbork .
For more info you can check the website,It's also in English.

Some but not all, and other routes too.
Weather yesterday was a lot better than it has been in the last week, so have backpack will travel. We did have a lot of rain overnight with some nice big puddles to wade through. I know it's nothing like the present VDLP but some are above the shoe.
Having done this walk so many times I didn't realise that I was encountering Yellow Arrows.
This next bit is not for the faint hearted.
Do the paths look familiar.

IMG_1001.jpg IMG_1002.jpg IMG_1005.jpg IMG_1006.jpg

This was the first walk I've done with a full weight backpack, I've been building up to it for a while. The total journey length was supposed to be in the region of 20 miles, but I have to confess I was shattered by the time I got to the 14 mile mark (age must be taking its toll (now where did my 60's g). I had to call for a pick up, but hay ho, plenty more training required for those long stretches on the VDLP.
I guess if I want to reduce my pack weight below 7.5 kg (including 1.5 kg of water) I might have to think about doing the full monty;)

You are so right, you'd think at my age I'd know better. Played around with the pack today, went shopping and managed to drop nearly a kilo off the weight.
Forward plan is gently gently.

Later I wanted to check the conditions on my favorite path by the river, but there are still snow and thick layers of ice.

Buenas tardes to all the good decent people of this forum. Awesome weather. Today I went on a "slow but steady" walk, exactly what my body and mind needed. Catching up here with all the recently posted photos (thanks everyone for all the good photos). Also thanks Mister Peter for the link to the website of Kamp Westerbork. Good history refresher, we just cannot ignore history (those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it, attributed to Jorge Santayana). Time for me to close this note. God Bless you and your family. To all caminantes heading to Santiago de Compostela, ánimo, la luz de Dios alumbra su camino.

Thank you again, Peter. Already there is an unfolding idea (that came from someone else when I mentioned it) to walk the last part of this route as part of a retreat. And thinking...2020...perhaps to walk more or the entire length of it as a conscious walk of remembrance. We all find this very touching. And now it seems especially important.

Short walk around town today followed by a walk behind the lawnmower (at last) for Terry. The ground is finally drying out.

Buen dia to all caminantes. What a great day here! Good visibility all the way to the distant mountains, the city, and to the ocean. Blue skies, calm winds, temperature 56f/13c. Not kidding, today I needed a good walk to decompress my brain, so, overall a very satisfying walk this morning, covering a good distance--on my way home coming downhill I stopped at this point, said a prayer, and took this photo. Closing my post now, wishing YOU a good walk. God Bless you and your family.

Finally a sunny day to walk :). Not that far and no new pictures today.
However last night we had this sparrow hawk sitting on our fence. No need to walk to see wildlife. Sadly we think it is waiting for the baby blue-tits to emerge.

Buen dia caminante! Good weather this morning, surrounded by innocent animals, and the birds announcing my presence as I passed by. Slow-paced walk--today during my walk I prayed for peace, and enjoyed Mother Nature. Interesting sign on trail courtesy, bikes yielding to walkers, and bike and walkers yielding to horses. Closing now, have a good day, God bless you and your family,.

Thanks for the photo of the hawk, and I concur, no need to walk to see wildlife. I see a hawk hiding on my tree about eight feet from my computer deck, just outside the glass window. He likes to take a break there, then he flies away to find some food. I leave him alone, I shall not interfere with Mother Nature. God bless you and your family, y que la luz de Dios alumbre su camino.

New Zealand being just a hop, skip and a jump away from Melbourne, Australia (in reality a 3hr plane trip), I thought why not see what amazing walks and scenery this country has to show off?! It did not disappoint! Photos cannot do justice for the many beautiful landscapes I was lucky enough to experience in my time spent there of recent days. Photos below are of my two most memorable walks: The Tongariro Alpine Crossing (North Island) and Rob Roy Glacier Track in Wanaka (South Island).

Cheers kirkie! Today another blossomwalk of five k.
Organised by our friends of the day activity centre and a regional walking federation.
Our patients and some of my workmates went out for a beautiful walk. Very proud of them seeing it was 27 degrees Celsius and taking into consideration that most of them take sometimes quite alot of medication.
No pics due to privacy reasons.
Also very happy to see the integration went so well : our people from sheltered living and alot of neighbours.

Thank you, @krisobn82 for the beautiful pics and the huge hit of nostalgia! Tongariro NP was once my weekend playground. But...OMG!OMG!...it looks like an ant trail now. I guess it's the same thing as the Camino.

And good on you, Sabine! Well done, you.
All I have is last evening's amble through the forest around the very beautiful centre where I am. I am too occupied with what I am doing to have time to walk much! But the weather has been glorious. 20180418_234707.jpg

As far as my side of the house, rainy morning, but I was able to take care of my daily walk. Had to do a fast-paced walk in order to beat the rain (photo taken about two hours prior to the storm clouds arrival). Animo! No pares de caminar.

It's very nice to walk over to Naddi Village, 2,000 m. We can go down to the river, climb up to some temples, and pet the newly View attachment 41606 View attachment 41607 View attachment 41608 View attachment 41610 View attachment 41611 sheep as we pass by.

And I can only say I exceeded my daily target of 10,000 with only one photo to show for it. And the photo will not be of interest to anyone outside of Ireland really. It is of a plaque on a wall in Carlow railway station. It reads thus:

Later in the year you will see why I was near that plaque. And it was an absolutely glorious day. Will we have another such? This is Ireland, every day a surprise.

All that we are is the result of what we have thought.

Buenos dias, caminantes! Satisfying walk this morning, gorgeous weather, not a single cloud in the skies. On the photo, a very quiet place, but this is dangerous terrain, someone placed a tall cruz de madera (wooden cross) on top of the canyon, possibly for protection. Closing now, wishing you a good walk, animo, no pares de caminar.

Peter, please can you show us where you walked today?
We know where you are and we all like that place. A lot.;)

I'm in Naarden for a several more weeks, with time to walk only for an evening, so I do a short ramble at sunset. The leaves are really coming out with this warm weather! 20180420_202510.jpg 20180420_202654.jpg

Buenos dias caminantes. A lot of walking on concrete this morning, but we got it done. Returned to Mi Casa Humilde, went to the back yard, and it was all quiet, I believe el halcón malo (the bad hawk) is hiding somewhere in our plants (photo attached), the place is usually alive with birds and their songs, but not this morning, it feels really strange. Closing now for a couple of weeks, hitting the road on travel, but taking all my walking gear with me. Animo, no pares de caminar.

p.s. Have a happy Earth Day 2018 (April 22).

This weekend I walked the Heartland Trail from Park Rapids MN to Walker MN. 48km (almost 30 miles). Very beautiful walk through hills and trees. Oh and quite a bit of snow and ice, that was a surprise.

It was a great test for my upcoming Camino in May. I trekked 20km the first day and stayed overnight. Then I finished it off with a 28km trek to my final destination. I learned quite a bit of what works and what doesn’t with my equipment.
