    Hiking at Hagen Wehringhausen

    I wrote last week that winter has arrived. Things didn’t change a lot this week. The only thing is that for some reason this weekend got spared. In such an unexpected nice weather in October, it wasn’t surprising that there…

    Hiking from Zerkall to Blens!

    Since the beginning of this year, I don’t use MeetUp anymore. Instead I post the events on FB and Telegram. It didn’t attract a lot of people until the last time. There, however, I was told that it might make…

    Hiking around Engelskirchen

    It was only last year that we started to hike in the VRS area and now I’m starting to understand which areas I like and which ones I don’t. Engelskirchen, which was our destination today, is one of my favorite…
