Wandelaar, altijd nieuwsgierig naar wat er 'voorbij de volgende bocht' en 'achter de volgende heuvel' ligt. Met interesse voor de geschiedenis en het ontstaan van het landschap. Van korte frisseneuswandelingen tot langere dagtochten. Verzot op meerdaagse tochten, met het liefst overnachtingen in de wildernis.
Mijn camera gaat altijd mee op pad, een deel van mijn foto´s vind je hier op Komoot. Een ander deel op Picfair, een platform voor stockfotografie:
Where was I... walk number 10 in the 'Christmas Flood Series'. From Den Andel to Westernieland, Pieterburen, Broek, Wierhuizen, Kaakhorn and back to Den Andel. Past churches and windmills, birds with a 'tempered' character, past 'Pieterpadters' and onions, lots and lots of onions.
Walked on roads with the name 'Oude Dijk' in various places. At the time of the Christmas Flood, the dike that should have held back the water was located here. The Christmas Flood took the lives of many people in this region. In Westernieland, for example: 79 of 200 inhabitants drowned. Of the 50 houses, 35 were washed away. In Pieterburen, 70 people first drowned during the Saint Martin flood of 1686, 31 years later during the Christmas flood another 179. It is a miracle that the village is still there....
Walk number ten in a series along places in Groningen that were affected to a greater or lesser extent by the Christmas flood in 1717. Based on the book 'Christmas flood 1717, a pilgrimage' by Piet Nienhuis. I have collected all my Christmas Flood Walks in the Collection: komoot.nl/collection/1108384/-langs-de-grens-van-de-kerstgoot-1717?ref=undefined

Walk through the Helpman district, on the south side of the city of Groningen. There is so much to see there! Chic villas and old parks, through the hamlet of Essen, along bright orange balconies, through the Europa Park, over the Kempkensberg (with the DUO office, also known as the cruise ship), the adjacent Sterrebos and along the Helperdiepje. Largely based on the Helperpad route.

Walk on both sides of the Zeegser Loopje, one of the many streams that together with many other streams form the Drentsche Aa. Included in the collection 'Stroomdal Drentsche Aa': komoot.nl/collection/1108015/-het-stroomdal-van-de-drentsche-aa?ref=undefined

Crooked facades, not normal! And strangely enough, they usually lean forward, not backward. Many buildings hold each other up in my opinion. Very special. All in all, a walk through Hoorn is highly recommended: the beautiful Roode Steen square, beautiful streets, crooked facades, beautiful quays and an impressive Hoofdtoren.

Just wandering through Haarlem. Sweet courtyards, green alleys, old facades, impressive buildings, several museums. A church that is now a brewery and pub (Jopenbier) and for a moment on the terrace Bij Babette where 'the iced coffee frostier is than the Queens feelings towards Meghan Markle' 😊. Let Haarlem slide.
