    Hiking the Müllerthal Trail in Luxembourg

    There certainly is no lack of awesome multi-day treks around The Netherlands, but sometimes the weather doesn’t want to cooperate. My boyfriend and I have decided to head out on a multi-day trek over the Easter weekend, however the forecast looks pretty horrendous. In The Netherlands it doesn’t look good at all and the same goes for Germany and most parts of Belgium. We head out to visit a local bookstore specialized in travel books and maps but don’t find what we need straight away. #FirstWorldProblems occur however a few hours later we decide to head out to Luxembourg and hike a section of the Müllerthal Trail in Luxembourg.

    Urban Outdoors: Cycling in Luxembourg City

For many of us, Dutch…

    The best destinations for newbie hikers

    So … you wanna be a hiking trail tiger? You want to go hiking but usually don’t go further than a Sunday stroll through the park? And want to see if hiking is something you would like to do with a pack on your back? Unless you want to be the next Cheryl Strayed, I would definitely recommend to prepare well for setting off on your first big hiking adventure. Sure, you can probably reach 4.200 meters on the Inca Trail or do river crossings in Iceland without practise, but if you will enjoy it, is questionable. When we started planning our multi-day treks, we made sure to hike a…
