    April Exercise Challenge

    April month has been a great month – Weather-wise and “hiking wise”. I entered a new virtual challenge on the 20th of April. As I’ve mentioned earlier, I’m doing a new virtual challenge every month. The latest challenge is one of the hikes you will find at Pacer Virtual Adventure Challenges, and it’s called The Great Ocean Walk.

    How To Hike Iceland – The Volcano Island

    Iceland – The volcano island, also known as The land of fire and ice is on my travel bucket list. This is a destination I’ve been dreaming of for a long time. Iceland is known for its magnificent wild nature, and is a mecca for hikers.

Iceland was then a free state until the 13th century, when the country was subject to the Norwegian king. After the Reformation in 1536, Iceland formally became part of Denmark. In 1918, Iceland…

    Workout Monthly Challenges

    I’ve always loved a challenge and I’ve decided to join a new challenge every single month of 2021. It is both rewarding and healthy to participate in various challenges. I am, as probably everyone who reads my articles has realized by now, completely dependent on nature, and it’s therefor natural for me to find outdoor challenges. 2021 can only be better than the year we just left behind – The year when Covid-19 happened. I’m looking forward getting the vaccine, and getting back to the new normal. I hope you will join me on my journey of 2021, and maybe even participate in my new idea; Workout monthly challenges –…

    How To Get Started With Hiking

I have learned to like this activity in my adult years – We were not very active hikers when I was growing up, but we have always been surrounded by forest, sea and nature. This has probably been an underlying reason why I have learned to love hiking – In the woods, on the beach and in the mountains … anywhere basically. Do you ever dream of tying your shoelaces, packing your backpack and go for a hike in nature? Let’s take a closer look at how to get started with hiking.…
