A 5k from Dormagen to Leverkusen

21 September 2016

For some weeks now I try to go by bike to work, at least 2 days a week. The distance from Dormagen to my office in Leverkusen is 19 km. I need about an hour in the morning, which is about 7,500 steps, or roughly about a 5k walk.

The countryside along the Rhine dam is truly beautiful, in particular shortly after sunrise:

Have a good day, and a great 5k.

A 5k walk along the Levada do Caldeirão Verde in Madeira

7 November 2015

During the week from October 26 to 31 we were on vacation in Madeira. We went hiking nearly every day, usually far more than 5 km.

On Saturday we walked along the walkway of the Levada do Caldeirão Verde. Although it was raining almost all day this was the most beautiful hike during our vacation.


We made in total 13 km, but it was fun nonetheless.

Have a good weekend.
