About Guus V

Sinds mijn pensioen in 2015 heb ik veel meer tijd om te wandelen. Wandelen deed ik altijd al met veel plezier.
Ik maak onderweg graag foto's en doe dat met mijn telefoon en met mijn fototoestel. Die laatste, een Nikon P900, gebruik ik met name voor het vastleggen van vogels en andere "ver weg" dieren. Maar ook een vliegtuig op 10 kilometer hoogte met deze camera fotograferen, vind ik leuk om te doen.
Komoot maakt het wandelen voor mij nog leuker door de mogelijkheid zelf een route uit te zetten. En ik leer via Komoot aardige mensen kennen.
Ik heb al de nodige lange afstand paden gelopen in mijn leven waaronder: het Pieterpad, het Naoberpad, het Trekvogelpad, het Drenthe- en het Twenthepad. Evenals: het Krijtlandpad, de Stelling van Amsterdam en het Westerborkpad. In Ierland liep ik de Dingleway en in Schotland de West Highlandway.
Op dit moment loop ik de Hünenweg en ben ik bezig met het IJsselpad.
Ik nodig je van harte uit me te volgen op Komoot. Ik zal je niet overvoeren met foto's en vind het leuk om steeds wat te vertellen over mijn wandeling. Welkom!
-Guus-

      I walk the Hünenweg with a few former colleagues. Today there were five of us.

      I already started in Osnabrück before Corona and have now progressed to my hometown of Emmen. A home race with mostly familiar paths. Through the beautiful Oosterbos and the Emmerdennen on the north-eastern side of Emmen. Many

    1. This year marks 140 years since Vincent van Gogh lived and worked in Drenthe for some time. To mark this occasion, there are all kinds of activities in our beautiful province, focusing on Van Gogh.

      There are also a number of signposted walks. I walked the longest of them today. Eighteen kilometers from

    1. My wife had to be in Coevorden for a consultation. Drove along to Dalen, where I got out for a walk of an hour and a half. Because then the meeting would be over.

      A detour without any fuss, not selected for the beautiful surroundings, without many photos. But nevertheless just a nice walk.

    1. Walked on Schokland, the former island in the Zuiderzee. We had a family day there today and wanted to do this walk along the old borders of Schokland. Due to the heat, the walk was done before the start of the family day. A good choice, which we gladly got up early for.

      A nice walk along a few historical

    1. Phew, phew, that was a walk in the full sun today and it wasn't easy. Another beautiful, varied route along the IJssel, between Baak and Zutphen. And Zutphen in the sun is also a super beautiful city, where it is nice to relax on the IJssel.

      At the end of September we will continue the IJsselpad. I don

    1. On this beautiful day I walked the third stage of the IJsselpad, from Dieren to Baak. Crossed the river by ferry, a nice start.

      Today we walked a little further away from the IJssel, so we spotted less shipping.

      Through the small but beautiful town of Bronkhorst. Now that the school holidays are over

    1. Today a beautiful walk in the northeast of the province of Groningen near the Eemsdelta. A walk largely on the seawall: blue sky, beautiful clouds, views, seals, birds, etc.

      The picturesque village of Termunten with its beautiful church on a mound. The church was open and the tower could be climbed. Then

    1. Started this walk at a quarter to five this afternoon. For a change, a "late-afternoon-early-evening" walk. Car parked at the Hunebed Center in Borger. A nice museum, also for children (hunebedcentrum.eu).

      A pleasant walk through a nice area, at least most of it. The cloudy skies were at their best again

    1. The second stage of the IJsselpad. Parked the car at P&R (free) Dieren and then took the bus back to Giesbeek, today's starting point.

      It was less sunny and less warm than last Monday and that was nice.

      The IJssel landscape slowly passed us; an advantage of the walking pace.

      Also nice are all the boats

    1. Started today on the IJsselpad, 177 km between Westervoort and the end of the IJssel estuary beyond Kampen. This first route ran from Westervoort to Giesbeek, over more than 18 km.

      The first part at Westervoort is beautiful and wonderfully quiet. You can see up close the point where the IJssel splits
