Earlier this year I posted about the #getagrip campaign of INOV8. You could win a trip to Keswick in the UK. I’m pleased to let you know that I’m one of the winners. I’m invited to come by for a weekend of trailrunning.
We zitten alweer een week in 2017 of noem het tweeduizendzeventien en ja ook ik maak mijn lijstje voor 2017 bekend. Ik doe niet aan voornemens want dan zeg je eigenlijk dat alles het jaar er voor minder goed was. Maar ik zet wel ideeën en plannen alvast op de kalender.

Here I talk about being active in the outdoor and sometimes about travelling. I write mostly in my native Dutch language and sometimes in English, but google translate will help you with that.
