Running Adventures

Since arriving in Amsterdam, I have taken a few runs around various parks in the Netherlands to escape the noise, crowds, and the smell of cannabis wafting out of coffeeshops. So far I have been very impressed! Not straying very far away from the city, I have found fantastic landscapes, impressive wilderness areas, and the familiar high that only running through a forest can induce. Here is short summary of my wanderings:

Zuid Kennemerland

Sand dunes, forest, beaches, plenty of bike trails. Beware of dead bodies.

Oostduinpark and Scheveningen

More sand dunes and beaches. Scheveningen was a crowded tourist destination but pretty with blue skies and sun.

Texel Island

An hour train ride north brought me and Max to this island with expansive tidal flats, sand dunes, quaint villages, herds of sheep, picturesque Dutch farmland, and dikes!
