HomepageBannerENThis site is meant to inspire people to go on long distance hikes, long journeys and to try and understand people from countries other than our own. Why? That was best put in words by Mark Twain.

On this site you will find hundreds of blogs about the many hikes and travels of The Wandelgek in The Netherlands and Europe but also far beyond. The Wandelgek enjoys traveling to areas where tourism is still in its infancy and that therefore are a purer experience in terms of landscape, people and culture then is possible after they’ve been altered by extensive infrastructural changes.

 

This is a YouTube playlist with favorite songs of The Wandelgek, which will be updated quite often. Enjoy this music on a roadtrip or during a long railway journey!

Below are hiking and travel blogs The Wandelgek wants to bring to your attention, and these will be updated regularly. To the right you’ll find new blog entries and if you use the search bar to the right or the navigation menu you will certainly find what you are looking for. Have fun browsing around!
