Wandelen buiten Europa (Wereld)

Xinjiang_KKH_2004_Img0081Wandelen is een passie van De Wandelgek en deze pagina is de ingang tot het echte wandelgedeelte van de site. “De Wandelgek” loopt veel in Nederland, maar ook in het buitenland tijdens verre of minder verre reizen wordt vrijwel altijd wel gewandeld.

 

Op deze pagina vind je links naar posts die een specifieke wandeling buiten Europa beschrijven of een wandelroute kaart bevatten (bijna altijd aanklikbaar). De wandelpagina’s zullen verder foto’s en informatie bevatten over gebruikte wandelkaarten, wandelboeken, etc.
