After my 60 km ultra hike in October, I concentrated first on my running training. I also put that on hold for a while when I picked up streak running. However, after just about half a year, my feet were tingling again, and I wanted to find out again what it was like to hike …
Two hikes for an Easter weekend Since I had two days free time on the Easter weekend, I naturally wanted to use it for two hikes. I also laced my shoes and off we went. Sunday, April 4th, 2021 Saxon Switzerland is always beautiful and there is still so much to discover. This time there …

What is a 10-20-30 weekend? It’s simple: 10 km hike on Friday, 20 km hike on Saturday and 30 km hike on Sunday. Sounds easy enough at first, but I’ve added a few challenges in the meantime.

That should change a bit with this weekend, without interrupting my Streak. It was not easy, but doable. Where I was and what I saw, you can see in the following sections.
Still under the influence of the restrictions, we stayed in the nearby area this week. Incredibly, what beautiful corners you can discover here too. Weather-wise, everything was there between spring-like sunshine and cold shadows with snow.

For the weekend snow was announced, however, we are still under the restriction of a 15 km radius in which we are allowed to move. Unfortunately, it looks like it will not work out this year with Saxon Switzerland, the snow and me, but for that we have found a good alternative.
Because of the pandemic, we start this year with a 15 km radius restriction again. Sure, I like to go a little further away to go hiking, but there are always enough things to discover in the near surroundings.
Beautiful places can be nearby too
