What we're about

This meetup is to facilitate walks, hikes and short trips. Based in the Hague but exploring the world. The name originates from Australia where aboriginals use this term for a retreat. Literally meaning:
1. A temporary return to traditional life, taken especially between periods of work or residence in modern society and usually involving a period of travel through the bush
2. A walking trip
Many of us lead busy lives, spend hours sitting behind screens, are run by our agendas and deadlines. How about taking a walk? Resetting your system, breath in breath out, feel the wind, the rain, the sun, the earth beneath your feet, feel your body and use your senses.
You will return refreshed and ready to rumble!

Elsterberg hike

Rhenen, Station

So guys, A lot of you answered the question about your favourite hiking area with 'mountains'. Same here but what can you do when living below sealevel? Maybe visit a 'mountanous' area in the centre of Holland for the day called Elsterberg, mountain of Elst. The "Utrechtse heuvelrug" is a higher sandy area amidst the lowlands between Hilversum and Rhenen. There is forest, heather, sandy parts and also ancient barrows (grafheuvels) from the bronze age. What is the plan? We meet at station Rhenen NS at 10:30 am. to set off. This hike is 17,5 km. so we'll be at it for a good part of the day. Bring weatherproof clothes (there's a dutch saying "april doet wat ie wil" meaning april can show any kind of weather any time) something to eat and drink, good shoes, good mood. Your participation is approved and definite after transmitting €5 to: "Elsterberghike" via https://tikkie.me/pay/snttlev2ac16np9qkbpb This is for the organisation, to confirm your presence and for one hot drink along the way.
