Vierdaagse of Nijmegen – Four days of long distance trials & tribulations

The epic trial & tribulation that is the Vierdaagse of Nijmegen. This long distance walk is internationally known as the Walk of the World. Four days of walking 40 kilometers per day. Why do people even want to do this? It’s hard to explain, or even understand, if you haven’t experienced it for yourself. As you crawl along the Via Gladiola on the final stretch of the last day, the euphoria that comes over you causes a natural high that may well turn into a recurring virus. You get itchy feet, and you’ll want to do it again. The Vierdaagse virus is real.

The rare natural phenomenon of ‘kruiend ijs’ in The Netherlands. Drifting sheets of ice caused unusual scenes as they piled up around the shores of the IJsselmeer inland sea. A fascinating sight that is usually confined to (sub-) Arctic environments much further north.
