2001 - 2007

Lake District, July 2002

The Lake District (Wales) is known as one of the wettest regions in Europe. Reason: the jet stream comes down there and brings a lot of humidity. And that’s what we noticed… At least in the morning. Every morning it rained, so the hikes were shortened. By the time we arrived at the next lodging […]

Nepal, winter 2004/2005

The big dream of every hiker: Nepal. The hike itself was quite light, the highest point was 3000 meter. Our hike was a trekking in the valley of Kathmandu. It was – for several reasons – an unforgettable experience. And, Nepal is an ideal photo model… While assembling the gallery, I did get nostalgic. The […]

40 years…

October 2005 I became 40 years old… So it was time for a bit of tradition: every ten years I publish a book. At 30 I published one with poems and short stories (30 copies, for family and friends). At 40 I have been looking for inspiration for some time… eventually the idea came from […]

Upstate New York, November 2005

Each year in November I go to Rochester (NY), for a symposium. Due to the cheaper flights, I usually also spend the WE there, so I have time to discover the region. This time the weather was really nice, especially for the time of the year. I went to some (smaller) national parks in the […]

Snow shoes, winter 2005/2006

The traditional week on snow shoes was in the Queyras (France). It was cold, extremely cold: in the morning when we started it sometimes was -16 °C… During the day it got warmer of course, but still there sometimes was a bitter cold wind, with a lot of wind chill of course. Eddy

Vercors, summer 2006

My only real week of vacation in 2006: a hiking week in the Vercors (France). Very nice weather… a little hot even. Nice environment, very nice group. And it was the world championship football (or soccer for the American visitors), we’ve seen the defeat of France on a small town square, with a big screen… […]

Grand Canyon, October 2006

A few times a year I travel for my job. In October 2006 I ended up in Las Vegas, for a conference/exhibition. Because it is a rather long trip from Belgium, I took a few days vacation to go to the Grandy Canyon, which is only a half day drive from Las Vegas. The evening […]

Snow shoes, Februari 2007

Yes, once again a week on snow shoes. This time it was a hike from Nevache to the Queyras (France). Due to all kinds of circumstances, we were only 3 plus the local guide. One of the days was really impressive: we spend the night in a distant hut, from there we went on through […]

Ötztal, summer 2007

During the summer of 2007 I spend a week in the Ötztal (Austria), you know, where the iceman Ötzie was found. A very pretty valley. And we got another surprise: during a hike on the glacier – it was mid August – we were surprised by a very heavy snow storm. Visibility about 10 meters, […]
