This week we used the excellent weather conditions for a group hike.
After we had figured out where actually to go,
… and some involved grass scrambling
… we finally reached our “summit”, where we took a well-deserved break
… and marveled the gorgeous view.
“What goes up must come down” and so we eventually returned back and cooled down with a beer or two,
… replenished the burnt calories,
… after which we needed some help for digestion,
… before we closed the hike with a game of viking chess.
