2014-05-25 - Hiking @ Bieslandse Bos

Op zondag 25 mei zijn we voor het eerst naar het Bieslandse Bos, onder de rook van Delft, gegaan. We waren er nog nooit geweest en kwamen er achter via de Naar Buiten" Android app van Staatsbosbeheer. Het gebied is een bebost gebied met wat slootjes en vennetjes. Het is een leuke en afwisselende plek en is weer eens wat anders dan de plekken waar we meestal naartoe gaan om te wandelen. Het is nu nog een jong bos, maar de bedoeling is dat het samen met de Balij een groter en nog gevarieerder bos gaat worden. Dat belooft dus wat voor de toekomst!

Onderweg kwamen we verschillende watervogels en weidevogels tegen. De vogels die we hebben gespot waren onder andere de Canadese Gans, Nijlgans, Visdief, Kievit en Grutto. We waren met name blij met de Kievit en Grutto, omdat we dit seizoen nog niet zoveel weidevogels hebben getroffen.

Hieronder volgen wat foto's en een GPS track log van deze wandeling van ongeveer 7,5 kilometer:

Certified Scrum Master (CSM)

The last two days I attended a Certified Scrum Master training provided by Zilverline. Although I had a Scrum course before this one was more in dept. During the course the Scrum process was discussed. Furthermore lots of best practices, hands on exercises and practical tips came along. The entire two day training was very interactive and the trainers gave lots of room for questions and discussions. The day after the training I sat down and took the Certified Scrum Master (CSM) exam from the Scrum Alliance. I passed the exam with a score of over 94% so I am proud to say I am now officially a certified Scrum Master! The training gave me new energy to try and do my current project 'the Scrum way' again.

2014-05-05 - Short hike @ Schollebos

On the fifth of May we did a short hike in a park nearby called "Schollebos". We kept our hike short (a little over 4,5 kilometers), mainly focusing on the final three geocaches we still needed to do in the park in order to have only smileys left on the geocache map of this area. We found all three caches relatively easy, so now we can proudly say we did all available caches in the Schollebos. The next goal is to clear out the surrounding area.

Bellow is a GPS track log of our hike, the locations of the caches are left out for obvious reasons :-)

2014-03-29 - Hiking @ AWD

On Saturday the 29th of March it was a beautiful day and we decided to head for the Amsterdamse Waterleiding Duinen for a hike. It has been six months since we last were there. It was autumn back then, but now it is Spring which means the meadows and trees should start to get their blossom. We were looking forward to a day of hiking, enjoying nature, spotting deer and maybe even seeing a red fox.

When we arrived at De Zilk, we were immediately treated with a group of deer quite close to the entrance of the area. After enjoying the deer we started our hike through a part of the Amsterdamse Waterleiding Duinen which we didn't visit before. Along the way we crossed several meadows where sheep were grazing. After a while we followed a river until we reached the point where we spotted red foxes in the past. These foxes were present again today, so after having a picnic lunch we enjoyed watching the foxes for a while before starting our hike back. We chose to head back to the car via a different trail along which we spotted some more deer a couple of times.

We had a great day in the outdoors, hiking a little over 14 kilometers. Bellow are some pictures and a GPS track log of this hike:

2014-04-05 - Hiking @ Lochem

User Rating: / 2

During the first weekend of April we went to Lochem with my family. Lochem is a small town in the eastern part of The Netherlands, it is located near lots of forests so it's an excellent place to stay if you want to go hiking or geocaching. During the weekend we did various activities amongst which a nice geocache of a little under 5 kilometers. While hiking through the woods near Lochem we got pleasantly surprised by a small group of deer which suddenly crossed the trail right in front of us. Some of the people in our group never saw deer in the wild before so it was a nice experience.

There were lots of birds close to the home in which we stayed. Among many others we spotted the Common Chaffinch, the Brambling and the Earasian Jay. We had a great time in Lochem and I wouldn't be surprised if we all come back here again somewhere in the next couple of years.

Bellow are some pictures of our days in Lochem together with a GPS track log of this hike:
