The island of Ven: a wonderfully easy trip from Malmö and a beautiful place. In the summer, pick a weekday to visit since the crowds will be (slightly) diminished. From Malmö, a train to Landskrona and the bus (or a walk through the town) to the port. The ferry ride itself is short and sweet,Continue reading “Rambling on the Island of Ven (Sweden)”
A wonderful Spring run in the Kent Downs following the North Downs Way. I started at this marker just outside the village of Wye and made my way towards the sea. Beautiful views over the valley, green fields, and farmland.
A fantastic run, even in the dead of winter. A great starting point is Duckpool Bay in Cornwall, which can be accessed by a short bus ride from Bude. Once at the beach, look left, look right, majestic cliffs in both directions, and choose your path. Both ways are spectacular. It’s a good idea toContinue reading “Running the Coast of Cornwall (UK)”
A beautiful run on any day, particularly early in the morning just before boats start to crowd the river. You can start the run from Bridge Street, to the left side of the Prezzo Italian Restaurant. Follow the foot/bike path down the river, past Jesus Green & Midsummer Common. Take the second foot bridge onContinue reading “Running the River Cam (UK)”

The long winding hill I chose started at the intersection of Via Panoramica and Via S. Gaetanino. I headed up onContinue reading “Running in & outside Brescia (Italy)”
If you happen to be in San Diego for a few days, as I was, I would highly recommend this run. I took a taxi from La Jolla to the Torrey Pines State Reserve and ran the beach (with a small residential deviation towards the end) all the way back to La Jolla. Once inContinue reading “Running the beaches of San Diego (U.S.A.)”
*”Rambling” isn’t quite the right word here. Think, rather, an ascent equivalent to or worse than a marathon due to altitude. One of the most beautiful and exciting multi-day walks of my life, and by far the hardest. Pounding headaches, seemingly constant dehydration, and utter exhaustion. It was worth each step. Changing flora, breathtaking views,Continue reading “Rambling* in Los Nevados National Natural Park & to the Peak of Nevado Del Tolima (Colombia)”
