WALKING and CYCLING
Many of us believe that cycling and walking is the best way to explore new areas and to appreciate any country and its people. There is a real sense of achievement when you reach your destination and you also have an excuse to taste the local wine and produce without that guilty feeling. So, next time you have a few weeks to spare why not go for a walking or cycling holiday far away from the noise of the city and modern day life's stresses.
Enjoy a gentle stroll
through the vineyards of the Dordogne in France, appreciate the loneliness of Scotland's
West Highland Way, take delight in walking through the remote Mountains of the Moon in
Africa or follow the colour coded paths in the European Alps.
Walking and cycling in Europe can also be a family affair as was seen with Brent, Elaine, Daniel and Hayley in Europe. Here is 'dad Brent' (right of picture) keeping an eye on his 11 year old (at the time - the one in blue) riding through villages in northern Belgium. Talk to us about riding as a family.
|Daniel (13 yrs at the time) cycling through Belgium towards the Dutch border. He is the one with the helmet on. Most Europeans don't wear helmets, but as the children were in Europe for the first time, with increased traffic levels and riding on the 'other side' of the road compared to Australia, helmets remained on their heads.|
