Expedition

Today's hash was on heathland, near Nunspeet on the northern edge of the Veluwe area. The Veluwe is well-known for its beautiful landscape, so I decided to drive all the way to Nunspeet and then walk to the hash. The nearest car park was more than 2 km away, so I had to walk for about twenty minutes to reach the point. Luckily, the weather was fine; it had been raining earlier, but right now it was just cloudy. My walk started in a forest, but the trees quickly gave way to reveal a desert-like landscape of sand dunes. After feeling like Felix of Arabia for a few minutes, the surroundings changed again to a vast heathland. It was quite refreshing to be in a wide open area nearly devoid of human activity, in such a crowded little country like the Netherlands. I found the hashpoint about 30 metres off a footpath, so I treaded carefully so as not to damage any vegetation. I took pictures and then walked around some more. After returning to the hashmobile I made my way to the town of Nunspeet to have lunch and visit the local museum.
