Life is (much) better in hiking shoes!

“Sky above, Earth below and Peace within” is exactly what I feel when I hike. Beginning of this year, like all others I had made my yearly resolutions list. Top of that list was to hike more than last year and become fit and healthy.

I tried my best to keep that one promise that I made to myself and I have done much better than the last year and the year before. Today on the last day of the year, I am retrospecting all the hikes and walks I have done this year.
