Rik's Holidays

Since 1997 I've been doing walking holidays, mainly in Europe, with organisations like Ramblers, HF Holidays and Exodus.
These holidays have given me the opportunity to walk in memorable landscapes (hills, mountains, coasts and islands) in groups with like-minded people.
I have also had the chance to practice my foreign language skills and of course to enjoy nice food and drink.
On some of my holidays I was accompanied by relatives and friends, on some I found myself on my own (e.g. Sicily and Iceland).
There are still a lot of places to see, including, of course, many attractive parts of the British Isles!
