A quick update

Remember those virtual challenges I do? The first one being Mount Everest. Now the second medal has come in: the Pyramids of Giza. And another beauty it is. 

The front can open up to reveal a tiny scarab that comes out and the back is beautifully decorated as well. I don't often indorse something, but this is definitely worth the money I paid for it. 

If you are into walking, running or cycling, it might be something for you as well. There are both shorter and longer challenges, but for every 20% of any challenge completed, a tree will be planted. And at the end you will get a beautiful medal. Click here for more information.

I am currently walking the Ring of Kerry in Ireland and I can't wait to finish it and get my medal for it. I am just over half way now, so I still have about 100 km to go, but I have started walking a bit longer just to get that medal. Win win for me!

In other news: I spotted the first green. The clover has started to come up. I can't wait for the rest...


  1. I see you are also travelling in the past ! I wonder if there will ever be a future ! I loved Ireland and the Kerry ring. I am happy that I did all these trips I don't know if I will be still fresh enough to do that again ! They stole already one year of my life !

  2. Congrats, and I like the wind-blown tree.

    It is wonderful that this incentive has given you the drive for improving the walking... they are indeed impressive medals!

    Watching stuff grow is one of life's great pleasures. YAM xx

    1. This morning more had come up and this evening even more! I am so looking forward to what I am going to get...

  4. What a cool medal you received for that challenge. Those challenges are a great way to keep you motivated to walk.

  5. The medals are very nice and that is wonderful that trees will be planted. I think I am a bit confused about the virtual walking. Is it something you do outside where you live and keep track of or do you walk in place in the house? How do they know you did it?
