    Zwembad de Goffert

    Goffertbad

    Open air swimming pool. Even though we couldn't swim very well, we used to come here when we were kids, it was within walking distance of our home. The pool has been redesigned and renovated a couple of times with community funds since then! For the most part, they depend upon volunteers nowadays, but guess what - they're still there! Jennie and I like to visit after working hours (5 pm - 7 pm). Adults pay Euro 3.50 for a single visit (Summer 2006). Large basin with depth 2.00 - 3.30 meters, children's basin 0.40 - 1.30 meters depth, two small circular basins for toddlers ; children's games - ask for 'Pierre'! - and water slide. Picture from someone else's website.

    Nijmegen: Walkers' Capital of the World!!

    by AR76 Updated Jul 26, 2005
    Day 1 - walking on the dyke near Nijmegen

    Nijmegen is home to the world's largest multi-day walking event.
    The "Nijmeegse Vierdaagse" or International 4-days marches take place from Tuesday to Friday in the 3rd week of July.
    This year saw the 89th edition of the 4-days marches. Some 47,500 walkers from all over the world registered, 38,500 of whom actually completed the 4 days. I am proud to say I was one of them :-)

    There are 3 distances: 30k, 40k and 50k.
    The minimum distance you must walk to qualify for the official Vierdaagse medal is:
    30k: for children aged 12-15, women aged 60+, men aged 65+.
    40k: for women aged 16-59, men aged 16-18 and 50-64, military participants carrying at least a 10kg (back)pack.
    50k: for men aged 19-49

    Equipment: * good shoes are a must-have. You can train for this all year, but without good shoes your feet are sure to be suffering!

    * rain gear to keep you dry - either an umbrella or a rain cape. Rain jackets & trousers are a hassle to put on and make you sweat even more than you already do.

    * enough water to keep you from dehydrating
    * enough (light) food to keep you from passing out

    * good humour!! - to keep you going if your feet/legs don't wanna anymore...

    Ju-do

    Judo - catch me here once a week, practising judo with some other veterans (euphemism!) - I've since given up on judo, so this tip could now double under "Fondest memories" ...
