Winter is coming. No, I’m not referring to a new season of Game of Thrones… I’m talking about how you feel that the year is drawing to a close. Days are getting shorter and the air is getting chilly. In short: Sofie’s favorite time of year to go for a walk.
Sofie read something on a night walk called “Bevel in ’t Licht”, which roughly translates to “Bevel Lights”. Last year I participated in a similar walk where Japanese folk stories were told at candlelight. I enjoyed that one… To tell you the truth, they already had me at “freshly baked pancakes” last year.
Although no pancakes this time, I was still up for a 5km walk, so we took our stray dog Fentom and went to the neighboring village Bevel.
Compared to the walk I did last year, there was one major difference: this time I had borrowed a fancy camera from a colleague at work. Full frame cameras are more light-sensitive so I was able to get better snapshots of the whole experience. Thanks, Sevil!
We enjoyed the walk immensely! Props to the people who organised it. Every house on the route was illuminated in its own, original way. I was happy with the photos I got! After some editing and picking a fitting tune by Gandalf (the musician, not the wizard!) I made little slideshow just for you. Let this little video be a reminder of:
Wherever you live… No matter how much or little you earn for a living…
You don’t have to travel the globe to find something wonderful and enchanting.
Just step outside, explore your local town or city, breathe in the fresh air of fall… and look for something new to do.
You’ll be surprised at all the local activities that lie waiting for you, just around your corner!
Here’s the website of the organization behind Bevel Lights: KVLV Bevel. KVLV exists 90 years, and they wanted to commemorate that with a night walk. You are free to contact them in case you want to organise something similar in your hometown or neighborhood.
