All that big talk I did last week about exploring more of the Oregon coast was just that—big talk. Things are crazy busy at My Itchy Travel Feet (can’t wait to tell you more), so a few beautiful beach walks was the best that Alan and I could do.

From Nicole:

Have we inspired you to get moving this month? From hiking adventures in the USA to some incredible European hikes, you should be able to find something that gets your heart pumping.

Personally, I like my hiking a bit on the relaxing side. As long as I’m surrounded by greenery and preferably, a creek or river, I’m happy.

Over the last few years,  I’ve been going to a place called Cercedilla, in the Sierra de Guadarrama. It’s a vast area with clearly marked trails for any level of hiker. Even better, it has a little “chiringuito” that serves up a nice glass of Rioja when you’re finished with your hike! If you’re ever around Madrid and looking to stretch your legs, check it out!
