Running along the roads and footpaths in the tiny village of Kinderdijk (pictured), we were surrounded on all sides by twirling giants. What a way to see this quaint destination in the Netherlands. We were away from the crowds and made our own way looping around from the water to the interior canals, and before an hour had passed, Colleen and I had spotted animals (many cows, horses and mallards), ships, trees, flowers, chatted with residents and seen every windmill in town.
This is often how we like to explore ports areas and other destinations. You get to see more, find a little piece of solitude and best of all, it's free and good for your health.
We have enjoyed runs in St. Thomas USVI, London, New York City, Key West, Orlando, Dublin and many, many more.
Many cruise-port cities offer great walking/running paths that are natural fits for excellent sightseeing while you get in your workout.
Just throw on your running shoes and grab your camera, then head out for a cheap self-guided tour in these spots.
Please share spots you have discovered for your runs/walks around the world.
Thanks for reading. Travel fit and travel happy!
