I am not a big fan of ice skating, but with the ‘elfstedenkoorts‘ it was getting more tempting to go on the ice, since a very long time! So last friday I really wanted to go ice skating. The only problem was that I don’t have skates.. Still no big problem, I went to the shop and I bought a pair of ice hockey skates!
A good friend of mine also wanted to go ice skating so we decided to go to a small lake, which is not so far from where we live, with some other friends. The weather was beautiful and the ice was in good condition, 18cm!! They had cleared the ice from snow to create a nice trail, which was 2,5 km long!! I skated 2 laps, so 5 km in total and it was great!!
I’m so glad I bought ice skates because now I can enjoy the beauty of dutch winter in a different way than just looking at the snow and the frozen water!
Thanks for reading!
