Hello Visitor,This newsletter contains information about my new photo website, some new or renewed hikes and the schedule of the planned hikes till the end of April 2018
After a hike I normally post pictures of that hike on my facebook page. That is easy and convenient. But when you want to look back at previous hikes you have to scroll down quite a bit to find these. To make it easier to look at pictures of previous hikes I have created a new website with pictures taken during the scheduled hikes, pictures taken during hikes with other hiking organizations in Curaçao, pictures taken during my own hikes or hikes with friends and, last but not least, my pictures of the beautiful underwater world of Curaçao. All this can be found at https://johndohmen.smugmug.com/
During the past weeks I have explored a possible new route around the lagune of Jan Thiel, I checked if a discontinued hike (Seru Jamanika) is once again accessible and I looked into an extension of the existing hike at Jan Thiel West.The hike around the lagune of Jan Thiel is a long one; it needs some more exploring to find the best route; because of its length I will most probably not include this hike in my regular schedule but will announce it as an extra hike probably on Saturdays.The hike to the Seru Jamanika was discontinued because the route became inaccessible due to fallen trees. In the meantime a group volunteers of Hbike outdoor Curacao has cleaned the trail, so I decided to check it out. Because this hike overlaps the Malpais hike almost completely I will schedule the route to the Seru Jamanika alternately with the hike throught Malpais on the Sundays. And lastly I went exploring for an extension to the Jan Thiel West hike. In the past I had a short alternative for this hike along the coast but discontinued that hike because it was so short. Now I have combined the route along the coast with the normal Jan Thiel West hike and also extended the second part by going along the shore of the lagune. This hike will become the normal version of the Jan Thiel West hike.Look below for the links to the three new or renewed hikes:
In the coming weeks the following hikes will be held:
All hikes start from the parking place mentioned in the description of the hike.
Each hike costs US$ 10.00 per person to be paid at the start of the hike.
