Wandernadel Level 2

After taking about one and a half years to Reach Bronze Level with the Harzer Wandernadel, it merely took me two weeks to get to the next Level: Silver.

Yesterday I got my last four required Stamps after getting the other four, namely the Liebesbankweg, the Bärenbrucher Teich, the Hutthaler Widerwaage and the Wurmberg.

On my way to the Hutthaler Widerwaage.

Since the Tourist Information here in Osterode had closed yesterday, I decided to pick up my Silver Wandernadel today. But since they were sold out when I wanted to get my Bronze Wandernadel, I checked in with them before going to the ATM.

Luckily, they had a bunch of Silver Wandernadeln. And so I bought my one there today. And it looks awesome!

To get the eight additional Stamps required to get from Bronze to Silver, I hiked 19.2 kilometres with a total height difference of about 430 metres.

All that took me about 9 hours. Which means that I have to admit that I am not the fastest Hiker. But I guess part of that comes from me stopping to take Pictures.

In Hahnenklee.

I am glad that I am able to enjoy Nature and also have a Reward System like the Harzer Wandernadel to encourage me to go out more.

I know it might sound a little superficial, but it is nice to have something to show for your efforts.
