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.
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.
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.
