The great American outdoors

I enjoyed the great American outdoors the last few weeks. Since I love the summertime, and there are plenty of hills around Philly, it was time to check out the nature side of the East Coast!

I made a few bike tours in <Fairmount Park, a gigantic park just outside of Philadelphia´s center city. Here, you will see the Boathouse Row (with nice lights - like christmas, but they have it on every night), jogging- and biking paths, many monuments, and Wissahickon Creek (or Forbidden Drive): a great mountainbike path next to the river.

Moreover, I did a kayak tour on the Brandywine River, at the Pennsylvania - Delaware border, in a bright orange kayak. Pictures are below!
