Tip #6: The feet
The main point of tip number 6 is the feet. They should be ready for the hiking season just as much as the legs and the rest of the body. Bought new hiking boots? How nice! Then do something nice for your toes, heels and joints and break in the new shoes. It would be a shame if blisters and bruises overshadowed the first spring hike.
Tip #7: Daydreaming
Anticipation is known to be the greatest joy. And what anticipation could be more beautiful than looking forward to your next hiking holiday? If you are happy, the body releases happy hormones and these in turn lead to a better mood on cold, winter days. You can start enjoying your trip with Eurohike weeks in advance!
