We all know you can skate down a frozen river, but can you sail down one too? You can, if you have an iceboat outfitted with "skies" to glide across the ice! Racing iceboats was quite popular in the 19th century, with the Hudson River being one of the sport's hotspots. The first iceboat in America is actually attributed to a Hudson River racer: Oliver Booth in Poughkeepsie. This ca. 1873 Currier & Ives print is of the typical iceboat style with two fixed "skies" in the front and another at the back used for steering the boat. The sport still exists today, but it's dependent on rivers freezing over. Feels like that shouldn't be an issue this week in NYC, right? ❄️ 😳 [Credit: MCNY, 58.300.239] #hudsonriver#wintersports#newyorkhistory
De weekend wandeltip van deze week gaat door de polder van Zuid-Holland. Op deze wandeltocht van een ruime 12km door Hoogmade kom je langs een bonte verzameling aan molens en kan je genieten van de mooie polder in wintersferen.

Crazy hair...don't care! 🤪⠀
The moments or days when you don't have to look in a mirror, you don't have to present yourself in any specific way are always my favourite. It's freeing to not worry about appearance, just wear all the bright colours and let your hair do whatever it needs to do.⠀
