Whose going hiking this northern hemisphere summer?! Be sure to sign in and out at the trail head. Include the number of people in your party, where you are going and how many nights you expect to be out. Its a good idea to tell a friend more details about your exact route, important gear you have and when to raise the alarm if you haven't returned. The outdoors are meant to be enjoyed so get outside and stay safe while enjoying natures classroom! #nature #hiking #safetyfirst
Thinking of the FIFA football museum in Zurich last week. Lots of cool things to learn about the history from the women's world cup, crazed fans and stolen trophies. I love the lessons that sports teach you, especially that of team work and bringing people together. Go Belgium! Good luck tonight. @nlipkens did you see the old rules about goalies needing to stay in their half of the field? Check out more in a blog post on the website https://www.windowlessclassroom.com/single-post/2018/07/10/FIFA-Museum #hiddenhector ...he's in all the photos, can you find him? #FIFA
Views from the train last week. Tunnels, fields, farms, rivers, mountains and then...Zurich! There are 3,232 km of tracks and 91.4% are run off renewable resources in 2017. Mostly, hydroelectric. Find out more here: https://reporting.sbb.ch/en/infrastructures? #trains #renewableenergy
Bjørn the polar bear and Hector the penguin met! Reposted from @nanoqthepolarbear. Follow along for some great science communication that's fun!
I hiked up to 2,662 meters. How high is that in feet?
Polar educators international! Education, about polar regions? I love this group! Let's educate! Post a comment with a fact about Antarctica or the Arctic and you could get a PEI sticker while supplies last!
Cows, sheep and beautiful vistas. Switzerland is a beautiful country. It has 1.5 million cows and 8 million people. Milk is by far the favorite drink of choice and rarely do you find anything but whole milk. Can you find me in all the pictures? #hiddenhector
Did you know the 4th official language of Switzerland is Romansh? You can also hear many other languages spoken like French, Italian, and of course German.
The duomo cathedral is another impressive Gothic structure. It is the largest in Italy and 3rd largest church in the world. Started 2 centuries later than Notre Dame but also took centuries to complete. It also has gargoyles!
Ahhh the rivers of Basel. This Rhine is the longest river in Europe starting in the swiss alps fed from a glacier and is responsible for the drinking water and transportation for the 6 counties it passes through.
The TGV window has a great view traveling across the fields of the French country side at a brisk 320 km/hr. How fast is that in mph? What a fun, fast and environmentally way to travel!
Gargoyles! They were placed around Notre Dame as spouts for water run off to prevent damage to the stone work. They were originally painted too! I wonder if any look like penguins?
