Where to go for a walk


The wander routs are marked with a square of 10 by 10cm cut in half by a diagonal line which divides it into two triangles of which the lower one may have a different color(blue, red, green ect.) and the upper one is always white. Each path begins at the Ustron Market, but id doesn’t mean that you have to start your journey there.
