Actually Sweden was the first planned destination with our converted Land Rover Dirscovery 3, but unfortunately or luckily we met a breeder for French Water Dogs (Barbet) from Switzerland shortly before our departure. Since we have been thinking about adding such a small curly friend to our herd for almost two years, it was clear that we would have to pay Switzerland a visit. Now the way from Central Germany via Switzerland to Sweden is a not to be neglected detour of about 1200 km. So we changed our plans at short notice and drove south via Switzerland to Corsica.
Untouched nature, remote fishing villages, deep fjords, lonely beaches surrounded by majestic mountains. And all this far north of the Arctic Circle.
After our winter tour from Tromsø to Narvik, I swore to come up here again in the summer time in order to have a closer look to the many small islands of the Lofoten and the surrounding area.
This time without northern lights but with the advantages of the midnight sun.
Age 25. The age when you think you have the strength to do anything, can uproot trees, shakeup storms and feel kind of invincible. But one Moment later I had to start from the beginning with my left arm being completely paralyzed. Also neuropathic pain became my new, uninvited companion.
If you are looking for a short, enjoyable winter hike in Germany, you have come to the right place. In a 4-day tour in the Allgäu Alps, the path from the Hochgrat cable car to the Gündlesscharte and back is very easy to master and is also ideal for beginners.
So it finally happened … I’ve been bothering my surroundings for the last 3 years. “I really want to run this one of the world’s hardest ultramarathon of 100 km in Biel.
In the center of Germany lies one of the most beautiful hiking trails of the country: The Harz Witches’ Trail.
With a total distance of 150km, the long-distance trail leads from Osterode to Thale. It combines magical places with largely untouched nature and insights of the history of the Harz mining industry.
The Mulde is not nearly as well known as the Elbe, Danube, Isar, and co. – How comes? We were on the road on one of the underestimated rivers of Germany: The Mulde. In total, there are five different Mulde rivers (Red Mulde, White Mulde, Zwickauer Mulde, Freiberger Mulde, United Mulde).
Great fame, a certain traditional value, high quality and an enormous recognition value – the Delagokante fulfills all the characteristics of a true classic.
Usedom. With an average of 1906 hours of sunshine per year, the island in the Baltic Sea is quite rightly considered “Germany’s sunshine island”!
After the long winter months, Usedom is, therefore, our first choice to recharge the sun and boost vitamin D production.
City tours are not really ours – at least when it comes to my friend Christian. He is more of the adventurous type. He can not stroll … and being dragged past shopping windows on his long arm … hm … that’s not for me.
But on this sunny Saturday we want to combine action and city feeling in a micro-adventure. How? With a paddle tour in the middle of Leipzig!
Climbing on the Greifensteine has a long tradition – already 100 years ago, climbers got to work on the rocks. At that time it was still mainly about the preparation for larger tours in the Alps, today are officially six of the seven Greifensteine as an independent climbing area.
Every year, the orcas head south off the coast of Norway. They follow the herring swarms along the Gulf Stream up to their spawning areas at the height of Ålesund.
The proximity to the mainland offers the unique opportunity to see the whales in their natural habitat.
… and that ‘s what we want to do – but not with a whale – watching boat, but with our own kayak …
