Nico Schnee and his dive into Corsica

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.

Lofoten: Microcamper Summer

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.

Martin Spitzbart is Unstoppable

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.

Hochgrat: Trekking Winter

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.

Franziska Hösel and her 100 km run

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.

Nelson Lakes National Park: Trekking Summer

Thick clouds form in the sky as we park our car on the Mt Robert carpark (880m). What happened? There was bright sunshine just a minute ago…
But hey, there is no bad weather and we are not made from sugar. Put the sweater out and put on the rain jacket and then let’s go to the Angelus Hut (1650m).

Harz Witches’ Trail: Trekking Summer

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.

Mulde: Kayaking Summer

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).

Achterwasser: Kayaking Summer

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.

Leipzig: Kayaking Summer

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!
