We are back at the Wetterstein region after a 1,5 year Covid break. It is easy getting used to sitting at home. Therefore, we decided to spend a weekend in Garmisch for some light hiking.
We drift between the continents. Weightless in 2°C water of the Silfra Fissure. Touching the American continent with the left and the Eurasian continent with the right hand. Iceland is quite an amazing place. But its not the land of fire and ice, its the land of water in any state of aggregation. Here is our story.
After a tough year of work with few breaks, we finally manage to take our summer vacation – in October. We are set to go diving with some really big fishes. And what better place to go than to Norway’s arctic region.
No more than 50m of gravel separate the trail from the entry to the Heckmair Route into the Eiger North Wall. It is noon. Ueli Steck climbed the wall in 2:22h. Even if we take our time we could be at the top for dinner…
The second Covid lockdown is approaching and we are taking a final trip to the mountains. An what could be a better destination than the Baviarian dreamland: Allgäu.
Rumor has it that there cable car going up to Zugspitze. If this would be true, this machine would be almost entirely useless. Saturday was the third time this year I hiked up Zugspitze. And it was a special one. Michi joined me all the way to Sonnalpin.
We have hiked one of 19 heart racing trails according to National Geographic, we have gone diving in the arctic north atlantic ocean, we have caught a 15kg cod, we have seen reindeer, a whale, and sea eagles. We have spent an amazing holiday in some of the most beautiful places on earth in Norway. Continue reading “Norway – Land of dreams”
Speed feels good. I easily pass a guided group, jump up a small incline, turn a corner and… have reached the end of the queue to Alpspitze.
Who would have thought that we would travel farther than Garmisch to reach the mountains. But we did. Two full train stops beyond Garmisch lies Mittenwald.
Its Saturday morning and time for another adventure. I have just reunited with Michi on Zugspitze and we are wondering, what to do next. The answer is easy: Straight back to hell!
