We are back for our favorite past time: Diving with the Atlantic’s apex predators in the polar ocean between Skjervoy and Hammerfest. And it is possibly the best trip, yet.
Out boat is rocking in the waves of the Atlantic Ocean. All eyes are fixed on the surface. We have been adrift on the open Ocean for hours. Finally, the relieving call: “Shark!”. A dark fin circles the boat as we jump. Onto a fantastic blue shark adventure.
Gale-force winds are hitting us head-on, as we scale the peaks of Trotternish Ridge. Our tent held up well at 7bft (The aisle of Skye gave us the chance to test in up to 9bft on Trotternish Ridge but we gave it a pass). Can you imagine a better vacation?Continue reading “Isle of Skye – Gale force winds and vertical rain”
It must be over 20 years since my first (and last) visit to Madeira. In that time, the Madeirans have replaced the old, adventurous E101 ring round with a modern highway system and have become the go-to place for the New Year fireworks. I am excited to be back.
Air Lingus takes us to the green island for a stop-over in Dublin on our way to Madeira. we take the opportunity to spend two days in the fair city.
After many years we are back at Fabian’s childhood holiday destination, Fanø. Two weeks of sleeping and long walks on the beach to get a much needed rest.Continue reading “Amber coast of Denmark”
When equipment improves, skills eventually require improvements, as well. Therefore, we decided to spend a weekend in Berchtesgaden to improve our landscape photography skills. And we stopped by the “once-in-ten-years” Passion Play in Oberammergau.Continue reading “Photography +1”
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.
