It was a sunny, early morning in May 2020 when we hiked up the Fürstein Mountain (2040m) which you can reach in approx. 30 min by car from Lucerne.Continue reading Hiking up the Fürstein – Switzerland
Some days ago, we (few friends and I) did a short 2-3 hours trip close to Wald (Canton Zurich) – roughly 8 km with 400 meters up and down. I have been in this area already some weeks ago doing the Hiking around Steg – Switzerland it has a lot to offer so I’m pretty sure I will return again.
We caught a perfect sunny day when we went out for a hike in the Jurapark recently. Just 40 minutes from Zurich, the Jurapark has plenty to offer in case you intend to start hiking early in the year and you want to prevent getting on still snowy & wet trails in the Alps.
Some weeks ago in February 2020 we did a dayhike close to Steg in the valley of the Töss River. This is roughly 30 min away from Zurich and again it was an amazing trip with great views and perfect spots to have have some delicious food while watching the (still) snowy Alps. This is a trip that can be easily made during early spring in case the snow situation allows it.
Back in winter 2004/2005, I hiked the White Desert (Egypt) together with an old friend – I remember it today as one of these great adventures I did when I was younger, more risk-taking and didn’t care much about details and potential outcomes. Living in the moment was key.
La Reunion is an adventure island and not the best place for hanging around at the beach. We crossed this amazing place, which is part of the European Union and belongs to France, in 2012 by foot.
2 more days we spent in the Paklenica National Park (Croatia) – a wonderful and quiet place in October 2019. There are so many nice routes and possibilities to spend days if not weeks in this park.
