Daleville, Virginia

One the things I liked the most on the appalachian trail is, to talk to random people along the trail. I’ve met so many great people along the trail, thru-hiking or not. I always spent a good chunk of time sitting down and talking to them. Some were former hikers, some locals on a short hike on the trail, some just tourists. .

Not quite sure if that’s right before Daleville or another Town. I do remember celebrating @pieonthetrail ‘s birthday there… .

Partnachalm

Seeing the alps from the distance, like around #munich, is very impressive. You can see them for the length of a couple 100km.
A little further down south I was on the way back to my car, coming from my #partnachklamm day hike. Had that view from #partnachalm – a meadow in the mountains below or around treeline. I was stunned.

Hanover, New Hampshire

Leaving Hanover,NH and having a break to enjoy this amazing summer day’s view. Sat there for about one hour, had some snacks and smokes and took a brief video clip for my folks at home. And than shit got real pretty fast – and it’s been an awesome time! Would trade in everything to be there right now. Anyways, new adventures are coming up and time is flying.

Appalachian Trail

No words can describe the feelings I have when looking back on the trail. I can’t describe how it feels like to live the traillife. I fell in love with the simple, the real – real-life. Being out in the wild. Far away from all the things that eat up all our energies and good spirits. Surrounded by Nature, Friends like family and your self. Plenty of space to expand your comfort zone to. Feeling the blood pumping through your veins, the sweat running down your body, smelling the sweet fragrancies of your surroundings – and a little bit of your very own funk, of course 😉 life is easy and simply awesome!

Lincoln Center

I never planned on going to visit New York City when hiking the appalachian trail. I thought it could possibly have a bad influence on me when I headed out to be in the woods for half a year and then go straight to one of the biggest cities of the world. I planned on being alone on trail. Luckily the total opposite was true at the end and I’m really greatful I joined my friends. Surely one of the longer lasting memories for me.

You can plan everything ahead and try to stick with that. But life doesn’t work like that. Learn to go with the flow unless you’re feeling uncomfortable. Follow your heart – but don’t forget: happiness is when shared!

Kreischa

The last week’s were pretty busy and also kinda exhausting. I’m working on my presentation and speech I’m going to do next Thursday. Topic is: Thru-hiking the appalachian trail – a brief introduction in long distance hiking. I was struggling with the huge amount of information, pictures and story’s. To decide what I will show and how much I can put in there. It’s not easy to fit 6 months full of moments that I’d like to share in a 1,5h speech. But it’s a great chance to recall and enjoy what I went through on the trail. I’m going to start my planning for my next adventures in early March. Preparing for thru-hiking two trails will be a total new experience I guess. Writing on my new blog is also a very time consuming thing. But I love to do it and to share my memories. Life’s good 😉
