Queenstown, New Zealand

Queenstown is a incredible busy place, even in fall when season is almost over. We stopped by to grab a good cup of coffee and sat down for a while. I really loved to just being there, watching the town coming back to life slowly. It was nice and quiet. Kiwis do absolutely know how to live a relaxed and easy life 😉 rare and most valuable moments. Appreciate them.

Höllentalklamm

Just a couple of weeks after I had decided to do the Appalachian Trail, I went down in the south and did some preparation hikes in the German alps. The so called “#hoellentalklamm” in Garmisch-Partenkirchen was absolutely amazing. I’m usually not that easily scared (because of huge drops or sketchy footbridges,…) but down there it got me a couple of times. A great hike, nevertheless. There is also the #zugspitze somewhere in the background;)

Kreischa

I’m following some hikers along the pct on YouTube. I have to admit that watching their vlogs makes me feel a little bit nervous and anxious as well. Back on the AT I tried to be completely on my own which worked pretty good for me. But I always knew that my friends aren’t too far away. That was kind of an security net. Imagine now being on the PCT seems to be a whole different story. Not in a negative way. But a totall new level which is already expanding my comfort zone. Maybe it’s just my mind going wild right now. So stoked.

And yeah, btw. I do LOVE sunsets so here is one out of my window 😉

Abol Bridge Campground & Store

There was a moment on trail when we saw Mount katahdin for the very first time so clear ahead of us. We had a break up there and sat around for maybe an hour. And my thoughts were wandering. The last couple of miles left to the end of an journey. So big, long, challenging, exhausting, tiring, full of thunderstorms, oppressive heat, foggy days and freezing nights. And many laughs, filled with happiness and hiker sweat, friendships have developed and strangers became family. This is an experience you’ll only find where you have nothing but the stuff in your pack on you. You will learn to adjust and how to let go, you will go with the flow, where ever you’re bound. You will grow on every step, see your patience and Faith expanding. You are a believer. In yourself, mother nature and – which ever Name your God may have. But the most important lesson will be: have faith in your heart and in your love. .

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!

Auckland, New Zealand

sometimes you simply have to sit down and take a break. time to reset your focus back on your own life while breathing in and out quite deeply. no worries, no fear, no bullshit. can’t you see that you already have what you’re looking for?

Caratunk, Maine

There is one river crossing on the at you shouldn’t do on your own because it’s way to dangerous. That’s why the #atc put a ferry in place to bring hikers on the other side. I was looking forward to meet #hillbillydave because I knew him from that one famous German documentary. He is such a nice guy and I’m glad @appalchiantrailclarity took this picture of us when we crossed that stream with him. We stayed two nights at the #northernoutdoors #resort which was really cool. Good food, good beer, good company and a pool;)
