Strand Kühlungsborn

In about one month I will go on my first multi day hike on the Polish Section of the E9, one of the European long distance trails along the coastline of several countries. We will be out for almost two weeks trying to make a good stretch of the 660km long part. 160km to 200km may be possible. Poland is probably the only country close to Germany where you “can” Stealth camp even though it’s illegal. We will see. I definitely need a break from daily life. Can’t wait 🙂 .

Great Lake Taupo, NZ

I really can’t wait to get out on a trail, start moving my ass, sweating like hell and be finally back home. Less than 12 months to go. (YESSSSS!;) Even though i have to plan for 2 trails, being in 4 countries on 2 continents. Researching gear, resupply stuff, visa and permits, maps and flights. My company offered to support my plans. Not only that they are sports enthusiasts, they also like the message I’m trying to spread. Figuring all that out takes a lot of my freetime which i happily spent on that. Ways to go. Seems to be pretty far away tho…

It’s no “work” when you love what you do. Listen to your heart!

Delaware Water Gap, Pennsylvania

Geeking out about fireworks for 4th of July celebration… @durc_yo gave us a quick Tour through a shop dedicated to only every imaginable kind of crackers, sparklers and all that stuff. Wired but funny. We spent a nice zero day at the church in Delaware water gap and got into new jersey next morning. .

Talking a side path can lead to everything. It may be a nice 2h talk right under a power line clearing with a nice old couple being out for a day hike. It may be leaving the trail at a parking lot to go get pizza for all of us a couple miles away Town as well. And of course it could be you ending up in a fireworks store right before the 4th. And everything in between 😉

Dresden, Germany

Hiking the appalachian trail had a huge impact on almost everything in my life. Not only that my personality changed significantly, my attitude, behavior and very own perspective of my life and it’s meaning went through a similar process. It took me quiet a while to figure that out and realize what has happened. I’m not the man I used to be anymore. Then I thought about one thing. What can I do to spread the word and show people how they can achieve the same if they want. For me, words are just words unless you’re acting accordingly. “If you’re going to talk the talk you’ve got to walk the walk” – Right? And that’s what I’m going to do. Literally.
My gameplan is roughly set. When, where, how long. I will leave germany in mid April 2018 flying over to the U.S. taking 10 days to get my missing gear together. Start on the pct going nobo. Flying out to Sidney, Australia and Auckland, New Zealand – from Vancouver, Canada. Hike the Te Araroa, then flying back to Sidney and then Germany mid or late May 2019. I’m so excited, greatful and nervous about what’s lying ahead of me. A good sign 😉
So if you’re still asking yourself about what is my point: I want to show you, that everyone is able and capable of going on an adventure. I want you to be inspired by my stories, pictures and words. To show you that it’s doable as long as you put all your energies and power in it. You can do what ever you want! That’s what I learned on the appalachian trail…

Fort William, Highland

I simply love those moments of piece and freedom. These are pretty rare and very valuable. Even just a couple of seconds last long enough to survive without them. Taking all in. Watch it, feel it, enjoy it. You can find them – where you’ve never been to get. So go ahead boldly. But you may consider,
Allways choose the road less taken!
It’s worth every detour 😉

Auckland, New Zealand

Everytime i Get to a new country with access to the ocean i get excited like a little boy the night before Christmas the closer I get. There is a magical moment right before you see the waves rolling in for the very first time. And then, walking slowly to the shore, I realize how small and unimportant i am and how fortunate to have the chance to be here and being able to live my life. I close my eyes, standing still, taking a deep breath. And just like the little boy I used to be, I start exploring and scouting out.

There lies beauty in every moment, ready to be found, just look closely or you’ll miss it 😉

New Zealand

My adventurous heart feels torn apart when it comes to make a decision about whether to go into the mountains or to the sea. I do love both of them so this is a real issue sometimes. Maybe It’s the fact that New Zealand has to offer either, and almost everything in between, what makes me love that country so much. Not to forget the great and cool and layed back people of aotearoa. The land of the long white cloud. I miss you so much! .

Bowentown Beach Holiday Park

The first step into the world can be hard. Not because of the physical but for the mental aspect. What if…? How do I…? Where can i….? And so much more fearful thoughts one may have in his head when thinking about an adventure. One month of road tripping aotearoa infected me with the most infective travel bug bite. Never felt that free before and got curious again. About all those things that are waiting for me to be explored… thank you, life, for letting me experience all that!

Appalachian Trail

When we got to that shelter we still had a couple of hours till sunset so we sat there for dinner, chatting with each other, having fun. we pitched our tents a little bit uphill like 50 feet away. later that night we were sitting under the tarp of blazer and hula watching a thunderstorm rolling over the city at the bottom of the mountains. just a small group of us, talking, just listening, smoking, drinking… enjoying the moment. for me one of the best memories…

Appalachian Trail

We all have our struggles, dramas and complaints every once in a while, but at the end we can see that it’s not as hard as it may seem. As long as you have a warm and dry place to stay, food and good company around, life is awesome. The more we have, the more we are afraid to loose it and to have to let go. Better to find out what you really need and want in life and to let things and people go in peace when needed… groupie taken by @8pawshike when we crossed the NJ/NY border back in 2015.
