Plzeň Region

Spent the weekend in freaking amazing Czech Republic, close to plzen. No people around, no advertisements and no news from radio or television. Just 2 days in pure solitude, lots of Campfires, good talks and great food. Surrounded by a really breathtaking piece if nature… What else do you need to recharge the batteries? Feeling very thankful – and jealous 😉

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.

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.

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;)

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.

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 😉

Great Smoky Mountains National Park

What if you would die tomorrow? Could you go without regrets? Or is there something you always wanted to do but you still haven’t yet? .
.
.
I’m asking that question to myself every once in a while. To remember that we aren’t immortal. To remember to listen to my heart. To bring meaning back to my life and it’s purpose. It’s like a compass for my life’s path. Stay focused, stay in the present, be real, be you.

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!
