Montenegro Video Series

Montenegro

📅 October 2nd, 2021 ⛰️ ▶️ While my last visit in Montenegro only covered the touristic spots along the coast, I ventured out into the less visited mountain areas this time. Starting off at Plav in the North East of the country, I made my first steps on the 192km long Peaks of the Balkans Trek. Even though not part of the circular trek, there was no chance I would miss the Prokletije National Park & Grebaje Valley as my first side trip on the second day. Check out the video for some amazing mountain scenery during autumn with beautiful colours!

Alaska Video Series

Alaska

📅 August 7th, 2021 ▶️ Welcome to my new series, the Alaska Diaries! Due to the fact that I could not finish off the Pacific Crest Trail and its wonderful Washington sections, I decided to head up even further north to Americas Last Frontier: Alaska. Spending around 10 days there in total, I was first off Exploring Denali National Park and found myself looking for Beavers at the Horseshoe Lake Trail. I then hiked up the Little Coal Creek Trail and got introduced to the moody Alaskan weather while looking for a camp site and hoping to catch any sight on Mount Denali. Check the video to find out if I succeeded in that mission 🙃

Exploring the icebergs of ILULISSAT 🧊 in Greenland

greenland

📅 May, 2014 ▶️ The Disko Bay including the breath-taking Ilulissat Icefjord alone would be a very good reason to visit Greenland. I was joined by Tim and we were just about to start hiking the Arctic Circle Trail, so checking out the icebergs was a no brainer for us. It is hard to comprehend the amount of ice floating around in Ilulissat. We also saw Eqi Glacier up close from a boat tour, witnessing huge icebergs calve into the ocean. One of my favourite trips for sure which ended up on my 30th Birthday surrounded by Orange Sunset Icebergs.

Heading North – A Pacific Crest Trail Story – Episode 15

Pacific Crest Trail

📅 July 24th, 2021 ▶️ The next day in the Northern Cascades of Washington on my PCT 2021 hike starts with a beautiful sunrise again. I climb up the steeply rising Cathedral Rock, fight my way through a lot of fallen trees and come to the biggest River Crossing on my Pacific Crest Trail journey so far. After enjoying the sunset, I am once again plagued by mosquitoes 😂 My last day on the PCT at Day 35 delivers with some of the nicest lake views so far at Glacier & Trap Lakes before reaching the first skilifts of Stevens Pass. I hitch a ride into Seattle and come to the realisation that this has been the end of my Pacific Crest Trail 2021 journey because wild fires prevent me from heading towards Rainy Pass, a remote 7 day stretch which would be too dangerous to get stuck in a fire. Once I made it to Seattle, I could not wait to take care of one thing that had been bothering me for a long time 😆

Heading North – A Pacific Crest Trail Story – Episode 14

PCT

📅 July 21st, 2021 ▶️ Escaping from the Dixie fire in the last episode, I decide to take the Coast Starlight Train from Klamath Falls directly to Seattle. The usually 11 hour long ride is delayed by a few hours, but in return we get free food 😆I hitch hike to Snoqualmie Pass to get back on the Pacific Crest Trail again, my first miles of Washington Section J await me in beautiful summer weather! Entering the Alpine Lakes Wilderness, I get a first feel for the famous Washington Northern Cascades. Beautiful green forest and mountain landscapes quickly turn into some of the best landscapes I have seen on the PCT so far. Everything is much steeper here compared to the Sierra and it looks more dramatic. Looking back to Joe Lake, I am in awe of the breath taking views back to Mount Rainier. My 33rd day on the PCT ends with a bit of snow and 934km (577.5miles) walked in total so far. Getting very close to my 1000km goal!

Heading North – A Pacific Crest Trail Story – Episode 13

PCT

📅 July 16th, 2021 ▶️ The last part of PCT California Section J on the Pacific Crest Trail towards Echo Lake in South Lake Tahoe leads me through Carson Pass. After some trail magic in the Carson Pass Information Center, I get to see my second bear! Much bigger and much further away this time. The trail leads me through beautiful lakes and forest landscapes before arriving at South Lake Tahoe to end Section J. I decide to skip ahead due to my limited time and the ever increasing wild fire activities. On my way to Reno, the fires get really bad and I am stuck in the tiny village of Susanville with a yellow sky and ash falling down from the sky from the Dixie Fire. I eventually make it to Klamath Falls and have to change my plans once again..

Heading North – A Pacific Crest Trail Story – Episode 12

PCT

📅 July 13th, 2021 ▶️ My Pacific Crest Trail series Heading North continues from Sonora Pass on California Section J for another 120km. Heading into the Mokelumne Wilderness displays a complete new set of landscapes including a lot of volcanic rocks. I found this to be very refreshing after the Sierra Nevada mountains and was positively surprised! Making my way through the super windy “Nipple” mountain, I eventually make camp with just one day left to South Lake Tahoe, wondering how bad the fire situation will be in the upcoming days…
