Clothing Gear Review

In my next gear review, I will be talking about the first layers and hiking boots after reviewing the jackets in my last post. Especially for longer hikes, it is very helpful to have some good quality Merino gear for your first layers. They might be a bit more expensive, but are completely worth it and last much longer, so in the end you will probably invest the same amount of money over time. Read the rest of this entry »

100th country done!

I spent more time in Australia and New Zealand (nearly half a year combined), but now it is finally time to announce that I have just received the stamp of my 100th country!

Until then, I hope you like this short one minute drone footage I put together from a rather unknown hike in New Zealand. Check out the post for more info and the video!

Outdoor Jackets Gear Review


Moving on with my travel gear reviews, I will talk about the jackets I am using during my trip. Since I love the mountains and colder areas, I invested a bit more money into proper and very lightweight materials. Those not only keep me completely dry and out of the wind, but also last for a long time and only make up for a tiny portion of my Backpack’s weight. Check out which products I am relying on in this post! Read the rest of this entry »
