Hiking in the Triglav National Park

Zasavska koča na Prehodavcih

The easternmost part of the Alps is in Slovenia and is called the Julian Alps. For a long time, we had wanted to hike there. It is more natural, untouched and wilder than in Germany, Austria, Switzerland or Italy. Let me take you with us on a wonderful 72 km hiking week in the Triglav National Park

Hiking to Hohenzollern Castle

Hohenzollern Castle

On Sunday, November 11, 2018, we made a wonderful hike in the Swabian Jura. This is a low mountain range in southern Germany. The special thing about this mountain range is that the northwest flank consists of an impressive steep slope. This topographical feature allows an overwhelming view of the landscape extending to the west (towards Stuttgart).  The Zeller Horn, at 912 m above sea level, offers the best views of Hohenzollern Castle on this steep slope. read more »

Project: Antarctica

Project: Antarctica

Today I watched the movie Project: Antarctica – The Journey of our Lifetime in the Odeon-Cinema in Mannheim. The movie is completely different from what I had expected, and probably just because of that I liked it so much: It’s about three Germans, Tim, Dennis and Michael, who take the spontaneous decision to travel to Antarctica and create a movie about it. Of course, for me as a travel, nature and photography enthusiast, this was very interesting at first. I imagined that the film would offer spectacular scenery and wildlife pictures. And when I saw the trailer, I was also worried that it might be one of those self-staging projects that I often find on Instagram and Facebook (I feel like we’re ready to do everything for a little more attention and fame). read more »
