Danube valley – Hausen im Tal

Time for another microadventure! In the meantime I maintain a note on my smartphone where I take short notes of places suitable for microadventures. A microadventure means a one night camper stay somewhere not too far away from home, that starts Friday after working hours. The most important thing for microadventures is planning parking alternatives…

Hiking in Balderschwang

When you find something that soothes your thoughts and increases your energy level, do it as often as you can. As the trip to Völs am Schlern was giving me so much energy for the work week, I announced a series of upcoming micro adventures to my husband. Means short trips from Friday night to…

Hiking in Völs am Schlern

I only started to realize how I missed travelling once the landscape started to change and we were driving on the Brenner highway. Destination for our 5 days trip with the camper van was South Tyrol again, Völs am Schlern. First trip after a long long time, not only because the van has been in…

Parco Nationale Gran Paradiso – Valnontey

We wanted to use the last day without snow for a long hike in the national park Gran Paradiso which is known for its wildlife with ibex, marmot and eagles. We parked the camper van on the public parking space in Valnontey where we slept 2 nights. The campsite was already closed when we arrived,…

A hike on Hintere Schöntaufspitze (3325m)

After a peaceful night we got ready for the planned hike to the summit of the Hintere Schöntaufspitze. We decided to make use of the cable car to climb the first meters of height, still around 700 meters of height left. If the weather would have been good the place is perfect for a mountain…

On our way to Sulden or how to survive narrow pass roads

The weather starts to change and rain is forecasted almost all over Europe. We were looking for the next place to stop by and decided to head to Sulden to conquer an easy 3000+ summit. The weather forecast was not great but okay. We decided to take scenic routes to reach Sulden from Levico Terme…

Enjoying a week at Lago di Levico

2020 has been a different year for everybody so far. While we took social distancing very serious we also did not go on vacation, even not on road trips, whilst this would have been a safe thing to do. Thus we decided to start our 3 weeks roadtrip at the end of the summer holidays…

Riva del Garda – Ferrata Via dell’Amicizia

We arrived at Riva del Garda yesterday after a 6 hours drive from Zermatt over the Simplon pass road (by the way – epic Swiss scenery again on the pass). The landscape changed a lot once the pass was behind us – summer holiday vacation feeling is on! We got a spot for the camper…

How to fall in love with Zermatt

We planned to stay 2 nights in Zermatt, while I am writing this post we are spending our forth one in Täsch, Camping Alphubel, close to Zermatt. Zermatt and the surrounding mountains are simply so beautiful and fascinating that we had to stay longer to explore more of this special location. A mecca for MTB…
