El fin del mundo! Here I am now. At the end of the world. The last stop of my travels in Patagonia. The southernmost city of the Americas (or at least the southernmost decently sized city). I like it here. It’s located in between mountains and the Beagle Channel. When I arrived it was so… Read More Tierra del Fuego II – Ushuaia
I am doing the w – trek, a five day hike in the Torres del Paine National Park. Worst thing about it – no internet. 6 weeks ago I have pre-booked two nights in refugio dorm beds and two nights on campgrounds including full board. They also give you a tent, sleeping bad and a… Read More Torres del Paine National Park
I finally arrived in El Chaltén after being on the road for 26 hours. Very exciting for me because El Chaltén equals hiking, trail running, mountains, awesomeness. Just hoped the weather wouldn’t be too bad. After checking in me and Graciela, a dutch girl I met on the bus went for a short hike up… Read More El Chaltén, Argentina (Fitz Roy, Lago del Torres)
I made it down to Pucón, a nice tourist place with beautiful wooden houses, lots of shops and restaurants. Despite the crowd here, I like it a lot. It has a nice black lake beach where you can find mainly local tourists, squeezed together under colorful umbrellas. Most foreign tourists come here to climb Volcán… Read More Región de los Lagos – Pucón, Chile
Hi from the Red Center of Australia! The past 5 days I have spent here, now it’s time to move on. I’m really glad I came here, Australia is just so cool – and I think not only the centre. The people, the countryside, the wide flats, the beaches… The wildlife. Ever since I have… Read More Australia – The Outback
I love to hike. Stunning nature combined with physical activity. Jackpot. No surprise some serious hiking plans were made for our trip to Romania’s Carpathian Mountains. Only the weather sucked. But whatever, let’s get the hike on. Minus 1 degree, fog, but 4 layers of clothes and the new hiking boots would do the job.… Read More Getting Lost in Romania. On A Hill. At Night.
— for English, scroll down — ————————————————————————- Mein zweiter Halbmarathon. Ich hatte mir das realistische Ziel gesetzt, das Ganze in 2:06 Stunden, also einer Durchschnittsgeschwindigkeit von 6 min / km zu schaffen. Oder auch etwas schneller. Also fuhr ich am Sonntag mit meinen zwei Strecken-Cheerleaderinnen von Nürnberg nach Pleinfeld am schönen Brombachsee. Das Wetter spielte… Read More Seenlandmarathon – SUB TWO, BABY!
Ever since I saw a picture of Manarola, one of the five villages that make up the Cinque Terre, I wanted to go there and check it out. The region is located in Liguria, Northern Italy and as beautiful as can be. It’s easily accessible through the airport in Pisa – that’s probably why there… Read More Cinque Terre – The Five Lands
Coincidently the weekend I chose to visit Dublin with my husband was the weekend the Rock’n’Roll Marathon Series took place there. Must have been intuition! Of course I signed up for the 10k, because you can never go wrong with that distance – even with a hangover or other unpredictable issues the 10k are always… Read More The Rock’n’Roll Half Marathon Series in Dublin
For Englisch version please scroll down….. Um etwas Abwechslung und Action in meine Läufe zu bringen, wollte ich mal das Trail Running ausprobieren – und habe mich gleich für einen Lauf bei Trampelpfadlauf.de angemeldet. Das sind praktisch Laufgruppen mit einem Guide, so dass man da einfach nur hinterher rennen muss und sich nicht verläuft (bzw. nebenher – ich… Read More The First Time Trail Running
