Instagram is not the ideal platform to share certain photos and stories. Here, I want to take you on visual journey with me and share some stories and thoughts behind the pictures.

Most of it will take place during my favourite times in the mountains: dawn and dusk. During these times, the light is soft, the mountain peaks are glowing and the mood is special. However, there will also be exceptions.

Stay tuned.

Tenerife – A travel report

In the middle of the wild Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa, the Canary Islands brave the elements. Tenerife is the largest of the archipelago and also the most diverse. Rugged cliffs, black sand beaches, enchanted forests and moon-like volcanic landscapes. Towering above it all is the mighty Teide, Spain’s highest mountain at 3,718 metres. Sounds like a good mix of beach holiday and hiking.


After the rain

The rain has stopped some hours ago. However, clouds are still clinging to the mountain slopes, creating a mystic atmosphere. 


Hiking Wisdoms

When hiking there is lots of time to think and philosophize about life, especially when being on a solo tour. In this second episode I want to share some of my philosophical wisdoms I gained during two tours. (Do not take it too serious, irony involved)
