Beautiful Styria

On our trip through Styria we went hiking near Semriach, came past the Rechberg, visited Frohnleiten and Leoben and ended the day near Liezen – a beautiful region with nice towns and fantastic mountains. We always work in the mornings, which is a nice routine to get up early, have a nice cup of tea …

The lake is actually a reservoir used to generate power, but also serves as a tourist attraction with crystal clear water for …

Walking into Lake Vänern

We had reached lake Vänern, in the south-west of Sweden. It is the largest lake in Sweden, the largest lake in the European Union and the third-largest lake in Europe after Ladoga and Onega in Russia! We came here to explore a trace of the ice age which leads into the lake – Hindens rev. (Parking: 58.572910, 12.914454) Hindens rev is a long, …

The Brufjell cliff hike

The weather forecast was good and we wanted to hike to a very special place at the coast, but on the way there were some more places we wanted to see and we managed to pack it all into one day. Our first stop was at Sogndalsstrand, a little fishing village with old houses where …

The Eigerøy Fyr

South of Stavanger lies an area with such a unique geology that it has been recognised by UNESCO. 900 million years ago, this entire area was a huge magma chamber deep inside the earth. Here you can walk on the same rock as on the moon: Anorthosite. The work of the glaciers turned it into …
