Windsor Castle and Savill Garden

20. October 2017 Urban Trails 0
If you are looking to spend your weekend away from the crowded city then heading down to Windsor is a great choice. A town situated in southeast England on river Thames. Before leaving make sure to cross the bridge to Eton on the other side of the river. Depending on how much time you have this ...

How not to climb Mont Blanc

20. August 2017 Travel Journal 0
  A summit and a safe return is still a success but there is so much more behind that.   We planned the trip well in advance but the mountain had something else planned for us. Just days before departure the routes on Aiguille du Tour closed due to hot weather. But the forecast looked ...

The king of mountains, the legend itself, Ueli Steck today 30th of March 2017 has passed away. He will live in our hearts, the ones that had him as an idol. A true inspiration for me and many others.   I found myself stuck in a phase of denial from the moment I heard the ...

La Crémerie – Argentière

03. April 2017 Travel Journal 0
My winter trip to Chamonix didn’t turn up exactly as planned but still had some good days out. Since Cogne wasn’t a viable option anymore I had to find a closer location. Would have liked to go up to Mer de Glace but couldn’t find any partner. La Crémerie was minutes away from where I’ve stayed ...

Mont Blanc Massif – Aguille du Midi / Tacul

This season, winter has decided to come later in Scotland. I didn’t have enough patience to wait as I was eager to go out so plan B came in play. Would have liked to head to Cogne but couldn’t find anybody to join me for the full 5 days. I always enjoy going back to ...

Vienna – Austria

If is something I can say about it, is that I absolutely love it! While Praga it’s a city that I always enjoy returning to, Vienna is the city I’d like to live in. Offer me a job and I would move without blinking. The perfect combination between past and present – Modern meets Baroque ...

Victorinox Classic small pocket knife

More of a “good for everything” than an outdoor knife, this little fella always comes in handy when you need something sharp. In fact has been so useful that my Mora Clipper is still brand new after carrying it in my pack for a month through Alps. Is one of those things that you never ...

Petzl Elios climbing helmet

25. January 2017 Reviews 0
Four years of use and no damage. I really don’t feel the need to test it’s durability and thankfully so far I’ve dodged the bullet. Nevertheless it served me well and if I were to go back it will still be the one to choose from the many other on the market. Not a fan ...

Outdoor Research Stormtracker Gloves

16. January 2017 Reviews 0
What better time to talk about a pair of gloves if not in winter. They’re three years old and still counting, with plenty of life left in them. My first pair of branded gloves, purchased initially for winter use, but turned out not to be as warms as I have hoped. Nevertheless one of the ...

Cleaning and Care Products: Nikwax & Granger’s

02. January 2017 Reviews 0
As we’re already heading into mid winter most of us have already stored the summer shoes in favour of a more warmer boot. I never could understand how some people store their footwear dirty and expect maximum performance every year. Being slightly obsessed with cleanliness, what bothered me the most, was perhaps the idea of how ...
